At the first race at my local track last week, half of the track was hard packed, while the other half was like driving on a beach. It was definately a challenge, but it was awesome!

Hardpacked tracks are definately great. All it takes is a little water- the dirt is still packed, but the tires aren't wearing as bad as a "Blue Groove" track would.

Blue Groove tracks are definately my favorite though. Water it once in the morning, run all day, and just blow it off before the mains. This may wear out tires more, but it's definately challenging to keep a car right in the groove and out of the loose stuff. Plus, if you've ever run a gas truck on a Blue Groove track, you'll have to agree: there's nothing like pulling full throttle out of the corner and pulling the front end up all the way down the straightaway.....
