The 60% surface change is easy to get around. Just put some junk on the surface of the practice race. Peatmoss, sand, Tide, Traxxas parts, ground up small mammals.

Then blow that junk off after the race is over.

It's a US warm up race... It was just dubbed that way because the timing of the event.. It's just a marketing strategy

good question! why have a "warm up race" at a completely different facility? It seems kind of silly to me..

It definitely looks like an awesome track but the picture looks very fake also. It could be because of the panoramic program that was used, but something doesn't look right.
