Leave it alone as is and slap some of those mudder tires on the cars and lets have the Sand Drag Nationals!

No one can ever accuse Bruton of being afraid to spend his money if he wants something.

Yup! And the big plus side of this is that spectators get to see the racing action from even further away from the track!

anyone know what is at the end? some road? looks like they can asphalt a few miles before getting a destruction gravel filled net system. You think the timing towers are at 1320 or 1000? Look kind of short. I mean it looks down hill than back up hill to stop, which is always a good idea for numbers, but sure seems like they can have a Gainseville type shutdown 3/4 of a mile if they want.

The "Strip" ends at I-15. There is sand/pea gravel a net and some barriers. Looks like the shut down area is about 2500 ft past the end. Yes it does go up hill. No they could not make it longer without moving I-15.

- Or they could put an on ramp from the track to the Interstate as long as it wasn't metered.

Don't give them any more ideas, if you haven't driven from downtown out to the strip lately you would know.
