Default 1/8th scale track near Hillsboro, Or?

Heard some rumors of a 1/8th scale track out off highway 26 near Hillsboro? Anyone got any details about this?

Went and introduced myself yesterday to Curtis. The dirt is on site and work on it will begin next week. Dirt looks to have a fairly high clay content. Approximate size will be 110'x86'
Asked about nitro said he's gotta talk to the neighbors but he's on 13 acres just outside of Banks, Or

I'll be out there helping this coming week so I'll get some pictures....there's a dirt oval there right now

How about some news about the track in general. I would love an excuse to buy an 1/8th scale... Especially since the track would be so close. It would be really nice to have a track on the west side.

I am the track owner and I will post up some progress pictures by the end of the weekend. Dirt is kinda hard to work, I have no water or power out there yet and the high clay content is kinda tricky when it is bone dry. The step-up section in the upper left of the track is roughed in (almost 4 feet high) along with the 3 sections prior to the step up and the section right after. Play days should happen around end of summer time frame.

Did not know the news was out quite as far as it is. I guess news spreads fast . I will try and keep the progress updated; I know I would be chomping at the bit for a big track if the shoes were on the other foot.

I think you need 10 posts to post pics. You can post 7 more times to this thread all at once and then post the pics. Or post on facebook.

I am really excited to see the progress. When do you think the first practice day will be?
