There is a new dirt oval coming soon. Track has been started on this past Saturday. The Location is at Hoosier Hobbies in Linton Indiana. The size is about 110'x60' and the lanes are 10'-12' wide. The surface is clay and yes it is an INDOOR facility. Nice hobby shop too.

Did they take the offroad facility out or did they put it were the carpet was??

It is where the off road was. There will be an off road inthe middle of it. It is one huge dirt oval.

I stopped in to see the progress they were making on the track Saturday evening. It looked ral good and it is going to be one big fast dirt oval. The clay is real sticky and will be smooth. I am not sure if they have set the night they will be running yet but I have heard they might rotate the nitro night and the electric night. I think the classes will be whatever shows up. I do kow we are planning on runnign the 1/10th sliders.:thumbsup: I hope a late model electric class shows up too but I bet when the dirt oval guys see this track they will all want to run on it.

Glad to see this being done. This is a great facility and this track will be HUGE. I am glad to see that the off road section is more "user friendly". I enjoyed watching people race on the old off road but that triple was enough for me to say no thank you.

Your gonna have to come over and sling some dirt with us:)
I plan on it Part Timer. I've got a Slash that's just collecting dust..........
Awesome!:thumbsup: Its gonna be like the old days.
He keeps telling me about those darn slot cars he is addicted to.:confused:
I just stopped by and looked at the track. It is coming in good. The watering and packing is making it take shape. I wish I could come help Saturday Throttle but I have to go to Rose HUlman for a football team parents club meeting. I hope to be able to put slider on it one night next week;). Let me know if I can help in any way. I put a post on dirtoval.com as well. Nitro guys need to be getting ready too.

I'm sure you guys will get it smoothed out. I wish I could get out there to help. If I get in town early enough Saturday night I will stop by.
Any update on the track today? I got back in town at 9 tonite but the gates were locked. Will it be available to tturn some practice laps on this week?:confused:
Let me know when you are going to do it and hopefully I can get free to come help.
What classes for dirt oval?

I know we have talked about the slider class but what other classes do most dirt ovals in Indiana run? I know the Losi mini late model is popular at a lot of tracks. I hope to see 1/10th late models and maybe edm's. what motor/battery combos are you guys running? It would be good to match up with other tracks so we could maybe put together a series later on.

When do you guys plan on starting racing ?
What nights ?
And what part timer asked

Last week when I stopped by I think they were having trouble getting it to flatten out. They were going to work on it again to try to improve it. Last I heard they were talking of Sunday afternoons and possibly moving to a different day later on.
Oval racing start the 13th!!!!!!:thumbsup: Be sure to check out their website at www.hoosierhobbiesraceway.com

I am sure they will have some class info up soon. Let us know what classes you guys want to run.


I have not got a chance to stop by and check it out. Tony thought it would be ready later this week. I guess this weekend the oval is running nitro and electric off road. I will try to get inthere and check it out between softball practices:thumbsup:
