Is that Fonda?
I'll bet nobody gets this one.
Chicago Motor Speedway, VIR, Nazareth
1st and 3rd right, but not the 2nd one
The name of the track is in the picture
Hmm ok, that was a guess I'll keep thinking.
Walt Disneyworld Speedway?
Something like that - I can't quite put my finger on what gives it away though
Well, now I just feel stupid.
Yep, and I figured if anyone got it it would be you for the reason given.
I watch SLM races there as much as possible, 62 miles from home.
Does anyone want to make this a semi-formal off-season game? We do something similar on my ski forums in the off-season. Post a picture of a track, people guess, and whoever gets it right gets to post the next picture. That way we're not posting and guessing 7 pictures at once...
I knew nothing of Chicago Motor Speedway. Very interesting.
I also learned Sepang and Shanghai have ridiculously close features minus the giant super-chinese arch. ****** Hermann Tilke.
I'm in, though I'm still stumped on that roadcourse I couldn't get earlier...I don't think its American.
Here's a good one
It was a pretty cool track, way better than what we have now in Chicagoland Speedway. I was there in August of 99 for the inaugural Target Indy Grand Prix. Went back for the 00 and 01 editions where also in 01 I saw a 16 year old Kyle Busch race in the Trucks race there and I was blown away because we are the same age, I couldn’t imagine someone the same age as me racing professionally already. By 02 CART and NASCAR pulled their races and put them at the spanking new Chicagoland Speedway. The speedway soon died after. It wasn’t actually in Chicago limits, it was in a suburb called Cicero where I currently work today. In fact I drive by the old speedway almost everyday which has been torn down in favor of a Walmart and Wirtz Beverage (they own the Chicago Blackhawks), on Friday’s I actually service the Wirtz facility and drive in the same exact way as I used to for the old speedway, a bit of a time warp.
Okay this thread is awesome....here’s one you’ll get a “atta boy” if you get this one
now for our oval enthusiasts
What's the backstory with why they built 2 tracks in Chicago in very quick succession? It just seems so odd to build this and then build Chicagoland.
MIlwaukee Mile. Too easy to Google the street names.
Damn I uploaded the wrong picture lmao. Idiot I am....
How about this one....anyone?
I was too young to understand why it failed, I remember my father saying it was tough to do business with the town (which is very true) and Joliet gave NASCAR/ISC a sweet heart deal to move their Truck race. Here’s some links I found to better explain. It’s a shame...such a cool track it was like if Dover and New Hampshire had a baby, Chicago Motor Speedway was the kid. I remember my dad and I trying to figure how Cup cars would do there...CART put on a good show there.
Nashville Superspeedway, took a second but then I saw the concrete.
Long time lurker, first time poster. Since nobody was getting the second one, it’s Brands Hatch.
Ah man, and I've driven that in racing games too. Also welcome.
I’ve driven Brands Hatch so much on Gran Turismo I know it like the back of my hand.
Should be Korea. Home of the short lived Korean Grand Prix.
Top one is Englands Rockingham
Yes sir!!! Fun track to drive in F1 2010 game.
No it was already said....The Milwaukee Mile
I always wondered what happened to that place. Wasn't that also the location for that awful Sly Stalone racing movie?
Last one for me today.....
Yes. And yes. I actually loved that movie Driven.....it’s so bad it’s a guilty pleasure.
Texas World. The road course was still in use until they filled it with flooded cars after the Houston hurricane.
No takers on this super random track in the center of the desert?
