It's actually in Madison, IL. Just north of 55/70 kinda near Collinsville. It's not the dangerous part of East St. Louis all of us here know and love :p

Hey guys, its actually quite safe over in the race track areas and they have events almost every month. For everyone that is coming from out of state or don't live in the area. There are a lot of us staying at the Drury Inn in Fairview Heights, IL (about 10 miles east of the race track).

Drury Inn & Suites
12 Ludwig Drive
Fairview Heights, IL 62208
618-398-8530

There is a meet and greet party on Friday (July 19th) with free food provided by Drury Inn.

No, it ISN'T in East St. Louis. That area is safe north of 70/55. Yeah, I wouldn't go if it was actually in ESL. This track is almost brand new and a VERY cool place. It's one of the best drag strips in the country.

My grandparents live in O'Fallon. That Drury Inn is literally 10 minutes away from them. Only 30 minutes away from me!

Brian, you should come! :p
