STT is running Gingerman in May I think. But I know it was Gingerman because I want to run it with them. My only advice would be to not do it on a Sunday. I did Gingerman w/ NESBA last year and due to a town ordinance, they had to shut the track down from 10-11:30 for church services.

Yeah, Andy George rented it out last year or it was Bob Miller. Anyway, the cost is similar to Blackhawk due to them including charging you for insurance. Grattan doesn't do it. Rather, they have you sign a waiver and it keeps the cost down.

I like the track even though I never completed a track day there (crashed). It's a nice in between of BHF and Grattan. It has some slight elevation changes, double apex turns and 2 short straights. Fun times!
