How big is the track?

Looks like a great facility ........... depending upon my schedule, I'm sure we could make at least one as well.
As we grow older we realize that it is less important to have lots of friends and much more important to have real ones.

The plan is to plow very low and keep the corners wide.
AWESOME! I drove by on my way to work and got very very excited! I can't wait to get out on that track! I think there is a great bunch of guys behind it that will make for some great racing. Also with the SLEDS crew on board and the F340 Money class it should bring some great competition.

There is talk of getting some sponsor money into the classes and offering some small pots for the guys to aim for on Sunday.
Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary… that’s what gets you.

12 miles East of Moorhead, MN on US Highway 10.

It is actually located at the intersection of US Highway 10 and Minnesota State Highway 9.

Here's the track dim's guys:

Approximately 1420' race line. 16 degree banking. 350' straights and 210' between the straights. The only wall is on the front straight and BRRP was informed of the bale walls and wasn't concerned to get the amount of bales required for safe racing.

Keep it coming Boy's. BRRP wants to be a sustainable Sunday afternoon destination. I'm working on class specific sponsors for end of the end high points. SLEDS is SO on board with getting the ROLA classes a place to run.

Thanks for the input and I hope to see you all at the Detroit Lake Water Carnival Parade (July 18 - got two "candy throwers" to help).

Spread the word!

Class sponsor research is going well. I have a few F/M area businesses interested. The goal is to have two or three classes with individual season ending purses. I'll need to get the race bill developed before I'm able to close the deals.

Keep the word on the street.

This is great news for the local racers. Fargo Moorehead metro area has 200,000 people. How many more will get the vintage racing bug now that the track is so close. Can't wait to see this whole show up an running. Good job. 2utp

Hopefully they'll be up and running over the Christmas - New Years break.
I would really like to go see the races sometime this winter.
