    There is racing tomorrow night and next Tuesday and Wednesday nights, then that is the end of the racing season. I'd suggest that you come and watch and see the fun before the season ends.

    The thing about shorter tracks with steep banking is that slamming into the curves scrubs off speed. So there's a lot of re-acceleration going on. I think that steady-state efforts might be better...
