AHHHHHHHHH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS THREAD! I wish i saw this sooner! EJaws, might be my display name, but Earnhardt, is my real one. This is the greatest thing ever.

You should try checking out Elko Speedway, and maybe the old Minnesota State Fair racetrack

Not a big racing guy (although I do like Formula 1) but your work here is fantastic, clearly well thought on and explained, easy to understand and presented on a beautifull way.

Looking forward to see more tracks

Doing something a little meta for you guys, it's pretty quick and not as textured as others, but you get the idea. So 2 and a half years ago, I did this concept of a super speedway oval track that has nearly a mile of front stretch, with big turns connecting them. I always liked the idea, cause I also did an infield road course so Indy car and stuff could race there.

The thing is that the scale is wrong. With the widths I used, it was probably around a mile long track. So I basically redid the whole thing keeping the style pretty similar. So the oval layout is the same, the infield circuit has some similar elements, and a completely redone infield course based on tracks like EuroSpeedway Lausitz and Homestead. The small loop on the back stretch would be a small half mile oval for local series. The stands have lots of shade, and wind turbines to keep it all green, because realistically it would be near or on a Native American reservation. Not pictured is probably a big casino that we split parking with. 

 

One idea I had during this thread was a storage bunker ran by Seminole Speedway Inc. to half the trip of haulers when on the west coast. See we'd lease out space and keep the cars safe in storage. The garages would be open to any changes they'd need. I think tornadoes are terrifying cause they're random and stupid, so to cover our asses from damage loss from an inconvenient cyclone, the cars would be in a better position.

 

I scouted out some space east of Oklahoma City, cause ideally the Tulsa market would be one to draw from. Route 66 is south of the main highway, so I went ahead and rebranded Oklahoma Super Speedway to Speedway 66. 

 

I think that's about it!

Great work once again! Racing should use these tracks. Excited to see what you come up with next!
