Default VIDEO --RCRCNT- North Texas ONROAD Track

RCRCNT has a very nice video that was taken less than a month ago at our facility during a club race.

We welcome everyone to download the short 4+ minute video and see for yourself the greatly improved track surface at RCRCNT Raceway.

We are sure after you do, you will be excited about joining us for future racing including this years 29th Annual "Texas Biggie" May 26-29th.

Enjoy, and as always your comments are always welcome.

Our thanks to John Dishong for his outstanding work producing the video.

The track surface was "leveled" by filling in low spots and removing the high spots. And then a sand suspended sealer was applied.

The track is awesome and it is not too abrassive that it eats up tires. I ran the entire day (touring car) using 40/40 shores. Its a real fun track to drive now!

You Floridians need to come out! Actually, everyone is more than welcome

Here is a quote from RCRCNT ....

"We used a Coal Tar Sealer (every sealer manufacturer has this type of sealer under different brand names). Coal Tar sealer is bought in a concentrate form and thinned with water. For our full track we purchased 400 gallons of sealer, which we then cut with 100 gallons of water and then added 1lb/ gallon of med grit masonry sand"

Thumbs up Track is AWESOME!

I've been racing on this track for 2+ years now and the traction and consistency
of the track have improved greatly! Previous attemps may not have been
the greatest .... now it's on!! As you can see from the video, my Orange and
Green Mugen looks PLANTED with 35's all around!

Please come out and give it a try! It's worth the trip to run at this great Facility!

Terry

EXCELLENT Job on the Video JOHN!!!

No, the SpeedLine GP will be held in Houston at the Gulf Coast Raceway facility, another fine Texas venue.

Wow that's awesome! If I ever have time I'd have to plan a road trip to get out there. Being capable of lasting on a single set of tires all day certainly saves some $$.
