I am going to try and go to the new track in Concord next Thursday ,if nothing happens. It's the first test and tune for the year.

I'll be there running my car. Hoping for a really good run on the nitrous and get yelled at, but it'll be worth it.

Track prep sucked pretty bad from what I understand. Few of my buddies were losing traction at and after half track. Damn street hooked up better from what I have been told.

Yeah bad track prep. I think they only prepped it once at the beginning and with all the street cars that were there with their street tires didn't help keep any rubber down either.

Overall it was exactly what I expected. Over 500 cars, 4 hours and only 2 runs. I think some people will be aggravated with all of it and not come out anymore so it will get better.

I was out there too. No traction problems for me though, my car is stock.

I thought the track sucked to. I did get a 12.94 pass but my car spun and it usually hooks. On my last pass it broke lose when it went to 3rd.

Wow, that is bad. Does it even do that on the street?

Lots of guys were breaking loose at the top end of the track, but not on the street, nice huh?
