Pity me. 3 AMA flat track races for me this year and 2 of them are in NY. I do lead a charmed life. One of 'em I get to sleep in my own bed that night.

I personally feel responsible for the lack of flat track in NY. My last Syracuse Mile featured Graham, Scott, Filice, Springsteen, Shobert?, et al.....They used to run there and Hamburg. Now there is no more Mile. This year Vernon and Monticello.

Back in the good old days, I would hit Santa Fe twice a year, Springfield, Peoria, Columbus, Louisville, and Indy. Santa Fe was about 20 miles from my house. They had a short track and a TT every year there until it closed. I still get Springfield twice a year and Peoria, and they added Joliet recently. They had the DuQuoin mile for a while there too, but that is about 300 miles away even though it's in Illinois. Glad Indy is back in the schedule. Should be a great time.

You'll probably run into my ex and her new hubby on his RK, they live out that way and go to the Nascar races quite a bit. Don't imagine they'd miss a GP race.
Maybe they'll buy you a beer or something..

Just drink as much of his booze as you can get-away with.

I've a friend, who was somewhat "wild" in his younger days - one of his "conquests" at that time had a husband who was a Truck-driver.

When the Husband would go out on the road, he'd admonish her "I don't care who you got in yer bed when I'm gone - just don't let that sum-biotch drink my Beer!"

And she wouldn't, either.

So Wild Bill said to me, anyways.

Nah, they're decent folk. Besides, she put up with my sh*t for 15 years, I imagine she's suffered enough...
