I've been waiting for this race to show up on the calendar. I went last year and had a blast until my servo took a sh&$. Look forward to running up there again this year. Last year we had 4 from Texas make the trip. This year I bet we double that amount. See you guys in July!! Thanks Paolo for posting this update.

for such a facility to only have 1 nitro onroad event for the year is just wrong IMO.

I had a great time at this race last year as well! Great track, great facility, great competition, and the event was ran very well by the powers to be!

Thanks for posting up Paolo!

Rick - did you convert the mugen? Get rid of the TeamC? or go with the Cobra? Can't wait to see you & JJ again this year!

Well worth the drive from Texas!

ok.....3 months for me to think about where you should buy me the steak dinner, this time, I will pick the nice one in downtown CHICAGO.

Don't forget the NOVA ROSSI package for me. I don't really need it but I don't mind to use it since I have to beat you.....the 3rd or 4th time.

So glad it is the END of the month instead of the beginning of the month...I AM IN.

This is always a great race. Guess I need to start looking for a Cobra.

I have to agree. I still remember the crapstorm over last years Midwest series event, and now apparently Joliet pulled out of it for this year. I hope everyone that attends this race has a good time and enjoys themselves, but I can't see attending a track that isn't supporting the series.
