St. Louis is putting on an race September 14,15. The race is expected to be run in the clockwise direction(oposite of normal). We have been making tire walls and getting SCCA review. We have a couple of last minute details, but expected to happen. This should be a new and fun experience. See information below from registar. Sign up now on Motorsportreg.

Actually, ~1.6 miles not 1.85, but who’s counting? :) For those who don’t know, pavement has already been laid to increase the length to ~2 miles and is expected to be certified soon, so that will be the layout next year. Plus, rumors of plans for a new road course just west of the drag strip are not baseless. Nothing definite yet but current ownership and partners are keen to expand the road racing appeal.
