What race was this? A district 15 race or are you staying in Illinois (district 17 right?)?
I ask because I entered my first enduro on the 12th this previous weekend and it was up towards your way. I didn't get to race because they only took cash and I only had a debit card (can't remember my pin so ATMs didn't help) and besides selling a steering damper for way less than its worth I couldn't find a way in.
In case anyone is wondering, driving six hours round trip for a race you can't compete in WILL piss you off.
