It's getting closer! Do you know if they will have separate course for sled type vehicles? Last year it seemed like they had a hard time with all the ruts made by spiked tires and horsepower.

if we are lucky , the bikes and sleds get their own track.

 last year a big crack opened in that special track, so everyone had to drive on the same one. luckily my rocket sled burnt through the pipe , so i didnt get a run- i would probably have killed myself in those ruts otherwise.

we have good ice here now. had a heavy snow storm last week, so Glenn and company are battling to build new tracks. the weather forecast looks good for us anyway- no more snow, and nice and cold.
