Friday night is great if it continues like last week. No Nitro but if the number of entries stays like last Friday, the benefit of that is good. As a business, it's smart too. There are other Nitro tracks around and Pit Stop 1/10 and Slash on Fridays could become a "staple" to the area racing - with higher turnouts too.

Nitro can easily run on Saturdays if Jim wanted to do that. Then everyone would have a day to race.

I hope the turnout this week is just like last Friday. Track was amazing.

Well last week we voted at 9pm to run 3 rounds and we ended around 11-11:30. It was a blast! The track surface was amazing!

I believe they are going to try and start around 6PM. Last week we didn't get started until 6:45.

I wish I could run my GT on Friday night. I would think there would be a way to run us and make sure we were done by 9PM. Maybe run our heats first in rounds 1 and 2, and then run our main as the first race in round 3.

With both XRC and Hobbytown running 1/8 on Saturdays, I just cannot see how we would get a good nitro turnout on a Saturday. It's a shame because the track is great for 1/10 gas trucks and really isn't all that bad for 1/8 buggy either.

Keep it the way it is Electric only. No one complained, the neighbors did not seem to mind so why take a chance on ruining a good thing. You can not make everyone happy. Jim is running a buisness and that was the best turnout he had all year maybe even the past 2 years. So I say lets make this the best place to run 1/10th electric. Lets not complain cause nothing good can come from it. I am not trying to come across as rude but why mess with a good thing. Lets see how it pans out over the next couple of weeks.

Jimmy left me a message to let everyone know that we're going to give out gift certificates this Friday just like we did on Saturdays. Try to get out there by 6pm fellas so we can get it started and get out of there before too late.

Also, I put Pit Stop Hobbies on Facebook if you want to get updates there.

I know this a no brainer but I just came by the shop and it is raining and the track has puddles on it so I would say no racing tonight.
