Nov 2nd is like a meet and greet. We'd get a chance to see how the track will be laid out. I want to at least go and take some pictures. Talk to steve about how drifting will have a place there. It's such a good opportunity to have another venue. Can't pass it up.

I can probably just show up with the drift car in row just because.

I'm serious in attending.
Sway is like a race horse; if you push it sometimes, it's ok, but if you are hard on it all the time, then it's going to break its ankle and then you will have to shoot it.

There's no pavement to drift on though. But ok.

Did you show up sway? I volunteered. Man that blew lol. So many people. I wound up manning a raffle booth and handing out T shirts. Luckily I got one. They ran out fast. Odd how XL and 3xl were the first two sizes to run out. I was amazed at how many people don't have email addresses. Some people also forgot to take the bottom of their raffle stub.

Anywho, so what I do know is that the oval is fully paved on the infield with 2 entrances (4/10 mile oval). They aren't sure about if they are going to put garages in the middle. I kinda doubt it and asked not to lol. Regardless, there's a skid pad area that's flat and bigger than the infield anyway. Even if THAT is taken up, we have the road course. Which doesn't look super drift friendly to me (see fb pix). BUT BUT BUT. they have a go kart track there too. I figure, we have at least 4 possible places to slide. The track was very open to it too.

So far, they start killing trees Monday. They can't clear it all out. Something about native american artifacts (I'm serious...). If the winter is dry and they make headway, there is a MAYBE possible soft opening late next year. I would bank on the track being open spring 2015. Which kinda sucks but that's what happens when politics gets involved.

The track is at exit 118 off 95. It's ~1 hour drive for me. Cops all over but my drive down there was 75-80mph the whole way. I'm excited for the opening. This should be an awesome track.
