Brainerd is a really good track. NHRA drag strip and road course is pretty good as well. But like you said it is too far northwest.

How about that? And it's not far at all from:

Is that road course even operational yet?

As far as I know. It was supposed to be finished back in like 2009. 99.9% sure it's open. I contacted them to get a price for track rental...I'm sure it's outrageous.

Yeah, in the 10 minutes I spent browsing through the website, and then searching on Google, I couldn't find any reference to current activity.

I'll know something later today hopefully. Then again if they're slow maybe we can get it cheap! lmao

I don't think so. From what I've read, they've had legal issues, EPA issues, money issues etc. etc. Even if it was up and running, my guess is the cost of admission is going to blow us out of the water.

Agreed with the majority.

Granted I had no additional drivers to share the wheel, and I'm getting old. However, I can assure you that two (2) back-to-back 551-mile days is a bitch. Let alone 600+ mile days back-to-back. Those last 100-miles each day being the worst, when you've already been on the road for 7-8 hours. Uhhggg. And I am in the fortunate position where I can take as much travel time as I like. Most folks would have to be asking for additional days off, just to have enough time to drive that distance.

In the future, as stated on the Questionnaire, anything over 900-1,000 miles one-way, and I am flying.

Under 1,000-miles is still two (2) reasonably tolerable days of driving solo, or a banzai run straight-through for youngsters trading the wheel and sleeping in the passenger seat.

All these "Cali" posts should be deleted. We all know who's really coming from the west next year again. Driving, Towing, Flying, Train, I'll find a way to get there.

Now for these Cali kids, Like Gomba pointed out, a few of us are gonna see about organizing something out this way. sr20Minivention. Let's see if you can prove to us why the west should be considered again.

Raul, laying down the truth with authority and some heat.

Much respect sir.

Damn, you Cali OG's dropping the smack-down. Bravo my good man.

sr20Minivention as Optimum stated. Have a test-run. Maybe the freeloaders could put their money, time, and enthusiasm where there mouths are? ......
