Thats great! I wish I could do that too. Too bad your so far away...lol

How big is it? Post a couple of pictures!!

Im sure liability could come into play if someone ever got hurt. Im not sure about that end of stuff though, just be careful and have a good time with it.

probably will only have probs if ya charge addmission or even a donation cup check w/ya insurance agent he may be able to get ya cheap policy

my good friend is a mud bogger and he has his own pit and course his agent got him a weekend daily policy for liability and he can charge addmissions no alcohol allowed
they sign a waiver simalar to pit passes liabilty is if ya get hurt in a ride or if a bystander is injured by you the daily insurance will pay for injuries 10 or 12 he pays and charges 20 to use his course he gets around 20 to 40 trucks a day

I called my insurance agent. he did'nt know who whould insure it. have to call a track promotor. also going to talk to a lawyer.
after running on it for a full day, learned a LOT. i now have a lot more respect for promoters. thats a lot of work! sure fun tho.
going to make some changes before snow flies so should be ready for spring. just could'nt get over how fast a flat track could be. i'm running a 5.14 gear and turned 6100 in a hobbystock. now i gotta find a good way to haul water(lol)

We're going to plow a track this winter in our field and run some old beater front wheeler cars. we have four cars so far, it should help the winter go faster and get us motivated to build our new cars for next summer.
