    Zero comments in two days, knew there’d be a 75th anniversary hangover drop off but that portends for an even slower year than I expected. Stumbled across a campsite at my favorite state park about 6 weeks ago and a 2016 Springfield that was too good to pass up so my fxdf stays home. Looking forward to seeing the new flat track layout on Thursday after Willie’s and my favorite poker run for the local humane society. Got Sons of Speed on Saturday and sounds like a little more space in between to catch up with vendors and friends. Look forward to Cyril’s coverage as always too.
