Just left the track and pumped out @30 gallons..track is drying out. Plenty of sun on it. Looking good for Saturday. Will have to do the usual track prep and resurface. Not bad though.

I guess from reading your racing info there is no more oval track as u don't post any info about it? Par for the course. Glad to see the new leadership has taken control and is moving forward in a positive manner to increase racing interest at the Mobile track.

Rick, the oval is still in place. As with any track, it could use some routine maintainence.

Note - The current track flyer still indicates the active classes run at this facility. If there's a new class you'd like to see started, it only takes three entries to get the ball rolling.

.
The info on the homepage has been up for a month with no comments. Its just a basic list of popular classes. Having 2 people in a class isn't the eptiome of a popular class. That said its really not hard to fix a minor oversight and add to that list. It wouldve just taken a PM and any of the mods would have gladly changed it I'm sure, instead of posting some whiney junk.

Like Gordon posted, the current flyer (which is posted in Hobbytowns window, on Facebook and elsewhere) has the popular oval classes listed. No one is purposely excluding oval, that would be dumb to not promote a class that we have the facilities for...

Whiny junk? I guess noting a obvious error in information was a mistake on my part seeing how I don't live near Hobbytown, and don't use facebook. Last time I checked we had 4 to 6 entries for oval. As far as the oval goes if Keith and my self had not worked and preped the track there was no oval to race on. Last I heard u were expanding the 1/8 scale off road to include the oval or is that just a rumor? GFTL :)

Rick, please understand we can't be expected to react to rumors reportedly made at a public accessible track. We can however state the facts - of which I believe Todd and others have made attempts to do here. It is a fair statement, that the comments posted on this web site and other social media forums are in the open and not simply anonymous rumors being tossed around.

Sitting back and stating the "sky is falling" doesn't get us any closer to the anticipated goals.

We all share the responsibility in maintaining and promoting our track facility. There has been open discussion during these scheduled Maintenance Days to have a professional service provide more regular grass/weed trimming maintenance which would help reduce the amount of required volunteer effort in keeping the track presentable in a more consistent manner.

While it is easy to sit back only to toss out speculations and stir the pot, I recommend we all take a more active role by getting involved with helping each other on scheduled work days as well future planning and the promoting of race events.

Attached are a few photos from the most recent scheduled work day (Saturday, 05/24/2014). Considerable time was devoted to the clean up around the entire facility including the oval driver's stand and oval itself. Scheduled Work Days are open to anyone interested in improving the facility.

It looks like I may be traveling on business at the end of the week which may fall into Saturday.

If not, I plan to be at the track.
