the only bad thing with this track is the member fees, then you pay club fees on top of that. unless something changed?

Now I remember It. That's the track that was built at a flying field, and you cant get in without insurance. I remember the buzz a few months ago when they started building. looks like fun, love to try it some day

Default Track Changes

A few things have changed. They are ROAR approved so you do need to be a ROAR member but not a club member for race days. They have made many improvements with the track! Roar membership is $15.00 for the day or $30.00 for the year. Only downside is there is limited power so if you have a generator might want to bring it along. See ya there!

Default track

I went to the race last night and had fun. The track is fun and great for 10th and 8th scale but most of the cars were 1/5 scale, I think they had 14. The transponder system is a KO system and you have to use House transponders and they plug into the RX Box, I just raced with out one. This track would make a good series track, it took me 50min to get there from the 60 and Higley and the track is like 6 miles from the Florence Prison. Last night was the first race on the track and I think they are going to race once a mounth. The guys that run the track are cool and the race went smooth. I ran Losi Step Pins (Kit tires) and it was great.
