Farmer, I'm working on it but gotta get the East coast thing working solid first :)

Sonic yes we'll do one on Sunday. I know some of you guys can't make it a weekend and then there are some of us that just need the extra day (like me lol) :lol:

Brandon, we're starting on the track now. The footprint will be 50x80 and the dirt we got is just top soil from around here so from my experience it will be hard packed with some loose stuff on top. We used to run IFMAR pins back in the days if it was swept up and step pins when it was deep.

how about a vintage oval class? say 2wd conversions popular back in the day.

i'd love to run one of my oldies. got a bbt sprinter and a macallister converted rc10 that can run wedges or edm.

hell, it doesn't even have to be an official class, just get the word out about that sweet oval you guys have.

I am scheduled to be at a Grand National Cross Country race at Unadilla that weekend, but if I don't go I will bring some dominators for dirt oval action. Will probably race on vintage rubber tires or 20yr old foams.
