I do appreciate the invite though...
Snow will not be the issue, just rain. It's more of a rain forrest up here in the Pacific Northwest. Portland weather will be about the same as Vancouver and Seattle. Still warm up here highs of 60+ lows 50's.

The runs start at 7:00 am, and will probably go all day... The best runs may be early that morning... I was thinking of leaving around 4:30 or 5:00 am from my house... Depends on if Debbie wants to go....

That's part of what I want to determine...

Pete, have you thought about approaching the guys building the formula one track and seeing if they are interested in building a two mile long stip of asphalt...or concrete... I believe there is room on the property and they could run 1/4 mile drag races most of the season and then host The Texas Mile...

I don't have the kind of contacts you do... and wouldn't know where to start... Austin has the support structure for something like this, and it could be a premier MotorSports Park...
