Z,

The work shown in the pictures looks great!! We will try not to mark of the boards too much with our bad driving at times. Two and a half weeks to go before the big race!!

It's been along time since I've been there and I can't remember where we stayed back then.

Some of the KC and Minn guys stay at the Travel Lodge 1101 W. Bond, just north of the track. I've done this as well, plus the Super8 on CornHusker HWY (road the track is off) Reasonable priced and ok rooms. Travel Lodge has restaurant on site. Book Through Wyndam for best rates.

For the electric touring class, is there going to be a "spec" tire? If so, what brand?

Posted on the Nebraska thread - Sweep QTS-32n, which he sells sets of four for a reduced cost. Just let him know and he will make sure your covered.

Going to miss racing with you guys next week.
