Thumbs up Carpet Racing in Southern Illinois!!!

About time to start racing on the rug again in Carbondale, IL.

We have a huge 48' by 90' (or so) track with fresh CRC Fast Track carpet.

AMB Auto-Count system.

Bring your own table/chairs...

We will start out running some practice on Wednesday evenings around 5 pm til ???

We will start running on Sundays in a few weeks.

We run anything on-road...1/12, 1/10 Touring, 1/10 World GT

PM me if you need more details.

Wow! If it isn't the famous Jimmy Hacksaw!

I might have to come down your way a few times this year, there's not much to choose from up here.

Are you going to Cleveland this year?

And before anyone asks, no, there will no Rallybu exhibitions this time.

Hey Socko!

Come on, we all loved the Rallybu !

I think the normal crew will be hitting Cleveland again.

I hear that St Louis doesn't have a carpet track at the moment either, so we might pull a few from up that way.

Pack your crap and come run!

See Ya.

Just wondering, do you allow Paragon or is it Jack only?

Paragon is fine for now. Track owner doesn't like it due to smell, but so far hasn't said anything this season. We are all running it right now.

Just to be official and all....

We will be racing on the following Sundays for sure:

Oct 5th, 19th

Good chance we will be there on the other Sundays as well, but you can count on the published dates.

And every Wednesday evening...

Lat 37.395384 Lon 89.154241

From Carbondale, Il. take US 51 south to Old US 51 and take a right at the stoplight. Aprroximatley .5 mile take a right on Cedar lake rd then 1.2 miles on your left there will be a large pole barn.


Drew knows the way.


Any other questions let "jrp", "skipstr" or myself know...

Bring your own table/chair/snacks.

No restrooms in building, but plenty of weeds out back...

McDonalds about a mile or two down the road.

The McDonalds is for something that the weeds can't handle
