There was an excellent turn out this past weekend for the 1st Midwest series race. There were over 80 entries spread over multiple classes (F1, 1/12th scale, 17.5 TC, USGT, VTA).

Glad to see everyone at the track this past weekend and look forward to seeing everyone again on January 17th :)

Great turn out this past weekend, with 6 full heats of racing.

VTA (x1)
USGT (x2)
F1 (x1)
17.5 Sedan (x1)
1/12th (x1)

Traction started out lower, but built as the day went on - the new layout was fun!

Hope to see everyone again on Sunday (Jan 24th).

This past weekend, we had 6 full heats of racing, which made for a fun day of racing. Considering there were several racers attending round 2 of the traveling points series, that was very good.

VTA (x2)
USGT (x1)
F1 (x1)
17.5 Sedan (x1)
1/12th (x1)

The new track layout was up and as traction came up quickly, leading to some very fast lap times (sub 8 sec for TC and 1/12th scale).

Hope to see everyone again next Sunday

Girl Scout Cookies
My daughters are selling girl scout cookies again this year. They were able to get a few cases in advance of the official selling window. I will have them at the track on Sunday if anyone is interested - $4/box

racing usually starts at noon on Sundays. this coming Sunday, April 10th, is the final onroad race day for winter season. Should be a good time so hopefully many people come out to race one last time before next season (October) !

Glad to see everyone at the track this past Sunday. Thanks to Pat and the crew at Hobby Stop West for another awesome season of on road racing this past fall-winter.

Hope to see everyone again over the summer or in the fall (October).

First Week of Onroad Racing is planned for Oct 16th. Pretty sure there will be VTA, USGT, 17.5, 1/12th scale and F1. I also expect a few people will have the new WGT cars with rubber tires. Fun stuff.

Also, I understand Pat will have the track open for practice on Oct 9th for tuning, but maybe not a formal race day - maybe if enough show up we can convince him to hold races.

See everyone soon :)

Carpet Track Work Party scheduled for Saturday October 1st, 2016

Hey guys Hobby Stop West is having a work party to get out some wrinkles that have shown up on the track. It will be on Saturday October 1st at 10am till we are done. If anyone can show up to help it will make the work go quicker. Pat is providing lunch for those who show up and work. Pass it on and bring a buddy so the track will be in top shape for the upcoming Season which starts in about 3 weeks.

Thanks,

Pat & the Hobby Shop crew!

On-road Racing Begins October 16th !

On-road Racing Begins next Sunday, October 16th.

The carpet was freshly laid down and very smooth. A fast layout was also up this past weekend - sub 8sec laps in 1/12th scale.

Expecting VTA, USGT, F1, 1/12th scale and possibly rubber tire WGT and 17.5 sedan to race each Sunday. I understand oval will also run again every other Saturday starting with Oct 15th.

Hope to see everyone there.

FYI - Rumor has it that Hobby Stop West will have the CRC black carpet soon - could be installed at the track in the coming weeks :wink2:
