Although, if you opened a "permanent indoor" track in the Inland Empire (Ontario, Chino, Rancho Cucamonga), I'd be there at least 2 to 3 times per week!

Oh Yah!!!!!!

Now that gas is cheap, I'd be willing to make the trek to OC at least twice a month if not more for just practice alone. I hope the traction is good.

I live out in vegas but would definatly come out there once a month maybe more if the gas prices stay low. Its worth the drive if I know it wont be rained out. Indoor onroad would be awesome!!

I'm not sure who the thread starter is, but it is official now that OC will have an indoor asphalt track with those dimentions given earlier by the thread starter.

Oh ya...I heard Robert talking about getting the space next door to the dirt track. There will be double doors leading next door on the wall heading towards the bathrooms. He said it would be asphalt and I think it would be pretty darn good.

We still have the carpet we used in Oceanside that measures 36x88. Maybe we can roll it out over the asphalt one week out of every month?? The CRC Fast Trak carpet is still new...it only has 3 practice days (not full race days) on it. We would just have to heavily police people on that track to not have any loose screws that would tear up the carpet.

Maybe race days could be Tuesday and Saturday nights like the old SoCal used to be??

Great News. I only live 10 miles from track. Cris I heard the track is going to be a little smaller than offroad track. I think its maybe 5-10 ft shorter in length and maybe 10 ft wider. Still should be good.

70 X 65 is a plot, yea; but the 70' part might be just a wee bit short compared to old SoCal, so I whipped out a 50' tape and went to town outside... and damn! It's still cold!

If I remember correctly, the old SoCal was more than likely at least 85 feet by almost 50... but remember that track had banking which effectively allowed for the mod-motored car speeds of a slightly longer straight.

Don't get me wrong; an indoor, asphalt track of at least 70 X whatever would still be more than pretty cool; indeed it would, sir, but it might be just short of what the length of SoCal's straights were.

I would still run there, of course. I need the therapy. :-)~

Squier, you are very close with your dimensions. I believe SoCal's onroad track size was 90x50. I think Slim once told me it was 100' from the restroom wall to the end of the track. There was about 8-10' wide walkway leaving 90-92' of track. Regardless, having another indoor onroad track would be great.

Socal was 80 feet end to end with the banking. It was 50 feet wide.

Robert's track will be 80' feet long by 70' wide with a long sweeper and lots of room for infield sections. The dimensions have increased due to better use of space and no real need for both sides of the track to have walkways, only one side. It will be real sweet to race indoor again.
