    Made my first visit Saturday. I live 5 hours away, but was visiting my son and family about an hour away, so we decided to visit. What an awesome facility and track. The racing was fantastic and the track held up very well, something I am not always used to seeing at my regular tracks. Thanks for creating such a fan-friendly venue, and thanks to the sponsors that allowed admission to be so cheap. We really appreciated it, and will be back soon.
