Summit Raceway in Fort Wayne, IN is now open. This new carpet track has an 80' x 36' layout for road course racing, that also transforms into an oval track.
The next road course race will be a New Year's day road race with gift certificate payouts for the top finishers. Doors open at 10:00 AM, with racing at 1:00.
Summit Raceway is located in the Gateway Plaza Shopping Center, on Goshen Rd. Take I-69 to exit 109, straight thru 3 lights, turn right at the 4th.
For more info, check the web at Summit Raceway or at the SARC club website at SARC Club Website

Club road racing every Tuesday night, and road course racing every other Sunday afternoon. Check the race calendars on either website for dates and times. Hope to see you there!

I have a question about the pit tables. If a lot of people buy tables then there is really not going to be a lot of pit space as each table is big enough for 2 people to pit at. Should people still bring there own table just to make sure they have will get a spot??

I'm not sure I understand your question... if a lot of people buy tables, then there will be more tables... more pit space. Maybe the method is confusing. The tables they are selling, have already been purchased and are on-site. When money comes in for those tables, they take it and purchase more tables for the track.
You can always bring your own table just to be sure, but definately bring your own chair for now.

Sunday, February 9th. There are some flyers at the local hobby shops in Ft. Wayne. I'll see if I can get one scanned and get it up on the website. Info on the race is up on the website now. Just click on the 'WWW' icon at the bottom of my post.

There is an option in the Autoscore program on the computer that allows you to run a race without entering any names. If all the equipment is on, you could start that up and run your practice with a transponder. You should then be able to view or print out the lap times. If we are both at the track at the same time some day, I can show you how, or check with Dale or Phil.

Anybody object to running gas sedans as an oval class? All we need is 3 racers...
Are you joking? If not you need to go to the doctor you must have fallen on the ice and bumped your head. Gas on carpet :lol: Our track is slippery enough without oil on it :wave: I must admit it does sound fun:thumbsup:

I knew 'oil make track slippery' would be the first response. A well tuned engine doen't puke oil and fuel all over the place. Most of it ends up stuck to the body and I don't know that it wouldn't help our carpet. You certainly couldn't let a puking HPI single needle carb on the track. I could give it a try this Saturday at oval practice. A couple laps wouldn't do anything to our carpet.

I don't know. I guess it kind of rubs me the wrong way that CRL won't come down here for a race. I decided to stay here and give my money to the home track. I can race sunday and tuesday for 1 CRL race.

Ben, it's not so much you it's the other people that arn't very good with gas. Here in Fort Wayne that would be most people (including ME) But if someone wants to let me try their gas car I will be more than happy to try it HINT HINT:devil:

Ya, that was a bummer. Hopefully we can get one next winter. Maybe by then we will be able to support personal transponders.
