What about Nashville Super Speedway ???   

Not much happening there since they lost their truck date ........  somewhat central location, lots of infrastructure at a reasonable cost.

Rumor has it that the Cup series is going back there in the near future and even read that they are entertaining going back to the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.  I went to a truck series race there in 1997 when I was living there and had a great time

This place looks interesting.  It's in EBF, but I believe there is lodging within a reasonable distance.  The homepage opening photo looks promising.   8)

Drove the track a year ago. Views are spectacular, but very little infrastructure. No big hotels nearby, but a cool track!

I enjoyed Sears Point/Sonoma last time around, lots to do, and the road racing and drag racing was fun.  First time I drag raced, and I quickly learned the car and driver needed a lot of dialing in drag race wise.  Get better soon Randy!

Fontana is fun but too expensive, but Sonoma with Nor-Cal is the best.  Plus I do not have to travel for day to get there! 8)

You mean you can walk to it from Honolulu or the catamaran goes right to it?  ::)

My vote is a track that does not cost as much to rent. So we do not have to share with SVRA. Wanting more track time.


You could simply sign up for all three run groups on both days to get more track time.

Back to Willow Springs. 2 tracks since we were last there. Lots of CS history. Put up a tent and have In-N-Out cater the dinner. No big hotels around but enough small ones. Or go to Buttonwillow where we've never been and use Bakersfield (35 minutes away) with a few big hotels.

The Glen would be amazing, still holding out that Indy will be rescheduled for later this year. FYI Cobra was to be the featured marque at the SVRA race at Indy, so SAAC's event would tie in perfectly.

It may be to late to get hotel rooms for that date but the "Glenn" is good. It was 104 the last time I was there.
