Does this track remind you of any other track you have raced on?
Pete “Pistol” Brittain - “No not really it is kind of unique.
You have that big sweeper down the back straight away and then it tightens
up coming into four. I cannot really think of anything that is similar to
Dwight Jarvis - “The track is pretty unique. It is a real nice
track with a good track layout. There is grip with the new black top. It is
almost like the Oxford, Maine track.”
Carl Pasteryak - “The track reminds me of Shangri-La, .the
original Shangri-La. the way that it is shaped and the way that you drive
Leaty - “It reminds me of the old Shangri-La before the new one. A
little smaller version of it but the way that you come off turn two and into
the back stretch off without any wall or anything. Kind of the whole radius

What do you think of the
Albany-Saratoga Race Track?
Pete “Pistol” Brittain - “I think they did a fantastic job
with it (Track). They did a great job paving and it is a real nice track to
race on. “

times. I think it will come in when we get more rubber up there. It will be
Dwight Jarvis - “There is not more than one groove right now,
not until we get some rubber down. We will work two grooves as we work the
rubber into it. When we get two grooves there will be some good racing.”
Carl Pasteryak - “I think that it is going to be a long day
tomorrow. It is a beautiful facility and they did a nice job with it.
Hopefully tomorrow will change, but I do not think that we are going to we
are going to be able to change the stripes on a zebra all in one day to a
Jan Leaty - “There is not more than one groove yet. Part of
that is us, the drivers with our cars. We are not going where we can. It

is being put down so maybe something will develop there”.
