Funny you should ask - I'm on nesba & teampromo now looking at dates. Teampromotion wants to make the new nj motorsports park their home track. I'm at the office though and don't have my stinking login information so can't sigh up for any till later.

They say Summer '08. Clubs have already scheduled dates there. Knowing how any type of construction goes in NJ, I have a funny feeling things will not go as planned.
Not counting NJMP, I'll probably look at Summit Point & Beaverun for "close" tracks and choose between VIR and Calabogie for one far.

I don't see anything listed for NESBA for the new track did not renew for Team Promo yet so we'll have to wait and see when it opens.

The reg. ran out on your trailer, your dual-sport is no longer tagged, GEEZ!
You're falling apart up there!
Re-tag your dirtbike. Mill Hall ain't that far from you and their annual dualsport is top notch.

Parenting duties dictate: I only have every other weekend available & no Monday-Thursdays. Fridays are okay though.
I forgot about sportbiketracktime. I'll have a look.

Rat-lemme know what dates you pick. If I'm there I'll be riding in the beginner group but can look for you in between sessions.

Looking forward to getting back as much as I can. I have twins on the way so my forays to the track will have to be limited. Can't wait to try out NJ motorsports. A real road course within a few hours. Been riding converted ovals so long I think I forgot what these look like

we'll have to put together 'a gathering'...no doubt this track will draw some WT members out of the woodwork and up to the area

Yeah, Pocono is not the greatest......took a 20 lap ARCA run ther a few years back and I swear the car would catch air coming into the tunnel turn at about a buck 20....couldn't imagine hitting that expansion joint on a bike!

Yeah you go over that section on the north course. Your going stupid fast around the banking. Pocono could a bit more fun if they repave it and give you some more run-off. Oh yeah for god sakes fill in the ditches. I saw a guy run off the course in 5 on the east course. He hit this ditch and just ragdolled through the air right in front of me. Needless to say the he got an expensive helicopter tour of the Poconos. Come to think of it I have seen more Helicopters there than any other track I have been too.

Pocono is a death trap for bikes...I've seen at least one rider lose his life there. Matioli owns the joint and had it repaved about 6 or 7 years ago
(not very well I might add). but he's way to frigging cheap to do it again until a couple more people lose their lives.
