Default Official Indoor Track Info

To our most valuable assets, Our Racers and Fans,

We want to thank everyone for the comments, and advice we received over the past 3 years we have been racing in Rockford. Because of all you Race Em R/C has grown exponentially and we are excited to officially announce Race Em R/C adding another key element to our success and growth.

We have secured a 19,000 sq ft facility on Rockford's South East side. Located right off Bypass 20 with easy access from all locations. The track dimensions are going to be roughly 105' by 70'. The new Facility will feature 80- 32'' X 48" pit tables, with a 16" top shelf. Separate Mens and Ladies Rest Rooms and additional space for future expansion.

While we are working hard to get the new facility built and ready for you to enjoy we want to make sure you all know we are not trying to alienate anyone by keeping the location a secret.. We are simply trying to limit the amount of foot traffic and liability issues with people stopping by for a look. At this point there is not alot to see and with the amount of construction equipment and tools laying around we do not want anyone to get hurt. Over the next few weeks there will be a few opportunities to come take a peek at Rockford's Premier Off Road Radio Controlled Racing Facility. Everything is being built from scratch it takes time, lots of time. We want to be up and Racing before Black Friday and by limiting tours we are able to focus 100% on getting ready for our Grand Opening.

We encourage anyone that wants to donate a few hours of hard work to email the club email and we will be more than happy to give you directions to the new location. We have a ton of work left to be done. Painting, Finishing pit tables to start. Then there comes the project of placing the track barriers and hauling in the dirt.

We at Race Em R/C is working very hard to bring the best facility possible. We have the space to run both 1/10th and 1/8th scale electric vehicles on the Indoor DIRT track. We will also offer state of the art features including video display's of all the races, Race results and Heat sheets. A separate registration room. A lounge area for the kids and a separate private pit area available for monthly pit rentals. We will also feature a centralized Tire washing station, and compressed air for all racers to use.

I know everyone is getting excited and antsy to see the indoor facility. We are to, trust us it will be well worth the wait! This will be the PREMIER indoor facility in the area.

All classes, fee's and race days will be posted after this weekend's Club meeting. Please stay tuned as we will continue to post building pictures on our Facebook!

Thank you for all your continued support, with out you non of this would be possible!

You guys & gals are awesome!!

I have one too. I enjoyed the one time I was able to race it on dirt. Summer was busy (vacations, coaching little league) but winter looks to be open for racing.

That sounds like at least 7 of us with Stadiums! I can think of 2 more that probably still have theirs.
