    Typically a small group, usually over by 5PM. $25 gets you the typical 4 runs (2 per heat) & 1 heat of working the coarse. an extra $10 gets you an extra 2 runs, if your in the top 10 you supposedly get all your $ back for the day. From what I understand this can a very fast course & loves to eat tires.

    The bigger worry than tires at the Mineralring is the loose gravel... especially if you are on sticky tires... if you try to keep your car pristine, you might look to autocrosses at Pennington (small, slow, but concrete surface) or TMS (big lot with usually-good asphalt). Just FYI.

    I like the PCA or BMW AX's at Mineral Wells. Usually 8 runs and the track is more open, although I like the SCCA/ER because it's more competitive and technical courses.

    Thanks for the info Brian, I've heard that about Mineral Wells. I'm using Falken Azenis & they are very sticky. Since I live in West Ft. Worth, it won't be a bad drive out there just to check it out.
