We have updates for you!

In case you missed it, Dad's Races rescheduled the previously rained out EMERGE at Callahan Off Road RC Raceway for September 24th! Just over two weeks out and you won't want to miss it!

Here's what you can expect:

Newberry racers love Callahan. We bumped our club event up a week so that both events can happen. John Bernard is awesome and we can't wait to get some laps in at Callahan on 9/24!

A heat of Gas Truck! YES! But it doesn't stop there. Ignite Design RC will be on site bringing gas truck entries, conversion kits, and trackside support. Dave Duncan graciously welcomed this joint effort between Newberry, Jimmy, and the EMERGE series. After watching these trucks run, you're going to want to take one home. Ignite will have you covered. Thank you, Jimmy Woodley!

Spread the word! If you're in North Florida or South Georgia and you own a 1:10 Gas Truck, THIS IS YOUR SIGN!

Finally, Speed Demon Hobbies will be on site with parts, tires, and more. Ken is so appreciated for making the long drive up from South Florida! Please plan to support him!

Well this is not the post we wanted to share but the weather is winning and has won….. John Bernard and his awesome Callahan raceways crew have been battling wet weather for the last 2 weeks and would need 2 full days of sunny and dry to give us a good racing surface. We do not see that in the near future so we will have to reschedule EMERGE race #1 east session @ Callahan raceway. We should have a new date and if all possible still in September in the next few days so stay tuned. So sorry for this but it is out of our hands.

Yup that’s it for practice. If I come out tomorrow and it’s good I’ll let you know but I’m going to go ahead and cancel practice for this weekend.

It’s in rough shape but I will open the track for practice tomorrow and possibly Friday as well as Saturday depending on the weather. Tomorrow it’ll be open from 4-7pm, $10 per driver.

I’ll freshen it up the best I can for tomorrow. -John

I finished too late to get a good picture but wanted to water it one last time before it got too dark. The track looks great and should be pretty fast tomorrow. I will try to get here early enough to get water on it before practice starts, 4pm-7pm, $10 per driver. -John

We have a lot going on this week.

Thursday the track will open for practice from 4-7pm. Please plan on the gates opening at 4pm but I hope to be there around 3:30pm. $10 per driver.

Friday we will rent some lights and have a night race. Gates will open around 3:30pm, practice from 4:30-6:30pm, racing will start at 7pm. $20/$15/$10, $10 for Novice.

Saturday we'll still have lights so might as well use them. We'll have another night race. Gates will open at 12pm, practice from 1:00-4:30pm, racing will start at 5pm. $20/$15/$10, $10 for Novice.

Sunday the track will open again for practice from 10am-3pm. Gates open at 9am. $10 per driver.

Power is still limited. Yes there is power but if you have a generator please bring it.

It's a lot but I'm hoping this will get us closer to running power to the new track location.

The weather looks crazy like usual. I’ll be out there Wednesday evening to see how the track looks for Thursday’s practice. If all goes well, I do plan on putting down some calcium after Thursday’s practice. My goal isn’t grip but to keep the dust down and hold the track together for Friday night’s race.

For the race, I’m planning on two 4-min qualifying rounds then 7 min electric mains and a 12-min nitro main. This may change depending on entries.

Then if the weather lets me, I will be back for practice Sunday. -John

This weather is killing me. -John

Practice tomorrow Friday the 10th from 4pm-7pm, $10 per driver.

This is late notice again but I’m going to open the track for practice tomorrow. I was out there today to get the track ready for Sunday and it looked great. It needed water or rain which it got today. The weather looks good for tomorrow and very iffy for Sunday so why not try to get some laps in. I’ll have the computer going to test the new loop out. I’ll give an update tomorrow about the track’s condition as soon as I hear.

We are canceling tomorrow’s race. We had a plan but Mother Nature had her own. We just had two more showers come through and there’s no way we can give you the race experience you deserve.

I’m glad we were finally able to get some cars on the track. Thanks for the practice suggestion Gene Shrout Jr. I’d also like to thank Lisa and David Hicken for giving us a track to use. It has been a lot of work to get us to this point.

I will keep an eye on the weather. If it looks like we can open it up again Sunday I will, if not, I’ll see you at our first race May 28th. -John.

Here’s a couple laps on the new layout with my EBuggy and my 13.5T 4wd buggy. -John

Any clue as to when off road racing will be back at the Callahan track?
Any word on the status of the off road track ?

Onroad guy looking to get into 2 wheel drive buggy off-road, hows the turnout for this track
Made it through a race day with no wet stuff at Callahan Off Road RC Raceway!! Track was fun and grippy thanks to the white stuff laid down by track guru/race director John Bernard. Thanks for the work. EBuggy class was thick. Consistent ish runs put me fourth on the grid in the A. Rough and tumble start shuffled me all the way to the back of the pack, but kept my cool. Worked my way back to the 2 spot 1 second off the lead at the line. Bent but didn’t break. Silver #MicroContacts were GOOD, best laps of the day, but ran a sliver x #Carbide after and they were better 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤣. #TheMoreYouKnow Great day at the track.

Is there camping the night before there?
Hi Folks, I recently found this track - which classes are normally raced? Do you have some model examples for the classes? I am new to racing (but not rc), down in Jax, would love to come check out the track sometime on a race day. Not exactly familiar with rules yet. Thanks for any info you all can provide!
Race or practice this coming weekend?
Whens the next practice day? Car's are ready!
