I'll be there. I'm not sure yet if I'll autocross on Saturday and track on Sunday or track both days.

I'm hoping to get out there this year to drive. I went out there last year just as a spectator.

If you've ever wanted to try out a track day, there are some low-cost, introductory options during this weekend:

Looking to get a feel for what takes place in a high performance driving school? We are pleased to offer the Taste of the Track for $75. This includes attendance in all classroom sessions as well as a session riding with an instructor on track in the instructor's car.

Parade / Touring laps will be available at lunch time. You can drive your car on track without a helmet with a top speed of 50 mph. No cost, but a charitable donation is encouraged.

Saturday Autocross and Straight line acceleration

Saturday afternoon will feature a competitive autocross on a challenging course at the site of the former Solo national championship - and that happens to be at Heartland Park! An autocross entry is only $35 and provides a great way to test your skills! Please contact the registrar (registrar@flatoutdrivingschool.com) to add the autocross event to your registration.

We also will have fun running the Heartland Park NHRA dragstrip Saturday evening. While spots are limited, we do still have a few spaces available if you'd like to join us at the strip! The cost is $15 and that will include multiple passes down the track. Please contact the registrar (registrar@flatoutdrivingschool.com) to add the Dragstrip event to your registration.

I did all three and had a blast.

I saw you a few times during the day Nick. I had my truck parked pretty much right in front of you. I didn't get a chance to touch base until Sunday and it was right when you were leaving. Maybe next time.

I also had a great time, one of the better track weekends I've been a part of. I will post up some pics once I get them all.
