Iowa, Whats Going in June and July?

What car shows and track days are coming up in your area? I am looking for some places to go over the next few weeks... I have a few weekends off and days during the week. Let me know what is out there and I may stop by and say Hi…
Thanks, Roy…

If you werent about 4 hours away, I would say come out to MAM (road track) in Pacific Junction IA on June 4th or 5th. Its a very good track and you would have a blast!! We try to go about once a month, if you are ever interested, let me know.

I am out on the 5th but I may be able to pull a few strings for the 4th. Are there things for kids to do? I will have 4 of my 5 girls with me. Do you have a web page or anywhere I can look for more information? Do I need anything special for MAM? Sounds like a blast...

The cost is usually $100 for the day or $75 for a half day. Starts at 8am and goes until 6pm. If you want to do an orientation day with the instructors, then it is $175 and they have them the first Friday of every month. They also have Fast Fridays every Friday during the summer. If you plan on going sometime, let me know as I would like to meet up with some more 5th gens out here.

This weekend is a special Nissan track event so it is only $125 for both days. You just need a helmet to run the track, should be a SA2000 or better helmet I believe. Here is the website to sign up for this event if you are interested.

That is Fridays Itinerary and you an click on registration to get in.

Looks like the wife and I are going to hit a few more shows than last year. The 69 SS is ready to go, she will be driving that. I will have the 2010, and the little ones. The 69 is not designed for two car seats... hope to see some of you out and about... Roy...
