Forecast doesn't look too bad - calling for a couple mid afternoon showers - hopefully enough to just wet the track :-)

Someone asked the same question on the Facebook group and Nick said they'd make the call by 6:00AM Sunday morning.

Rained a lot here yesterday and again today. I am 17 miles from the track but I was looking at weather radar and it seemed to also be over the track. Donna saod Charlie was at the track earlier this evening to try and get rid of the puddles.

For those who didn't read - news about Critters:


So a couple of rumors have been circulating about the track at Critters. So lets set the facts straight.

Its a tough economy in our Hobby, and the Summer Season is always hard on regional indoor tracks, and Critters is no exception. At this stage, Critters has had to look at its options and future, and has made the decision to close to the Indoor 1/10th Dirt Track.

The Good news - A small team of Critters friends and regulars have stepped up to take over the indoor dirt track for the forseable future. The track will be changing names, and operating as a seperate entity from the Hobby Shop. Critters, the Hobby Shop will remain open as normal.

The owners of the new track will operate the track initially to achieve two fundemental goals; Firstly, to keep the only Dirt Indoor Track in NJ alive and secondly, to pay the rent!

The new track owners are excited at the opportunities ahead, for Offroad 1/10th Indoor racing in the region. Some of the ideas being proposed are:
- 2 Weekly Club Races
- Club Membership with discounted fees, extended access, potential discounts at the hobby store.
- Sportsman classes encouraged and promoted
- Alighnment with other local tracks & Clubs
- Track apparel.
- Special events & More.

Watch this space for our Launch, News and Updates.

In the meantime, the next scheduled Critters Club Race will be June 9th.

-----------------------

I'm personally involved and am hoping we can make the track more appealing to the Novice/Intermediate crowd at DR - Hoping to get a Sportsman class going, maybe Stock Slash also, and possibly offering incentives for DR Club Racers. More news soon
