I came here often before the amazing restoration. It was good then, but is beyond description now. The current owners, Ronnie and Terry Hedrick, spared nothing and it shows.
This past weekend was my second stay at the new facilities and there will be more next year when they open in the spring. This trip I brought my daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter with the purpose of running the Dragon in the Miata. 15 year old granddaughter got to ride with grandfather squalling the tires - great memories.
Thanks Ronnie, Terry, Becky, and All the staff - y'all are the best!
