Default From Sioux Falls. Getting into RC. info needed...

Hello, I am from Sioux Falls and want to get into RC Racing. My brother races in WA with 1/10 scale electric pan cars as well as 1/10 scale electric touring. My interest is that, on carpet, road racing. To see what I've seen, google timezone racing rc. Outdoor road and indoor carpet road. They are having the indoor carpet nationals at timezone II in March, and I am looking for places within the Sioux Falls area to race. As I mentioned, I will probably start with 1/10 scale rubber touring road racing. Does anyone have any info on where and when I could race? I'm not afraid to travel..

Thank you!

Josh Holt

Well I live in the Twin Cities, but I think I heard they are doing some indoor carpet oval somewhere in the Sioux Falls. There is a user here BSchorr (Ben Schorr) and he lives in Sioux Falls, so he would probably be the best one to inform you.

Now there is talks of a Indoor Track opening in Marshall, MN. The track is there, but the guy who owns it thus far has just used it for his own use. He is a very nice guy and has been known to let people come and run on it. He actually bought the carpet and barriers from the track in Florida where they run the Snowbirds Nationals.

Other than that, carpet options would either be Minot, Omaha, or up in the cites at MMR Raceway.

I am here.... to save the day!!!!! I keep forgetting to check this part of the forums.

Sioux Falls has a club called RC Xtreme Racing.

http://www.rcxracing.proboards.com is the forum. (Must register first to see the forum)

We race indoor oval and road course carpet Saturday's inside the Legends Baseball Training Facility on Cliff Ave. between E. 10th St. and Rice St. on the east side of town.

Current classes consist of...

~Road Course~
1. 17.5 Stock Rubber Sedan
2. 17.5 Stock Truck or RTR Trucks

~Oval~
1. 17.5 EDM
2. 10.5 EDM
3. 17.5 10th Scale Sprints
4. Box Stock 18th Scale Mini Latemodels
5. Box Stock 18th Scale Mini Sprinters
4. Novice Oval (Ends up being any cars that the kids have to run the oval...)

That sums it up in a nutshell for classes. Register on the forums and ALOT of the info can be found there from our previous discussions. Schedule can be found there also.

(Forget about that link that.. KNR posted.. I lost certain files to keep updating that site I made.. Towards summer. Ill rebuild the site when time and beer allows..

We race offroad dirt and dirt oval in the Summer time in Hartford, SD at the I-90 Hartford Speed way also...

Hey Josh, its Adam from HobbyTown in SF. Just wanted to say hi and tell you that we also have a Sioux Falls Racers forum and a 1/14th Recoil forum too. Glad to see your new body turned out well, and we'll see you at the track on Friday.
