I have decided to sell this track and get something else. Braid is about 50% or better... This track comes with everything you need to race... computer, two power supplies, extra moniters, SRT program... needs nothing... ready to roll. Track is up and running now and will continue to use it until sold.

I'm asking $3,500...

Also have parts inventory if wanted for this track that can be negotiated (at raceway cost, not retail) in the deal. JK, Parma, Champion, Pro-Track, some Tuna tires...

If you are a lowballer (not tring to be mean or nothing) I would appreciate you not wasting my time. If you are serious in wanting a good track shoot me a message.
 
Location is in Southwestern VA.

I probably would be interested in doing some trading on a smaller track or a tri-oval... or maybe some big block or big cubic inch smallblock Chevy drag parts...

Just a thought... but I would like to move this before I tear it down that way you can see exactly what you are getting and everyone knows how storage for long period of times does to these tracks

I have a great Dirt bike set up for motocross if that would interest you. Bought two, one for me and one for my daughter. She took an introduction ride and that was the end of it so they are in near perfect condition.
My Yamaha was raced before and still has the Musclemilk placard on the side.
Just an offer. Never hurts to fish with new bait. :)

I would jump on the track because a king is next on my list but I JUST committed to a drag and I have to by all new power supplies for it. I would need 90 days or so to rebuild my buying capital.

Well... It would impress folks if you just left it in your garage. You could tell them you rode it back in the day. LOL.

I'm not much for impressing folks... be my luck someone would talk me into it then I would be in trouble... LOL..

 

Anyways check back in 90 days... the last Iing I had it took me a year to get rid of it because it was stored and I had never assembled it... so I couldn't really say anything about it except I took it apart and stored it. But this one I can say a lot about because it is a great track... I just don't wanna store it at all... rather see someone put it right back together....

 

Anyways if it don't sale by the time you recoop and you are still looking... it will be here...

 

Thanks for the interest.

Well, when I went to measure the track to start moving and setting this King up in its new home this guy's ruler is about 12 foot  shorter than mine.

 

It's for sale again, same as above except I have it all apart now. Fixing to move it to a storage area Sunday, something I didn't want to do...

 

But anyway if anyone's interested in this go back to the top post for the details or send me a message. I might do some trade  for a smaller track or some small of big-block Chevrolet drag parts. Thanks.

This King is still for sale. It is stored in a climate controlled place. Needs a good home instead being in storage. Needs nothing to be up and going. Just don't live in an area that will support this track to justify setting it back up.

One thing you should mention is whether this is a modular track or not. Does the braid tuck down at every joint and does the wiring just plug together? Full modular ready to run tracks are a lot easier to sell .

Sorry, I have just seen your post.

 

I still have the track. It's kinda hard to sell.

 

The braid does tuck down at every joint. The braid ends fasten to the track by small bolts or screws.

 

I love this track and I hate to sell it. If I had a buyer the next few months I would probably sell it, but if not i will just keep it

 

I used to have a tri-oval you made. Maybe trade for one of them if i could find one.

 

Are you still building tracks?

 

Good to talk to you.

 Donn Bryans in Daytona builds all the tracks now. I retired from track building full time in 2002. This is an awesome track, someone should snap it up.
