About this track

* 5/5/21 Under Construction *

The Deep Eddy raceway is the track that almost "never was". We left our dream home in search of kinder neighbors and more familiar territory, a process that had us competing in a housing market that was probably never going to work out in our favor but proved to be worth the fight! We also experienced a historic weather event that derailed our plans and comfort and so much more in so many ways. After lots of storage units, moving, more moving, patience, more patience and lots of hard work and some good 'ole luck, LYDC has a new home and a new track: The Deep Eddy Raceway. 

This course is inspired by our love of rally-style jumps, long straights and the Austin Texas landscape. The course begins with a JLH Krafts mechanical gate into HW orange track...into a Slanman Customs 90 degree turn and then more laned HW track before hitting the AFCR track which merges in and out of 1970 Mattel Fat Track via 2L-3L and 3L-2L mergers that make it all possible. I really love the idea of opening up the course to a wider set of lanes in the final straightaway which allows for some interesting overtakes. We spent two weeks fine-tuning this course and adjusting every angle of every portion of the track to get the performance that we now have. This effort allowed us to build a course with two jumps while still getting a very consistent performance from most well-tuned cars, both modified and stock. From a themed standpoint, this track is packed with classic Austin Texas elements as well as clever bits from the cult classic movie, "Dazed & Confused" including a "Party at the Moontower."  

We're very excited to bring the Deep Eddy Raceway to the masses with this exhilarating course designed to challenge both modified and stock drivers.  

Thanks for your support!
