Default Possible new track in Meno

If a track were to be built in the Meno/Enid area, how many people would show up? It'd be a work in progress, ie: getting transponders and stuff. But how many people would have interest in going? It'd be a smooth fast track, geared toward 1/10, but 1/8 would be welcomed as well. Any input from anyone?

Outdoor. Nothing crazy huge. No special kind of dirt. I guess more or less it'll be a big back yard track for people to run on. The dirt here is very hard when it's dry for about two/three inches down then very dark and tacky. When it's wet it becomes very slick.

Smile When I found the oppertuinity.

So the Track will be mostly clay composition I would guess. I sure love Oklahoma red dirt. Ran a bunch of Pro series races and a national even on the stuff and you got to have some love for it when it groves up.

When is the completion date known? And if so is there a chance you would participate in the State line showdown between Wichita and Oklahoma area.

When's the State Line Showdown? The completion date isn't know yet, but the area is already being worked on. The only hold up is getting a hold of some transponders and a scoring system. The drivers stand can be worked out, but the scoring systems are way expensive. There's plenty of room for a bunch of people. Power wouldn't be supplied and pop ups are suggested. But hopefully this can be finished sometime soon, and maybe someone knows how to get a hold of a scoring system.

Default State line challenge.

The Stateline challenge is between a track in Wichita KS and Taylor park raceway in Yukon, OK. Go to the Oklahomanitroclub.com and check the calendar for details. Its just a showdown between tracks. usually around 50 entries.

I know a Friend of mine lives in Enid around central ave area. Maybe one of these days I could Bring my stuff to a season opener for you and the track.

Yeah. That would be awesome. Like I said, just the hardest part is getting a scoring system for the track. Or is that what you're talking about bringing?

I wish. I don't have any of that stuff.

I think I would be owning and operating my own track if I could afford that kind of stuff. heck the track that I Run at in yukon Requires that you have a personal transponder. Which to keep track upkeep down I can understand.

At Yukon, if you do not have a personal transponder, then you let the race director know and you will be hand counted.

The Stateline Series for this year is already set, but who knows for next year.

How do you know lap times if you're hand counted? I mean, it could always be ran old school style, the first person to 20 laps wins. Lol.

Your car number coincides with a number on the number pad, and as you pass the loop you car number is pressed.

How often do people race at Yukon? Or tulsa? Or Okalhoma City? Would those people be willing to travel up to this area for a decent size race?

I doubt it. They have onc that pulls a pretty big crowd. Then for 10th scale they run at comp or I think the guys from Okc run in Tulsa which I think they just got clay for their indoor track. That gonna be like trying to get a fat kid to get off the couch to go outside to do yard work and give up his ps3. Just my thought. Good luck.

Im sure if you began to be a part of the state line challenge then people would get off the Butts. I know for a fact if the points mattered then that would be a big factor to consider.
