and why does any track even fuck with these off brand timing systems... Compulink is proven. hopefully Accutime is better than the TSI crap....

and on regular racing days spectators are few and far between. The prev owner used to focus on crap that didn't matter as well. That big stupid tower, moving the grandstands next to the track.


Dick Mossey left the stands out in the weeds and they were always packed. That track isn't ever going to be Norwalk.

Mr. Mossey knew what worked for that track. RIP Mr. Mossey.

Posted on the home page this morning. Not surprised at all.

Hi race fans,

There is no reason to beat around the bush - since the bush is just about under water anyway. Quaker City Motorsports Park will not be opening this weekend. The amount of rain that has fallen this month is approacing 7 inches, and the grounds at QCMP are simply saturated, to the point of some pits having puddles in the grass. We also would like to ask everyone with reserved spots to please hold off on any parking of motorhomes or trailers. Please stay tuned - we will be announcing the schedule for next weekend soon.


I know of many who will not go there until the rough track surface issue is resolved. Not all of them are uber fast cars either. They just don't like having their slicks torn up at twice the rate of anywhere else.

The first Pro Mod race is May 14th and I predict a full field . Regardless of what does or does not happen to the track racers will show up , maybe not all of the regulars but cars will be there .

You could try and surface grind the track, but being as old as the surface is you'd probably generate more problems than you originally had(bringing up entire chunks of cement or blacktop). I understand everyone wants a perfect surface, as do I, but the weather up around here hasn't seen more than a couple days of sun at a time..making it impossible to do anything with the track. All everyone can do is hope the new owner re-surfaces the track at the end of the year! I for one am just happy its under new management! I feel GREAT things coming to Quaker City in the future.

The weather has really put the racing on hold almost everywhere in northern Ohio . Hopefully the Fox family will take the down time to get the facility where they want it to be .

The cement where the problem is has only been down a couple of years. Swindler attempted to make an improovement and put fresh concrete from 60' to 330' in place of the asphault. It was a botched job and they went back in with an asphault remover and chunked the top off the new concrete to make it level. That left parts of the concrete they attempted to lower rough as a cobble stone road. That is what racers would like to see corrected. It tears up slicks and makes for dangerous passes when slicks come loose on fast cars. This condition has been brought up to management several times and gets NO response. Not even a "were looking into it" type of response. If the surface isn't made safe they will have the same dismal participation they have had in the recent past. It doesn't matter how good of a track preperation expert someone is they cannot make a surface that bad work anywhere near proper.
The ProMod race was CANCELLED a couple of weeks ago. No reason given.

The Q16 race for this Saturday has also been cancelled. Good move on Greg's part to do this. The track needs more rubber down on it for this type of racing.

Are you serious!!!!!!!! Cancel a big race on a holiday weekend that a bunch of us were planning on running!!!!! Bad news for Quaker City!!!! Hasn't anyone heard of gold dust, glue, and a track dragger!!!!!!! WWWWWWTTTTTTTTFFFFFF!!!!!!! They may as well cancel the UMTR guys on Sunday too... The stickshift guys will have a harder time getting off the starting line than we would have.

I know of atleast 5 or 6 cars that can run well into the sixes that would have been set up to run some low seven second times that had no races to go to because this race didnt conflict with any of our schedules.
