Midwest Track Days

My buddy started a track day org and just helping get the word out. He currently was able to grab a bunch of NESBA control riders along with some other great riders from the area. He has two Putnam events and one Blackhawk event for the rest of the season. Early reg is $285 for the weekend and $165 a day (both early registration). Here are his websites.

If you ask around in the midwest Putnam is usually at the top of most people's list. It's a fast flowing track with minimal elevation changes. Easy to learn and for the most part is pretty smooth. It can wear rear tires a bit quick if things arent set up properly. But even if you kill a tire it is well worth the trip!

What bad things have your heard? The only problem I have ever heard is management is a bit difficult to work with, but as a rider thats a non issue.

Been going there for years and never really had a complaint about track surface (except for having proper setup to keep tires from being killed). And they just built garages that have power and air. I would recommend it as a good track to get your feet wet. Good for liter bikes, easy to learn the track, and it can be VERY fast!
