The track really is awesome! They even have a huge air conditioned pit room. They will also, I'm sure, tear the indoor off-road track down to have more pit space. When they hosted the Fuel Nats (outside race) most of the Factory guys pitted in that off-road area.

I would like to completely selfishly and biasedly make a public request to the race organizers that the whole race conform to MY schedule, and I would like the race to begin earlier in the summer as I have summers off, and later in August is back to work time.

Thank you for your consideration. Looking forward to this race!!!
