I usually like Tudor from 5pm to 5:30pm. My favorite! Nah, I like the back road going to Palmer. I don't know the name though, sorry.

Best road in the state that I've driven is the east end road out of Homer. I've only driven it in the spring, when it's got sand, gravel, water, man it's funky, but great second gear curves. Watch it if you go out there, the Russians are flying too...

We used to have a lot of good roads, but they are slowly turning them into straight and bring roads. I guess that is better for all the lousy drivers out there, but I remember when a drive down to Kenai or Soldotna was a good time!

Arctic Valley Road is by far the best road to rally on. But you guy's seem to like paved roads, so I would say a close second would be Campbell Airstrip road. That and the wide turn on Tudor road kicks ass in the summer.

Church road in Wasilla is a good road if you want a straigtaway. Probably 4 miles long without a single turn, but alot of small hill's. The whole Seward highway is a blast to hall ass on... as long as your not stuck behind some 40' road whale from Florida.

Almost forgot one! Hatcher pass Rd. (I think thats the name of it) Loooooong straights (willow side), perfect gravel for sliding around on, hairpins up the yang, steep inclines, just watch out for the cliffs. I haven't been up there in the suby yet, but I used to race up and down that road on my Banshee, Big Fun! Definately worth a trip up there just for the driving, the spectacular views are just a bonus.

Diamond on-ramp to New Seward South (during the summer) - Hit the light just right and it's a blast! There's a little bit of off-camber to the turn so you have to brake late and hard, then lift just a fraction after starting turn in, then hard on the gas
The sensation is that you are going to slide sideways, which is about when everything hooks up. First time I did this it scared the **** out of the guy next to me who was going straight.

Yeah, the Parks Hwy is a fun road from north of Nenana on up, but it's too fast, i.e. it's not tight enough to have major fun w/o triple digits. That's what's cool about the East End road. The east end of the Glenn Hwy (towards Palmer) is fun, too, but not as tight.

Default oops, forgot about one..

Right after you pass Benson heading down to the peninsula on the Seward Highway, there's an off-road to get onto the Old Seward Highway that leads to East 36th. That little off-road (not really an off-ramp) is a kickass place to powerslide in the winter time. I love how all the cars on Old Seward Highway have to stop for traffic comming off of the seward highway. And I love their faces when I take the turn at 40mph.

Well since i'm in juneau there's not a whole lot of choices.
It's not really a road but sheep creek area is awesome for throwing up some mud.
