Jackson track day this Sunday

Michigan Supermoto is having another test/track day at the track in Jackson this Sunday.
If you haven't been there, it's 1/2 go cart track, 1/2 dirt with medium sized jumps.
No noise restrictions and no sharing track with carts.
Jackson is about 3 hrs from Chicago and the fee is $40 for the whole day.
If you don't have anything going on, you should come ride with me.

Well he does have those riding doggles.... I did kinda see him checkin' out track suits on the Interweb the other day.... I better keep an eye on my checkbook and hide it when Im away from the house.

Hmmmmm, I might be in for this. Cheaper than racing, a little closer and more seat time too.

Yeah this is bad timing. I would be up for some carpool action another time. Sunday is my daughters 3rd Birthday.

June 1

Check the calendar on the web page man. The MISupermoto dates have been up since they announced them.

don't forget to support the WI tracks too, as well as Springfield!

even if you don't want to race, Road America and springfield both have trackdays, and are closer than Jackson. Shawano is about the same distance (for me at least).
