All four new concrete lanes have been poured.

Will not take LVP very long to grade and pave the asphalt portion of the track.

i was told a new 770 ft concrete pad was placed....but that includes the burn out box...so you are looking at least 1/8 mile of concrete which what it was.

Just one step away from pro wrestling and monster trucks.

But its okay to have 800 people standing on a starting line for a small tire race that actually facilitates multiple crashes? Talk about a circus. Yes, there is an element of showmanship and entertainment in drag racing. At least here it'll be done with some safety and sanity.

Lanes 3 and 4 look very green.

I still believe that NHRA should allow racers on site to test on Thur.
