Hi,

 

How many sections and what are the longest lengths? I ask as I have a 5'x10' trailer (VNose) 6.5' tall. I am wondering if this will fit in it.

 

Thanks

 

Andy N.

Scott,

I'm glad to see it found a home. It's a real nice track to run on.

If the sale goes through OK, please post where it's headed.

I would have paid $3,500.00 and it was only 20 minutes from my house.

It was good to meet you, Scott. Thanks for the track.

 

For those that are curious, Jerry and Jon Toussaint purchased it, and it's now up and running in my basement in Ringwood, IL, about 10 minutes north of where Raceworld in McHenry was. It fit nicely in my basement along with my Gerding tri-oval that came from Nashville, IL.

Yeah, as soon as I saw it, I contacted Will Brinkley about getting it for a little test track!

 

Man, what a deal!

You got our old oval. Cool!  

It used to be in St. Louis then a guy in Nashville bought it. We raced it a few times there but then he sold it. Now maybe it is time to take a road trip to Chicagoland.
