    The Majestic Star lot will not be available until further notice. Majestic has signed a contract with BP to let them use that parking lot for storage of equipment that is being used for a project that will be going through the area. Majestic Star has been great to INR in the past and we hope to be able to return to Majestic Star in the near future. We will run the rest of our events including the August 19th event at Portage High School.

    This is heartbreaking... I guess we'd be wise to be on the lookout for possible venues?

    We are my friend. Gabe I know you like to cruise the back roads and industrial areas, so keep an eye out.

    How about the old Portage K Mart next close to the high school?
    Granted it does have a few islands, but it's a decent size lot...

    This is very disappointing. I've been wracking my brain since I found out, trying to think of another good lot, but nothing as enormous as Majestic Star comes to mind. I even starting looking at the overhead view on Google maps trying to find something, lol.

    The only place I can think of is Illiana Speedway. They have the infield 1/4 mile oval with an X going through the center. Some pretty cool courses could be made on that. The downside is they have their own races Saturday nights, so we couldn't set up the day before. Our October dates may work, though. They don't have races in October, but do have a swap meet there on the 20th (day before our last event).

    I wanna know what kinda stuff they'll be hauling in... that entrance tunnel is only 12' high and not too wide. Barging in it perhaps? It just doesn't makes sense...

    Side note, K Mart in St John should also be vacant.

    I see that Chicago PCA runs at Balmoral Park a couple of time per season. Has anyone run there? I appears to be about the same distance for me as Majestic is.

    I haven't run there, but it is a pretty sizable lot.
    I'd be worried about surface condition, and weather it falls in our region map though..
