The X in the center of Anderson speedway is pretty nice place to be during Little5

I wouldn't either. However the notion of a figure 8 being promoted conjurers up a feeling of "hillbillyism" to which inevitably bleeds over to the circle track side.

Don't you get that same feeling when you see a wood-grain or camo-wrapped Thunder Car? It's already a fine line but a promotor's gonna try a lot of things to fill the stands; school bus races, demo derbies, watermelon seed spit-for-distance...

There will not be a Figure 8 Track. More details to come, but we are planning on having an incredible inaugural season! The best Figure 8 Racing will still be at the Indianapolis Speedrome!

Good luck to you, glad to see something is going on out at that fairgrounds. Seems like they have the space needed to do a great facility.

Great news! It's nice to see a race track opening instead of closing. We certainly need another great track in this area.

Thanks for joining the Indiana Open Wheel forum. Can't wait to hear and see what you all have planned for the Marion County Fairgrounds on Indy's east side. Hope to see some pictures of the construction progress of the new track. Good luck .
P.S. Let us know when a track website is up and running.

We were supposed to run tqs there but the weather had other plans this year. Bringing any dirt in for the surface? They never would let us work it any before we ran there the last few years.
