Default 1/10 and 1/8 scale in Fresno, CA.

The first race date is Nov. 25 It will be at the Fresno Fairgrounds off the Kings Canyon entrance. We are going to run gas and electric. Vht is part of the traction process as well as other junlge juice. Setup starts at 8:00am and practices starts after that you must help set up and tear down if you want to race. Entry is 20.00 for the first, 15.00 for the second and 10.00 for the third on. There is no power so you need to bring your own generators. Food is near by. This will be the first layout.

Congradulations on getting a new track going at the fairgrounds! I hope people will take advantage of the great opportunity you are affording them. When you get a group of guys setting up the track and blowing it off it doesn't take very long and same with the tear down. True racers will be there to help you. Let the others go home!!!!

I am in Phoenix and have lived in Fresno for many years. If I am up that way I certainly will bring the cars and race with you guys!!!

Good luck to all of you!

I run 1/8th and I was wondering if you expect a decent turnout for this class or are you more geared toward sedan? It seems the layout dimensions are a bit small for 1/8. Will it be indoors?

Any info is appreciated

The responces for 1/8 has been more overwhelming than anything else. I expect a very good turnout. Track is still big enough revelations full fenced from what I am told is 100x 200 so we are right in there in size and revelations is a competitive place to race. The lanes will be 15 ft wide. 12 at minimum
