Default Off-Road Racing @ WS Raceway - Paxton, IL

Hey guys,

I'm thrilled to be able to tell you about my new off-road track. It's a dirt, off-road track located in Paxton, IL (zip 60957) just 20 miles north of Champaign-Urbana. I plan to offer practice on Weds and racing on Sundays. This Weds and Sunday will be open for practice and racing.

If you have any questions, please post here or PM me.

Please see my site below for more info:

Thanks,
Adam WS Raceway

Default Pictures

I've attached a few pictures of the pits and track.

The first 50 people who practice or race will be entered to win a large Team Associated pit bag. Also, I will be giving out some door prizes this weekend.

Hope to see you soon!

Who is interested in some off-road racing this weekend? I think we got a few guys ready to come out Sunday. We could always use more.

I have two SC10s that have run up at Joliet but there weren't any kids racing up there. My 10 year old and I would like to come up and race with our 17.5s the following Sunday if its Ok. They both have MyLaps. I hope you have a good show. Let us know how it goes. J-

That sounds great. Tell your friends, we need some regular racers coming to make it fun. I don't think it will take long at all to get a strong SC class going. I've received emails from a few SC guys already. I know there is another guy from Watseka interested in bringing his son to race with him.

I'm still handing out door prizes and entering people to win that Associated pit bag. Also, this weekend I'll hand out one LiPo/NiMH battery case to anyone who races or practices.

The address is 1977 E. 600 N., Paxton, IL 60957. This is basically right off of route 45 - about 1-1/2 miles north of Paxton. The track is clay with approximate track size of 40x80.

I've never met Steve.

Let me know if you need more info,
Adam

Default Tires

We are just starting to race now. This is the first offical week I've been open for racing.

As for tires, most small pin tires have worked well. I've been running AKA Grid Irons on my SC10 and it seems to be hooked up.

Question: I know of a few people who bought RTR trucks and are relatively new like myself. Are the races going to be mandated certain specs to start or more of a race what you have? Thanks
