This was a great event! Only about 20 people showed up. I would highly recommend Checkered Flag Racing. The organizer was very friendly and everyone was courteous on track.

I spoke to the front office and they said the big track is closed for most of January because they're resurfacing it. So unless there was some miscommunication, it's happening.
By the way it's...

Just checked ebay. Those tires are expensive!

I've been running Federal RS-R's. $450 for a set of 285/18s. They're awesome on a cold day for a few laps, but it's hard to examine lap times and data...
