A big WELCOME to any that choose to stop out at the Lockport Practice track, aka Porter Raceway. Plenty of fast food close, Jewel and Walmart too if you need any grape soda for traction, lol.
The lot is not blacktopped yet, so it may chew up the drift tires a bit more than a garage. The adjacent lots are clear also, bring something to stand on for the drivers stand. No power, No lot lights. Very accommodating local law enforcement, just don't leave a bunch of garbage behind when you leave.

Added this post to the Lockport Track thread,

Hello to all the Chicago Drifters interested in racing at Porter Raceway.
The google map shows layout#1. Since then we have overlapped it with a green lined layout following the image here, http://db.tt/sxaMBhKk
You were right thinking that layout #1 has pretty wide lanes. In layout #2 we have reduced the lane width by 1/3 and this in turn increased the distance.
I am going to see which of the adjacent fields might be conducive to running some off road. Now that I have a Blitz, I can venture off the tarmac with a little less worry.
and I have a photo of the F1-09 at the starting block, http://db.tt/7Jb8zya5

This weekend seems a bit cool, so I am hitting it after work today. Got my X-Ray T2 '07, 3Racing F1-09 and HPI Blitz all loaded in the work van with a fresh LiPo in each. Anyone up for some laps after work?


See ya soon!
