Bored and itching to get back on track so was browsing through motorsportreg, and found an interesting event.
Poconos - North Course, 1 day "Twilight" event on 9/8. Starts at 4pm, ends at midnight so they'll have the lights on. Always avoided Poconos but given they supposedly repaved the pavement, it shouldn't be too bad. Only $195, less than 2hrs away from most, and no early morning drive means no hotel required (all proceeds go to charity too!)
