Does anyone know if there is any "organized" Retro racing in Arkansas?

Grable's track in Clinton looks like it would be a great retro venue.

Shooter:

How about Missouri? We are in the planning stage of starting Retro at Raytown soon. That's a King with moderate banking.

Also there's a new track in Batesville AR that would be a good candidate too. It's an Engelman.

if there's no current retro racing at your nearest track, it's up to you to get it started! Show up with a couple of retro cars and let some of the locals try 'em out. Maybe one of 'em likes scratchbuilding and will give it a shot. Maybe another just goes out on the interwebs and buys a nice RTR. But YOU have to get them interested by showing up with one and letting them drive it. Good luck getting retro going in Arkansas!

There's also H&C Hobbies in Jonesboro as a candidate.
