And the black lake is several acres of the best asphalt you'll find anywhere. Smooth. No poles, signs, drains, bumps, or obstructions on the entire surface and 50+ feet of smooth runoff in all directions.

It's quite possibly the best and safest autocross site I've ever seen.

That's gonna make it hard for all of us HSCC people, what will we do if we don't have light poles, curbs, and parking blocks to dodge?

Yeah I won't know what to do without poles and blocks to dodge. I think I might not go now.

One more boring week and we will be on the way to Laurens. ALRIGHT.

Still, keep your eyes peeled for workers. Some car almost took out Brian Flanagan and I at the SE Divisional #1. Note to self, do not stand next to the spare cones.
