Nice Bro - That track is INSANE - Gives you a whole new perspective on the Pros huh? - Guys like us coast down those Ski Hills and to think the pros are in 3rd and 4th PINNED going down those things - Balls the size of Africa

yes, exactly, the big hill is a little scary going down , and they watered it every day more than once, I only went because 3 old friends from philly were going for their business and had a vendor booth and camper at the track all weekend, good times its been a few years since I have done a so cal GP style race , there were several big name pros there, josh grant, jake Anderson, Sebastian tortelli, ron the machine, jeff ward jr
