It's getting close, time to start thinking about packing it up.

I have been all over the world and its the same story about weather lol. The rain possibilities on Thursday-Saturday should bring the traction up pretty high unless the heaters are left on to dry out the track.

Yeah, it will probably get pretty high. More glue and harder swaybars. Keep the weight on the tires but if it starts to bicycle the glue will save you.

Are we running on Gravity C tires?

Most likely so. Every major event on black carpet has used them so far.

I'm going to try and post the schedule for each day on our Facebook page. May not get a chance to cross post it here as it gets pretty hectic at the event. So, definitely keep an eye on https://www.facebook.com/5280Raceway/.

Live video, timing & scoring and practice laps are all available for free on our site at 5280 Raceway. Video is up now if you want to watch some early arrivals do laps, and later watch us put down the race layout. Track is closed for practice at 5PM today so we can start prepping, and will be open again tomorrow morning. If you're in town tonight, feel free to come by.

Exceptionally well run event and Barry did a great job calling the races. The extra half-round of heat races on Saturday was a stroke of genius. Well done 5280. See you next year! P.S. Thanks for the warm weather - it was a nice change from the blizzards in 2015 & 2016.
