Labor Day Weekend...where you going? STT/NESBA?

Just wondering where most of you are going. Labor day seems like a big weekend for track day riding with STT and NESBA.

Looking to see who is going where to figure out where I might have more fun

I've never ridden full track at ACC. I rode both sides. The one time I registered for full track, it rained all day FTML.

I'd love to hit ACC on Friday. Sadly, I'm swapping my bike back to street use for the rest of this year. Man I wish I made seven figures a year. Maybe I'll come out just to pose.

NESBA Chilli Cook-Off

From what I was told last weekend at the track, the proceeds from the cook-off will go the the "air fence". The air fence is what saved me last weekend, so I 110% support this event!!!

Ugh. I goofed. I just realized that this is in September. October is when all the "Cubbie blue" disappears.
