That was great information for people who have never been to a track of any kind no matter what rules the track may enforce. One big rule is always be considerate of the other people, do not act like you are 16 and go around challenging everyone to a race. I have seen that and it really hack me off. Have fun and do your best, and keep it off the wall.
Again very good info!
