Thank you for the updates, I don't use facebook. I guess we can use even less energy in June

If they can have it in June... Why canít they have it June every year ?

April sucks. Cold wet weather, salt still on the roads and very little (no) spectators.

Summer is when it should be held.

I think there are two reasons why it's in April. I wish it was always in June too!

1. Track availability - It's usually the day before the track opens for the season.

2. Schools are involved, so it works better to have it during the school year.

Just browsing the site, apparently they let you drive 2 laps in a personal vehicle behind a pace car for only $30

I've done that a couple of times. It's a lot of fun. It used to be 3 laps for $25. Looking at the site, I think it's still 3 laps, they just stop after lap 2 for pictures. Speeds will exceed 55 MPH. I was up to 80 on the front straight one time. But it's the turns that are really fun. Slow down a bit on the straights, and you get to hit the turns a bit harder!

Hello all!! We ran the 2018 with our MINI Cooper and had a ball! Wasn't able to make it last year but now that the event is changed to late Jun I wonder if any slots have opened up? I'll contact them tomorrow to see!

Good luck to any and all that compete!

It's like Halloween is hit or miss every year.
Sometimes it snows.
Sometimes it's 60* and perfect.
Sometimes it hurricanes.
Sometimes its 60* with 60 mph winds.

You never know, lol.

But, cold dense air....
