STP 400 Race

Posted: April 25, 2012 in Miscellaneous

Got some tickets to run out to the STP 400 Nascar race.  Went along with a friend to check out the track before they start tearing it apart to add a road course.  Got some pictures along the way.  I do have to say I’m a little disappointed at the final road course design.  It seems that the goal was not to create a fun to drive infield but only to reduce the loss of RV spots for Nascar events.  The shape itself seems to be more of a paperclip design and adding 3 hairpin turns  and running 3/4 of the oval = a road course.  I’ll wait til I can drive it before giving final judgement as it might be fun to drive.  Construction is supposedly started and it will be operational by fall this year for Grand Am racing.  I will go see that race in person if I can.
