Flat tracking? - March 27, 2011, 06:07 PM

I want to start flat tracking. Anyone on here have any ideas on where locally (NOT NORTH CAROLINA) to go to ride on an oval or short track? I've got a mini 125 set up for it, and I'd like to have a go at it and see how much I like it before I get neck deep in bigger, faster bikes.

I've got some friends trying to drag me to Harescrambles, but I'm looking to train on a flat track. I'm trying to look around on the internet for local places, but not coming up with much. I would be happy to drive to Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia.

Thanks!

Someone on here did that indoor one last year. Can't remember who. Also might want to give Arnie a shout. He did a school down at Richmond last year.

I'll set mine up and go with you if need another backmarker to race.

Thanks man, that starts to help. I'm actually looking for a place to practice up (a lot) and find out what classes I'll be in before I head to a sanctioned show and get my feelings hurt on my little bike.

Hagerstown is an awesome looking track, but probably a little big and fast for my little 150. I figure when I go to a 250 (in a while) it will fit a little better.

Road trip for the next one? I'm ordering a hot shoe at the end of the week. Still need to find a place to practice around here. Weren't you building a mini track in your back yard at one time???

I was but the winter destroyed things by turning the back yard into a swamp. Austin rutted the crap out of it when he was tooling around on the 50. I'm tempted to borrow the landlord's tractor and flatten it out.

My only concern with doing it there is annoying the farmer's market next door.

Mike Reiser might be able to give you some insight. He works for AMA Pro-Racing Flat Track, doing their airfence and he'll be at Summit this weekend working with the MARRC Crew.

I'm not sure how much he's on here these days, but donniecs does flat track racing now. You might shoot him a PM and see what he can tell you.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Cool, I'll be up there working Saturday, so I will ask him a few questions.

Fail. Ramageddon can level things out and get it down to dirt. Got a buddy that will haul in fill dirt for free, and we can keep the bikes turned off until the market is over. Just think, I can be one of the reasons your daughter takes up FLAT TRACKING at a young age! How awesome will that be?!?
