Why is there no grass track racing in the US. How bout somebody who actually knows people, set something like this up in Chicago. I would but I have no friends. Well let me know when this going to go down.

Whats the history of this? It seems like they would borrow some of the same grasses they use on a golf course, maybe bent grass to make the surface sufficiently smooth. Shaggy heavy grass would make the whole process painful.

yeah, i've looked at a few soccer fields around town but they are all to bumpy to ride.
maybe a midnight race at the golf course.
