I'd stop by the Fastlane thread in the Kansas/Missouri section and let them know you plan on coming. I think some Sundays are reserved for outdoor events and such.

Some of the KC guys are coming to Denver on 8/7-8/8 to test in higher traction. I plan on having the track open for nearly 48 hours straight, so if anybody wants to road trip and get some wheel time, give me a shout.

With most of the offroad guys moving outdoors for the summer it hasn't been to bad as of late.. We do run Greens, but no one will care if you want to run Blues...

Can't wait to get to Denver, and whoop up on the great Syndrome!
