Dirt Oval Inaugural Series Winners!

Our first Dirt Oval points series is over, and the first champions have been crowned! The track has evolved and improved throughout the series, as we've really worked to dial it in for our club racers. In return, you guys have turned out in ever-increasing numbers, to support this new program at Hot Rod Hobbies. We thank you all for it, and we're really looking forward to another successful series, taking us through the rest of the year!

Congratulations to our inaugural Dirt Oval champions!

Dry track on the dirt oval this Friday, come support the new program!

With warm temperatures forecasted all week in Santa Clarita, and a high temperature expected to reach the high 80s, this Friday will be our first attempt at running the oval dry. We will of course have a hose at the ready, in case water is needed, along with brooms to sweep up any dust. This will be our first time letting the track go dry, but we need to see how this dirt reacts to dry conditions as the warmer months grow closer. Hot laps will begin at 5:00pm sharp, with racing starting at 7:00pm. We hope to see you all out there this Friday and as always, spectating is free! So come see what all the excitement is about, with the new dirt oval program here at Hot Rod Hobbies!
