Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

Wow, what a track. My skirt kept flying up in my face all weekend.

The corners are so ridiculously fast and the track is so grippy it is just mind boggling.

Easily the best track in America. I'm considering moving to Utah.

The track was an absolute blast! And with a ratio of only 1 or 2 riders per control rider, it was instruction all day long. Wink, Dustin, Tom Larson, Brent and all the other control rider( i'm forgetting a couple names) worked their butts off all day long with us. They helped me to improve lines, body position, and twisting the throttle all weekend long. THANKS GUYS!!! The Larsons helped host another awesome BBQ. Wink had the 'lemonade'. Remind me next time to stay away from that stuff. Weather was 90 both days, and I only missed the last session on Monday because of the rain moving in. Cant wait to start seeing some pics from the photographer, and others.
This track is will be on my list for next year for sure!

Here is a video of the track for those of you that are interested in what it looks like. SportBikerChic (CR from MidAtantic) made this video.

By the way, if you are at work, turn the sound off, the background music is NWS.

Ok, Mary made me a work safe version so that I can show my daughters, THIS IS IT

Hey Wink, did any of the photos that the wifes were taking with your camera come out good. I am getting impatient waiting on 'Bones'. Thanks

Yes, I have quite a few of them. Not the best, but better than nothing. I'll look tomorrow for some of you.
