I know I like seeing these threads for rounds I can’t make it to, I get to return the favor this time. Went for a walk and snapped some crappy pics with my cell phone.

Looks like they got rid of the S turn at the end of the whoops and it’s back to just a 180.

Here’s the “secret track”, or what’s left of it rather, at the top of the hill.

I don't know if it's the track or just the overall scenery but hands down the favorite national I have attended.

The s turn at the end of the whoops will probably be back for pro day, they've taken it out in the past on Thursday for amateur practice

Yeah, we’ll have to see. The S turn section was completely flattened and grown over and there’s an amateur race tomorrow so I’m not sure if they’ll move that much ground tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks for the great pic's...TV does no justice to the angle of the hill.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Friday morning .. I saw the radar, how screwed is Am day going to be?
I've been there when "Biblical" was appropriate and the track was rideable. So I'm not so worried about the track as I am the tenters and the camping gear.

The track can take a lot of rain and be ok in a few hours

Good. Those S corners sucked. Massively one lined and a great opportunity for a dog pile.

I helped push a couple guys out last night, but they were light, rear wheel drive vans. Not deep, just slick. Depending on when you get here, it should be fine with the sun being out today. I haven’t left my site yet this morning to see what the other lots look like yet, though, so take that how you will. grin

Also, no idea what kinda rig you have but if you have 4WD it wouldn’t be an issue I’d guess. I’m worried about leaving with my little low-clearance FWD car since Saturday it calls for possible showers. Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!

Also, I’ll try to update this thread with some more pics as the day goes on and the place fills up for you guys stuck at work on this awesome day!
