I'm with Todd, a gauntlet option line with lazers, a shark pit, and even a BFG2000 (I loved quake). If I'm goin' down, they are all going down with me!!!

BFG2000 was from Doom not Quake.

Speaking of grass, with all of the people coming for the nitro challenge, you may be able to convince one of the fake grass companies to supply some for the infield parts of the track. It would be great free advertisement for them and it would look pro.

My wife is a landscape designer and may have a couple contacts for such things.

Just a suggestion.

I believe one of the conex boxes is stuffed with astro turf.

The astro turf thing was tried at the Silverstate race in Vegas a couple years ago, along with carpet, corrugated sheet metal, wood planks, and what ever other junk they could find, or yea, and can't forget the wind!

I am not talking about astro turf, I am talking about the stuff they use to make putting greens that you see at the home shows. It is extremely durable, multi layered and holds whatever terrain shape you give it. It would be very pricey to purchase but with a high profile event like nitro challenge it may be worth it to cut FF a deal for the free advertisement.

This is not for the track surface, it is for the areas the corner marshals stand. I have seen pictures of the old 1/8 scale track when it had grass and it looks so much nicer IMO. Just another way to set FF apart from the rest.

I hear ya, it does look pimp when done. But honestly, cheap Astro Turf or high dollar putting green, I think it all looks the same from the drivers stand. Of course the easiest way to sell to a business is the word, "free". If you can find the company willing, I don't see why FF would turn it down.

Loved that game too. Hell it was 10 years ago. I can't believe I remembered it.
