Micro Pulling Competition

Micro Pulling Competition

We are very excited to announce that we will begin some micro pulling competitions Friday nights starting May 24th.  We will have the track open for practice throughout the week (if you want to come try your crawler on our sled).  We are starting out indoors and will be pulling on various surfaces, carpet, turf, CRC track carpet, etc.  We also hope to have a dirt area available soon too. 

This is brand new for us and we are hoping to have a fun time using the same vehicles we already have for crawling.  At the bottom of this post you will find all the rules and classes listed.  Like always we are open to adding classes, just bring 4 trucks and we can make a class for you. 

One fun part about this, is our entry fee is only $5 per vehicle.  Cash payout classes will be an additional $5 (cash only) but 100% of this will be paid out to the racers.  You can enter multiple trucks in the same class, enter the same truck more than once, and run the same truck in multiple classes if it fits the rules.  Should be a fun time! 

Please help us spread the word and let people know there is a new type of competition going on at 997 RC Raceway!! 

Cost to compete:
$5 Per Entry + $5 cash toward payout classes.
Novice classes $5 (No payout)

1:10 Scale pulling is in the works too. Likely will start out on carpet and eventually have the dirt pulling track done. We have the 1:10 sled at our track if you want to come test it out on a practice day.
