Just finished some upgrades to the track. Visit the website at www.thumbrc.com or find me on Facebook. I'm guessing lap times are around 40 to 45 seconds. It's a very rough and bumpy track. Probably the toughest to get around in the state. 4" tile all around. A 4x16 drivers stand. The track has numerous straight-aways, off camber corner, over/under bridge, big triple, rhythm section, whoop section, step up, etc. Best of all, it's free. If you have an I-Laps transponder, I'll get the lap timing system out as well.

I've got a 1/10 scale 4wd buggy. If I hit the big jumps perfect, I can clear them ha ha. I still need to find some good clay for the jumps as these are more of a loamy dirt that doesn't pack nearly as well. But, you've got to start somewhere I suppose. Give me a shout when you want to check it out Ryan.

Personally I hate clay tracks and would rather race on loam.

I changed the track up a bit last night. The rhythm section in the middle after the whoops is now a single onto a tabletop followed by a small double. The singles were way too close together. The big step up in the corner is now a big mound instead. Less crashes and still fun to hit.

I've got the panther chameleon 2 tires on my buggy right now. They've got pretty good grip. I think they may be a bit too aggressive for the track.

July 26th will be our next series race. Awards to the top three in each class. You must race 3 of 4 races to be eligible for a year in award in addition to our normal race awards. Our remaining three races do not interfere with MSCS or FTMS schedules. We will be raffling off a Caster Racing 1/18 scale vehicle on the 26th along with numerous other prizes and gift certificates. Everyone will take a prize of some sort home. $15 for your first class or $20 for unlimited classes. Kids in the novice class race for free (transponder needed). Come join a great bunch of guys and have some fun. The track can take a lot of rain. We will be racing rain or shine. Also, we have a year long raffle going for a Caster Buggy. Every racer gets one entry per event for the drawing after our last race. The track gets tore up pretty good. Bring your pin tires or mx style tires for loamy dirt.

The mini class will be racing as well. Bring out your 1/12-1/18 scale vehicles.

Will be featuring a 3 lap exhibition race at the end of the day. No charge for drivers. 15 car max. Award for the winner. Race details will be provided at the drivers meeting for this one.
