Did they repave it? It can be run at 90% with only some drama. But going all out there?
If they would repave it, I would LOVE this track.

You haven't crashed on the seamed mess.

My worst crash as far as bike damage was on that track. I'll go ride it whenever you want biotch. I like it. Just would love it if it was repaved. But hey, the car guys don't complain.

WERA endurance 2011?

How much is a transponder? I forgot about that. What are they 400 bucks?.

They are the same transponders for WERA, AMA and AHRMA though right? I think CCS is trying to go with the same ones.

they usually pop up for around $250-$300 used. CCS isn't using them in 2011, maybe 2012. i'm pretty sure they're all the same ones.

The new section of track that they added this year is awesome. The last turn from the back to the front straight was changed but its still a little sketchy, worse than T10 at Putnam. Could get interesting under race conditions. I used to dislike the seams but noticed them less this year.

The seams are like the Easter Bunny...
They only exist, if you believe they exist.
