Impressive(driving too..)
that track is nuts! It's like you pull out of the pits onto the back straight of Indianapolis. Is there even any dirt?

Maifield visited it earlier in the year and spun some laps with a borrowed buggy. I'd love to go there, but it's probably a good 4-5 hours away I think..

Here's a clip of Maifield there..:

(Sorry, that's way off topic.. But he's about the only driver who I really like to watch.. It IS an awesome track too..)

Reds is Mario's company. He has various companies (formerly LM, now Picco) build the engines to his specs. Then he and his son, modify them from there.

Thanks Jason. Yes, I have been working on this for quite some time. I am excited about working with the Rossi family. Very good people. Official press release should be hitting the net tomorrow.
