The proposed dragstrip and the airport are NOT the same location. The dragstrip was previously a strip mine

If the state or counties were going to invest money, they should have purchased Kanawha Valley Dragway. The infrastructure was already there plus alot more people to draw from and close the 4 lane rt 35 now.

This track is the punchline to the joke of mountaintop removal mining. In this place they faked building a dragstrip. In other places they build a ballfield. Unfortunately, it's a facade and they never really give good access and it's never finished; they dump it on the county to sink taxpayer dollars in. If you read about the track you'll see they have to share the road with the mining company.

King Coal.

Kind of reminds me of the track at London KY.
You go through the Daniel Boone Nat Forest to reach it.
