 Arrowhead Raceway - Germany

Track History/Background
Germany's Arrowhead Raceway, located in Frankfurt, Germany was built in 2012 as Porsche's proving grounds. In 2023, a joint operating agreement was struck between Porsche and Heckler & Koch Vehicular Weapon Systems. The track was converted to a firing range/proving grounds. In November of 2036, Porsche and Heckler & Koch executives sold the track to a German business man. The track was resurfaced and granted application to the CADC.

The Arrowhead is a true race track. In fact, many people were skeptical when they heard that the CADC was going to feature a track that did not have any bottlenecks, intersections or hairpin turns. But the fans showed them and filled the stands at every race at this super-speedway. In fact, the Arrowhead has seen some of the highest TV ratings of all the tracks on the circuit. Many of the drivers rightfully refer to the Arrowhead as the Autobahn of the CADC.

 

 Corcovado - Brazil

Track History/Background
Located in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Corcovado was a new track to the CADC in 2049, yet has one of the longest histories of any current CADC event. Corcovado was named and used by a couple of railroad entrepreneurs attempting to promote tourism in late 19th century Rio. Corcovado first gained international notoriety in 1921. This was when The Statue of the Christ was built atop Corcovado, a tribute to a century of Brazil's independence. The site remained a popular tourist attraction right through the end of the 20th Century.

In 2007, a minor earthquake struck Rio causing only minor damage. But it did cause Corcovado to settle slightly and caused the Statue of the Christ to lean just slightly. Brazil was one of the countries hit hardest by the Food Riots. From 2013 to 2018, the country was in chaos, with no organized leadership and constant food shortages. Local churches organized food drops with international aid groups to help relieve the food shortages. These drops would occur on the top of Corcovado. Corcovado soon become a renewed symbol of salvation to the residents to Rio, but the climb to the top was a struggle, as residents battled one another to reach whatever meager foodstuffs lay at the top. Even when a resident was able to obtain food, then they still had to fight their way down, protecting what they had earned, from gangs and starving, desperate residents. This went on for five years, until world food production met demand.

In 2038, a local businessman, Enrique Acevedo, a survivor of the food riots, came up with an idea to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the end of that horrible time. Mr. Acevedo offered a $50,000 cash award to the winner of "To Corcovado and Back". The race was an instant success drawing spectators from all over South America. The first winner, Wilfredo Garcia, was the only one to have a weapon mounted on his car, "Nobody said we couldn't use weapons", was the headline in the local newspapers the next day. In 2039, everybody had weapons, making for a much bloodier race, but Wilfredo won again. From 2040 to 2048, Corcovado was the Crown Jewel in the Brazilian Autoduel Racers Cup (BARC). During 2048, Wilfredo Garcia, now Chairman of the "Race to Corcovado and Back", approached the CADC Expansion Committee about adding Corcovado to the CADC schedule. His timing was perfect, since the CADC was looking to expand and add another off-road race. They reviewed the past history of Corcovado and immediately added it to the 2049 schedule. Clive Hilbert, CADC Director of Marketing says of Corcovado, "It is a unique track to the CADC, with traffic going both ways, with lots of carnage and collisions, just what we like at the CADC!"

With only two races under its belts to date, the CADC already has a "long" history at Corcovado. Certain trends seem to be appearing. First of all, Dave Altz is the kill of this hill with both races giving him the checkered flag. Second, hat tricks and kills are very high on this track. Tim Gould knocked out three racers in the 2049 race and Altz racked up three of his own in 2050. Third, the mountain seems to have its favorite drivers to pick on. None of these active drivers have placed above seventh at Corcovado: Keith Scherer, Mike Golczynksi, Mark Pittman, Scott Hinkley and Matt Falk. These 5 drivers have a total of nine starts between them, but the mountain has knocked them down every time.

 

Detroit International - United States

Track History/Background
The Detroit International is located just off of Detroit on Belle Isle in the Detroit River. The raceway was built over the Grand Prix track that was raced on between 1988 and 2012. The track was converted to a dueltrack after Grand Prix racing ended. Acceleration is the name of the game on this track. The long straight-away begs for speed, while the banked lighthouse turnaround demands low speeds. Detroit is the only CADC track to feature a straight-away where traffic head in both directions.

Detroit has been on the CADC circuit for the past six seasons in a roll and is a fan favorite. It has had a long and exciting history. It was the first and only race to ever have the red flag waved. It was back on 11/27/2038 when Steve Lindholm (Japan) rammed John Carlson (France) in the Lighthouse Turnaround and their wrecks clogged the track. The track had to be cleared and restarted. Rob Bruce went on to win the race. During the winter race at Detroit in the 2049 season, Tim Gould (Texas) went on to lead all drivers to the finish line without the luxury of a partner that race. Keith Scherer finished the 2049 the way he started the season with a win.

 

 Diablo's Fork - Spain/Montana

Track History/Background
Diablo's Fork was originally located in Madrid, Spain. Construction for this tight-turning duel track began in 2034 with the intention of being ready for the 2036-37 season. However, labor disputes and constructions problems on the top two hairpins delayed the tracks opening until the 2037-38 season. Unfortunately, Spain has only had one driver in the CADC. That driver was Sean Stewart who only raced for Spain in one race before he was recruited to race for Australia for the remainder of the season. In mid 2047, immediately after signing veteran racers Scott Jordan and Kenny Mack, Montana bought the Fork from Spain. The hairpins were airlifted to Montana and the remaining track was built around them. Construction ended in late June of 2048. The Fork was raced in Montana once in 2048, once during the first half of the 2049 season, and will be the first track to see action twice in one season as the 13th race of the 2049 season. Now that Team Montana is bankrupt, more and more rumors continue to speculate on its location starting with the 2050 season. An interesting rumor suggests that Team USA is negotiating to purchase the track as a "gift" to keep Ted Judson, the 2048 Individual Point Standings winner, with Team USA. Los Angeles (the city of angels) is the city that is being suggested for the location of this devilish track.

The Fork has seen action in four of the six previous seasons. The first race on the Fork was during the 2037-38 season in which Ted "Rocket-Man" Judson tore up the field when he picked up six kills in one race. That CADC record still stands today. Team Germany finished one-two during that race with Judson's partner that season, Mike Manderachia, leading the two across the start-finish line. Matt Hampton visited the winner's circle in the 2038-39 season. A rookie, Tony "Hot Dog" Krempa took the checkered flag in 2039-40. The 2040-41 season saw Hampton visiting the winner's circle for the second time at the Fork. Hampton increased his wins at the Fork to three during the 2048 season when he lead his teammate, Tim Gould across the line. The first half of 2049 season saw Matt Falk claim his second career victory in his very first race for Team Italy.

 

 Dublin Shamrock - Ireland

Track History/Background
The Dublin Shamrock in Dublin, Ireland finished construction in December of 2038 in time for the 2038-39 season. Unfortunately that first race at the Shamrock saw very low driver and fan attendance. The track underwent a radical facelift for the 2039-40 season. The original track had four hairpin turns in the center of the track. Each turn connected two leaves of the Shamrock. Although the design allowed for more across the track shots, it really lowered the speeds of the vehicles. The facelift in 2039 removed the four hairpins in the center and replaced them with the largest (and only) eight-way intersection in the CADC. This change not only increases speeds dramatically, but it also makes for some exciting racing as drivers must cross through the intersection four times per lap. Unfortunately, Team Ireland has only produced two drivers who only made it to one race. This has been the main reason for the Shamrock missing the schedule for the last few seasons. With the CADC's expanded schedule and large fan support, the green of Ireland will again be seen as the the Shamrock sees CADC action for the first time in over nine years.

In the last few months, Ireland officials have been working very closely with a California based company to build the California Clover. It is a dueltrack based primary on the Dublin Shamrock and saw its first action with the west coast based racing league known as DRACAR.

The Shamrock has been raced four times in CADC history. The first race (with the four hairpins in the middle) was won by Jerry Mack (Japan) on 03/12/39. The second race (with the eight-way intersection) was won by Cam Gould (USA) on 05/27/40. The third race was race 10 of the 2041 season. This data was recently rediscovered and Cam Gould (USA) won his second race in a row at the Shamrock on 03/21/41. And in 2049, Mike Howard returned to the CADC (racing for Ted Judson of Team USA) and won the race.

 

 Ferrari Testgrounds - Italy

Track History/Background
The Ferrari Testgrounds, located in Florence, Italy, were built by Ferrari back in the spring of 2024. As the name implies, it was where Ferrari tested its high performance line of sport cars. The Testgrounds were converted into a dueltrack in 2031 when Ferrari realized that it could not just produce fast cars. The company realized that its future depended on producing fast cars that could dish out a beating, while taking one. The Testgrounds were added to the CADC circuit just in time for the 2037-38 season and has become a regular fixture on the CADC schedule since. The long straight-away encourages high speeds, while the bottleneck and tight turns right afterwards keeps everyone honest.

Team Texas has adapted the Testgrounds as their home away from home with their strong finishes here. They won the first three races in Florence with Tim Gould winning the first two and Mike Manderachia taking the third. In the inaugural race, Noel Syminton put a shot through Gould's armor that killed the driver as Gould crossed the finish line. Gould was the first driver to win a race with a dead driver. Scott Jordan ended the Texan winning streak at three by taking the checkered flag in the 2040-41 season. But in 2048, Team Texas continued its dominance at the Testgrounds by finishing one-two with Matt Hampton leading Gould to victory lane. Matt Lintemuth won the 2049 race beating the Texans to the finish line first at a blistering 232.5 mph, but they finished next in second and third (Hampton-Gould). The Testgrounds was the site for the first Qualifying Race for the AADA 2049 World Racing Championship were MJ Daniels proved that he had the right stuff as he took the pole position all the way to the checkered flag. Daniels later went on to become the AADA 2050 World Racing Champion.

 
 Iron Dragon - Japan
 

 Jormungandr Duelway - Norway

Track History/Background
The newest addition to the CADC family, the Jormungandr Duelway, is located in Oslo, Norway. Construction was not completed in time for inclusion in the 2049 CADC season schedule but the newest duelway will see action this summer when the CADC hosts the 2049 AADA World Racing Championship. It will be one of the qualifying tracks for the event. The track is named after the mythical monster, the Midgard Serpent. One of three children of Loki, Jormungandr was deemed too dangerous to live among the gods and was cast out by the All-Father, Odin. The Norse believed that the Serpent lay sleeping in the great ocean, biting its own tail with its body wrapped around the world, Midgard, with all of mankind caught within his coils. They believed that the Serpent would awaken during Ragnarok, the end of the universe, arising from the ocean and ravaging the land. A terrible battle would ensue between Jormungandr and Thor with the Thunder God vanquishing the monster but he himself eventually dying from its poisons.

The track features 3 bottlenecks and a double intersection near the center of the track that creates 3 intertwined loops. Grandstand seating is available within the loops as well as along the outside of the track. Designers explain that these features were built to enhance the illusion of the Midgard Serpent's constricting coils with mankind caught within them.

 

 Kangaroo Park - Australia

Track History/Background
Kangaroo Park in Sidney, Australia was built back in 2012 on the location of an old kangaroo preservation zoo. After the great fire of 2001 that consumed 75% Australia, the kangaroo population was reduced to 20% of its original size. Cell samples were taken from the remaining population and cloned kangaroos were raised on the zoo for the next 10 years until the population was restored. To always remind the Australian people how close they came to losing their prized national symbol, a park and dueltrack were built over the original zoo. Kangaroos are allowed to rome the track when events are not being held.

Three CADC races have been held at the Park. The first was back during the 2037-38 season where Tim Gould picked up his second career victory. The Park was taken off the schedule because Australia was having a hard time maintaining a team. All that changed when Keith Scherer joined Team Australia and restored pride to the Australian people. In fact, Scherer went on to win the second race held at the Park during the 2039-40 season. The 2048 season saw Ted Judson (USA) tie the 12 year old record of four consectutive races in a row. Judson shattered the track record during qualifying and never looked back. The Park was the first CADC track to feature a 90 degree turn.

 

 King Cobra Raceway - India

Track History/Background
The King Cobra – Mumbai, India. The King Cobra was introduced to the CADC during the 2049 season, and is certainly one of the most unique. India has long been a nation of CADC fans, dating back to the start of the circuit back in 2036. Through no fault of their own they have never had a team, but instead have divided into several factions that root for various other teams instead. The construction of the track was done in stages, with the original track (circa 2009) being a tiny figure-8 around the snake pits where roller-derby events were held, and the losers often feeding the snakes below. In 2029 the track was expanded, with an oval shape using the snake pit as the "back straight" section. Largely used for motorcycle events due to its small size, it quickly exploded in popularity thanks in part to the gruesome fate that awaited a rider unlucky enough to crash into the pits. Track organizers played on this unique angle, and with the 2031 racing season the track was renamed to the Cobra's Lair, with Cobras being stocked exclusively in the pits. Fans were so enthusiastic about the snakes that some of the larger ones earned names, and wagering on which snake would attack first became a popular side attraction at the betting counters. By 2038, interest in the CADC was growing rapidly in India, but failure to finance a home team kept the track off the schedule for the time being. In 2047 the latest expansion project took place, adding a series of narrow twisting turns to the back half of the track and bringing in even more interest from international racing leagues. Then in late 2048, it was announced that the expansion to 20 races by the CADC was giving the newly re-named King Cobra Raceway its chance in the sun.

The wildly fanatic fan base made sure that there were no empty seats for the inaugural race at the King Cobra during the 2049 race. They saw Team Texas lead the race from the green flag to checkered flag as Tim Gould lead from the pole through the first lead lap where his teammate, Matt Hampton, took over to claim his first victory of the 2049 campaign. In addition to the win, Hampton picked up two kills, the Hard Hitter Award and the Hard Charger Award. Just another day at the office for the veteran driver.

 

 Lake Joux OR Duelpark - Switzerland

Track History/Background
Located in the middle of Switzerland’s Lake Joux, this off-road venue offers a combination of rugged action with a fairly well defined racing path. The track runs around the exterior of a small, tree covered island. With Team Switzerland’s entrance in to the CADC in 2048 and hoping to capitalize on the popularity of autodueling in the region, the Swiss government decided to build a state-of-the art duelpark for use by their home team and wealthy tourists.

With construction space being at a premium, the island site was deemed perfect and construction was started immediately. The main track roughly follows the shore line of the island. The stand of old growth pine trees in the center of the isle was left standing and was reinforced with a mess of high test steel cable, to prevent vehicular passage. The area between the main track and the tree line was cleared to expand the racing surface. The ground in this area is rough gravel, covered with large rocks and small tree stumps. An enormous boulder, hugs the inside of the turn where the dueling line is placed. Passage around the boulder on the inside of the track is impossible. To the exterior of the main track lies the muddy shore line and the lake itself. Vehicles may safely travel through the lake near its edge but must be careful not to venture too far out as the water become unpredictably deep and can stall an engine.

The duelpark has no spectator seating. Fans must watch the action from boats and hot air balloons. The rental of both can be arranged from the mainland at a variety government owned facilities.

The track was completed in the spring of 2049 and officials hope to capture a spot on the CADC’s 2050 season schedule despite the absence of an active Team Switzerland this year.

 

 Linked Chains - Japan

Track History/Background
Japan's Linked Chain, located in Kyoto, Japan should have been raced in the 2038-39 season in place of the Iron Dragon. A labor strike cut the construction short by two weeks, so the Iron Dragon was run instead. The Linked Chain is the only CADC track with two separate intersections. Drivers will go straight through the first intersection after the starting line, then they will make a right turn at the second intersection. They will then continue back straight through the first again and then take a left when they reach the second intersection again. Although this track features two 90 degree turns, the other turns are not very tight, so speeds should still be high. The Linked Chain was closed after Team Japan folded at the end of the 2040-41 season. When the CADC announced it expanded schedule in 2049 the offices in New York received thousands and thousands of requests for Japan's Linked Chain to be added back to the schedule. CADC Officials hope the renewed interest in the track will lead to the support for Team Japan's reentry back into the CADC.

The Linked Chain has only been raced once. Tim Gould won that race back on 05/13/40. It was actually scheduled to be raced a second time towards the end of the 2040-41 season, but the season was ended prematurely after race #7.

 

 Logger's Run - Canada

Track History/Background
Vancouver Raceway, "The Logger’s Run", Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The basis of this track was originally built in 2024 and catered to the mud racing fanatics of the Vancouver and Seattle area. With the advent of autoduelling, this track became a favorite site for all types of Autoduelling events. Arena and Racing events were held weekly and things looked bright for this small track.

Owner Gus Van Eyick saw his track mentioned in Autoduel Weekly (July 12, 2028), the premier magazine for Autoduellists and fans alike. The events he held, mostly the three-wheeled types, saw a marked increase during the summer of ’29, when Peter "Lumberjack" Haines won the first ever Vancouver Logjam. Aptly named, the walls of the track were built out of actual logs; that when hit properly, could create an obstruction that other drivers would have no other choice than to ram. The event was a huge success, and only helped to cement the Raceway into the hearts and minds of the Pacific Northwest.

In the 2030’s, Gus Van Eyick sold the track to his nephew, Aric Van Eyick, who began a vigorous expansion on the track and the schedule of events. Realizing that autoduelling was not going away any time soon, he carried on the tradition of the Vancouver Logjam. Who could ever forget the antics of "Masked Man" Bihouc or 4 time winner, Jean "Big Red" Pierre.

In 2034, Aric replaced the logs with cement fixtures, and created permanent grand stand seating. Many felt that this helped ruin the feel of the Logjam, and fans refused to acknowledge any event as such. Aric, trying to rebuild the track's reputation, renamed the track to the Logger’s Run. This did not sit well with fans, and attendance records began to fall sharply.

Attendance and sponsorships nearly ceased in the early 40’s. Several newer facilities had been built near Victoria and Seattle that offered more than the typical run-of-the-mill race. Aric Van Eyick was forced to file bankruptcy, and the city of Vancouver was handed an outdated track to manage. A committee was formed to seek ways to recoup some type of investment from the ailing facility. Several rabid fans staged marches and rallies trying to save the "Logger’s Run". One of these, Allyson McReddy, managed to raise enough money to purchase it from the city.

In 2047, ownership was transferred to Ms. McReddy and she began an intense period of brainstorming with her staff to come up with ways to "re-invent" the track that had been a part of Vancouver since the early days of Autoduelling. One of her ideas was to bring back the classic "Log Jam" with a newly designed crossover track section.

Hoping to capitalize upon the resurgence of the CADC and other racing leagues, she quickly set about hosting events that were reminiscent of the old Logjam events.

The 2048 Season saw the first time that a Canadian Team was represented in the CADC. Hoping to lobby both drivers for a chance to be named the home track, Ms. McReddy’s hopes were dashed when both drivers opted out of their contracts early in the season.

With the announcement that a new Team Canada would be racing in 2049, she immediately began renovating the track, investing all of her time and money to make an impression. With the help of Rookie Driver, Dirk Ringersma, the track took on a new look that is sure to catch the eye of the CADC officials. Sporting a twisted cross section "The Jam", a hairpin turn "Big Bend", and a bottleneck "The Flume", Allyson McReddy has faith that the CADC and Team Canada will embrace this new track and bring back to Vancouver the beloved sport of Autoduelling.

 

 Louisiana OR Mudflats - Louisiana

Track History/Background
Louisiana Mudflats in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The history of the Mudflats actually starts at the Ozark Off-Road Autoduel Arena in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The two brothers who owned and operated the Ozark run a very successful business together, but over time the relationship was strained as the younger brother accused the older of being to ridged and not open to change. In 2039, the younger brother sold his interest in the Ozark and moved to Baton Rouge. He bought a few acres of mostly mudflat land and built an off-road racing track on it. It was an overnight success with the locals of Baton Rouge, but it was not until 2047 that the Mudflats had the attention of Dueling/Racing World. On June 14, 2047, the CADC ran a trial Off-Road Race with a experimental OR Racing Pickup design. The event was originally aired at 3:00 a.m. on ESPN7. Then the phone calls started poring in as the few people who watched it told their friends who told their friends and so on. ESPN has replayed the event in prime-time over 12 times now. The CADC quickly changed its schedule for the 2048 season to include the Mudflats.

Ted Judson won the inaugural race at the Mudflats and his partner Kevin Mack finished right behind him. A strong fan and driver interest surfaced immediately after the race, and the CADC announced two more OR races for the 2049 season. Tim Gould won the second race at the Mudflats with the help from his partner Matt Hampton who slowed down and took out the lead two cars, so Gould could finish first during the early race at the Mudflats during the 2049 season. Later that year, the Mudflats served as the location for the second Qualifying Race for the AADA 2049 World Racing Championship. Mark Pittman earned the outside position of row number one in the WRC Finals by winning at the Mudflats. Team Texas finished one-two at the Mudflats (Hampton-Gould) during the late race in 2049 where Hampton picked up his first career hat trick.

 

 Montezuma's Revenge - Mexico

Track History/Background
Montezuma's Revenge is located in Mexico City, Mexico has now seen action three time on the CADC circuit (the 1st, 4th and 8th seasons). In early 2039 (before the 4th season), the Great Quake of '39 hit Mexico. Buildings, factories, homes and business were destoried in all directions. Interesting enough, the whole Montezuma's Revenge track was destroyed expect for the Spear Head Intersection. The track had to be rebuilt in time for the scheduled race on 04/22/40. The crews did an increadible job rebuilding the whole track around the orginial intersection and bringing it up to the current CADC standards. They finished with two weeks to spare before the race. Besides the Spear-Head, Montezuma also features a hairpin turn, but the turn in banked to keep speeds up.

 

 Montreal Duelway - Canada

Track History/Background
Montreal Duelway, Montreal Quebec/Canada was the site for the very first CADC race held back on October 4th, 2036. With the 2051 season, Montreal has opened up the season for seven of the ten seasons and nine of the seasons it was either the first or second race of the season. It has been called the Daytona of the CADC. The city of Montreal shuts down for the week before and after the race to celebrate the races in a true Canadian style. The Duelway is one of the oldest dueltracks on the circuit and has been called a traditional CADC dueltrack featuring both a bottleneck and an intersection.

The Duelway has been good to Team Texas from the beginning when Matt Hampton won the CADC's very race. The team has since picked up three more victories here, '40-41 Hampton, '44 Tim Gould and '49 Hampton and it has placed in the top three seven times. Keith Scherer has also won three races in Montreal. He became the first and only rookie to win his first CADC race, a record he set in November of 2038 in Montreal. In 2048, Scherer took the pole all the way to the checkered flag to lead a record field of 20 drivers all day long. Early 2049 saw Scherer move all the way up from ninth place to claim his second win in a row on the CADC's spotlight track. Kevin Mack entered the record books in the late 2049 race with four kills in a race, a feat that is only second to Ted Judson's six kills in one race at Germany's Arrowhead. Scott Hinkley started Louisiana's dominance of the CADC in 2050 as he lead his partner Matt "George" Lintemuth to victory lane to become the first team to finish one-two at the Duelway. In that race, Hampton also picked up two kills to increase his average to one kill per each of his seven starts at the Duelway.

 

 New Olympic Duelway - Greece

Track History/Background
Athens, Greece: In 2046, with the renaissance of Greece and the rising world popularity of autodueling, several Greek Government officials and private businessmen decided it was time for Greece to have their own dueltrack. Greek citizens were unable to get tickets to the sold out races at the Ferrari Testgrounds and local citizens groups expressed severe concerns regarding the safety of the Stevenson Dome, the two closest tracks to the duel-hungry Greek fans. Led by private businessman, Theodorus Naussus, a number of public fund raising drives occurred in a few months, attempting to raise enough capital to begin construction of a dueling facility. Naussus had his capital in five months and ground was broken on January 31, 2048. Construction continued through the end of August 2048, when cost overruns threatened to halt the project. Naussus believed the desire of the Greek populace to have a world renowned dueling facility was at such a fever pitch, that he put Public Seat Licenses up for sale. Naussus was correct, in a little over two weeks, every seat license was sold. The licenses for the best seats sold for 100,000,000 drachma ($332,000 U.S.) Naussus was able to completely fund the project and complete it ahead of schedule, in June of 2049. The Autodueling-Racing association of Greece (ARG) had the privilege of opening the new track in July of 2049. Rookie Stefanos Aristes was christened the first winner of the New Olympic International Duelway, showing everyone that Greece was ready for the Autoduellists of the world.

 
 New York Circuit - United States
 

 Poland's Kowalski Run - Poland

Track History/Background
Poland's Kowalski Run in Krakow, Poland is largely funded by Kowalski Inc., the largest producer of real meat products. The Kowalski family is very involved in the day to day operations of the track along with the main business. In fact, Joseph Kowalski, the president personally walks over the whole track before each major race to ensure a perfect race. Even though the CADC has not actively raced on the Kowalski Run lately, the track is still used all year long. The European dueling/racing circuits are very popular and Kowalski serves up one of the best tracks. Of course they also serve up the best sausages in the world.

The Kowalski Run was originally scheduled to be raced during the 2037-38 season as the fifth race, but unfortunately that season ended prematurely and the Kowalski family had to wait until the 2038-39 season to show off its prized track to the CADC. Mike Manderachia won the April 9, 2039 race. The first shot of the race was by John Carlson and he placed a VMG round into Tim Gould's weapon port. The shot took out Gould's only weapon and hit his engine. The engine blew a rod that shot through the rest of the engine making it useless. Although Gould's day ended quickly, Jay Sackett's ended much worse when Jerry Mack T-Boned him resulting in a huge flaming mess and their deaths.

 
 Queen's Ring - England
 

 Russian Roulette - Russia

Track History/Background
The Russian Roulette Raceway in Moscow, U.S.S.R. was built to replace the Do Dudaynia Raceway in Siberia that was raced back in the 2036-37 season. Not only does the RRR include a 90 degree turn and the Roulette section, but it also sports one of the longest straight-aways around. Lack of team support pulled the RRR from the CADC active schedule for a few years, but it was added to the 2049 schedule after the fans demanded it.

Kenny Mack won his first race here back on June 10, 2040 during his rookie season. Team Australia claimed its first ever one-two finish, Keith Scherer-Dave Altz, during the 2049 race that saw only 1 of the 11 starting drivers killed.

 

Scotland's Claymore Run - Scotland

Track History/Background
With the addition of Team Scotland to the CADC in the 2048 season, team officials held a contest for Scottish autodueling fans to help design their new home track. Land was purchased and developed awaiting the results of the contest. The winning design was based on the traditional Scottish great sword, the claymore. The outlook for construction of the track looked bleak in 2048 due to lack of participation from Team Scotland in the 2nd half of the season. To their credit, team officials began construction with the future of their racing team being uncertain. Funding became an issue and slowed the construction greatly. Team Scotland again fielded a new team in the middle of the 2049 season and appears to be on the come back. The track, which was originally planned to be ready for the 2049 season, will likely debut in 2050 season due to the return of rejuvenated race team.

The track itself sports a combination of elements. The long straightaway sections will promote high speeds but the 3 hairpin turns and many curves will lend themselves to acceleration and handling. The "Hilt" section should encourage back runners to shoot toward the front as targeting distance will be relatively shorter from both ends of this section.

 

 Stevenson Dome - Switzerland

Track History/Background
The Stevenson Dome (a.k.a. the Big Dome) was built in 2042, to hold a crowd of 33,000.  It's held it's first event on July 1st, 2042, to a sold out crowd.  In 2043, the Arena was expanded in several areas.  First, it doubled the size of the arena field, and allowed for more VIP boxes to be built along the outer rim of the Dome.  An upper level was added, creating a split level arena, allowing combatants to jump from one level to another, or to use one of two ramps.  The seating capacity was increased to 65,000.  The arena boasts one of the safest dueling facilities in the country, with 2 inch bullet proof glass to keep the fans from being harmed, (at least from vehicular weaponry.)

The typical fans that attend the Dome are locals who just love to see a good combat, and they have been known to get real rowdy, especially with those who support rival teams.  As a comparison, these brawls are known to rival those of the World Cup Soccer League Events of the 1980's and 1990's.

The CADC held its first ever standings points event at the Big Dome in 2048. Ted Judson started his record tying four event winning streak here that season.

 

 Texas Twister - Texas

Track History/Background
The Texas Twister, Austin, Texas was constructed back in 2001 and is one of the oldest tracks on the circuit. It was originally built for the elite armed force of Texas, the Texas National Guard, as their training grounds. Up until 2036, the National Guard was the only user of the track. In June of 2036, Texas began try-outs for its CADC team. The Twister was the perfect track to find the best of Texas. The Twister has remained the practice grounds of Team Texas ever since Matt Hampton and Tim Gould joined together. The National Guard still use the track as their primary training grounds and on occasion Hampton and Gould can be seen running training scenarios with the National Guard. The Twister is the only CADC dueltrack to feature a bottleneck, an intersection and a pylon straight-away.

The inaugural race on the Texas Twister was won by Tim Gould (Texas) in front of his home crowd during the 2038-39 season. Keith Scherer (Australia) picked up the next two races in Texas. Gould finished right behind Scherer in the 2039-40 season race that saw Brian Benner (Germany) pick up his first career Hat-Trick. And the 2040-41 season saw Team Australia (Scherer & Benner) taking out Team Texas. Gould fell victim to Scherer's spike dropper at 225 mph and Matt Hampton (Texas) could not withstand a T-Bone Ram from Benner. In the 2048 season, Matt Lintemuth (Louisiana) earned his first win (also the only rookie to win in 2048) to end the season. Scherer returned to his winning ways in the first half of the 2049 season when he lead from pole to finish to pick up his third win at the Twister to lead all other drivers in points earned on the track.

The Texas Twister was the site for the AADA 2049 World Racing Championship final race. After three qualifying races, the starting order was decided with MJ Daniels, Mark Pittman and Andrew Hughes in the top three spots. An exciting race followed with four of the starting eight drivers dying, Scott Hinkley picking up two kills to become the WRC Weekend's only Ace, and Sean Hixenbaugh destroying Daniels' spoiler and engine. Fortunately for Daniels, his lead was large enough to hold off Pittman by a mere 3 1/2 car lengths. Dana Madsen placed in third and Hinkley finished in fourth.
