we are very close to the Lincoln airport. But, it might be cheaper to fly to Epply in Omaha and drive to Lincoln. Only an hour drive from Omaha to Lincoln.

This is a fun track with a great group of guys!
Happy to call this my home track even though it's a 4hr drive for me.
Normally a good showing in all classes.

There is some power available but bring an extension cord.
Easy-ups and generators are common on race weekends.

See ya there!
-Jon

Had a blast at this race last year. Their hospitality was great for this out-of-towner that drove a long way to get there. The track was smooth and consistent. Marking my calendar for a possible return trip (if work doesn't get in the way).

Thanks,

It does seem about 200$ cheaper to fly to omaha. I will put this on my race calender.

Going to try to make the return trip, pending work or any other issue. The Golf TDI is raring to make the one tank trip there (625 to 640 miles from Dallas). Only spent $100 for diesel for that round trip last year.

Doing some early research here for next year:

How do you guys feel about having a 1/8 pan car run with another class? I don't mind running with 4WD or GT8. My lap times would be closer to GT8 than 4WD.

Also, is anyone going to be running 1/10 pan?

Hey,

If anyone around the Quad Cities, Iowa are looking to get to this race drop me a line.

Regards

I would think it would be better suited to running with the 4wd guys. it would be way too easy to "scoop" a GT8 car.
