After a few years in the making, we have a new surface!  Thanks a million to Manatee County and everyone that has been behind this.  This could be the ultimate race location and to think we have a 'home' for many, many years is priceless.  Restrooms, covered pitting, shade, YMCA pool, playground, more - awesome!!

  Manatee County Votes YES for an R/C Track! 
11-16:  Manatee County has voted for a permanent R/C car track at Marble Park.  Please stay tuned for exciting race news and updates.  We are currently working on racing there on a temporary track that we can leave permanently down until the new one is built and completed.  Stop by Marble Park - the track will be at the nearest tennis court when you pull in.  A huge thanks to everyone at Manatee County and the park director Cindy Turner for their support of R/C car racing.
