You know...I wanna drive my car fast around a race track...there was a place nearby Indianapolis when I lived there...I think it was called "Putnam Park", but I never made it out there.

There is Blackhawk Farms Raceway in Rockton, IL
http://www.blackhawkfarms.com/
- This track is easy to lean and fun as hell. it was my 1st track and i had the line down in the 2nd session.

Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL
http://www.autobahncountryclub.net/
- I did the North course here. It is a lot more challenging, nothing but late apexs. (AMS is hosting an upcoming trackday. http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1776441)

As mentioned, Putnam, Blackhawk, Gingerman, Road America, Autobahn are all within a very reasonable driving distance.

Here are some in-car video:

Putnam Park - Click

Autobahn North - Click

Autobahn South - Click

Nice vids man. I like the way you kept reeling in those Miatas on the Autobahn South vid. That Silver CRX must be hella fast, didn't see him again after the start. Wish I had the funds to race around like that. Maybe when my rich uncle gets out of the poor house.

There's also a Byron Dragway, it's a little bit of a hike, but I'm pretty sure you can run there http://www.byrondragway.com/Home.html
