The weather for this weekend looks too cold to race so we will not be racing. If warm weather returns any time soon, we'll try to hold a makeup race which will be announced here and on Facebook.

There is still off-road racing at the Warehouse Raceway in Helena, AL and at Thunder R/C in Nashville, TN so make sure to support the indoor tracks that let us race all year.
