Description The Northern Ohio Region PCA will be running a High Performance Driver's Ed event at Nelson Ledges open to all marques and all skill levels!

Nelson Ledges is back!!! Nelson Ledges has always been a local favorite with a rich racing history.  However, as the track condition continues to deteriorate, many of us were worried it would become a ghost.  Fortunately, a hardcore car enthusiast family has purchased the track and is completely rebuilding the facility.  Most importantly, they stripped the track down to the road bead and completely repaved it.  The also added apex curbing and will be adding exit curbing soon.  Nelson has always claimed to be the fastest 2-mile track in the country, and after taking some laps on it, I can verify that it lives up to that claim.  The track is wickedly fast - the new pavement has tons of grip and the new curbing allows you to attack the corners much more aggressively than in the past.

In addition to the new track surface, they have been steadily improving the facilities as a whole., The are pouching back the wall in several places to provide more runout and make things safer, all of the ramshackle buildings have been torn down, and there are new bathrooms with Air conditioning!

This will be a standard weekend HPDE, but will also be hosting the 944Fest event once again on Friday.  If you are participating in the 944Fest - register with the 944Fest guys after signing up for the track event portion here:

We will also be having a huge cookout at the track on Saturday as soon as the track closes at 5:00.  Anyone who has ever come to this event can attest to the fact this is a party not to be missed.  Great food, kegs of beer, wine, and a bonfire and Chinese lantern sendoff after it gets dark.  Camping is available and is always a popular option. 

See you in August!
