N2Deep Raceways Web site

N2Deep Raceways is presenting the 2012 Firecracker Classic! Oval racing returns to the northeast Ohio facility on July 7, 2012, with open practice Friday night, July 6 from 7:00pm until ?. Plenty of hotel options in the vicinity (less than 10 minutes; see Web site for locations/addresses).

Track size is approximately 90'x30'; track surface is closed-loop carpet. We're trying to decide on what use for the "ice" and how big (wide) it should be.

Amenities include: pit tables with electric; on-site hobby shop presented by Austintown Hobbies; AMB lap scoring (AlyCat) (house transponders available).

Nine classes of short track racing action: Rookies (Novice), All-American Stock Cars (VTA on the oval), Limited Late Models (TOUR 17.5 Open Stock Car), Sportsman Trucks (TOUR 17.5), Super Late Models (TOUR 13.5 Open), Dirt Modifieds (Hooter's Tour 17.5 rules), Mini Sprints (Losi Sliders), Wingless Sprints, and Dirt Late Models (Short-Course Late Models)! Doors will open at 2:00pm on Saturday, with racing starting at approximately 4:00pm. See the Web site for rules details.

Event sponsors are currently being worked on.

Entry fee<s>: $15.00 first class; $8.00 additional class<es>. *NOTE*: This price is for special event<s>. Regular weekly race entry fee is $12.00, $8.00, and $5.00 additional (3 or more) classes.

We're also working on getting the hobby shop stocked up for this event and all future events. If you need something at the shop, let us know on the Message Boards at the Web site :) There's a forum specifically FOR off-road and oval hobby shop requests. Austintown Hobbies (330-793-9233) will be presenting the on-site hobby shop.

For the TOUR Limited Late Models (17.5 Open) and Super Late Models (13.5 Open): We're going to allow the McAllister ASA Camaro (p/n #273) or Mustang (p/n #272), or Milwaukee Late Model (p/n #228). We're trying to decide on an incentive for running these bodies (weight break? Or...?).

The All-American Stock Cars will debut at this event as well. This is basically a "Vintage Trans-Am on Oval" class. However, we're allowing a few more tire, wheel, and body choices (see Web site for more details).

Our drivers' stand is wheelchair-accessible, and we use an AMB scoring system. There are house transponders available.

After this event, the plan is to run oval racing every other Saturday.

Track address:

N2Deep Raceways
2864 Newton Falls Road
Newton Falls, OH 44444


Hope to see y'all there!

I'll talk to CJ and see what we can work out. Unfortunately, CJ and I both work during the week, and I also work on Saturday mornings. This event will be the first oval race in a while at N2Deep; we're trying to get something going permanently :)

Shoot me an e-mail at [email protected] and let me know what kind of practice day<s> will work for you guys.

Once we get started back up again, we'll take a look and see what classes "take off".

Another class I was thinking of, is a gearbox/buggy-based "Street Stock" class. Just take your off-road buggy, throw a (vintage) stock car body on it, and go oval racing :)

Just some basic rules for the class, that's all. Nothing too complicated. Just trying to build a driver base first, then go from there. :thumbsup:

Pan cars :)

Seriously, though...we're trying to get a good carpet/oval racing program going. I'd like to have a good mix of pan-car and "dirt oval" type classes (maybe run DODC rules?). For the event we have coming up in July, we have three pan-car classes lined up; a Touring-car class; and four "dirt oval" classes: Sprint cars; Mini Sliders; Eastern Dirt Modifieds; and short-course Late Models. We also plan on having a "Novice/Rookie" class: pretty much run whatcha brung for racers that have little to no race experience.

If you have guys up that way that have 1/10th scale electric "dirt oval" cars (Late Models, Sprint cars, EDM), tell 'em to bring 'em to N2Deep on July 7th for the Firecracker; three of anything will make a class ;)

I think you might consider using HCOT rules for EDM, they are fashioned for cars that run on carpet, and the rules work very well, with out making racers buy a specific battery and motor, you will probably have a better turnout if racers can use motors and batteries that they have in thier box already.

Yep, that's the plan :) In fact, I think on our Web site, the EDM rules were copied right from the Hooter Chassis Outlaw Tour (http://www.hooteroutlawtour.com/hcot_class.htm).
