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.

Greetings,
In Arkansas there are 3 Raceways..
H&C in Jonesboro has a 90 Foot Oval and a Hillclimb.

Grables has a Hillblimb and a little racing on Friday Night, they run a stock Car, Flexi Chassis, Hawk 6 Body.

Batesville Raceway amd Hobby has a really nice Gerding King, it was the track the 2016 Nats were on.
They race on Sundays, about every combination of FCRs and Flexi Cars.

Sadly no retro racing at any of those tracks, however if you brought 2-3 guys we do have 3-4 guys and could race if u wanted. We would have to plan it in advance but we can make it happen.
