Even though I was not at this race I can tell you that I have been at this track many times and from what I understand... They had a real good turn out last Friday (08-06-04). You will never find a better group of people racing R/C and some of the fastest R/C vehicles I have ever seen has been at this track. The rules are simple... "NO WHINING!). In addition... The track director "Frenchie" will bend over backwords to make sure that your car is running top notch.
Our next race date is Fri. 8-20-04.
Races start at 7:30 pm.
The first nite of racing had 13 entries, we are expecting more this Fri.
Hope to see everyone at the track.
The race date has been changed to Sat. 8-21-04.
The track will be open for practice all morning.
Races will start around 1:00 pm
Where's Parchment? I was up in MI a week ago and couldn't find a track to save my life.
Parchment is just north of Kalamazoo, Mi.
It is so close to Kalamazoo it could be a suburb of.
Hello Butch,

I am glad to see you are starting some oval track racing in Kalamazoo. Are you thinking about starting some carpet racing?

What classes are you trying to grow? Stock truck, Legends, Bolink Sprinters, Pan cars (4 cell stock, 19 turn, spec, etc)

Do you have electric available? Do we need to bring tables and chairs?

Are you planning to hold the races on Saturday or Friday? How often do plan on holding races? How long do you plan to hold races this year?

I live up by Mt. Pleasant, but I have family near Kalamazoo.
