Local Trackday providers

I'm new to the area, and looking for a listing of area trackday providers.

Within a 300 mile radius of Chicagoland.

Thanks!

See the sub-forums, those are most of them.

STT
Moto-Vid
Midwest Trackday
JOS

those are the ones around here, I'm sure others will add. Road America has a group, there are a couple down by Indinapolis. Brainerd has a group.

www.roadracingworld.com usually has a big list of trackdays around the country.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I did the Midwest Track Day weekend at Blackhawk this past weekend and I have nothing but good things to say about it.
Jeff is a really cool guy and its a shame so little people attended the event.
I had the track wide open all day and it was awesome.
I think he just needs some help getting the name out there.
I am already signed up for the next Blackhawk weekend and am thinking about trying Putnam for the first time with them.

I think he would have had more had it not been for the conditions.

Although this is normal weather this time of year at Blackhawk. Too early for a good TD.
