Default New Utah track?

A group of racers approached the Price Utah county commissioner's with the proposal of a new NHRA Div. 7 track.
Price, Utah is 87 miles south of Salt Lake and 64 miles north of I-70.
With all the negative happenings and track closures, maybe there is hope for racers in the west?
The kicker, Price is at 5600 feet of elevation.

Sure hope this happens. We have been to Price to shoot in long range competitions. Nice area. Met lots of nice people. Lots of wide open space.

I googled the town. Looks like a fun place with a prehistoric museum (ancestors) and yes places to stay if needed. The racers will be like a Woodstock scene invading the town. Good for the area's income I bet. Half the tracks we race at in division 7 are altitude adjusted. Rearend gears are stacked like cord wood out here.

The town has a great following for circle track racers. We or I should say the "$" would be welcomed as well. Kind of like the old days at Douglas Wyo.
