One T-n-T this fall?

According to their site, there is one, Sept 20th. Is that right? I really prefer going to The Rock, hoping they have more tnt's than this.

That's all they have these days. The only other T&T (fun runs) is the Phantasm Import races, of which there is only one left in November.

I wish they had more T&T's too, but I can't say I blame them as the turnout for T&T's the last several years has been really low.

That might have something to do with track prep being a low priority. Last couple of T&T's I attended there, a car wash had more track prep

That sucks. I definitely preferred Rockingham through the years, but they're making it where you just go to Nam.

It is something that has mushroomed over the years. They didn't prep much for T&T back in the day, then Fayetteville re-opened, and was a closer track for a lot of people, also taking away a lot of business.

Then if you only have 10-15 cars for a T&T, you can't blame them for not putting a ton of work into prep. But that reputation is what led to the poor turnout in the first place.

It's a shame because with the new bypasses, US-1 is 4 lanes all the way there, a lot faster commute than it used to be.

I definitely prefer the "new" drive to Rockingham and I live in Apex right off highway one. Has Nam ever repaved that terrible return road?

Do you think that if you prep, it will bring more cars to T&T?

I stopped going to T&T at Rockingham 10 years ago b/c of the lack of track prep. I see some things never change.
On a race day though, the track works great.

From the looks of my schedule, I'll be lucky to get one or two tnt's in this fall. Football with my younger one late Saturday, band competition in Danville the 27th with my older one.....

I'm running a 5k for our church that morning and a band competition that afternoon. Busy time of the year for us. Good luck! RPM doesn't have any Ford links...... He must charge you extra!
