A dragstrip!. OK, here's some background about my area and why I think a strip would succeed in this area. Two towns right next to each other, one with about 35k people, the other with about 27k. Not mention about 8 smaller towns within about 20-25 miles of those two towns, and another town with about 20-30k people in it being about 20 miles away. If these people go want to take it to a track, the closest two tracks are about an hour to an hour and a half away, in opposite directions. These two towns are teeming with fast Mustangs, Camaros, Chevelles, you name it, and even a ton of imports that would more than likely go to a track if there was one closer. The reason I believe there would be enough participants lies within me paying attention to how good the Performance Shop/dyno facility is doing that has been opened here. It's the only one, and has been open since August. They already have a PRO 5.0 driver working there, with the owner being a crew member. They have bought Dallas Mustang's green car, and their daughter should be running it in FFW events (Renegade I think). So I think there would be demand for a track with all the people around here that are buying from the performance shop. That, plus the fact that everyone I talk to that's into cars says they would love a track around here. Well, about 7 or 8 miles outside of each town, (inbetween each town and to the west, like a triangle if you know what I mean) there is an old air force base. It's close enough, but also not close to many houses to disturb. The runways would be perfect. You already have the pavement for the strip itself, and enough pavement for parking and a return road and everything, that it would save you money from having to construct that. All you would need to build is fences, bleachers, concession stand, timing booth, and buy the timing equipment, and build the walls of the strip. I was thinking of just an 1/8 mile, as that's what the other tracks an hour away are, and that's what everyone here talks about. Oh, and people street race here ALL THE TIME!! People are constantly getting put in jail for racing. I know that if one was built, me and almost everyone I know would be there every weekend. The only thing I'm worried about is how to finance it, and what about insurance? What do you guys think of my idea? In my mind, I'm pretty sure it would succeed.
