I always thought there should be a new thread started with a better title. I'll move a bunch of the important stuff into this thread and we can let the other one die.

There is already an outdoor off-road track and large dirt oval. They may have used them this last summer but I'm sure will this next year. There's maybe pictures on their website of the track being built and if the snow is somewhat gone I'll snap some pics of it this weekend and post them.

Phil and I ran stock Touring Car with a couple friends last night. Stock was a blast because they were VERY easy to drive. We were able to race more and Phil and I were never more than a lap apart in the main. I'm undecided if I'm going full blown mod for next week or just a 19turn so I can still drive it.

Figure-8s were also a blast again. Only 3 brave souls but Tom Ashton is really hoping this class can catch on. Everybody is scared to break stuff but it's really not that hard to miss each other in the X.

And if anyone talks to Everett, remind him to bring his touring car so he doesn't have anything to complain about when I still beat him.

Looking forward to another fun day at Tea's this weekend. I'm bringing my Touring Car to run stock or mod, a Fig-8 car, my Limited Late Model, and I have a B-Mod in the works as well.
