    Welcome to D11 and welcome to PitRacer. We really appreciate track owners that give frequent updates on here. Thank you. I'm looking forward to having another track so close to Columbus and so well promoted.

    Ohio is still starved for prepped practice during the week. I've seen many tracks in the past get big turnouts by committing to this. The keys to success seems to be to pick a day and stick to it, prep it well, and promote it well. I'm not seeing many midweek options for 2011 so there's a market opportunity there for someone to jump on.

    Good luck with your season. It's my birthday Thursday so I'm taking a day off and can't think of a better place to spend the day than on a dirt bike in Chillitown!

    Chuck
     
  7. Update***we will be doing several give-a-ways throughout the day. Monster has sent over a large box full of swag for us to give out and we have other great items to give out too...working on Reds tickets if anyone is interested in those.

    I'm going to try to post some pics on here shortly. I'm getting ready to head out to the track now to snap a few pics and help the crew on track prep. Check back later.
     
  8. All of these photos were taken this evening. No rain outs for us...See ya tomorrow!

    Have you considered a reschedule in your first race date with the Fast Traxx llq. being moved to the same weekend? Is there any charge for camping other than gate fees? I assume there will be for water and electric hookups, how about self contained units?

    You got it Sharc! Willy, Gibson, Willard all showed up and layed it down. What a day and what a facility! They probably have 600 RV hookups. 20 track workers for a Thursday practice. Concessions. A prepped track. A lot of potential here for a national presence. The jump faces held up all day. They were designed to be safe and challenging. An 80 foot table finish with a hump in front that robbed all your momentum for example. Lots of fun.

    All that land man I wish you guys would build 4 of those tracks and hook them all together. I can envision RV's coming in from 5 neighboring states and spending the weekend. You already have the starting gate for it:) Don't blend in with all the other D11 tracks, set a new standard and pull D11 up.

    You guys will get the prep figured out. Just soak it to death the night before. It'll last. However please don't water hard packed mid-day without running a disc, especially on the faces and landings....or at least make the crazy guy with the hose run the first lap. Also I'd split up big bikes as AB and C and just throw the quads in as big bikes unless you get 20 of em show up. Saw some fast kids on 150R's and 85's running minis. I'd bump them up to big bikes.

    Keep up the incredible work you've done so far. I hope you have a great season.
