Cody ran soft impact for the 2nd round of qualifying, and it was stupid how much corner speed he had on the grooved up sections. For the night time main with moisture coming up, he ran ss grid irons... Milestone is turning into quite the track. Would love to see more races there.

+1 Bill - Milestone was a great track, perfectly equipped to handle a JBRL event. The track held up pretty well also, and was pretty gentle on tire/chassis wear. Pit lane could use some improvements (raise it) but it was nice and wide which was a plus.

+1 pitpop - soft impacts in rd 2 of quals were ultra-dialed! I ran those as well and out-did my rd 1 time by about 7 seconds on a track that was slightly more blown out - car was hooked. What made you choose grids over impacts for the main?

Milestone, great job, you guys were an excellent host track - can't wait to come back!!

Track was dialed. It held up a lot better than I expected too. I'll be back for sure.

moisture came up big time and he liked the feel of the smaller pin on the wet

What kind of track conditions did you have that made Impacts works so well? We have been running city blocks mostly with I beams on rear sometimes. Occasionally we'll run calibers. Looking to experiment a little more. I think the tracks here in CO are mostly hard packed with some dust on top.

It was in the middle of the day and a nice groove had developed on the racing line. Not a blue groove, but the racing line was hard packed and clean. If you can find pictures of Thunder Alley during the Nationals, the way Milestone looked during the second qualifying round was similar.

This track has a lot of potential to be great....I would drive an extra 10-15 min to club race here, every Sat.. Put a Levi, Joey, or Jimmie layout in and a little work to the track a decent progam director..and they will come

Yes, which they normally use for 1/5 scale stuff. The track behind it was decent size too, huge for 10th scale but the lanes were a little small for 8th scale. One thing they could add is a proper air compressor-that poor pancake one sounded pretty spent!
