I'll reserve judgement until I have a chance to run on the track, but the area after the donut on this track has a history of being a bit tricky, especially on the inner lanes.  It's never been one you can hammer, so if you are used to kings where the lead-on is jacked up, you'll have trouble.

I was very pleased with the overall setup of the track.  All I am suggesting is to spend a few minutes on the area after the donut to smooth the transition then a good track will become a great track for many years to come.

I wish them nothing but the best in that regard.

I was very pleased with the overall setup of the track, so dont get me wrong. All I am suggesting is to spend a fee more minutes on that area to smooth the transition

Then a good track will become a great track got many years to come.

The flat lead on gives a bit of challenge to driving that track . There is no challenge to running a punch bowl. 

A good driver learns to adapt..

Yes, we all want to see a successful operation at the reborn Speedy's Fast Lane.  I recall many very good times racing on the LTD at their former location several years ago.  That track had its own "character", including the uphill bend that promoted caution because getting air at the top resulted in your coming down in the next lane over.  And I recommend caution while racing on the Ogilvie Orange at Northeast, paying particular attention to the transition from the donut to the esses.  It's a hell of thing to get set up for.  The ability to get through there at speed is what is generally referred to as "local knowledge."   A good 1:1 example is Dan Gurney at the old Riverside Raceway.
