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
do their due diligence 1st maybe, might help
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.
