Default DRCW Raceway Chesapeake, VA // Asphalt / Indoor Off Road / Outdoor Off Road

It's time to start a new thread to combine all the types of racing offered at Debbies RC World in Chesapeake, Virginia. Located at 1828 South Military Highway, Debbie's offers a 96 x 40 indoor dirt track, a 140 x 60 "smooth" asphalt track with full drag strip, and a 140 x 60 offroad track. Let the discussions begin.

the new and improved track is half way done. it is ready to race for tomorrow. the inside borders are not secured down yet. the next race they will be painted and installed. just looking at the track tonight their are going to be alot of different layouts. each race their will be a new layout, and the layout will not be done until saturday morning so no one will have the advantage. i would like to thank Nancy, john hockman, dave, tony rumble and tony for your help. here in the near future we are hoping to have a two day race trophy race. thanks again.

Way to go Chief. Steppin' up and takin' charge. The track is really coming along and looks awesome. Can't wait to finish it. Kids will be in Florida next week, so I've got time to work.

Okay, first off. After looking at the first pics of the track, I was a little disappointed. The track looked very tight and looked like all the fast parts of the track had been removed. After running on the track, I must give props to Fred, Nancy, Jamison, Tony, and whoever else worked on the track. Good job and thanks for the time and hard work you put into the track. It's obviously not done yet, it has some tweaks here and there to be made but, it's a great start and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

On another note concerning making the track better, I found this sprayer at northern and think it would be a great way to. If we get together and everyone donate say five or ten bucks, we could easily purchase this sprayer and spray the entire track every asphalt race in a reasonable amount of time.

Here is the link. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/too...4108_200394108

Catch you all later.
