Track opinion for noob

So I'm looking to do my first track day this summer. It looks like NESBA might be the way to go since they have track days somewhat close to where I live in Central VA. I'm thinking about mid July trying to hit either VIA or Summit Point and was wondering (for those of you with some track experience)

1) Is there a better track to goto for my first day (VIR or SP)

2) Would it be bad to do the full VIR day on my first track day or should I stick to the Patriot loop?

Thanks, and hopefully I'll get to see some of you there!

If you want to jump into the DEEP End........ Go to VIR.

That track is incredible. It has everything you could want.
And you WILL Get your money's worth at the end of the weekend.

It will make you a better rider, if you take your time and learn the track.
