    Awesome. Thanks.

    By the way, maybe if you post the schedule of events for each particular night that would encourage those from far away to make the trip. Enduros would hate to show up on sprint night and sprinters would hate to show up on endurance night. But if guys knew that the races for a particular week were their type then they'd definitely go. That works well at DLV in Atlanta. Some folks only show up on Chariot Race night. Others only show up for the 10 Mile Scratch Race night.

    Good luck with this race series. It sounds like fun.
