Not a huge deal but a step in the right direction. They milled and resurfaced from the concrete launching pad to the end of the 1/8th. I hear it is very smooth and the traction is good. Our local track is getting better every year. https://www.nhra.com/news/2022/new-asphalt-laid-down-cedar-falls-motorsports-park-nhra-member-track

Our local track just reopened. The $ they get from entry fees are going back for improvements like a new timing system. Right now it is just arm drop starts. @ $20 to race it may take awhile but its a start. $25K for the system.

good to hear & see a few are coming back or doing improvements
we used to have like 26 tracks here, we're down to like 7 now
may lose one of them, Sacramento Raceway
it has been up for sale, for a while now, but pretty damn pricey thou

Noise complaints & "building encroachment",
old story new location

Stupid people buy a house by a racetrack (or airport etc.)
that's been in constant operation since the early 50's
& then complain about the noise :jackoff:
do their due diligence 1st maybe, might help :blah:

Our Firebird raceway here in Idaho is always getting upgrades, I am happy to see that others are also.
Being 15 minutes from my house I go so much as I can and run my Coronet. Its not a drag car but its fun.
