    Grattan July 6-7?

    Thinking about going to Grattan in July... STT will be there three days; July 5th for Ladies day, then through the weekend for the rest of us.

    They just repaved the track too! Grattan raceway

    I believe those are old pictures. To my knowledge the last repave was in 2011, I haven't heard any news of a repave on the WERA forums, etc and normally that is big news. So I would confirm it before believing it.

    Now Barber is scheduled for a complete repave in August! Can't wait to ride that.

    To be honest Dave, I'm not sure... never been there. It's mentioned on their main page too.

    Of course, I've never been to Barber either, so there's that...

    Yeah, those are the ones I was referring to. I also looked at a facebook group for Grattan and no mention of a recent repave there either. Not saying it's impossible, just saying I can't believe there hasn't been talk about it if it was true.

    I agree, if nobody is talking about it, then it probably didn't happen. They should really update their website! Shame, their pavement is crappy, LOL!

    But it's still a fun track right? I'd like to go, though I'm going to wait and see for a bit yet.

    Oh, it's super fun! Lots of elevation changes, blind turns and long ass straight. If there is any moisture at all, even just morning dew, it can get slick.
