01-02-2004, 08:03 AM
Hey sorry smoke the in laws didn't have a scanner like I thought they did and this is my first day back to work to get to this scanner. I have a link on our webpage http://www.geocities.com/vanwertraceway/main if you look to the right and down a little you will see a PURPLE link that will take you to the flyer so you can print it off if you want. Sorry about the delay smoke. I will see if I can get one on here yet today.
01-02-2004, 10:37 AM
ok here it is but it is shrunk down so much that I don't think you will be able to read anything. So to read the full flyer go to http://www.geocities.com/vanwertraceway/flyer.html that is a direct link to the flyer page on our website. The last Trpohy race we had went real well Everyone seemed to have a great time and a lot of records fell. If you have any questions just post them and someone from the track will be able to answer them.
go fast turn left :jest:

03-05-2004, 10:56 AM
Well the series is winding down up at the track. I can not speak for any other classes but the Stadium class was tied for first last week and the third place truck was only a couple points behind. It should be a good shoot out to the end. CYA all up there tonight.
04-01-2004, 08:40 PM

04-09-2004, 09:03 PM
I talked to a couple of you racers at Classic in Akron for the ARCOR OPEN, just wanted to know if any of you would be interested in comming over to Mount Vernon and trying out RED FOX RACEWAY? You can check out our website www.redfoxraceway.com. We run on Sunday's. There are some of us that would be interested in comming over to your track and racing some this summer also. Drop me an email for info email@example.com
04-12-2004, 11:46 AM
Well everyone, It has been another great season at Van Wert R/C Raceway but the time has come to close the doors for the summer. We are looking at many options to improve our track even more. I will try to keep everyone posted on what we are looking at doing and the progress. Thanks to everyone who came and raced with us and supported our track. We will see all of you again next season.
08-17-2004, 07:11 PM
Isn't it about time to bring this thread back to the top? That's definitely where you belong, and it's about indoor season again.
08-18-2004, 01:54 AM
You bet Let's Get to the the top. Well it looks like a startup around the middle of September. The board of directors met last week to finalize the purchase of new race surface. Again this year we are trying to provide the best facility we can! Hope to see you all at the races this year!!!
08-18-2004, 05:40 PM
:wave: looking forward to the start and just for russ i can bring the mouse box :devil:
08-18-2004, 07:44 PM
Well it looks like a startup around the middle of September.
Is that before or after the tenth? And are you still racing 1/18th cars?
I'm asking because there's a big 1/18th bash scheduled for the 11th in LaGrange, IN, and it seemed like a good excuse to drop by. I'm a better driver now, honest!
09-19-2004, 09:01 PM
Racers don;t forget the race @ Huntington, In Sept. 26. This race is for Kyle Petty's Victory Junction Kids Camp. Location : Kmart parking lot ( on carpet ).

10-07-2004, 07:53 PM
Are they going to have Stock only Stadium class plus any motor Stadium? I know of 3 for the Stock Motored class right now.
Kewl-I may be able to run 2 stadium classes them. I will have to check out track Friday nite.

10-08-2004, 07:33 AM
BIG .......i can not wait
10-11-2004, 07:39 AM
My lord it's big! The guys at Van Wert Raceway have done it again. The walls came tumblin down and the small bullring track is no more! In the third remodeling project in three years, the crew at Van Wert Raceway have continued to make their facility one of the coolest in the state. No.... make that the country. Their newly configured track is 165ft. with around a 120ft to 130 ft runline. They have new pits, video monitoring, a great sound system, a hobbyshop, and some of the nicest and coolest racers to be had anywhere! In my 25+ years of racing I have never seen a group of guys make such an effort to provide their racers with this awsome of a facility. YOU REALLY NEED TO CHECK IT OUT! Fiday night racing, track opens at 6:00 with racing starting at 8:00. For more info call 419-232-2112 or visit the website at (see next post)
10-11-2004, 07:40 AM
this was copyed from a earlier post from Russell
10-11-2004, 10:48 AM
Hey guys I was want to put the word out to everyone that we are trying to get people in the region to come down to New Castle Indiana for some 4 cell mod, 19t and stock racing on Nov 6th. The track is 160 ft run line super high bite carpet and you can run paragon. The track is in the local Moose lodge so they have a bar and food on site, even a waitress too! There are already guys coming from Wisconsin, Ohio, and Kentucky. This is a one day show and we are thinking about going to Cincinati on Sunday to race on the new track they have down there. If you are interested check out the posts on here for the track in New Castle Indiana. Hope to see some of you there.
10-13-2004, 08:07 AM
Papamerkle - Yes we are running 2 classes of stadium. There will be a stock motor only class buggies and trucks. and a mod class which you can run mod or stock motor for buggies and trucks. Hope to see you up there running again so you can give me a good butt woopin.
10-13-2004, 12:53 PM
hey guys just wanted to let you know that Summit R/C raceway is open for carpet oval and we start races at 5pm sat nights registration ends at 4pm. We have done some uprades to the track and faciliteis so come on over to Fort Wayne and check Summit R/C raceway out.
web site is: www.fwsarc.8m.com
10-13-2004, 04:55 PM
Track is huge. I may have to put a good motor in my truck this year :D .
10-15-2004, 02:05 PM
yeah papa I think I you could even handle a mod in a stadium truck now. Maybe not, but there is only one way to find out. I guess I have a motor change to do tonight. Oh by the way you may want to stiffen your shocks now and put some blue tires on before coming up because the track has SUPER traction and greens on a stadium truck get ripped up quick (trust me I know "parts are parts")
10-17-2004, 10:48 PM
Any room for a DODGEm? :tongue: :D
