Sears Point was a pretty good place back in the day. I raced a few MX there in the 70's/80's. They set up the MX course in the hills above the road course. They have kart track too and last year I got to try a 125cc shifter kart there. That was the most violent thing I've ever tried to pilot!

These days it's a little run down, but what a great location! I imagine on Cup day, it's a spectacular take. All the crowds and color...

So Dinger went to Penske? He seems a great talent. Hope it works for him.
