2nd annual OctoberFest gathering....

Yes, we can hardly believe it ourselves that another riding season is (gulp, dare we say)drawing to a close? That all depends on the weather, I suppose. But what the hey, there's reason to celebrate on Oct. 16 as we host the 2nd annual IronWorks October Fest Party. This will entail our version of a mini Burning Man which has now been dubbed, "Burn the Giant Wood Man". Tim has graciously donated a rickety 5-foot step ladder as the support structure of which various hunks of scrap wood will be liberally applied.

Ducati Island was a more popular destination on the infield that included not only bike displays, vendors, local clubs, but an autograph session with Nicky Haden (I got me one. hahahahaha); a fashion show and a dedicated Ducati seating area along turn one.
The bad: a young rider lost his life on the track Sunday morning. This happended during a race for the USGP Rider's Union series, which is a feeder prog…
