Default 2016 Heart of America Championship Series

After a bit of delay, not totally my fault, here is the schedule.

April 30-May 1
May 28-29 (double points)
June 18-19
July 9-10
July 30-31
August 20-21

About how long would you say the straight section is? I got a new car and trying to decide what gearing to start with.

Track will be new to me as well in 2016. I used the distance tool on Google earth. Depends on where you measure, but it gives you a pretty good idea.

If there is enough interest in doing open mod, I would consider bringing my electric touring car as well.

bob block was telling me about some new and Rubens that sounds kind of cool.

Hey guys. This coming weekend, April 2 and 3, we will be doing some work at the track.

Saturday, starting at 10, we will be painting both buildings, repairing of rebuilding railings, painting putter track boards, painting the white line and red corners. With enough help, we should be able to get this done in one day. If not, we can finish up on Sunday.

Thanks and N advance to all who make it out to get things ready for the 2016 season.

For those who could not make it today to work at the track, you are in luck!! We will be there tomorrow at noon. We will be rebuilding the railings on the driver's stand.

Looks awesome, Kyle!

Yeah, I'm anxious to get out on the track and test the new racing surface. I've got a few different tires to test out. Also, need to get the new car setup with shift points, suspension, etc.

sounds like we will have a good practice weekend than! I have the same set up I was running last year as far as tires and suspension. Hopefully we wont have to adjust too much. I stocked up on tires so I really hope they are the same required as last year. Your car looks awesome Vishal!
