I wen't down to run a few laps and all i can say is this track is awesome and will be fast.A few tweaks with the corners and back straight and it will be a perfect snowbird style track with wide sweeping corners and plenty of speed.I can't wait to try mod.:eek: He will have it ready for next tuesday so bring the 19 turns out so we can get a groove down.This place is awesome with plenty of pit space and power.He has the j-lap system so you can use your personal transponders.You might wan't to bring a stool though.Theres a restaurant in the building with plenty of good food ( burgers,fries,dogs ect ect) So come down tuesday make a few runs and check it out.Tuesday night and saturday morning are the scheduled race days but the oval will be up wednesdays and he will race that night also if you guys wan't to. Mark Z

P.S. Happy Birthday Nick what are you pushing 60 or so :tongue:

P.S.S. The regionals date has changed to Nov 13th a week later.

There are some bumps around the short edges that we noticed in touring car. But if you hit them with your oval car......your WAY off the line. From what we could tell, the oval driving line is pretty smooth.

Mark's Oval layout!

Hey Mark,
Can't wait to have you and the guys here for our first Tuesday night race. The track is set up the way you asked for. The sweepers are 16' wide and the lanes are 11' wide. I did push the track away from the 8'6" driverstand so the drivers can have a more natural view of the track. This means that the lane closest to the driver stand is more like 20' wide. This way you can have your speed and not get neck cramps! ;) The only thing I am waiting on are the corner dots. I found some 8", orange micro car dots and they should be in on Tuesday afternoon. The PitStop Cafe will be open so there will be plenty of hot and cold food, no need to waste race time at Burger King.

Long time racer new to oval. What are the rules for the 1/10 oval pan class at Hobby Chamber. Also I'm going to be running a 10L4 any set up info for it. I'm a total newbie to oval so any help would be appriciated. I will only be running at Hobby Chamber so a good set up for there is what I realy need. Thanks in advance and hope to see you there on Tuesdays very soon.
