I liked the SD track, I raced there for their end of the summer bash. I don't know if the pit tables would support the JBRL crowd, as they are limited. It is closer to my house than Bfield is, so I'm all for it.

It was pretty fun, except I didn't like the no straight part of it, along with where the straight SHOULD have been, there was the double double that was hard to see when the sun went down. That's how I lost the lead is that I couldn't tell where the landing began, and in stock truck, you needed to land it near-perfect.

Yeah, definitely not a stock friendly track. I think was the worst track of the circuit . The dirt was the best part of the track . The layout was very technical wich makes it fun but when there is no area to just chill for a second it gets pretty annoying . The track got very hard to see for the a-mains with the sun and the way the jumps were facing but whatever. It was racing so it was fun . Does anyone know if there is another spot to find race results than Jimmy's site?

Santee would be cool next year. As long as the facility can handle 250 racers, its all good...

Well, finally the Current Points are posted after showtime. It seems like the actual results dont come up until the next race of the series. . Is everyone coming to HRH for the final one? It should be huge because the Reedy race is a week or a just a couple weeks after it. It should be a good time and we should all have some more comp.

Are you guys talking about the Family Hobbies San Diego track? I will start racing there pretty soon. Do you have any gearing tips or setup tips there for stock?
