18SS ,perhaps if you came to the track and tried running on it...you might change your tune .Infact if you come out I will personally cover your race fee's .

really, if your on the track by your self, its not that hard, but the hard part is when you get 4 other guys on it, all fighting for the same line, and all basically going the same speed, it really makes you work the traffic, and you have to be able to stay clean like was said, or you loose a lot of time, perfect example of that was the truck A main, i was almost a lap up on Martin at one point, but then had a bunch of trouble with lap traffic, and he ended up catching back up and passing me,

Just wanted to send a bigh thanks out to the guys whoi got me squared away with the motor bidness - Abiye, the lathe-man, Martin for providing it and Joe for handing over a freshly turned motor, which I shall buy!
Anyone who thinks this track is too small or rinky-dink to be competitive had better come out and hand someone's to them before they can make such a comment. You have to run mistake free, or you're down anywhere from one to 5 laps. Running mistake free on a crowded track consistantly enough to win is TOUGH!.

believe me the track is not that easy... to be fast lap after lap is very hard... you've got to have 100% concentration and be aware of whats happening ahead and behind you to stay clear of any trouble and pick your way through... you have to be very careful in traffic as well...

I don't want to continue to beat up the topic that 18SS has brought up but he is entitled to his opinion even if he has not run the track. I can't find his post but if he says it is a simple and easy track then that is his opinion. I don't want to bash what he has said because everyone else has done a great job of doing it. The track is an indoor track and when Matt had this great idea of making an indoor offroad track he gave everyone the opportunity to do something that would be almost impossible to do. It gave everyone, including myself the opportunity to drive about 1 hour to race offroad indoors. From the looks of the post it looks like there are alot of other people who recognize this as well. Let 18SS have his opinion and say whatever he wants because at the end of the racing I had a great time and there was a great and positive group of guys racing. I had fun and that is what it's all about.
Thanks again to everyone who made it out to the race and I hope everyone will be out again. And for the people who have not had the chance to race, I would suggest you try it before you say you don't like it.

Thanks to everyone who made it happen, Matt, Brent, Chewy, MGF and Sherry (Cannot forget that Roast beef, and the other dinners/ lunches she delivers)
I had a blast!!!!, Can't wait for next time!!

Personnally I like the small track because it is tight and technical. I believe this can only increase anybodies driving ability. just think... next summer when the outdoor tracks open how much better of a driver we all might be.

good time

Great time on saturday, tight racing the entire 2wd A-main field covered by five seconds. Chuck Balzer TQ's first time at the track (impressive)!!! These short bull rings are all about working the traffic. Could it possibly be anymore fun!! I think not. We all know we are going to get hung up in traffic at some point in the race, but you have to take it in stride. Very low tension level. Great group of guys to race with.
