i've left the blog sitting for a while as i'm still unsure what i want to use i for (and unsure if anyone will read it.) but for now, i'll use it for more detailed discussions about things i'm doing with the site and plan to do with it.
i just arranged an informal partnership with DragTimes.com. DragTimes collects timeslips from drag runs around the world and provides an easy way to look up the times, whether by type of car or by track where the time was run. For each dragstrip that DragTimes knows about in the US and Canada, that track page provides a link for looking up recent timeslips.
after talking with Brooks (proprietor of DragTimes.com), i now agree that altitude is something that should be on the track pages, so i'm going to start adding that during the course of the normal update process. the new pages going into place right now are all in Canada (the US baseline is
finished), and I'll include altitude when i can come up with it.
Once the Canadian baseline is finished, i will need to go do some cleanup elsewhere on the site. I need to make a pass through the mid-atlantic states and bring those pages up to the current standard (they're the farthest behind right now), and then go through the southeast as well.
at some point I'll want to start documenting Sanctioning bodies thoroughly as well, but there's still a lot of race track stuff to do right now.
