Re: observation

The ER track used to be smaller, and I mean it used to race smaller...it used to get so rough you had to race the track and the bumps, not the competition, going into 1 and 3 you needed to dodge the bumps....The entries are not there so the track does not get near as rough as it used to be...Stop al...
