Since my first visit to Sidewinder a few years ago, I have written extensively about the facility, its unique economic model and the friendly folks that own and race at the facility. Below are images of the two wood tracks. To read the entire article and view additional images, see the link

I like going there on Saturdays where it's $10 to race all day on both tracks. If it was closer I would go there every day.

It's a really fine raceway, unique for a commercial raceway in the US since it caters to 1/32nd scale. I enjoyed racing one of their weekly Wednesday races recently, and found a good group of competitive, friendly racers. I'll make it back up there, I'm sure.
