John, glad you liked our local track. While I have only been to a half
dozen or so others, I must say that I agree with you. Wait till you drive
it. I have never been on another track that is always maintained to
perfection. Never any excuses.
Mario Andretti calls RA his favorite track in the whole world. An
endorsement like that from a guy who has raced at every world-class track
there is says it all.
Any of you guys hesitating to come to the Midget 50th need to get your
priorities straight and be there. You will not be disappointed.
P.S. John, you could do worse than having Ron tutor you on the track. He
has really been coming around as a driver. Ron, now don't get a big head.
