We were there and we can tell you it’s really coming along!  The new road course at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park is well underway:  new buildings, track graded, binder coat of asphalt scheduled for September 2013.  The first events will be in June 2014 and everything will be well tested and debugged when NER’s first DE event takes place September 26-28 of next year.

But you don’t have to wait till then to get a preview.  Thanks to Jon Hoenig, President, and Josh Vanata, General Manager, you can get a tour of the work-in-progress AND see some fantastic racing.  October 20th is Thompson’s premier NASCAR date with Whelan Modifieds and ISMA Super Modifieds plus other classes.  And just in case you weren’t a super modified junkie, be advised that these cars (1,000 hp and a huge wing) can hit 180 mph – yes, that’s not a typo – on this 5/8 mile oval track!  A full schedule of racing starts at Noon.  A pass that includes pit access is normally $75 but as a perk for our DE participation we get a special price of only $25. 

We’ll meet in the new VIP Registration Building (gray building near main entrance – where you will sign in for DE’s in the future).  If you want to do the road course tour, be there at 10am.  Otherwise, pick up your wrist band and meet the other PCA’ers at 11:30.  You will be required to show your PCA membership card.

To get the $25 price you must sign up by midnight Oct. 12th.  Those who just show up on the day of the event can participate at a cost of $35 (bring cash or check).
