I think the forecast is for thunderstorms, instead of the widespread showers we got all last weekend.

It looks like I will be in town for once, so I look forward to helping however I can.

Thank you to everyone that came out today on last minute notice...it was really really helpful and MOST APPRECIATED!

We got a good start and should have something to work with at the end of the day tomorrow. We'll be fine tuning for awhile as we go forward..


The track will be Nitro AND Electric friendly and, the entire track layout will be used for both types of racing for now. Pics are attached from today! Also up on FB

The WEBSITE construction has begun as well! Should be usable pages in a day or two...you can see the beginning of the work here... www.oklahomanitroclub.com

Our official address is 425 B, N. 11th, Yukon OK 73099


The plan for Sunday is to work on the track for a few hours after Church services, or early to mid afternoon. We can accomplish a lot in a few hours from this point.

We will try to put a worknight in next week too to complete the pit tables and probably pit lane.


Hats off to Jon Wright for locating the dirt, I think it may end up being some of the best I've been on...better have a pair of track shoes that look good with RED on them...lol


PLEASE NOTE...THE TRACK IS NOT OPEN!

It will be announced when it is ready as well as a schedule of when racing and practice will be available. We are attempting to keep it like that in an attempt to keep the track in the best racing condition at all times. Please spread the word

Please respond to this email if you have any questions, anytime

Thank You
Jason Grant

Pics of the piped off current layout. Still need some small type grooming here and there but the layout flows pretty nice.

Lots of work, but it is really coming together. Thanks to everyone that has been busting their butts to make this happen. From donations, to materials, to paperwork, to labor. Also to the wives and families that have donated their family members for what seemed like days at a time lol.

OK, my version of the full layout sucked by comparison to what a friend of mine did. ApexSpeed here on rctech takes the credit for it. See the attachment. It looks great.

Here are some more pics of the drivers stand. As Jason stated, we still got a few more things to complete on it, but for the most part this is what it will be until we add on to it more in the future.
