Thankfully a bit of serendipity presented another opportunity just a few miles away on the eastern edge of the county . Jim was made aware of a landowner that was interested in seeing a race held on his property and the two connected to set a path forward .
From the minute the Reitz boys stepped into the woods at Dale and Lori Reynolds ’ expansive property near the small town of Summerville , they knew they had a hit on their hands . Any concerns about replacing the varied and entertaining terrain at LL with lesser features were washed away immediately . Like LL , this area is filled with the earthworks , shelves , valleys , and uniqueness associated with prior strip mine activities as well as plenty of old logging paths and preexisting ATV trails . Noting that the property was separated into two halves by the township access road , the Reitz ’ s were keen to create two separate courses in exploiting the Mid-Atlantic region ’ s now slightly prophetic focus on controlling travel expenses in its 2022 schedule . More good fortune was a vacancy in the later part of this season ’ s schedule , meaning the full weekend doubleheader was set to take place in early September , bolstering hopes for more stable weather and providing plenty of time for Jim and the boys to learn the land and craft worthy courses .
