Any of my "local" friends crashing track side Sat eve? I'm hauling my boys over and they both told me I should party... we'll crash in the suburban and bring a roll of Charmin but I had a blast last year w the Choizo/Issac/other folks and hoping for the same this year?

Just took a peek at the SRS facebook page,

New (Cactus) layout is in. Said it's fluffy, but they were racing. Hope all the locals get it grooved in that made it out to race.

Sadly no pics, but that just adds to the suspense of making the trip.

See everyone real soon.

Yes I did,

Though that back right corner section going on to the straight, seems pretty interesting running in that direction. Looks like it has a good flow though.

Guessing a 23-25 second lap time for most may be common

Default New track

That little hill might be an issue. it was soft last night and Ricky and the rest of the good folks at SRS worked hard compacting and surfacing it. With sugar it might be a non-issue.

The rest of the track is fun and you should be pretty close on the lap times. But with sugar who knows. Pros could be in low 20s.

Hope everyone has a wonderful time.

The little back hill? Yeah, I thought it might pose a small issue for guys. I almost thought it would work better running clockwise, but should be fun. Might be one spot that can make a lot of difference in lap times. I'm sure if it needed a little more packing in, the SRS guys will be on it. With more packing and sugar, some one will try to jump up on to the straight for sure.

Have no idea on the lap times, just guessing on my part. Pro's will for sure beat that, some of the top Stock guys will probably be close to it. Hard to say for sure.

That's how I took it to be.

If I'm wrong, hopefully someone will jump on and set me straight

Fastest lap on the first night was a 25.1 so wouldnt be surprised to see a 22 on sugar

I never thought I would see a cactus layout with no Mod lines whatsoever.
