That's nice.
Myla paid for my very first TD as well
She couldn't believe by the way my knee pucks were all shaved by riding the country roads and I couldn't believe how easy are the requirements and how cheap it it.
Well, I caught the track bug...
That's a keeper buddy!

My girl got me a trackday also (well, an IOU, so I need to decide which org)
Waiting for the schedules to see what org, track, and when.

I've been on GSS a couple times (car and parade laps)... so it isn't very intimidating.
TWS (Texas World Speedway) seems like it might be easier on the legs (not that I'm REALLY out of shape... but it's my 1st trackday)
No input on MSR, but just doesn't seem really noob friendly.

I vote msrh, TWS (Texas World Speedway) is a very fast track for a beginner.

I honestly hate TWS (Texas World Speedway)... I can never seem to get comfortable out there or find the fast line even with someone showing me. I sort of just struggle out there..
