The rest will be changed as needed as we get things more set as far as track goes. I thought it best to leave what was there instead of stripping it out until later.

And Gianni,

The Arizona States Championships in the 23rd and 24th of November as posted and track will be have sugar once again. Start times to be set closer to date.
A sugared track may kill attendance

Having never run a sugared track what is it you guys don't like about it? Too much traction?

tire wear. States houses a lot of local self funded guys. I think sugar is a mistake.

You guys are so grumpy... . States was a blast last year with sugar. Turnout was solid, bunch of good battles and the weather was amazing. All things I expect again this year.

SRS is going Indoor so it might be lot of local racers last chance to run on that type of super high bite surface which seems to be the new standard for big outdoor races. Then they'll go indoor and we can all run the same set of tires for 3 months and have 2 awesome indoor facilities here in the valley again.



Just my 2 cents.

States isn't cactus so tires shouldn't be an issue. I was easily getting 2 almost 3 runs out of my rears and that was a week long event.

Rumor is the whole area including track will become apartments of some sort.
