The "Third Saturday Flat Track Racing" (there really should be a better name....) is only a week away. Hope you're planning on joining us!

We have a lot of interest in flat track racing this month, including 1/24 Euro sports. We have added the 1/32 Scratchbuilts (Falcon 2 power) and 1/24 Eurosports. Looks to be a full, fun day.

We'll run the following order on September 17:

First tech at 9:15 AM / First race at 9:30 AM.

JK Falcon 1/32
- half-hour break -
Scratchbuilt 1/32 (anglewinder and inline)
- half-hour break -
1/24 Falcon LMP/GT
- one hour break for set-up -
GT12
- one hour break for set-up -
1/24 Eurosports

A longer day, but should be some great racing. See you there!

Buena Park Raceway
6161 Lincoln Ave.
Buena Park, CA 90620
(714) 827-9979

Any 4" flexi steel chassis. No aluminum pans. 3/32" axle. Tire size depends on how you jig the axle. Most likely .700 -.720.

The results may have been too embarrassing to print.
