Tiny but a blast to run. If you don't hit your mark every lap you will be passed.

220 feet. Measured around the center of the track. I call it Little Bristol. We had some of the Thomasville guys come race with us for the first time. We even had 2 JP's and they are begging to come back again. We had 8 racers total but we don't like more than 4 on the track at one time so we had heats and a b main to set the field. We had a separate race for the jp class. This track is clay and sticks really good. At the end we had rubber in the turns.

THAT IS SMALL BUT IF YOU CAN RACE ON A 200' TRACK THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO RUN ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY.

That size track will make a better racer out of you than a mega track with 250 straights. You have to hold your line, wait for your chance, etc. no room for error!!!

You never win a race by focusing on one aspect of the race!  Motor isn't everything, but you better have a good one!  Chassis too!  But remember, a driver can take a slow machine and make it faster!  I may not have/be the best of any of these but I'm trying!

Sorry guys. I haven't been on here the last few days. Trying to get ready for Tville race next weekend. The track is in Norman Park. South Georgia. Royalblue is right. We raced on this track and when we went to Tville we didn't have a problem driving that track. On our short track you have to keep your concentration all the time. One slip and you will lose. In the video you can see Russell running good til he goes a little high and Park passes him. As long as Park held his line it was over for Russell. I won running a CP. Ryan was second running  an SP. Park running an SP and Russell was running an FX. Horsepower helps but only if you have good brakes and can run the very bottom to pass. Wish you guys could come race this track cause you would enjoy it. We're not sanctioned but I can't make the track suitable for the rules. Have a nice weekend all.
