I was thi king about it and might end up out there. I have a few meetings that day and still need to find some time to clean my air filter and change my oil. Maybe you'll get lucky and the over/under on the night track will be finished.

It definitely wasn't up on Sat.. in fact, I thought it was quite comical that they had a board just stuck to the side of it.. like.. "yep, that looks good there".. I know it probably served functionally though.

LOL, I thought that was comical as well. Apparently all of the rain was eroding the dirt right there on the landing. It sucks because that was the coolest part of the track. They did tell me last Friday that they had planned on fixing it in the next week or two.

Yep, they're redoing it. The plan was to eventually move the launch back a couple more feet, but I'm not sure if the plan is to just fix the erosion problem now or if they'll just move the ramp and fix the erosion at the same time. I know I can't be the only one that asks them about that every time I go out there, lol.

Well it's been pretty good so far, taking an extended break. I'm wearing a blue pink and white axo jersey and have a Honda with ebr graphics and a white f-150. I'm parked under the awning on the opposite end of the bathrooms. Come by and say hi if you're here.

Any day leaving the dirt in one piece is a good day. I may try to make it by there tomorrow if by some chance it doesn't rain too much.
