Checking in from Plano. I race at Indy every Tuesday and Saturday, but I avoid the big races for now.

as for JCG, i only ran there twice last year, but had a blast both times. it is hard on cars, but hearing there will be new dirt makes it better. new dirt or not, i was planning on running there this summer anyway.
Thanks.
I will have to check it out sometime. The only downside is that it is about twice the drive time as JCG for me. I can get to JCG in like 20-25 minutes. The drive to Indy will take closer to 50 minutes or a bit over an hour if there is traffic. That's still not too bad though. Could be worse at any rate.

the track maintenance that was done (moving the pipes to give the track a new vibe) was done by me and mark. we spend several days on it with just the two of us, some rakes and square shovels. i think for the two of us working and what we were working with we did the best that could be done. to this date only 2 people had problems with it, one local and you. we recieved much positive feedback for it. we are now working on a new layout, some guys that are doing the bulk of the build are supercross racers and track builders and they are making a track that has alot of that in mind. once we get it done come on out and give it a try.
So your redoing the layout again from what you did a few weeks ago?

I am in D-F/W also. I like Indy for convenience, I am only 20 minutes away. It is nice to be able to make a short drive and practice in a facility with provided tables, chairs, compressed air, etc.
I personally prefer JCG. I like the challenge of outdoor racing more. It is a different element, more bumps, ruts, dry track, makes you drive better. Yes you have to bring all your own track side equipment but to me its worth it. I hope JCG goes nowhere. I enjoy racing Indy in the winter and JCG in the summer.
