  • DW 2013 Track Guesses.

    A few thread have discussed where people would like to see DW 2013 be held. So I used http://www.staginglight.com/links/trackfinder.html and goodle maps to just plot some tracks to see what I can come up with. Not sure if all these tracks can hold sub 7 second cars at 200+, but figured I would take a stab at it. Knowing the middle of the country is making car count numbers climb I started around the Mississippi. Here is my guess.

    Byron Raceway, 7287 North River Road, Byron, IL 61010

    Lucas raceway park, 10267 E Us Highway 136Indianapolis, IN 46234-9089 (or what ever it is called now)

    Beech Bend, 798 Beech Bend Road, Bowling Green, KY 42101

    Gateway Motorsports Park 700 Raceway Boulevard, Madison, IL 62060

    Anyone else want to plot out tracks? Seems like HotRod as browsed these threads before, maybe we can influence them.
    Again this is just a guess, and I have not idea if these are viable or not.

      It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

            Of course we are all going to want DW to come close to home. The regional weeks with a nationwide finals would be cool but a logistical nightmare and probably more than hotrod wants to afford. Hats off to the guys that drove / trailered 1200+ miles or shipped cars across the big pond, that's an enormous financial and time comittment. Rumors are swirling that Milan maybe going belly up - that would really T me off, but like so many other things, I have absolutely no control over it.
            There's always something new to learn.

              im game for somethin further north if they want..i just hate to see it much either way to east or west.that would just be too hard on one set of coastal guys.although,i do wish they could find a route to include denver...slow,but an awesome place to race i bet.

                Another full day East puts us in transport mode rather than trailering ourselves, which in turn changes the whole mini trailer deal into none or a rental neither of which is desirable from my point of view. Its wait and see for me as I know it'll never come West.

                  That is about as South as it can get. But there is a track I ran at in Edinburg, Tx. I think it is still NHRA
                  Drag Week 2012 (wet paint and no transmission but finished) Drag Week 2013 Daily Driver finished in middle of pack (again) Drag Week 2014 #56 of 126 Daily Drivers. (getting closer to the 32)

                    I like Nesbo's idea being its close to home (as we all would like to be). Never been to Byron, Joliet I've heard can be a pain in the rear for tech, never been there cept for pics one year. Been to Indy many times but havent made it past the lights. Bowling Green is great and we havent been to GateWay since 05. Switch Joliet for Cordova and its a deal!!! Tracks that are a stones throw apart dont matter as you know they always find a route that ends up as a drunk crow fly's.
                    The idea of hitting tracks that we hav'nt been to has always been a good idea that alot of people like. So an idea of mine also:
                    Bowling Green Ky
                    Bristol Tn
                    Z Max DD in 2 lanes and the rest in the other 2
                    Crossville tn
                    Bowling Green 1050 miles MapQuest


                    I just realized Joliet was'nt part of it ????? I'm still not back to earth.

                          1000 miles according to Google, but that gives them extra room to run us in circles through the backwoods. haha
