Thanks for responding. Just checked my building. This track is a few feet too long. My building is 49 feet.

I was up above it. Now I'm down in it.

Paul,
 
I considered that. My building is really narrow and will have a dragstrip on the opposite wall.

My history on this track goes back to Gary King who apparently had and closed King Raceway in Florida. What I am lacking is where Mr King brought the track from and where it went before that.  So basically I am missing 1965-1989.  Anyone know how to get in touch with Mr King? Or does anyone that raced there remember where he went to get this King?
