It's funny I've been in the area for some time and have never really checked the street car side of things out. I've been dealing with drag race only cars for all that time and never thought about it. Now that I have a fun street and track car I'd like to check things out.
I will probably be attending the Grand Am race at Watkins Glen and I 'm looking for some track days to try turning corners instead of just going in a straight line. What else goes on in the area, cruises, shows, etc.?
I'd be interested in getting involved in some of these activities.

Welcome Rich! If you are interested in some good track time, I'm going to Gingerman Raceway July 19 for the Camaro5 sponsored HPDE track day! It sounds like a blast! It would be great to have someone to drive out and hang with from Upstate C5! Here's the link for the event: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=296683

Waterloo is still a go! We will meet at the Wal-Mart in Waterloo (actually they call it the Seneca Falls store) at 9 AM. See you all there.

Joe, did you happen to run into a couple of guys, Drew and Mike? Mike had a red GTO, Drew would have been in either a blue WS6 or an orange TBSS. They're buddies of mine who went up. Awesome numbers btw man

Wish I could have gone. Worked till 7 am this morning and I"m about to go back in.... bleh.
