    Wow! I didn't see this on PA's website, thanks for the headsup!

    BTW; Aliquippa (the town it's in) is a crap-hole.

    The race isn't in the "crap hole". It is in a nice rural area off the freeway. I grew up in nearby Hopewell, and when J&L and the other steelmills went to the bottom of the pan so did the town.

    Ah, sorry about that. I raced in the industrial parkway near "downtown" and it looked like Detroit and post WWII France had spawned.
