    I thought the track was closed and there was talk the property might be sold to a contractor to build something on it.

        I'm pretty sure they will have a test and tune night but with only four days, I don't think I want to try to fit it in this year.

          That is real good news.
          Has anyone contacted the track regarding the SDC IM schedule?

            Ted's right there will be a lot going on in a short period of time this year, but I would love to watch some Studebakers on the track.

              I would like to know if anyone has nailed this down.
              Would not want to bring a race car a thousand miles just to look at it...

                Any drag racing prior to/during/or following the International Meet is an unsponsored event by individuals, and is not part of the Meet. It is purely coincidental that it may occur during the week of May 2017. SDC does not support this event in any way, nor does the club's liability insurance cover any such occurrence.

                  Thanks for the info.
                  Most are aware of the SDC hands off stand...
                  Are you saying this in an official capacity?

                    It has, as you note, always been the position of the Studebaker Drivers Club.

                      This discussion has come up before.
                      That is why I asked if you were speaking as an official of the SDC.
