HPT Grand Prix CX Race

Curious if anyone is going or is familiar with the course. I'm driving out to Boulder and should be in the area Saturday afternoon. I'm considering breaking up the drive by going to this and spending the night in Topeka. Did anyone race last year? Racing at night under stadium lights sounds like fun.

No sir. My trip actually got pushed back, and I should be heading out Wednesday morning. How was the course?

It was awesome racing under the lights. Everyone kept telling me how cool of a race it was and it lived up to all the hype.
They used the dirt oval for a couple of long power straights and the infield for the more technical stuff. Then there were stairs that took you over the retaining wall and onto some off camber grassy area and then up a mushy false flat. The course flowed really well and once you got your lines dialed in, it was FAST!
