Improving upon the inaugural year, the word is now out and the JConcepts Spring Dirt Oval Nationals is the race to be at for competitive side-by-side racing and all out fun. Join us at HobbyPlex and be a part one of the best dirt oval race experience in RC.
JConcepts Events is proud to present the Spring Dirt Oval Nationals. Held at the iconic HobbyTown facility in Omaha, Nebraska, the centrally located venue invites Dirt Oval racers of all skill level to race at the Plex. The indoor facility, managed by Alex Sturgeon, has a wealth of RC knowledge to go along with passion and always provides an experience like no other.
Racers will tune to the clay based surface and utilize a controlled tire to simplify the event experience. HobbyTown’s track build will focus around their current Dirt Oval track, however, updates and size changes will accommodate faster speeds, better driver visibility, and include an overall racers feel to the dedicated event.
