Boasting a Drivers Stand of 8'x32', bump'n elbows is a thing of the past!
OUTDOOR Track: Edinburgh, IN/Camp Atterbury/Johnson County Park
Measuring in at 185 ft by 120 ft, this 1:8 scale monster is one of the largest (if not the largest) tracks in the Midwest. Boasting an 18 ft tall drivers stand, centered between BOTH tracks, racing at this monster is not for the squeamish!! Nitro Buggys and Truggys have been tearing the track up since 2004. Our largest race to date was just before the track was relocated (from a mile up the road), during a Pro Series race with 350 entries. In 2011, the 1:10 scale mini-monster was added for Short Course and Mod Buggy racing. Measuring in at 100 ft by 100 ft, this track has continued to please the electric fans on a smaller scale. For those of you who enjoy racing under the lights, this is the place to be! Located within a park with camping sites, RV hook-up, shower houses, electrical access, plenty of space for pitting, and NO curfew!! This is always a fun weekend get-a-way. Every year we host The Great Pumpkin Race, where we give back to the racing community by providing a hog roast and pitch-in lunch. Complete with T-shirts, prizes, racing and food.....It doesn't get any better than that, and always guaranteed to be a good time with great racing.
