OK, what does the track look like in Oval configuration?


What does the changeover entail?

You are SO right, the flat track is a real challenge but once you get the rhythm it's a lot of fun.



The infield and "Quad-Oval are a replica of Charlotte Motor Speedway.  To covert the track you remove the last part of the "Quad-Oval"  (two sections I think) and attach two curve sections that hook into the rest of the infield which is already in place.
