Podium One in Charlestown Indiana is a very popular track in this area. It is more of a supercross track than anything. It also has a woods section and some great hills.
They have decided they will have quad racing this Sunday, 8/26.(first time)

This I gotta see!
I don't wish bad on anyone, but I hope they have plenty of ambulance service available that day!

I use to race quads up in Michigan and one of the big events every was when the amatures raced their quads in the Silverdome on the pro supercross track. Seldom did anyone get seriously hurt, but seldom did anyone actually try the big doubles and triples on quads either. What WAS common was for guys getting out of shape and being thrown over the bars after the jumps, only to have their own quad run them over.

Well, the day was a wash out. I did ask a couple of riders if they took the doubles. They said that on other tracks the biggest was about a 50ft double that some A riders and a couple of crazy farmers with no teeth could do.
