Be carefully, traction suck at the start line and it's bumpier then hell at the finish. I literally got into a tank slapper at the finish line because of the rough road. Scared the sh_t out of me.

For some reason their ET and Mph seem to be faster than any where else. But oh well Ublys schedule suck this year and there isn't any where else close to go.

You are correct. Ubly has been known for this with the fast cages. Most guys I know will not go to Lap or Ubly cause of traction and other issues.

In the north, your right.. there is nothing else. But Milan is south and they just redid the first 1/8 mile with fresh concret.

I can't run 9's on a Duc. But I noticed jdagsxr has an 02 Busa on his profile. He should be running 9s, not sure who else went.

Lapeer wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be... yeah the dirt pit area sucked but there is a paved area to loop around on

I got my first scare on the 929 with the front end gettin loose runnin down the left lane bad enough that it made me not want to go back out until late in the day Jaramie and Lonnie talked me into goin down the right side thinking it might have been due to the dip in the left lane... so I did and ya know they were right.. I had no problem runnin down the right side 10.8 without even tryin hard by that time there was hardly any runnin anymore so I looped around 5 times non-stop and ended up being the last to run for the day.. too bad I hadn't went back out sooner maybe I could have gotten my old best time again of 10.3

I'd def. be up for going again...

Had a good time must have got`n in 25- 30 runs for the day. New best ET of 9.51


Also I run Milan, Ubly, and Lapeer and my time all repeat between all 3 tracks, and my old best time was at Milan so I don`t think there is anything wrong with the clocks at any of the tracks.
