GPR-East New York Raceday

10:25am East New York Raceway-Whiskerville, Connecticut, USA-The track is quiet. On the start line the first cars of the day are already lined up hours ahead of the 12pm EST start time.

A few crews are out inspecting the road surface. The rollers have been brought out to smooth the copper tape and a track official is keeping back the eager media who've gathered for "track prep" photos.

...more updates soon.
