BarCodes seem to work well. We tried blue and gold compound, it didn't seem to matter much.

This place is AWESOME!! Great staff and well stocked. I took my 5.5 year old daughter here this week for "Rookie Racer". Everyone was very nice and helpful.

The track was well maintained and technical. I loved the step up into the right hander, and my Daughters favorite thing besides driving fast down the straight into the wall was the bermed left hander into the jumps.

We can not wait to get back here.
