The track itself is done, a bit wet with this weather we've been having though Drivers stand was put in last weekend and a retaining wall was installed this week. I'm not 100% the status of a timing and scoring system for this weekend though

Haven't posted in a while but I was in Abilene today and stopped by to check it out. It's not as big as the other Hobbytown's I've seen but they seem to have a good inventory and are really nice people to talk to. Chatted for a bit with them and the guy said they have been trying to run organized races once a month ($5 to race and $5 for transponder rental) but anytime the store is open the track is free to use if I understood correctly. He said they removed a good layer of topsoil and put down clay to try and get a good base. With the rain we've had lately it needs a little grooming but looks pretty decent. He said they've mostly had 1/10th scale (SCT and truggy) but they have seen some 1/8th scale as well. I may need to dust off my truck and give it a try one day.

It sounds like Hobbytown will have their first race on March 5. I plan on being there with a 2wd buggy, and my nephew will most likely (95% sure) be there with a 2wd buggy. Just in case anyone else would be interested in bringing out their 2wd buggy too
