Beautiful track that will never see a race as the property is in foreclosure now i think.....DIRT is the most fun to watch............
    We race down at florence speedway on saturday nights. Are you talking about the "country club" racing place they started building 5 years ago or so? I guess they never finished. That place was beautiful but expensive.

    I remember watching the dirt races at bristol and that would be awesome to see again

    Glad to see there are race fans here.

    Cant wait for the eldora race. I have owned sprint cars for 20yrs. I have had some great drivers drive for us. Tim Keading,Jac Haudendschild,Kenny Jacobs,Dean Jacobs,Lee Jacobs,Jeremey Campbell. Also raced at the bristol race as a mechanic, not our car. Racing has been apart of our family for 40yrs.All Dirt.

    Dogs and Dirt go well together!! I had alot of fun when we put that dirt on Bristol. My good friend the late Jeff Byrd had me go buy 5 old junker car and we put dirt wheels and tires on them for run in cars. Me and my old motor grader operator would turn the lights on in the infield and race each other i had a big LTD and he had a black crown vic we had a ball and would learn where we needed to work on the track from driving on it. About as much legal fun as you could have and get paid for it! We have a good dirt track about 50 mins from home at Bulls Gap that is where Scott Bloomquist learned to drive as well as many others.

    You wouldn't be referring to Bloomer's cockiness/ego would you?? I wish that they would start a series for the cup drivers on the dirt. Question is what would they be driving, sprint, late model, outlaw mod, or big block mod?
