Default Quaker City Motorsports Park

Anyone know if they gound the track smooth and taken all the bumps out of it. Have they had any test runs on this year?

Supposedly they have had Jim Head in to look at grinding it and are working out a plan to do it.

The original opening day of 4/16 was pushed back to 4/30 because of all the rain preventing them from doing required work on the facility. From looks of the weather they may push it back even farther. Rain most every day this month and forcast shows rain everyday for next 10 days. The ground in this area is so saturated it will need a week of no rain to even consider pulling a rig off the asphault. Even the hillsides just squish when you walk on them because there is so much water laying.

New release in the track forum on the website. Basically says timing system done, tower is done, waiting on EPA for OK to open newly remodeled concession stand, entrance/exit is done and working the track this week. Complete scrape, power washing and start prepping. No mention of a grind or any other work to the surface at this time.

Without a grind and polish on the track I dont think you are going to see to many Q8/Pro Mod cars then.

I am all for upgrading the timing system, track facilities such as the concession stands, bleachers, rest rooms but most of this is for the spectators!!!! I think it is great that Norm and his people are doing these upgrades!!!! Racers are looking for a smooth safe racetrack to run on and without racers you dont have spectators/fans. JMO

As long as they pave the return road, I'll be happy. That thing used to rattle dzuses off my car, it was so damn rough... The track wasn't too bad at all.

The first Pro Mod race is May 14th and I predict a full field . Regardless of what does or does not happen to the track racers will show up , maybe not all of the regulars but cars will be there .
