Do you guys want me to book another track day at BLKHWKS later in the year

i can do a couple things i guess, (to make myself in a business sense) to set myself up as some kind of race track going thing a majig business...which means i can save us some money with blackhawks. over the cost we usually get for non licensed racers/goers.

what do you guys think?

i know if i book another i can probably work some kind of deal out maybe be a coulple bucks cheaper too. and so on and so on. for mutil track dates.

and since its close..its almost worth the 30 bucks more cause its close..saves trailer rentals, hotel rooms, bar tabs, hookers...etc.

I would be up for more dates at BHF, but Gingerman isn't that far and it would be about the same price as BHF. Also, Grattan my be far for some, but in my opinion, it is worth it. I firmly believe that you could get an easy 30 riders to commit to Grattan. Also, most of us have enough tents to camp everyone or the Candlestone Inn is cheap and 8 min. from the track.

Hmm,

Gratten? John described that as 'designed by the devil' Great. Now I REALLY want to try that track.

Barber? Tough finding 30 of us for that one though

I'd be up for any track. Anytime.

I'd love another track day. Don't even care where/when. Since the group prices are competitive with NESBA (perhaps even better?) it would save me the membership fee! ...sorry NESBA, but if you can only afford a few trackdays a year, KRS (Ken's Racing School) is a much better deal!

Thanks Ken. Good luck!

STT would work for you as well. Only $25 to join them. Heard good things about how structured their beginner group is. They also do some of the tracks that NESBA doesn't usually hit.

If you wanna go in drag, you can get $75 track days!

I agree. Blackhawk again. July or Sept. = Good.

August = Bad
