The Lemons sticker on the inside wall at turn 17 was put there after the 2013 F1 race during the track walk....i've heard.  No claiming GOOJF's for that one.

Re: 2018 Schedule Thread

Have a Left Coast Rally Race where you have to race at multiple tracks. You start at the Mexico border, drive to Buttonwillow, race six hours. Then on to Sonoma, race six hours, repeat at Thunderhill, PIR, ORP, Pacific Raceways, The Ridge, Dirtfish, wherever. Finish is at the Tim Hortons N of Sumas. ANARCHY!!!

I heard I rumor we are returning to the Detroit area and running a Flat Rock / Toledo Speedway 24 hour event for 2018!! At 10 pm on Saturday night, everyone has exactly 30 minutes to drive their (required street legal) race cars from Flat Rock down to Toledo where racing will resume promptly at 10:30pm.

Ya, I was really excited when I saw Buttonwillow Sept 30-Oct 1.  It looks like mid 90s this weekend.  Is it ever cool there?

I will bet you a beer that while it won't feel like you are walking on the face of the Sun, it will feel like you are on the sunny side of Mercury by mid day.

I wish we'd add VIR because it's close (2.5 hours) for us and it's an excellent facility.

Re: 2018 Schedule Thread

I read somewhere that the Glen has been poo-poo'd. VIR would be tits; It's still a haul for us but I really want to do a new track next year.

I'm still longing for the days of two NJMP's per year. Thunderbolt in the spring and Lightning in the fall!

Ask me about VIR next time you see me.

EDIT: Lemons understands it is a nice facility and proximate to many willing teams.

You have now cursed us.  Everyone prepare for an ice storm in April centered directly over Joliet, IL.
