    Springfield Mile

    Anyone here going to the Springfield Mile? Is there a BMW corral ?

    Is there a favorite motel ?.... I have such bad luck with weather getting to S/field...but what the heck?

    Two years ago was my last trip, I got caught in a fast & furious hail storm,..thought one stone broke my shoulder. Turned out not to, but hurt for a week.

    Every time I go to that event, it rains... So, if I don't go to it, every one else can enjoy the race.
    Talking about the race in Springfield ILL on the memorial day weekend.

    I apoligize, I thought it was famous enough that most were aware of it.

    It is a 1 mile dirt, flat-track motorcycle race, held in Springfield ,Ill each year on Memorial Day weekend. It really is neat to see.

    Just FYI...it is part of the AMA Flat-track series. The series is held around the country, on 1/4 , 1/2, & mile tracks, in various states / locations. Check out the AMA site if you are interested......
