I did a 37 hr Chumpcars enduro there last November. Yes, 37 hours...7 am to 8 pm the next night. Raining and 30 degrees. Froze my arse. 7 driver team. Our '80 RX-7 finished 6th. It is a bumpy track, especially the hairpin at the top end of the course. Beats up the suspension pretty good.

No kidding! This is my 10th year of doing Ariel road racing as my main source of motorsporting fun, and for the first year or so, my neck was SORE! on Monday, after two days of fun, with five fifteen minute sessions each, on Saturday and Sunday! My neck muscles really appreciate the lightest carbon fiber helmet I was able to find! :wink
I can imagine..!!

I took advantage of this great December weather by lapping my new Turbo Atom at Eagles Canyon Raceway-







Good Gee, and Big Fun! And it is really sweet to be able to go fast but not have to work on the car! :biggrin

(Especially for a retired top fuel pilot!) :lol

Thanks for looking, and,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Looks like a fun track -

The track itself offers 2.5 miles and 11 turns of flat-out fun. The facilities at Eagles Canyon Raceway help complete the package and help the track stand out when compared to other road race tracks. Pinnacle Autosports located on site offers a full service racing prep and support facility. Eagles Canyon offers self-service pumps with premium and race fuels, a large club house with observation deck, a grill with available catering, RV hookups, and day paddocks to help fulfill the needs of all customers utilizing the facility.

We've run Eagles Canyon in our LeMons Mustang. A really fun track, lots of elevation change and funky off-camber turns. Also, some unusual places for overtaking opportunities. Bumpy as hell in places though, and a couple of corners give a big chance to stuff into something hard if you go off track.
