3rd Annual JConcepts Outdoor Turf Nationals Race Info!!

Posted on Posted in At the Track, JConcepts Events Coverage

Turf racing has definitely gained traction in the US with many track facilities converting from dirt/clay to an alternative surface like carpet and astro. The high pace style of driving is consistent, intense, and gaining in popularity across the US.

JConcepts introduced the Outdoor Turf Nationals 3 years ago and growing each and every year. Adding to the roster for the 3rd edition of the Turf Nats, current IFMAR World Champion Spencer Rivkin has been confirmed for the weekend and will surely add to the challenge as he won his WC title on astro in 2015. Also, with the 2-time reigning Tuf National champion also on hand, the Wizard Alex Kosciuszek looks to defend his title as the Turf Nat’s only champion in modified. It will surely be a clash of the titans in September!

If you are looking to have a blast and test your astro skills against some of the best in the business, why not attend THE turf race of the year? Download the flyer, share the info, let’s make it happen!
