Post Outdoor track coming soon!
We just thought we would let people know who haven't been around here in a while that we are opening an outdoor track directly behind our Hobby Shop in Barling, AR. Here are a few of the details:

Outdoor dirt (It looks really good, no rocks no sand)
Roughly 130x80 with lighting.
It will be 1/10th and 1/8th friendly.
First layout will be open wide fast flowing lanes to let the new people adapt easier to bigger track.
There will be electric and water but no covered spots. There is a lot of shaded areas to pit under luckily.
We will race at 5:00 on Saturdays. We will try to remain 3 heats and a main unless it runs consistently late then we will switch to 2 heats but they will be longer times.
We will try to have one late night practice session during the week which will be a track maintenance then practice type of deal.
$15 for the first class and $10, $5, $5. Buy a transponder folks. We will not wait nor hand count anyone, sorry.

Classes which could change but as of now will be: ELECTRIC ONLY FOR RACING.

Race director will decide which class you run in each week.

Novice (Which will include SC, Buggy, Stadium truck)
Mod SC
Sportsman Buggy
Modified buggy
Stadium truck, if enough Sportsman and Pro
4wd Buggy
4wd SC
1/8th scale, it looks that already we can do a Sportsman and Pro.

The date for starting is not known yet due to the 20 initial loads of dirt out on the flooded grass is not dry enough to work yet.

We do have an idea of paying back cash to one class per night. It can't be the same one on back to back weeks and it will not be known which class pays back until the Mains are over. That should keep things fun and exciting.

Stay tuned for more and complete updated info.
