Default Hi Mike

Hello Mike,

My name is Rob. I am the new owner of the Altoona Raceway. I bought the track at the end of July. Big changes have already been made and many many more to come.

Our new site is http://www.altoonaraceway.net

Alot of questions can be answered there. Any other questions can be posted here or you can email me personally at :

[email protected]

Make sure you check out the membership page on the site. A full race day free ( Unlimited classes on a Club race day ) for pre-purchasing your 2010 membership.

We look forward to meeting you and racing with you.

Rob

Mike, get ahold of me! If you do not have my # pm me. We are under new ownership, and a lot of changes have been made. Are you moving close to Altoona?

Rob looks like things are moving along. Guys up your way shuld be happy to have an owner that is so hands on and wants to give the racers the best track possible. Hats off to you. I'm sure I will make it up for a race or two this spring/summer.

Thumbs up

I'm glad there track is under new management. Maybe I can actually pit for you Brad without someone cursing at me while trying to pit for you. Thank You Rob for adding track rules to the website, hopefully everyone will read them. Its kind of embarassing to see a grown man get pissed off and kick his 1/8 buggy around because of his poor driving. Just to let everyone know my new residence will be located at E. Freedom near the Walmart next to I-99. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon. Can't wait to run my 8ight 2.0.

Welcome Mike.

My first and foremost goal for the track was to make it a place people enjoyed coming to. Cursing, throwing tantrums and bad customer service is gone. My members are my friends, not dollar symbols to me. I do not care if you run a LOSI, MUGEN or Duratrax. If I can look across the Raceway and see smiles, That makes it all worthwhile.

Making a better track, adding an oval, adding handicap accessibility, electricity on site, safer driver stands, donating to local fund raisers and toy drives, are just extras that come along with being a fun place.

We WILL have one of the BEST R/C facilities in PA. You have my word on that!!

Very nice Mike. I wish I could Airbrush.

Buggy and Truggy drivers,,, I will also be offering mud guards at the track this year. I have a manufacturer from CA making them for me. They will be only $5.00 a pair. These things are a heavier plastic than what you buy from all the online places and come with the longer screws. I will post pictures in the next day or two.

Altoona Raceway stickers will be here on Wednesday. My sticker guy had a computer crash. Membership packets will ship then.

I even realized I had some T-shirts left over too. I will check the available sizes tomorrow.

Sweat-shirts are in the works as we speak also.

Brayden and I are looking forward to racing in 2010. I have his slash all ready to go but my 8th scale is in bad shape. Have a couple more months to work on it.

I only have old IB3800's for the Slash...is everyone else running LiPo? Haven't run much electric in recent years. I would like to run my old Kyosho gas truck this year too.
