    And yet you can buy tickets for 2016, interesting.
    Some people are like Slinkies ...
    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    I chatted with my friend this morning,
    She's married to the Speedway ceo,
    She told me that she thought her husband said that there were one more year on the contract.
    She said she'll get back to me.

    Book your flights and Accommodation to Austin before the "event price" hike

    If they moved Texas to any time in the summer then I'd be riding there.

    kick in the teeth to Schwantz isn't it? Didn't he have a fight with them over promotions, etc?

    I was stoked to ride down to Austin to watch a race when they first started talking about the new track.
    Got on the COTA mailing list, planned riding routes, etc.
    I figured it would be close enough on the schedule to maybe tag on a big summer ride with Laguna Seca...

    Then the schedule came out and the Texas race was in April, so I knew I wasn't gonna ride there.
    I understand that down in Austin it is hot in the summer, but any mountain summit pass from here to there can easily get snow in April.

    I'm kinda bummed that I never got in a trip to Indy.
    I'd rather ride to Indianapolis in August than Texas in April.

    Yes.
    Smoke, don't let the whole 'not getting to ride there' get in your way. F it, just fly down. Cuff and I blasted down this year and blew our ears out all day long at the track and blew our livers out in all the blues bars 6th St. all night for 4 straight nights.

    Fantastic place to go.
