How many 1/8 nitro truggies for Sunday? I could be persuaded to come race if there is atleast 3 others. Was going to leave for McCullough's this morning then found out it was a trophy race AND I need to be home by 6PM tonight.

Free tomorrow...hopefully some truggy racers can commit.

Rob, I'm unable to attend your RMDH charity race due to a wedding in the family...however is it too late to be a sponsor? Fantastic cause, hopefully you can attend the Race Against Cancer at McCulloughs in September.

Scott, I know of two truggys that will for sure be there. You would make three. See you all tomorrow. Shed open at 12, racing at 1. We will race for a trophy in one class. Which ever class has the biggest turnout will be the trophy race.

Does anyone run 4x4 mod short course here at Altoona? I wouldn't mind making a trip up, and I could probably find a good many others.

Default 1st Race of the season

First of all, I want to Thank everyone for coming out.

Congrats to Brent Benedict for his SCT Trophy win. The handicap accessibility elevated him and he drove flawlessly from his new vantage point.

Congrats to Sam Crawford for his 1/8th Nitro Buggy Trophy win.

6 SCT and 7 Buggy Entries for an Opening day.

EVERYONE had a blast. Gained 3 new members today, possibly a 4th. Thank you again guys.

I know of 2 4x4 SCTs locally, gather your buddies up and we will run a class of them.

Race day is Saturday next weekend.

Man, first day back at Altoona in almost a year! Surprised and impressed by the track!!!! Totally the opposite lay out from LCRC. Toona is tight and technical, I really enjoyed it. The surface was smooth and packed. Just like Arnold, I'll be back...............

Default Dirt Oval Status

We will be starting to build the Oval track this week. Once the next few days of rain is over.

Surface for the Oval will be clay. The Oval track driver stand will be started also. It will be 8 feet overall height, 24 feet long, with a specific area for handicap drivers. 15 foot wide lanes with a 12 inch grade from outside edge to infield, completely banked including straight-aways

Thank you Tom, for the positive feedback and for racing with us today. It was nice to see you out there after so long.

I will figure out the "Cube theory" for the track. Ghost berm is certainly a coming attraction.
