Things actually happen in Nebraska?

Don't be fooled by the title of that thread. Things don't really happen in Nebraska. However, there is a three-day road race that goes on in Arnold, NE during early August called the Sandhills Open Road Challenge. It sounds like it'd be a lot of fun, and it'd be nice to have a small group of S's to combat the preponderance of Corvettes that show up every year. For those of you who are wondering why I'm a month late on this, well actually I'm 11 months early. Since I'm forgetful, I figured I'd let everyone know well in advance. It'd probably take 11 months to convince a lot of people that there's actually something worthwhile that happens in Nebraska anyway.

I'm planning on showing up next year if I get all this clutch/tranny rigmarole taken care of and have the vacation time and money to partake in the fun.

I think it'd be a fun way to really test the S's boundaries. It's more clear-cut and wide open than autoX, and there's a pretty wide variety of curves that get thrown at you.

There aren't too many open road races like this anymore, so it brings in people from a lot of different states.

August 6-8 is when it's all going down this year.

Wow. I finally found a registration form that lists the prices for entry into this.

SANDHILLS OPEN ROAD CHALLENGE
ENTRY FEE FORM


DESCRIPTION


FEES



80 & 90 mph
$375

95 mph
$450

100 & 105 mph
$475

110, 115, & 120 mph
$525

Unlimited
$600

Navigator
$50


All of a sudden, this is REALLY not looking like such a hot idea. I don't think I'm spending almost 4 c-notes, which could be spent on legitimate modifications and/or maintenance, to do this.

Sorry for all the excitement. I guess if you're going to actually do something in Nebraska, you have to pay out the *** to do it.

This looks just like the Silver State Classic run in NV every year.
