Runner Notes

A perfectly flat track.

Description

This old track was around back when NASCAR kept to it's of moonshine running routes of trying to stay one step ahead of the law. It's been 50 years (1968) since the last race was held there and a forest has grown up around the track. There are plenty of relics to check out along the way.
