This decision was not made lightly, but World Wide Technology Raceway really ticked all the boxes for us. It is a beautiful, state-of-the-art facility with full asphalt parking, a fiber optic CompuLink timing system, and hardworking staff. Event dates average highs of 80 degrees and lows of around 60 degrees, providing the perfect weather for the race.”
