I got to go by the Thunderdome yesterday after racing minis at Laser Products. The building is way bigger than I thought. I never raced at Impact. A lot of clean up left and painting.to be done. The floor needs to be prepped and the subfloor and carpet installed. The Sidewinderz Mini racers will be the first to race there. The RCP track can be installed in a MUCH shorter time. And it won't be long! I'll post pics as progress is made.

I don't think your time line is right . I heard from a trusted person that the asphalt track deal fell through.

Yes. Iíve heard they have moved up things at Thunderdome since that deal fell through. Originally, fall seemed to be the plan

Making progress! Carpet has been ordered. Can't predict an opening date, but it will be sooner than later!

Talented Graphic Designer and RC Racer Allen Eisbrener came up with the logo for the ThunderDome. Another step closer to having a great indoor facility to compete with our race cars!
