Default Looking to race in PA

I am looking for a short course racetrack in PA. I live in Catawissa, PA. About an hour and a half north of Harrisburg. Does anyone know of an active racetrack around this area? All the tracks I used to know of/ race at are long gone. Me and a friend are looking to race 2wd and 4wd mod classes.

Theres Trains and Lanes outdoor track in Easton, PA that has a turnout for 2wd most weekends. Than theres Hobby Hut raceway in Aububon, PA could use more 4wd SC there .

Yep, most of the time trains and lanes will have those classes, and its the spot to be with the layout they have. Also they have a store stocked will almost as much stuff as online shops. Get gridirons med for tires and youll be good! Hope to see ya at the track!

When you say 2wd and 4wd I'm guessing you guys race 1/10 scale?

There is GrindLab in Camp Hill, pa that just opened their offroad track for racing this past Saturday. And they are running 1/10 scale every Saturday. The track was designed by Frank Henry who is one of the best track designers out there and is a very good technical track to race on.
Address: 2500 Gettysburg Rd, Camp Hill, PA 17011

Another is Bumps and Jumps in Etters, PA, just 15 minutes down the road from grindlab, they run 1/10 indoor on sundays during the winter. Another Great place to race. Offroad layout changes from time to time during the winter and keeps you guessing. Address: 643 Old York Rd, Etters, PA 17319

Thank you all for the info. Glad to see the hobby is still around here. I used to race stadium trucks at Little Plum in Lock Haven, but they have since closed. I was looking to race at Hobby Headquarters but theyhave also closed.

Yes, we will be racing 1/10 scale short course. I have a xxx-sct and my buddy has a TEN-SCTE. I have some things to get before my truck is ready and I'm going over to help build my buddy's truck Friday night. I'd say it will be a month or so before we are race ready.
