This is good news to see that TnL's onroad program will continue. Financial budget (ie,,,,,,,,,,,,,disposable income) has been a little skimpy this past winter and may continue for me for the unforseeable future, so not sure how frequently I will come to TnL to run. May have to keep my racing close to home but I enjoy you guys show. I will make it up there, just not sure how often.
