    Well the oval season has started here on the West Coast and we have run 3 races so far, although I haven't run oval for a couple of years, I have been having a great time.

    I saw oval racing once and it was ridiculous fast.... too fast for me...Like carpet racing :)

    Is oval racing very popular?

    Well going to have some fun at West Coast RC this Saturday, they have removed the curbs from the on-road track and now we should be able to run oval there as well as having a million possible layouts for the road track. Taking my 10R5 oval car to test for tires and setup...can't wait till the weekend.

    Yea, the cool thing is will only have to move a couple of the boards to get the oval going...when we are practicing then we put back the boards and the road track is up again.

    sorry for not answering sooner...but Ran at the Kimbrough 400 race held at LOU's in Bakersfield a cement Tri-oval with 17 to 20 degrees of banking. Ran 21.5 2S Stock car and 17.5 1S nastruck. Car was good, not as fast as I would like but got 5 in the A and my truck got destroyed in turn one. So a friend had won the B main bumped to the A and he can't stand for long so I got to drive his truck in the 100 lap A-main. Started 10 and finished 3rd all in all a good weekend of racing. This weekend we are running oval carpet and NASCAR Road coarse at the same place. Nothing better then seeing a stock car make left and right turns...looks like Watkins glen so fun.
