If there's one thing America knows how to do, it's build a parking lot. There are thousands upon thousands of smooth, grippy parking lots all across this land. They are the foundation of outdoor onroad club racing. Let's not rule them out!

So onroad in Europe is high-income motorsport mega-track nirvana. Fine.

We can be the scrappy middle class get-it-done fighters. Even better.

We know who went to the moon

That's a nice track, did they bid for the Nats??

Reminds me of Tamiya but with the straight in the back..

I agree. I talked to Brent about it and he said the owner wasn't interested. Maybe things have changed since a couple weeks ago.

Based on some of the posts I'm wagering a guess that the track will have a blue infield. Not the CO blue. I'll keep my pants on though.

Dont underestimate the northwest racing scene. This is a killer track to race on. elevation change etc. very cool to race here. the BUS is fantastic. biggest driver stand ive been on. lots of elbow room for 10 drivers. Great program too. lots of hotels and great food in the area and right next to interstate 5.
