I'm not going to spend $140 to go to a small track with hardly any accomodations. No power in the pits??? I'll spend a bit extra and go to MSR-H thanks.

There are too many options to not offer a finished product.

The only thing you (may) need power for is tire warmers (if you have them)...

And that's only in the first sessions of the day...

Certainly, you should exercise your right to stay home. Nobody should feel like they are made to come out.

We'll miss seeing you there.
