Bottom post of the previous page:

I think it would be too many cars on a fast, banked track.

It would be Richmond on steroids.

Would have to see what the track will be like in reality. If it is high banked and full throttle, then yeah no. But if it's slower then it would be quite the show.

John Hunter Nemechek takes the final checkered flag at the Auto Club Speedway 2 mile oval. He was just 10 days old when the track hosted its first event on the 21st of June 1997, a NASCAR West race won by Ken Schrader.

NASCAR has finalized plans to sell some land around the speedway,so it seems like the project will finally get under way soon. NASCAR expects to return to the venue in 2025.

At least the track will be reborn as another track. Way to many tracks here in the States are going away

True.
