Solves that mystery. Looking at that hump, it could easily be taken out by spending a day adjusting the legs and raising or lowering corners slightly as needed. There was no hump in it when it was built.

So ..... Is the track for sale the Grandstand from Abbeville or the Kingleman from "parts unknown, weight unknown"?

The seller told me he used pictures of a similar track because he didn't keep any when he had it set up or he lost them.  He doesn't believe there is water damage but he is going to take more pictures and send them and I will pass them along here.

Does anyone want to bring that track to us here in Ventura CA for a fee? Maybe someone that has the time. Willing to pay well for a good job.

Scott,

 

Raced on it for many years at Slots of Fun - it's a great track...

That looks a lot like the track that was used for the one -off  "Southern Shootout" retro race, at a place between Kingsport and Johnson City TN

Look at the bottom side of some sections  ... especially the section with the lap counter.  Track builders usually sign their work.
