Fastrax has a new owner. Improvements are planned.

 

Hopefully some new interest will evolve.

I've never visited, but a few of the complaints I've heard are that there is a lack of inventory, lack of pit space, and the braid is nailed to the track creating bumps.

 

Does anyone know if the new ownership has an interest in improving these issues?

I know the man I thought bought it. To be honest I can't see a big improvement taking place.

The track does have finish or brad nails in a few of the corners, due to former owners lack of, lets say, energy to do it right. He devalued the track is what he did.

 

I walked away and sold my stuff because the former owner was just not getting it done. Horefully this will end up well. If not, I think there is another man in waiting who can really make the place go because there will be people to support and lend a hand.

Went by the track last night to speak with the locals, the new owner has cleaned the place up and done some painting that was sorely needed. New lighting is coming and all the work benches cleaned and looking new. I hope he does well.
