I guess the key word is "Main areas". I thought it would have been deeper considering how easy it floods there on regular days.

Royal Purple Raceway suspends racing to help with hurricane relief efforts
SEPTEMBER 1, 2017

Quote:
BAYTOWN, Texas (Sept. 1) — Royal Purple Raceway, site of the annual NHRA SpringNationals, will suspend all drag racing activities through the end of the year to help in Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Utilizing its gigantic footprint in the Houston suburb of Baytown, Royal Purple Raceway will become a temporary storage facility for cars, trucks, boats and construction equipment destroyed by the largest recorded storm in U.S. history.

Graham Rahal and Courtnery have pledged to donate his winnings from Watkins Glen this weekend to Race4Houston fund! Very cool gesture!
