I think the track will better suit some of the old school guys like Tebo and Maifield, especially in buggy. Truggy I think It will be Lutz or Bornhorst.

Maifield looked to be handling the track well. I'm pulling for Lutz though

I think its funny that some of the Cali guys are already beginning to complain about the track. Sorry sweetheart, this is not your super glued high traction BS track you're used to. Our tracks in the midwest get rough, dusty, loamy, and actually test the drivers race craft.

Its going to be interesting for sure are they allowed do do any maintenance on the track? Also that section with the small berm is different never seen a section like that before.

Just curious what tracks in Cali are super glued high traction. The tracks in SoCal that I know of are far from glued.

Which Socal track would that be? The only issue I see with the NATS track is once the jump faces erode, some of the jumps will become impossible. Some are sketchy already. But thats a part of the game. The top guys will be there. They always are.

Judging by the seeding round results it appears no one driver has a clear advantage. Tessman is doing well. Maybe he's figured out the X-ray??
