Default Drag strip opportunity in West Virginia

If you always wanted to operate a hilltop track in the mountains, here's your chance.

The track's scenic location.

Looks great to me in a romantic way. Back in the sixties and early seventies it would have been too cool. Today, a money pit.

Cool looking place but when I go to Google Earth that doesn't look much like it unless they've done a LOT of earth moving since 2019.

I don't think the low population is a problem as long as there is an above average ratio of racers to non racers.

I have seen a couple in car camera videos going down that track at one of the 2 events they had.. and it is by far the roughest track I have ever seen.. they parked mining equipment on it for all the years it sat vacant.. I wish for all the WV racers this would be a solution to not having a track anywhere in the state..

That looks like an old open-pit mine to me.
