  • Will Thunder Valley be added to the Mid-West Circle?

    Personally,

    Due to car count alone Drag Week should return to the center of the US. With Tulsa Raceway Park Closing, does it look like Thunder Valley in Noble,OK will be added to the 4 tracks in 2012?

      I sure hope it stays in the middle. Having 1000 less miles getting to starting point (vs. Muncie, In -2009) was nice.

        messing around on Google maps gives some options and also shows how much it sucks there might not be a place to race in Tulsa.

        I did

        Great Bend
        HPT
        Gateway raceway
        noble ok
        great bend

        1300ish miles with the biggest run bieng from gateway to noble at 550 miles on the interstate.

        I can't seem to come up with 5 days of races on 1/4 mile tracks that have a chance of holding the unlimited cars.

        I also tried

        great bend
        noble
        ennis texas
        hpt
        great bend

        it also comes up with a looong day from ennis to hpt.

        There is a new all concrete 1/4 mile in crandal texas that would put the run from crandall tx to hpt at 438 miles.

        Being from Tulsa I am hoping for the best but expecting the worse when it comes to the track, there still seems to be pieces of the story missing that I am sure will be uncovered by the end of the month.

            Topeka
            Kearney
            Great Bend,
            KCIR.
            Topeka.

            830 miles.
            just think of the crazy places Frieburger could send us with a budget of 400 miles to use........KCIR to Topeka might take us WAY WAY WAY out into BFE.

                              Here is a completely different idea. Bakersfield, Sacramento, Redding, Sears Point, Bakersfield. According to Google maps, this is less miles than this years Drag Week.
