Surprised there are not any on this forum that run dirt oval besides me. Do to there not being any large scale tracks in Georgia for all most 2 years I all most sold my 5b SS as bashing gets boring to me fast. I never was big on oval racing but when a dirt oval track open 60 miles from me I figured might as well give it a try. WOW it is a lot more fun then I thought it would be and now I am hooked.

racetruck Do you ever go to LargeScale.com races? Wish I was closer but hope maybe one day. Here in the south 1 to 1 dirt oval has been a big thing. Here are few pictures of the track I run. It is only 360 feet.

This is at Hostile's BajaFest 2009 one of the largest HPI baja events in the world that Rob has every year. This is a BIG oval much bigger then the one I run on.

Rob is the owner of Hostile Racing Products who all so puts on Hostiles Bajafest every year. Great guy. Have not raced with him since 2009 at Diggers Dungeon in 2009. Do to my situation I am not able to travel like I use to but hope one year to make it to Hostiles Bajafest. Here is a not so good picture I took of him at Diggers 2009.

I do not think Rob is on this forum. He is on HPI Baja Forums. Hostile Racing products are sold by most large scale distributors like DDM that sell parts for the HPI Baja. Here is his web site.

Do to my heath and financial situation I can no longer travel very far. I am happy I am able to some of the time travel the 60 miles to race at the only track in Georgia that runs large scale. But I have it better then some.
