Might as well. They don’t have enough horsepower to run 2 miles anymore.
I think if you look at the white rectangle in turn 3 and 4 it almost looks to me like a tunnel.So the garage is outside the track? Very interesting. Vibes of going to Bristol in the late 80s and early 90s when the haulers parked outside the track and the crews worked on the cars on pit road during practice with nothing put the pit box and a tailgaiting tent. (I know new track will have state of the art garages, but still...) If a car "has to go to the garage" for repair, how will it get there and back if allowable during a race? (I know it's really rare since the implementation of the repair clock)
I said that on Twitter. For that kind of money, a person could buy North Wilkesboro, get it to 2021 standards, and still have money left over. But if they sale the land around it, they'll make back a bunch. Sucks the best 1.5-mile/2-mile track will go away.Needless to say, this is gonna be EXPENSIVE
Because it needs a repave soon. It would be wildly expensive and take away the track's main selling point (the worn surface), turning it into a worse version of Michigan for the next decade.Wait, are they taking one of the only consistently entertaining ~2mi race track and demolishing it to change it to a short track?
I agree, we're at 7 years since Michigan was repaved and its still 1 1/2 grooves.Because it needs a repave soon. It would be wildly expensive and take away the track's main selling point (the worn surface), turning it into a worse version of Michigan for the next decade.
Look at the blueprint: On the lower left, below the area labeled "Paddock," theres long parking spaces. Park haulers there, and keep infield free like Bristol used to be for good sight lines?If you are talking about the way it is set up now the garage isn't outside.
