I would also like to thank Eric Wilson for his vision of the reworked track. I have pics I will try to post them from my BB Storm while I'm at work. O yeah practice is from 4-8 today july 3rd

Here's some pics of the reworked track. We took about 45' off the straight, we took the second 2 jumps out of the double series & made the first jump a roller, we also made some of the table tops into nice elevation changes.
Our drivers stand is up with the steps & we are working on the Hcapp ramp. We will be using an AMB system with alleycat software. The first week we will only be able to score with personal transponders because I have to send the house transponders out for new batteries. I figure it will take a little over a week to get them back.

Only hobbyshop within 70 miles of Morgantown that carries fuel. It's located off I-68 on the Sabraton exit in Dellslow.

a few folks showed up but not enough to hold a race. hopefully, once the word gets spread more will show up. This track has the potential to be something huge.
