Nice track and a fair price at $2000, very fair if you consider building a track like this.  I would probably run the other direction;   Running to the right is american to me and it would give you the wide curve at the end of the long straight and not the hairpin cure.   4 1/2 lane spacing is big plus over 4.   Big plus.   

 

You build one and you'll see what a nice deal this is.

Rockingham Park in Salem, NH was a one mile horse track. It closed down about five years ago & numerous buildings are planned for the former site. Rockingham Speedway is located in North Carolina. I only wish the track was coming to NH.  :)

I've sold too much stuff to trust the "be backs".  you pass up a cash sale because somebody says they will "be back".   The "be backs"  never show up and the seller loses a definite sale.       You have to be ready to move on a good deal.

And you wouldn't "trust him" with $200?  Seems both did not take a man's word.  :)  A simple tiny down payment would mean you have a race track!  :)
