We got there around 9:30. Time trials were just starting, which is normal.
3 rounds of qualifying for the faster (12.99 and faster) classes. Scheduled for 11, 12, and 1. Eliminations are scheduled to start at 2 pm.

Schedule is usually trash by 11 depending on who breaks and drives all the way down the track. This time it wasn't too bad, my buddy had a fitting break on his heater core lines, and sprayed coolant on most of the track that caused an hour delay, but otherwise it wasn't too bad for once. Still everything started about 1.5 hours late.

All day long until eliminations they let you run as many passes as you can in order to figure out your dial-in and practice. I got a dozen or so timeslips on my passenger seat. Once you get knocked out of your bracket, you can get back in the fun-run lines and keep running for fun.

rayray, where in Wisconsin? If you are near Madison, you can come with us. No Cobalts in our group but we let anybody tag along. Came with 7 cars, met up just east of Madison. 3 1st gen Neons, 1 SRT-4, 1 2g turbo fwd Eclipse, 1 Stratus R/T, and 1 Sentra SE-R. It's alot more fun with more people in the brackets. 5 of the people I brought never raced before, and 2 of them won money, everybody that went wants to go next month.

Anybody planning on going? It's this Sunday, starting around 9 am for time trials, 1-2 pm or so eliminations start. I'll be there, hopefully the rest of my parts show up tomorrow.

Didn't see any Cobalts this time, the 13 second turbo one wasn't there this time.

I won $200 for getting 1st in Super mod (13.00-14.99 bracket) and my buddy won $200 for 1st in Super Street (15.00-slower bracket). My best time was a 14.638 @ 94.93 mph.

Next race is June 20th, so far the only non-Neon domestics have been a Stratus R/T we brought, and an Ecotec Cavalier running mid 15's. Otherwise it's a bunch of Hondas and some DSMs.
