    Default Summit Point Track Day 420R

    Ground hogs are fine, they keep to themselves. I have a bunch out the front of my NJMP garage on the outer edge of the Jersey Devil corner. The turtles are not good though. Hard to keep traction in the corners.

    A deer would add substantial volume to the underwear, so to speak.

    Blackhawk Farm just in the il/wi border, the old timers call the back straight dead deer straight after a motorcyclist chopped one in half, he lived to talk about it.

    Summit Point is well known for deer. I've seen them on the inside of the track but fortunately never on it. There's a video somewhere of one running across the main straight and jumping over a car that was coming down it. No damage to either one! I was there 2 weekends ago and it looks like the new owners have put up a deer fence around the perimeter so hopefully no more. Plenty of groundhogs. Not pretty when you're going down the chute into turn 5 in a formula car with a groundhog standing on the edge of the track at the apex. Stayed there for 3-4 laps and then gone. Flaggers never saw it. Critters at VIR as well. Had the pleasure of following someone up the beginning of the climbing esses who ran over a groundhog. Fortunately - I was in a closed car. Found the hose when came back into the paddock.

    Check this one out. Down the front straight. Make sure you haven't just eaten. Realize- he's the guy in back of the car that hit it. That's aint dirt on his windsheild!!
