How many tracks?

Postby jtracr » Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:41 pm

Let me start off by saying that I spend 10-15 hours a day alone driving and that gives me a LOT of time to think. I started thinking about all the different tracks we have raced Jr's at. In 15 years we have ran at 22 different tracks thru 7 different states. I sit thinking back and have some sort of cool memory attached to each of them. Win or loose every event gives us family time that we will remember for a long time, that is a win within itself.

So just for the fun of it, add them up. Post on here, how many tracks thru how many states? I would love to see the numbers. Thanks.

We are just over a year in and have already been to 7 tracks in two states, going to add number 8 (third state) next weekend.

Not sure I even wanna think about 10 years from now.

We have raced at approximately 14 different states. WOW, it would take me a while to count up all the tracks. When I get the time I will so that.
I deserve respect for the things that i DO NOT do.

Haven't added up all of the tracks we've raced jr's at, but last year we did 8 different tracks in 5 different states. So far this year has been light on travel because of work so it's only 2 and 2 so far

I think 10 tracks in 5 states. I may have missed a couple though.

Definitely great memories and hopefully we can relive that through the next generation

Has been a off year do to my son wanting to work on his scouting adventures but in 5 years he has raced at.
Delaware US 13
Florida Gainesville
Georgia SGMP
Maryland Mir, Capitol, Mason Dixon, Cecil County
New Jersey Island, Atco, Englishtown
Pennsylvanian Numidia, Maple Grove, Beaver Spring, South Mountain
Tennessee Bristol
Virgina VMP

Have a lot of great memories traveling up and down the highway with him. The people we have meet along the way and the places we have seen together is worth all of the money that has been spent.Let alone we still have 3 more years to go. Just have to finish his Eagle Scout project then back on the road we will go.
