Paving the racing surface... or the pit area??

This is great news!!!  WOOHOO!

Is it April yet???
This is the e-mail I got.

Hi,

As you read this, repaving of the track is in process.  Hopefully, I will be able to upload some pictures of the process onto the website (no promises, but I’ll try)

Hope you have a great winter!
Nancy Irwin

Craig... Since you seem to have a "gift", can I send you my "wish list"? ;)

Reminder to all my mid-west compadres, cars run there before us, that means you will find torn up spots right away between the new b-top stripes!!!
Be careful w/your excitement, in 92' or 93' when they changed turn 3 into 3a, 3b, and 3c and we finally raced on the new surface, it was so torn up from the cars they already had patched it up a couple of times.

Well, hopefully they will use a more durable surface this time.  They run cars on Putnam all the time and they don't tear up that surface.

Speaking of Gateway, our primary contact there thinks there is a chance they will at least repave the entrance to the straight to eliminate the big transition bump.  I'll post if I hear anything definite.

So, anything else you want Craig???

Craig:

If you find a lead on one of those jobs, let us know.  We are looking for the same thing!
