It looks almost as narrow as the old track. And the old one was super tight. How wide are the lanes?

The lanes are veerrryyy wide... Please realize that all the pipe on the track is not staked in and most of it is just laying there, but the smallest lane on the entire track is 12 feet and most of the track is 15'+

Track looks nice! Had to hit the replay button like 15 times. Man I hope I can get there on the 10th. Depending on how many people show, my skill level puts me right about finishing in the top 3 in the b-main. Bump up or take the money... hmmm I can't get enough track time so I'll be going for it.

Jus a suggestion but what if u guys started a drivers list on here with class n transponder # so it speeds up the sign up process that morning for u guys?? N then u jus check off the names of guys as they pay that morn. Cuz u guys bein racers yourselves know how money races brings everybody out the wazoo.
