Talking How to get to BHF

Well since I am new to the area and have not been to BHF yet I figured I would try to get directions. I am coming from Dekalb.

Thanks.

well i know if you get off on the rockton exit, go towards rockton, once you go threw town, right after the last stop sign, there will be a MILD winding rd, make the right hand turn after the 3rd little water bridge, there will be a sign ON THE LEFT saying make a right turn to go to blackhawk farms raceway.

once you go that rd, maybe a mile youll see it on your left.

take 88 to 39N then 90 to Rockton rd. take a left go thru town, turn right at the silo , go thru the next intersection and look for the track on the left.

This is gonna hurt!

Or you can take the round about way. Take I94 to milwaukee, I94 to madison, I90 to lacross. Head south on I35 until you hit I80, then head east on I80 until you get to I39. Then north on I 39 to HWY 20. West on hwy 20 then north on hwy 2. Then follow the signs. D BTW you might wanna leave NOW if you take my directions.

Seriously the easy way.

Take Rockton Rd exit from I90/39 head west (right after toll booth)
Follow until you get to a T-intersection (HWY 2 aka Blackhawk Blvd)
Turn RIGHT (north) on HWY 2.
Turn LEFT (west) on Prairie Hill Rd (at stoplight. Wendy's and Mc D's are on your right)
Cross teh bridge and you hit another T-intersection. Thats S. Bluff Rd
Turn Left on S. Bluff (theres also yellow signs there for BHF. with arrows).
Then take the first RIGHT (Yale Bridge RD.)
Come to a 4 way stop then take a RIGHT (Prairie Rd).
About half a mile up on your left is a row of 15' pines and a sign that says Blackhawk Farms. Turn in there. Thats the driveway to the track which is about 1 mile off the road. Theres an old blueish farm house right across from the entrance.

Just a warning, watch your speed in this area especially when theres sanctioned races. Cops have been know to be all over the area.

In the pic below, follow the pink line. The green star is BHF. This route I like sicne you dont have to go through town.

If you drop by as a spectator at a Nesba day is there a entrance fee?

I thinking about stopping in sometime, just want to know how much $$ to bring.

Thanks.
