New aerial view coming soon!!!
Over one half mile of twists, turns, chicanes, sweepers and intense elevation changes. No gentle rises here - this track is designed with the driver in mind and will test the tuning ability of most any good pit boss. Even the oval sits on a 25 foot elevation change. The left hander at the end of the long straight? It's a 45 foot uphill change in only 100 foot of driving distance. It's earned the nickname "Money Maker". After passing through the right handed "Horseshoe" you dive into the big sweeper the farthest point from the pits. It is affectionately known as the "Toilet Bowl". A 35 foot drop to the bottom, with a 50 foot rise back to the top. Next to no banking as you go through with the pedal hammered down. Bring extra shorts! And the final left hander before heading to the white Start / Finish line? Bring your best passing skills, nerves of steel, and a true knowledge of driving lines and owning the inside line.
Combine that with a lighting system specifically engineered for our track for incredible night time racing. Throw in the best and most consistent weigh scale you'll find at any track. An AMB timing system, radio and PA broadcasting, remote results monitoring via your laptop, free wi-fi in the pits, an oversized hot pit with 2 grids for lineups, and a huge pit area. And the final factor: one of the best staffs you'll ever experience racing with.
All of that, with a strict adherence to WKA rules, and a friendly club atmosphere. We put the fun back in racing, and the track will put the skill in your driving and tuning ability!
Addition of driving lane to right side of track heading into the Hairpin at the end of the short straightaway. This should allow for a better setup to execute a pass as you either exit this hairpin, or give you the momentum to pass for the next turn, the Money Maker (seen below).
Addition of 14' to the inside of the "Money Maker" at the end of the long straightaway. Lighter gray is the new addition, with the dark gray being the original track layout. Note the rubber from the right rear on the existing portion of the track. Stick it to the inside and hold on, and be on the watch for the driver taking the outside on your right to show up on your left very quickly!
Easily the biggest change of all. Original track (dark gray with rubber) laid in 2005. First concrete runoff (somewhat beige color with rubber marks) was added in 2006 to allow some extra room. The new addition (light gray and dark gray patch that follows) will allow a clear shot drag race for two drivers who come through the corner together (previously a non-thought to most drivers). The two additions were poured on separate days, thus the difference in color. In time, the concrete should all match. The Start/Finish is designated by the white line and the orange cone on the track near the bottom of the hill before the next left hander.
Another shot of the Final Turn. From this point on, it's a drag race.
