Please grant Shauna and I our averages for the upcoming July event. We will be attending the Pro-Solo in Topeka that weekend. I'll say hi to KJ for y'all.

Meh...
Should have gone to Packwood instead. As soon as I took my first practice start I realized why we haven't been back in 12 years. If we could just move the bathrooms/tech building to Lincoln we would all set!

The autocross lot and surface is not the greatest. I'm sure it's perfectly fine for local events with a lowish turnout. The surface is asphalt that is breaking up and sinking, so it is pretty bumpy is some spots. Overall grip is about the same as Fontana. When we held Nationals there, the surface was new and decently grippy on line, but very sandy offline. Now it's sandy offline and not very grippy on line...

The bathrooms, tech shed, and trackside garages are sweet though. The bathrooms are big, air conditioned, and have showers. Tech is a garage that you can pull through, it has an in-ground scale which makes it super easy and convenient for weigh-ins.
I wish we could have those facilities at Lincoln.
