Default Large Scale Racing in Richmond VA

Hello all, I have been searching for a place to race my Baja 5B clone close to, or in Richmond VA and have not been able to find any tracks. If there is enough interest, I have the equipment and the space to build a fairly complex offroad track for the big buggies and trucks in the Hanover air park. I'm also interested in 1/5th scale onroad and know of a private paved go-cart track in Ashland that would be perfect for 1/5th scale onroad competition. Just testing the waters here..... any other large scale owners in the Richmond area interested in a track designed for the 1/5 scalers?

Bat, It seems for a long time, there was never enough people to get together and make something happen as far as large scale racing, but since then there is a group of guys located here that has started to organize such events nationally.
I look forward to racing guys out of LA like CC Racings crew, or the guys out of Cali, Miami or where ever, I think this is a good thing for the hobby, I also see there serious by taking on Doug from ESP to help organize these events.
So the bottom line is, if you don't mind traveling a bit, or check with your loacl 5th scale clubs to see if they are hosting any of the events,, these types of races are going to be huge!'

Anyway, check it out, I don't see the actual season calander up yet, but it will be annouced soon I'm told.

Just wanted to give you a heads up!
Good luck
