    Maybe it needed new pavement to begin with.

    This racetrack is unique and used to be the hardest to secure tickets to. The owners have done some wild to imagine things to bring in folks. H and I, among maybe two dozen other Johnson City MOA Rally attendees paid to do hot laps for a reasonable price, the profits going to local charities. The pace car would go as fast as the slowest bike. We avoided the group with backfiring F650

    The grin on her face after five fast as you can go laps as she entered pit lane says it all... “ let’s do it again!!”

    Then there was this:



    My take in this part of TN is it creates a lot of needed jobs and no local short track can create the same environment. Coal country and Appalachia’s struggling economy is right there.

    The pavement is concrete now and a thick layer of sawdust is between concrete and overlay.

    Watching the Astrodomes concrete floor prepped for baseball, football, rodeo, motorcycle races, and such year after year made this type of change a no big deal. I’m sure many of the behemoth multi sport stadiums still do this as well. The NRG Texans stadium that replaced the dome may still be using the pallet system of rotating grass fields, though it has been a source of injuries and lawsuits

    The night race at Bristol was known a few years ago as the most difficult sports event ticket to get; even harder than a Packers game or the Super Bowl. The stadium will seat over 160,000 people and the crowd noise drowns out the noise from the cars. NASCAR is trying to attract a younger and more diverse audience and this race is a part of that effort.

    As a teenager we lived 150 miles away and went to Bristol for the drag races in Thunder Alley. Worse places to live if you like loud motor sports.

    Today’s race is at The Echo Park in Texas- Circuit of the Americas. The pre-race show had quite a tour of the facility. Looks like quite a place.
    Oh yeah, it is being run mostly in the rain.

    Kevin,


    Thanks for the heads up! It is listed as American Flat Track on Comcasts guide.

    For some reason it wouldn't take the record request unless I selected "new AND REPEAT episodes". Maybe these are not this years races or because they are shown a week after the event (although it doesn't matter to me).


    Times on your list are Eastern.
