    Default Any known ifo on charlestown,indiana speedway comming alive again

    Heard a rumor that charlestown speedway in indiana was opening up again. Someone said that they was moving dirt around at what is now podium 1.

    Default Charlestown Speedway

    Went by there yesterday and they were indeed moving dirt. Can't tell what they are doing yet. Couldn't get anyone to come to the fence to talk to me so I could ask them what their plans were for the track.

    Try this link... http://z4.invisionfree.com/Figure_8_...iew=getnewpost

    It does sound like the plan is to bring the track back... but no details on whether late models will be in the mix this summer.

    I went to the track yesterday and there is now a dirt oval there. From the fence (pretty far away) it's hard to tell but it looks like they just put the dirt and the banking right over where the old pavement track was. Rumor has it that the pavement is still under there.
    I'll try to attach some pictures that I took while I was there.

    Okay. I couldn't get the attachment feature to work so I just put these up on my website.
    These were all taken from the road which it looks like would be the turns 1 and 2 end of the track. From the angle we were, it was hard to get a read on how long the straightaways were. I believe the old pavement track (and it was actually dirt before it was paved) was 1/3 mile.

    the place is now called podium 1 and if you search it on the net there is a web site for them and they have a sch. for gocarts claiming a 1/5th mile track. but have also heard there looking for a promoter to have stock car racing there. i know a guy who has worked for the fairgrounds motor speedway, charlestown speedway, louisville speedway, asa and indy raceway park is interested in helping them out he is also involved with another track at this time in s e ky. lets all keep our fingers crossed we need a good dirt track in southern ind.
