runline = big circle
infield width = wider than a loaf of bread narrower than a air craft carrier!
carpet type = fuzzy kind
subfloor = wood
paragon ground effects allowed??? too many wa babies wont go anti paragon!

Just stuff like that.

We set the oval up with outside dimensions: 96' x 40'.
Outside lanes were 12' wide, infield was 16' wide and corner width was 14'.
Not sure the runline but someone might have a good number - or maybe this can be figured with these numbers....

CYA!!

Well as eneryone knows the road course layout is a well kept secret and will always be that way. The reason is that no one has any advantage going into the event. I will tell you this it will be fast.

Don't do it, Ken. We will regret that move forever. They would get their tongues tied up just like their throttle finger.

Will anything be done this year to try and prevent the track from deteriorating (bumps and carpet wear). Just wondering as it sounded like quite a problem last year. Hope to make it for the first time there this year.

Runline?

Ok, from the information given for the size of the track here is an image of last years layout. There are 2 runline shown, 1 which is pretty much in the middle more or less It shows a distance of 191.96 feet. and Runline 2 which might be more representive of how most people would drive this layout. It shows a runline of 185.10 feet. Now with runline 2 it is shown approximately 2 feet from the outside line and 2 feet from the inside apex of the corner. Hope this helps everybody out.

Henry

The image is not the greatest, If anybody would like one, let me know.
Just an up-date- I know have another image showing a 3rd runline being approximately 1 foot from the outside and inside at the apex, having a runline of 183.38 feet.
