Sounds good. We're planning a big race for onroad this year. 1st place cash pay
outs. We still need to work on our driver's stand. We have an offroad and concrete
oval crowd tomorrow. Running touring cars on the oval has been hot the last
two months. We'll keep ya'll posted. I gotta get with Mark yet too about some
onroad races.

Sorry about that... Let's not schedule a big race on the same date as the Bass Pro Races, because I for one would like to come to your track and run, but I can't on the dates of the Bass Pro races, because I'm runing them...

I know a number of the folks here in Jackson want to come over to your track and run... both off-road and on-road....

The most popular last year was the stock TC3's and some 4's, also nitro TC's and
some Associateds. I run a stock TC3.

Hi guys. Sorry to have lost touch with you. The Pelham gang might be back this year. I'm still running the same slow HPI nitro touring. It will be great to hear from you again. Such a nice track and nice folks, Thanks

Hey BILL, good to hear from you. Still working on motorcycles? Track has only seen
a couple of races since you last came. We had about 4+ months last year with NO
racers. Got a partial driver's stand, got dibs on another to double its size. Weather
has taken a toll.

Also our website has not been updated yet. Scroll down on the front
page www.hobbyraceway.com and you'll see it in bold red. We're
every 1st and 3rd Saturday now.

I'm still working on bikes but I'm in a position where I could sneak off at 12 a couple times a month, that would put me down there at 1 so I would have a hour to practice and I need it to keep up with you young guys. I'm 50 years old y'all need to cut me some slack. Can we get up enough nitro touring interest?

Bill, haven't had any. COOPERS still has his nitro car. That's the only I know of
right now. We can run you with the electrics though if no others show. We're
going to have a big onroad race sometime this year too.

Saturday's Race Results

Man what a day of racing!!!! The coldest day of the year
and we had the largest turn out!!!!! Five classes and
three tracks! Thanks for everyone's support and most of
all patience! I know our computer system is old and we
need to do some work on our loop fields, but we worked
through it. Hope everyone enjoyed themselves. Nice to
meet Chad and Jason. Always a pleaure to see Freddy and
Brandon return too. And thanks to our oval and onroad
guys that are always there. Here's the results:

#1 NASCAR/RALLY(concrete oval): We have a new face, Mr James took home the gold! Was loose at the beginning but got her warmed up and sticking like glue. Jeff has found
his nitch, running real consistant laps. Everyone was
trying new bodies too!
#2 CLUB SPEC TOURING CAR(onroad): New class we're trying.
Everyone run same batts, motor, and gearing. WELL, I am
not sure about Steve!LOL He took home the gold. This class was geared down, but not the racing! Fun class!
#3 1/8 SCALE BUGGY(offroad): Spencer was your man on this
one. I just couldn't keep my nerves down, maybe next time!
Brandon had some tunning problems but got her going. Man
what alot of speed in this class!
#4 MONSTER TRUCK(offroad): No stranger-Spencer again. Jeff
was kicking some serious consistant laps. Anyone that can
go from pan car oval to monster offroad, that's good in my
book. And for Jason, great racing man with that Revo. Get
that Spektrum, and you'll be trouble free!
#5 OUTLAW (Truggy offroad): Cleveland R/C Raceway's man
Freddy tore it up. Always running, stayed clean, and come
out on top. Chad had that Mayhem popping! Lake had the
Pro dialed in but flamed out. I guess my trash talking may
have give him bad luck, sorry Lake. I'll take the blame!LOL! Had fun, see ya'll next time!

Club Spec rules we are trying now:


Any chassis touring car

No more than a 2000 battery stick pack(not matched)

Trinity Spec Rebuildable Motor (21 turn)

All cars are geared close together


Right now we are running 2000nimh packs and they have good punch and plenty of run time. Running any kind of tire right now trying to find what will run best and use up some of our older ones.

Anyone with a TC3 the gear is a 75 spur and 22 pinion. Steve found us a website that we can match almost any car.


Any other questions just post. This is just getting started and trying to make it fun and less expensive for everybody.

Lake and I will be out of town this weekend. COOPERS will have the computer.
I know that there will be some oval/onroad guys there, not sure about the offroad
dudes.
