It says the Facebook link has been removed. Anyway here’s a picture of The Rock from two days ago, track doesn’t look too bad and the garages look functional
Do you know of any news on how it’s going with the track being revived? I thought a race was going to be held there in October, but I don’t remember the seriesThey've got a lot of work to do. I told them back in December I'd come out and help them with the media center and setting it up when they're ready to get to that. They have my number.
CARS Tour. There’s a tire test on Wednesday. I can’t make it out but one of my guys will be there for Short Track Scene.Do you know of any news on how it’s going with the track being revived? I thought a race was going to be held there in October, but I don’t remember the series
I love the Rock, almost as much as Darlington. When you go to a race at these two tracks you are reliving NASCAR. Thanks for offering to help. A NASCAR race of any type at the Rock and I will do everything I can to be there.They've got a lot of work to do. I told them back in December I'd come out and help them with the media center and setting it up when they're ready to get to that. They have my number.
I thought it was because it was in the middle of nowhwere?It's a good way to warm back up to the facility, but it still looks like accessing the track will be a problem if they decided to host more events.
That's been the heel of the track for as long as its been open.
Yeah I don't think they are ready for prime time. Hopefully they can draw a crowd with the smaller stuff and their other events they hold and make a go of it.I really feel for whom ever is spending the money on Rockingham, but, due to location and existing area infrastructure, stick a fork in it, it is done.
I went to the Rockingham Track for the last Cup race there and really enjoyed it, but ingres and egres were a pain in the you no what.
Some teams built specially-built cars just for this race. The way the sheet metal is designed on late model stock cars, the teams had to build a bunch of metal bracing to keep the outer body panels from from flapping in the wind.A ton of races have been canceled over tire shortages. Interestingly, Hoosier's found enough tires for teams to be able to purchase two, three, four, even six sets of tires for bigger races.
This race, however, required a special compound after they had numerous issues in testing last winter and it was always unrealistic to think, given that they couldn't produce enough tires for tracks to race, they'd be able to produce tires for this one.
This was the inevitable result.
