they said it couldn't be done, but behold, the layout is SIX LANES DEEP!!! 3/4 long straight on the front, full length straight on the back, then a bunch of fun stuff in between. The rain this weekend helped pack the jumps, but it also brought to the top the sandy sediment that was laid on the track during the floods last season. The track was draged again on Mon, and some hand grooming was started. One more day of hand grooming and its ready for the pipe to be laid down.

Default new covered pit area

having a tall driverstand is a great asset to any track, being located in a public park and having to comply w/ ADA requirements means we have to build this

Practice starts when the sun comes up. Signups start at 10 and racing starts at 11-11:30. That will depend on the number of racers we get.
