track looked ok, but it seemed like a big dust bowl because of all the crappy access roads around the track when I went out there last year with Jack

what video

I have no idea what you're talking about. That's my story and I'm sticking to it....

If a certain rider and owner of the action wants to do it then he's more than welcome to share

I will be there for three days. The track will be a little dusty in the first session but it clears off. They have a nice street sweeper just like Barber they sweep with in the morning. The new road may be in by then, which will take care of this problem. I love this track the only bad part is that there is no elevation change, but it is very technical and fast.

This track has lots of run room everywhere and a nice long front straight like RA. The facility is first rate just like barber is just no tree’s.

Give it a try you won't be disappointed with the trip. I drive 5hr to get there and I am there 7 times a year. Blackhawk is only 1.5 hr for me and I only go there 1 or 2 a year if this tells you anything.

Its definitely a sweet track, and the showers are real nice...but I can't do that trip twice. So dam boring its unbearable. If I recall correctly, its further than Beaver and almost as far as Barber. No thanks. If you have an RV...maybe.

MAM is canceled. They are having a drag race that same weekend and said it would be too much for them administratively.
