Additional information:
This race has been run for the last 7 years as part of the Wild West Winter Carnival in Riverton, Wyoming. Members of Salt Lake Mini-Z have attended the last 6 years and it’s tons of fun and lots of great people. The race is held inside the casino (in the Ball Room) Kids are welcome to attend and race but are not permitted in the gaming area. There is a stage that is used for the drivers stand and a nice big track is setup. There are lots of great people to talk with and get help from. They have a raffle drawing that you are entered into when you register for the classes, one per class.

There is an onsite Hotel with discounted rates for racers. Nothing like racing all day and having your room 5 minutes away when you're done.

This is a great race to attend and we have great support from our Salt Lake Mini-Z Club Members.

I updated the track in the first post to the layout that was chosen for this year. Should be a good track with a nice flow.

I also would like to thank Shop.TinyRC.com for supporting this race and providing some gift certificates for the raffle drawings. It's very much appreciated. I'll get some photos of the winners of the GC and get them posted here on MZR.

Race is coming up this weekend, It's going to be a great time (as it always has been). If you close and can make it we would love to have you come out and race with us. :D It's the closest big race for us it's only about 6 hours away from Salt Lake :) Riverton, Wyoming is about 6+ hours from anywhere :p

I was actually looking at airfare rates a month ago to get me and the wife out for a "Valentines" day trip... no way to swing the numbers though.

Awesome job guys! Looks like an amazing time was had by all and that layout is one of the coolest I've seen in a while! Good to know there are still big events going on out there!

Congrats on the wins Brian!

Congrats on the wins Brian!

from what I was told it's much cheaper to fly in to Casper and then drive over. it's about a 6 hour drive from where I live to get there. It's really a remote location but the race is well worth it. We had 10 from our club go and as always we all had fun. some had better luck in the casino than the race, but they all had a great time.

thanks for the props on the finish. :cool:

thanks Larry and ED, Maybe one day I'll get to race with you guys.

Got a pic of my cars and the trophies. I also won a Kyosho Pit mat in the Raffle so I used that as well. :) I used the same body on my 50T car and 70T Car. worked out great for both.
