Mid-West Boss Meet

Anyone with Boss's in the midwest want to get together for a track day or autocross or something this year? I'm in mid Illinois and am really curious if there are people near me that want to get an event going.

I would be interested.

Blackhawk farms will have open track days this summer. Road course located near the Wisconsin line.

Autobahn also has day open this year.

I am located south of Rockford.

Very limited schedule. I work overseas. Home frequently.

Yeah, Mine's on Jack's in the garage until this crappy weather clears up. My purchase date was March 14th. I am hoping I can get some decent weather by then to take in on a nice trip in search of good roads.

Anyone in Missouri? I'm thinking about driving down near the Ozarks for a little driving weekend.

Well I'm just outside St Louis so I spend most of my back road driving in MO. I dont typically make it all the way out to the Ozarks though. There are lots of great roads just outside of St Louis. I have about 5 different routes that vary in time from 2 hours all the way to 8.

My best friend lives in U-city, so I'm pretty sure I'll be taking the Boss down that way for a weekend as soon as the weather warms up. I'll have to email you or something when that gets closer. Do you do any St. Louis Solo II?

I'm definitely down for a drive. I have no idea what St Louis Solo II is though?
 
Boss #2452 said:
Sorry, err...it's autocross. St. Louis SCCA regional Solo II autocross.
No worries man. It's been a long time since I did an autox. I'm still fairly new to the St Louis area and Gateway just opened back up so hopefully they will be doing some more stuff there since it's only 10 minutes from my house. If you ever come down for one, I have a garage you can use.

What color is your Boss? I saw a Gotta-have-it Green Boss on 74 headed east from Peoria last fall. Could it have been yours?
 
Boss #2452 said:
Cool, man. We've got a couple over in Decatur. Hopefully we see you sometime. Maybe in April.
Would love to have you come to Peoria with us, we will leave in the AM from Loves, Williamsville stop and cruise up for the day. If not the Rt 66 mother road festival in Springfield is nice.

I will be moving to the Indianapolis area come sept. is the season pretty much done then?

Actually on Sept 27-29 the Rt 66 Mother road festival is in Down town Springfield and there are usually about 1K cars parked for the weekend.
ALSO There will be a cruise up to the Wisconsin dells in the fist part of October for the Cruise for a cause weekend. We stay at the Chula Vista (water park and hotel) Friday is a meet and greet, Saturday is a big cruise (police escort through town) Putt putt Open, Show, Autocross then on Saturday night there will be a dinner with Great speakers (I have seen, John Chlor (SVT), Kenny Brown, Leroy Butler (Green bay packer)) plus tons of raffles and give aways (no junk, hi dollar stuff) If you want more info message me. This event is put on by WISVTOA and is open to all Ford Powered Vehicles.

Hey Justin. I'm from Indy originally. Lots of good time left for cruising and shows. I would agree with Boss 2452 that November is about the max, though.

Indianapolis Raceway Park is in Speedway, Indiana. Putman Park is a pretty epic road course that is only about an hour drive too.
