First races of 2012 for North Carolina

Anyone in the Carolinas, or Virginia, or Tennessee or Georgia, the first races of the year are in just over a week.

Here is a link to the flyer: http://www.usacycling.org/events/get...ermit=2012-387

The races are on a banked auto race track (It's like a minor league NASCAR track), meaning it is covered in all sorts of auto fluids, including motor oil. If it rains, the track becomes ridiculously slick and unsafe to race bicycles on. The local officials won't let us on there if it is raining.

My first races in the Carolinas will be the Greenville Training Series in the middle of February. The races in NC before that are in northern NC and too far of a drive for me.
