If I remember correctly, Cleetus said this was a 3/8 (0.375) mile track. So that's 2.66 (repeating 6) laps to equal one mile. A 12 second lap (times 2.66) would be a 32 second mile. 60 mph is equivalent to 1 mile per minute. So half of that time would be an average speed of 120 mph (or 1 mile per 30 seconds). Cars were averaging about 112 mph! That's really fast on this track.

So how many of you went on google earth and measured the track? Then did the math to see if 12 second laps were possible? (yeah I'm sad individual, lol) Inside line on the track is roughly 0.32 miles, outside line 0.37 miles. A 12 second lap is way possible at 100mph in the straightaways. Yikes, Guys doing that have balls of steel...

Hey Cleetus I’ve had this idea in my head for quite a while now and was wondering if it would even work on a car. It’s basically having a procharger and a turbo on a v8 (or any other motor) and seeing if it would run. I don’t know if they can work together but it seems like it should. IDK if I’m crazy but I’ve never seen anything with a setup like this. If anyone else can tell me plz cause I think this would be sick! (Btw I said this to Itsjusta6 in his comment section but I’m just asking other car IRgosrs)

Cleetus, you should have figure 8 races at the track . I grew up watching them , they are a Amazing , and drew huge crowds at my local track growing up ! That would be Amazing ! Best of Luck to you guys with the track. Check out some youtube videos of Anderson Speedway ( Anderson Indiana) . That Track is similar to yours ( a little Smaller) but they have figure 8's all the time along with other different classes of racing as well.

You forgot to ask what you should ask every old person that has done what you want to do 😅 "if you could go back what would you have done differently?" And hope you frame those plans in glass or something and have them displayed though the main entrance or something. Need to like have a Hall of fame as you walk through that'd be cool

Cleetus retrofit those pole lights with LED fixtures. 400 watt LED would be equivalent to a 1000 watt metal halide. That's a 60% reduction in energy costs to run those lights. Also add some lightning protection! Let er eat!
