Back form Gateway.

What a crappy track. For a MULTI MILLION DOLLAR Nascrap facility they didnt see fit to have showers? Oh you have to go to the truck stop across the street and pay $8 for a shower? F-that. Had to sleep in my truck at the truckstop since they wouldnt let people in thursday night. Then they only had the gate to get in to get your wristband open for so long. The consession stand was only open from 11-1. Purely pathetic. Track layout was interesting though. Too bad its not safe. Hated the chicane. Even at the speeds I was going it bucked the bike. I cant imagine what Dano's bike did going through it.

Ya Jessie was there...He was flying...running some high 6s and 7s.

This was my first time there I thought the track was pretty cool. The infield is awesome! It has a cool flow to it.
The track isn't SAFE!! So don't crash there . I got on pace by sunday. Ran some high 8s not bad I guess. With some more seat time, set up, and new tires I'm sure that I can get down to the 7s maybe even 6s chasing Jessie..lol
It was good to see a new track.

Ya it's pretty dumb! You can go pretty fast thru it tho. If you take the right line thru it the transition isn't too bad.
