If you haven't heard already Star Collectibles in Muscatine is opening a new carpet track. It will be 75'x50'. They will be racing both on road and off road. Construction has begun and the track is expected to open around June.

The track will be using the new black CRC carpet, the good stuff. Track layout will be using seamless pvc for lane dividers so there will be less chance of getting hung up and less chance of braking parts. New LED lighting, ground floor pitting, AMB timing system.

First race is scheduled for May14th. On road classes mainly this race as the jumps will still need to be built. Off road cars are welcome to run on the road course this race too. Classes and rules will be going up on the Island Raceway page on Facebook.
