Agreed up to a point. Those of us who track on a regular basis know that $100 is an incredible deal, and the $130 we were originally quoted would have been as well. We know that $250 is a normal price for a day on track. We want to open up what we experience to as many people as possible, so we need to cap at $200 max and the closer to $150 we can get the better.

East Coast or BUST!

Sergio and I are in talks about taking the farthest driven award next year hauling his SE-R and bringing that award back to the West Coast . So by all means, the more miles farther away from Cali, the better.

I dare ya

Some of these tracks will offer a drag strip, huge skidpad areas, along with a road course, and also covered garages. Some of those even have air compressors and electrical outlets out the wazoo.

Picking and choosing a track is indeed a difficult task but if one would encompass all of these things, $250 is a steal.

Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas I believe offers all of those things if I recall correctly but I do not know of a price for that place.

The issue isn't only the individual price, but also if we have to front the money. No matter what people say... Fronting the money isn't going to happen. It has been proven many times to fail.

As much as I would love to have the convention in KS, looking at the Omaha convention tells me that the midwest is just too far to travel for the majority of people.

I think the KS people can organize a convention, but it would depend on how many people want to travel out here..probably not that many. I'd be up for it though. The lack of organizers wouldn't be a problem.

I really like the idea of a Milwaukee Based Convention as you have Blackhawk Farms within an hour and a half, and great lakes dragaway within an hour. Milwaukee also has a lot of things to do by the lake, brewery tours, et al. Hell people could drive to Chicago from Milwaukee in a little over an hour.

The major hurdle is location as it does start to become a long haul for a lot of people. I am worried with Ohio being this year MKE might need to be in 2 years to keep it spread out... granted I am fully up for the challenge of planning the event and have even begun track discussions just to have finite details in the event it proves to be a viable location.

I have tried emailing Summit Point on Sunday evening and they have not replied. Next week, I will call them. I understand a committee or something is being setup but any news is helpful.

I will say one thing. It won't be an issue to convince Katie that we need to take some time off and drive to the next one. She is fully on board now and is really glad to have met so many nice people.
