    Since no one took a shot at my dirt track it was Airport Speedway in New Castle Delaware 1/8th mile for microsprints.

    I drive by it on the way to my favorite vacation destination. It felt super weird driving by for the first time. Took about 5 years for them to put a sign up. In the middle of absolutely bumfuck nowhere.

    The area is awesome with tons of history. I love tiny desert towns.

    An easier one but still a track with an interesting past. 4562823793_bc35a2675b_b.jpg

    Very Good! Winchester it is. Formerly known as Bob Senneker's personal playground. Recent Winchester 400 winners include Kyle Busch, Chase Elliott, Eric Jones (X3) and Noah Gragson. In April 2001, I did my very first pit stop there. I carried front tires.

    Since no one even took a shot at this it is Phakisa Freeway. It is located in South Africa and is the only paved oval on the continent. It has only hosted 1 race on the oval, an ASA exhibition in 2010.

    Here's one from back in the day where critics of auto racing were correct when saying that "the cars just go around in circles."

    Would that be one Langhorne Speedway?

    That would be Langhorne Speedway, Pennsylvania. One of the most treacherous race tracks to ever operate.

    That is a prototype of the track that Tony Stewart wanted after he was in the big one at Dega?

    Phakisa, South Africa... ASA ran here.

    Salem Speedway

    I love Winchester Speedway. Been trying to make my way back there.
    Funny story about that. There were a lot of rumors a while back about Tony Stewart buying Salem.

    Good ole Salem. Great racing, but it was the WORST track on the ARCA circuit from a crew perspective. They always parked the haulers outside of turn four, which turned into a swamp when it rained. The crossover gate was just about impossible for the haulers to negotiate, the pit road was narrow and uneven, and there was about two places on the entire pit road you could get accurate chassis measurements. The infield was mucky when it rained, the bathrooms sucked and you were trapped in the infield (and away from your hauler) if there was on track activity. I ended up crewing more races there than any other track, including my very last one, and I cussed it every time we went there. I even got in hot water with ARCA for openly criticizing the track on the ARCA website. As I said, the on track product is good, and I respect the enormous history of the place, but at least in the early 2000's the place was a dump.

    I don't know what the second one is, but I know what it's NOT.

    EuroSpeedway Lausitz is the oval, site of the crash where Alex Zinardi lost his legs.
