    Trackcrafters was the track day org. in charge of the FRIDAY ( 5/8 th ) practice.

    Just got an email saying they're cancelling ( "due to the economy"...:down: ).

    Is Friday 's gonna be a WERA "exclusive" like in Vegas / april.. ??

    Or: is another track day org. running friday ..?

    Or: friday's axed .. ?

    Mongo ?

    I have not idea sorry. We're not running a practice day Friday and I doubt the track will do one but they'd be the ones to contact to be sure.

    Just not enough racers running on Fridays to justify it.

    I'm not too worried.

    I've got some decent seat time on that track.

    Solo : dunno...that's another $ 85 and a rear tyre.

    And practice isn't a rear tire and even more than $85? :headscratch:

    I hope the track is open for arrivals on Friday... Guess I'll call and find out... I was looking forward to arriving around noon, setting up, and enjoying watching my friends pract.... but with no pract.... oh boy...

    Yes, you can camp there. No WERA Friday practice. Lots of good contingency for this event!

    Post up if we can arrive Friday.

    I'd like to get there Friday night and practice Sat morn., run my first ever solo Sat. afternoon, practice Sunday morn., and race Sunday afternoon.

    That should be sufficient track time.

    I have never been to Button before and plan to enter more classes than usual so i can get up to speed quickly.

    Mongo: When will the schedule be posted?

    This week. It'll be Vegas with the practice sessions rotated one and then on Sunday the A and B columns will be rotated. I also may put F2 between C and Senior Superbike.

    Yes sir, I tested them last year....:)

    They're on the side of the restrooms buildings east and west.

    Don't drop the soap, you're on your own....and in the open....no door

    or curtain.....:moon:...:moon:

    at least it does not smell ass.
