Which Midwest tracks allow passengers?

Anyone know what Midwest tracks allow passengers? I'm pretty sure BHF and Putnam don't, so I'd like to find one that does so I can give a friend a ride (and prolly scare the crap outta her).

Actually, how many of you guys have ridden on a track with a passenger, and is it just a plain bad idea to do it? (yes, I do have a full suit and helmet for my passenger, just missing a good set of boots.)

Might depend on the group and the track. In the Midwest I've seen it done at Road America, Gingerman, Mid Ohio, and Grattan.

Thanks... too bad all those tracks are a lot farther away than Blackhawk or Putnam.

I did Sport Bike Track Time a few times, but they said that it's up to the tracks whether or not they will actually allow it, I remember that they did not allow 2 up riding at Putnam.

Gingerman isn't that much further. Jack has a sweet pic he took of my and my x there, on my TLR.
