Yeah I know the owner and the mechanics there. Have know them and ridden with then for a long time. Got Marty (owner) hooked on riding on the track by switching him over from a GSXR to SV 650's

Alos I spent alot of my childhood in that area as my cousins grew up on Marquette about 1/2mile east of Cicero 6 houses east of the RR tracks
