JCP Outdoor 1/8th Scale track / Johnson County Park Location

JCP Outdoor 1/10th Scale track / Johnson County Park Location

OUTDOOR Track: Edinburgh, IN/Camp Atterbury/Johnson County Park

Measuring in at 185 ft by 120 ft, this 1:8 scale monster is one of the largest (if not the largest) tracks in the Midwest. Boasting an 18 ft tall drivers stand, centered between BOTH tracks, racing at this monster is not for the squeamish!! Nitro Buggys and Truggys have been tearing the track up since 2004. Our largest race to date was just before the track was relocated (from a mile up the road), during a Pro Series race with 350 entries. In 2011, the 1:10 scale mini-monster was added for Short Course and Mod Buggy racing. Measuring in at 100 ft by 100 ft, this track has continued to please the electric fans on a smaller scale. For those of you who enjoy racing under the lights, this is the place to be! Located within a park with camping sites, RV hook-up, shower houses, electrical access, plenty of space for pitting, and NO curfew!! This is always a fun weekend get-a-way. Every year we host The Great Pumpkin Race, where we give back to the racing community by providing a hog roast and pitch-in lunch. Complete with T-shirts, prizes, racing and food.....It doesn't get any better than that, and always guaranteed to be a good time with great racing.

THE 1/8 Scale OUTDOOR TRACK (The Monster!!)

JCP-RC Raceway General Rules


Safety is our first priority, if you see something you think is unsafe, please report it to a Track Official.

All Racers must be signed-in before accessing the driver’s stand. No exceptions.

A drivers meeting prior to each event is mandatory. Rules, procedures and race formats will be discussed during this meeting. A penalty may be assessed against any driver who does not attend the meeting.

Only drivers running their car, are allowed on any area of the driver’s stand.

Only closed toe shoes are permitted on the track. No sandals or flip-flops allowed on the track.

No children under the age of 12 years old are permitted to turn-marshal on the track when 1/8th scale or 4wd Short Course classes are running.

Distractions and coaching are prohibited during race events. You will get ONE warning, then you will be removed throughout the duration of the event.

If your car breaks during a race/qualifier please stop running and get it after the heat. This can become a hazard for current racers as well as impact the outcome of the race. The marshal’s responsibility is to marshal, not repair cars during a race.

All back-to-back multiple class racers must have a turn-marshal designated and declared to the race official before the round starts or will sacrifice the heat to marshal.

There will be a two-to-three minute grace period between heats. All racers must immediately put their cars and radios down and get into a turn marshal position within one (1) minute. If you are running back-to-back you must have your marshal designate notify the race announcer and get into position within this time period. Any racer will be allowed a one (1)-minute delay once per round. There can only be one delay per heat. The penalty for not adhering to the rules will be the subtraction of one lap per offence in the mains.

No littering, please clean-up after yourself as well as any trash in your immediate area.

Any of the following actions by a driver or his pit crew may result in disqualification from the event:

Operating a car anywhere that endangers others or while a race is going on.

Assaulting another individual.

Using any parts that do not comply with the rules.

Using improper language or actions with directors, participants, or spectators

Using improper language, yelling, or actions with marshals

Allowing individuals to substitute for you in a race.

Rough driving or intentional hacking.


Drivers must marshal for their designated race and be in position by the 1 minute call to race.

It is the original driver’s responsibility to find a substitute and he is responsible for the actions of that substitute.

Turn marshals are not permitted to repair vehicles. Marshals will take disabled vehicles to the closest outer edge of the race track as soon as possible. When marshaling a vehicle, it should be returned to the point where it left the racing surface. Care must be exercised not to interfere with on-coming vehicles.

Turn marshals are expected to watch their corner and not the race. Marshals must watch for on-coming traffic while entering the track to marshal a vehicle, and when placing the vehicle back onto the track.

A vehicle running on the track has the right of way over a vehicle that has become disabled.

No Tolerance Policy

There will be no fighting, or illegal activities tolerated. No use of foul language, trash talking, arguing with track officers and fellow competitors. No unsportsmanlike conduct, yelling at turn-marshals or cheating. If anyone is caught conducting any of the above mentioned, or is associated with these activities, you will be asked to leave the premises immediately. You will also forfeit your entry fee.

Please, have the right attitude. This is a hobby and supposed to be FUN! No cursing or temper tantrums. We are a family friendly track.

No person attending JCP-RC Raceway will have any claim for damages, expenses, lawsuits or otherwise against a promoter, track operator, its officials, agents or employees, resulting from any damage to any car, personal injury, or monetary loss, of any kind whatsoever. All attendants waive any claim they may have against a promoter, track operator or JCP-RC Raceway when they participate in any event being run under these rules. Signing up and paying race or practice fees indicate a racers agreement to the above statements.
