    Something to get the taste of plate racing out of my mouth.

    Have you guys been to this track before? I'm thinking about going next year because it's close-ish to where I live and I've never visited the state. How's the track in person?

    I absolutely love the facility! Parking is a breeze, the viewing angles are excellent as well! Plus it's a nice race! There's a reason I've decided to make the 10 hour drive 4 years in a row. Doesn't hurt that Ohio has awesome golf courses!!

    Where do you prefer to sit? Do you get a hotel for the weekend or do you camp? I've never stayed in the infield before but I think I might change things up for this race.

    I am starting to like this race more and more as each year passes ,looking forward to hopefully having another Saturday night race that actually gets to run on Saturday night.

    I get a hotel in Cincinnati. Tons of really nice, affordable options with plenty of things to do nearby! Plus you're only about 45-60 minutes from the track!

    NC Hillbilly,

    I forgot to mention I sit in row 30-32 near the exit of pit road, towards turn 1. $59 for banging seats is hard to beat....

    PJ1 will not only be used the next two weekends at Kentucky and New Hampshire but in hopes of improving the ability to pass, the traction compound will be used (along with the tire dragon) in all three turns in the upper groove at Pocono in a few weeks.

    I drove past the speedway yesterday and today. I never realized how close it was to the interstate.

    Lots of RVs heading in that direction the past couple days.

    This track is absolutely dreadful for on track product the last few years. The worst on the circuit and it's not even close. Hopefully "The Package" makes it better

    Yeah we’ve kind of seen a return to 1.5’s putting on a heck of a show. You look back in the 80s and 90s and they were probably the best racing. Then as power rose it started to favor road courses and short tracks

    The race 3 years ago was crazy! Truex had the best car but got a penalty late and still nearly caught back up to win. He put on an epic charge. Kenseth had the lead late then had to pit. The 2 basically won by coasting to the finish line. The last two races have been so-so at best. After witnessing the Pocono debacle i'm hoping for a good show Saturday night....

    Interesting move by Brad to gain that much needed momentum by jumping right onto the track.

    I wonder how many caught him doing that? Great thinking by Wolfe and company.

    The Quaker State thing is more confusing than the whole ambiguous is it Fort Worth or not fiasco. Are they intentionally disrespecting Pennsylvania and William Penn's legacy? Why dost thou screw with my mind like this?

    This is what happens when they are allowed to dismiss Fort Worth, or calling it Charlotte when it is Concord or Phoenix when it is Avondale, Dammit.

    The Quaker State anxiety has been severe this week. It caused the awful Diarrhoea Dysenteries. Being an eternal optimist is the only thing that saved me and I amused myself thinking well at least it looks like some used up Quaker State.

    I know others have suffered too, stay strong and try to remain as positive. You can be a positive shining light too!!! The racing goes on, boogity, boogity, boogity.
