Location? Is it going to be at the old A-main or somewhere new?

Sounds exciting, I'm looking forward to racing there...

Amazing. But commuting from Costa Mesa will be a bummer.

I might have to pick up something and come play. Anyone have a cheap car or truck for sale? Not a slash.

The track dimensions arent fully set yet, we are working on a few things. I will have more info next week.

Yes, 1/10 off-road...maybe 1/8 electric if there is enough room.

I am currently in Arizona right now for the NitroCross World Finals. I get back into Portland on Tuesday night. By then Jim and some buddies should have a good start on things.
