Snellville, GA, an eastern suburb of Atlanta.

I am told the sections are indivually braided.

BTW, it is not 100% certain, but this track is believed to have been made by Tunkel.

I hope this track will stay in the south somewhere. We are losing too many tracks.

They have some places down here in Saraland you could probably get fairly cheap.

I have raced on this design both in the east and west. This is an exceptional design for many different classes in the lower to middle ranges including Retro. Maybe a slightly "better" orange. For an affordable one track plus dragstrip raceway... this would be great.

I think I might have asked this question in the past, but is this the same track that was at Electric City?

 

Regardless, I'm pulling for you, Ralph!

Thanks, Greg.

 

I know some racers preferred the King, but we always went straight for that Paperclip at EC. We'd spend hours on it.

 

Again, would love to see Ralph keep it in the Southeast. But all we can do is just hope it finds a good home.
