When the first pair of cars goes down the track you can believe it. Otherwise its on the list with the track opening on Long Island at Calverton. That's been a 15 year rumor now I think.

With all the track equipment and timing systems gone, someone will need to spend a lot of time and money to make the attempt, AFTER purchasing everything from the current owners.

The jet drier was kept for the road course. Everything else is or will be gone shortly. They do have more jet engines if someone wants to build their own truck like they did.

Island bought a Tenant machine, they had two at E-Town. I think Wall Stadium bought the other one, or maybe they bought the blower truck. I know they got something.........

Wish we had one of those tractors like RT66 and some other tracks have, those things are awesome!
