Every Sunday so far. Racing around 1:00 until 4:00-5:00.

I put some pictures up on Facebook about RC racing out here and have ended up talking to a few guys that seem interested. There are two guys that bought cars earlier and are going to try to come by to watch some Saturday. I think that if more people knew about this then we could get more racers out here and back to two mains again. So many people are on the fence about it...I know of 4 guys that want to do it but dont have the money right now...so hopefully they will come out soon.

James, you and Aaron go to a lot of tracks...what do they do to advertise? I know yall had a beginner class at one time. If we could get a "beginner package" together...the bare minimum to get out there as cheap as possible in smaller cars or whatever then maybe the "on the fence" guys will take the plunge.

Anybody got a Pro Truck please bring it. Even if you arent fast, We need people to make the class. If its a little outside of the rules we might can even make an exception depending on your experience.

Marty bring the tank and I'll give you a rematch... LOL

We all love you too Dick!! I agree with James, you still got it. Gotta get you back out there racing. What ever it takes or anything we can do to make it possible, we will do anything in our power to make it happen.

Site is updated guys. The group pic with Dick is on the Race News page. I have also zipped them up in a zip file and uploaded them so if anyone wants them here is the link to download them...

Dick, I can come load up your rc stuff for you when ever you want to come out again. I will load, set your pit up and unload your stuff back @ your house. You know once @ the track you will have all the help you need from many of us. It will not be asking me to much, I live 8 miles from you.
