I have never raced there and was wondering what it was like. Our AMC race is going to be there for the first time.
How is the track and the track prep?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Good luck, on the radial nights the track prep isnt much. Capitol is a big tire bracket track. Left lane is usually the better side. Oh and if its a windy day your car will get sand blasted coming down return road from the sand and gravel company that is right next to the track.

If this is the car I am thinking of I am not sure it will be "fine". I have a hard time hooking on motor and then I have to spray it, and my car isnt anywhere near as fast.

Bring a bunch of orange cones and build a perimeter around your rig.
Otherwise some asshat will park right behind your trailer with a mini-van,set his car alarm,and walk away.

Leave a security guy at your trailer when you run.

I agree that the track and pits do need a little TCL and I wish Jim & Kim would put some money back into the place:(

It’s ok, the few times I have raced there it took them a long time to run the cars. The pits are all asphalt , I have ran some of my best ET’s there. It sucks during the summer time because they have no trees to get out of the sun.
