Due to the crappy weather, Racing is postponed for tomorrow, the 1st. We will have a work day instead if it's not raining. Track repairs/adjustments will be made first. After that cars will be permitted to run if you really feel the need. A high of 48* is predicted with wind and spotty showers.

A decision has not been reached on the following weekend.. Mom's Day.. We'll decide tomorrow. Spring in Chi-Town.. Geeesh

We do run 1/8th open. We haven't run a full program at this track yet. Their are quite a few Scales around the area here. A full heat is a definite possibility.Their will be 4-5 heats when we have our leg of the MWS in June, the 11th,12th. Keep checking here for results and info.

Hey Nick

I can't say I am surprised. I will see you all on another day.
I look forward to racing with you all.

Have a great day.

I copied this from TeamNitro's FB page. This news concerns this weekend! Seems that the club couldn't decide which day to race on. So, we did what most die hard racers do... After talking to the Race Director, both days will be test and tune days. But, That's a great thing! The track will be prepped and timing and scoring will be up BOTH days! This early in the season, we want to make sure the track is racer friendly ,(it is,) and we have a new scoring system (LiveTime) that we have to to get a feel for. The kiosk will be in place to get your printed lap times. Both days will be treated as race days as far as track prep goes. A thorough cleaning and then it will be sprayed with our traction additive..sugar water,, All classes are welcome! Track will be ready both days at 10:30am. A practice fee will be charged..$8. A Roar card will be necessary, as usual. If you haven't already, please see our website for all rules and club dates. A lot of hard work by dedicated RC Racers went into this new location. This special weekend is a great time to check it out!

Did some painting at the track with Ken E. today. Rich P. came out with his Serpent 977 and he made some pretty impressive laps on an untreated surface. Made an adjustment to the layout to avoid an indent in the asphalt. Should be a great day tomorrow with a properly prepped track! Hope to see ya there!

Props to the hearty souls who came out yesterday. It turned chilly and windy, but the track was really good. Ken got the LiveTime up and running and it will be a valuable tool for tuning. The printed lap times won't lie. Getting ready to head over now. No rain means track prep should pretty easy. Hope to see you there.

Reminder... Most TN members will be in Toledo for the MWS Race. Of course, it's going to be an awesome weekend, weather-wise. I know a couple of guys aren't traveling, maybe they'll have something going on. I was there today, the track looked great. Bernard K. was practicing. Car looked stable on an untreated track. Take advantage, get some practice in.

It seems another holiday has racers thinking through their plans for the upcoming Memorial Holiday.So, it seems some want to travel and race..Which day is going to work? TeamNitro is willing to compromise without sacrificing quality This Saturday will be a TnT, with full track prep and timing. This would be a great day to get dialed in a non-competitive atmosphere. Track will be ready at 10. Take advantage of this opportunity to get ready for our hosting of the next leg of the MWS.(6-10,11,12) Anyone who has participated in a MWS race will be charged a reduced rate of $5. All others, the usual bargain price!
Sunday is a regular race day. Track will be ready at 10am. Looking forward to seeing everyone! GoodRacing! .
