CANCELLED due to too much mud.

Registration in now open for Nebraska Regions first RallyX of the new year.

http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.cfm/ ... 83CF09FBE4

I'm helping Steve with the course and I hope it will be dryer than the one in Adel last month!!

For reference, the site is about 6 miles south of the Solo Nationals site at the Lincoln Air Park. It is an alfalfa field with some elevation changes.

Typically, road racers want to stay out of the dirt as much as possible. haha

Just an FYI...

The Omaha/Lincoln area got anywhere from 6-10 inches of snow last weekend. We are going to go to the site this weekend to check things out. Steve lives about 1 mile from there so he can check it every day as well. Hopefully we should be good to go for the event the following weekend. We have more elevation changes than the Adel site is so we shouldn't have the mud (aka: frozen frog snot) issues.

Remember, the rallycross is this weekend in Lincoln, NE. Scott and myself are planning on heading over. It would be great if some other DMVR members made the trip.

The event site is very easy to get to.

I-80 East to Lincoln
Exit #397 on Hwy 77 South (only option at this exit)
After about 6 miles turn Right at traffic light on Denton Road
(it is Denton Road to the right and different road to the left)
The road quickly goes from 4 lanes to 2 lane, the event site is aprox 1 mile and is on your right.
Look for racecars and trailers in the driveway.
