Sounds like a good deal, but being so close to the rock n race I’m afraid I won’t be able to squeeze that in. It’s pretty hectic as it is for me that week.

Can't wait, should be fun! Looking forward to running down the track with everyone! I'm working with Paul on this so if anyone needs anything and can't get ahold of him, give me a buzz. I'll be counting on the Iowa boys to tell their buddies to pull their cars out there even if only for show and not GO. I'll be looking for ways to sweeten the pot so we are open to any suggestions.

I posted the wrong link to the aerial photo of the strip :doh

Here is the latest picture of the strip from their facebook site -they have made significant improvement's to the racer parking areas since this picture.
The track is now has lighting for night racing and I would guess some lights stay on all night.
The large concession/restroom building is air conditioned and faces the starting line. Track has had diamond grinding for a 1/4 mile length (but running 1/8 mile) The runway in the picture is 3500 feet long

This might be possible? I have a national show in Loveland Co Saturday 14th and I guess is possible to be there Sunday afternoon as its a 9 hour tow from Loveland.?
Be a good opportunity to see all you western gun slingers. My Daughter lives in the foothills of Boulder and was planning to stay there a week. I guess I could go out a week early. No way I could be there Saturday as typically we are released at 3:00 and I'm loaded by 4:00.
Any comments?

How well stocked is the parts department. :D
I'll bring some axles, bolts, U-joints, tow straps, jack............Wait, are we going off roading or drag racing? It all breaks the same!
Gear oil, transmission fluid, RVT, welder, grinder, plasma cutter, compressor is what I'm bringing. Figured I had good luck building a car at the track last time, might as well try it again! :laugh2
