    Indiana asphalt oval

    Would there be any interest in putting together a race at the Indianapolis speedrome? Talked to the owner and if we get enough interest we can make this happen if he can fit us in the schedule.

    I think it is. It looks like a sweet track from the freeway .

    No, that would be the Velodrome (bicycle track.)

    We ran karts there back in the day and had coverage on then, fledgling network ESPN2 (maybe you heard of it.)

    Speedrome is a flat small 1/4 mile paved oval (and figure 8) on the southside of Indy. You can find videos on Youtube from there.
    The Indiana LO206 champ karts have raced there for several years now.

    Jordan,
    Have you looked into the old Burris Fast Track near Vincennes?
    It still exists but I have no idea what the current situation is on that track.
    Maybe Kurt Burris or Capt. Nimo can answer that.

    There is also the oval at NCMP that goes unused
    Mt. Lawn, Anderson, Salem, and others have held races in the not too distant past.

    ...and I think they are currently running karts and champs at the Sportsdrome in Jeffersonville.

    It was a different time for sure.

    I've often wondered what it would take to put something like that together today...
    One class, a short 30 minute or hour program, all taped live with minimal editing, and broadcast at a later date (week later or so.)
    Sounds perfect for MavTV. All we need is a big sponsor to pay for the air time.

    Karts on a figure 8 that sounds interesting.

    ^ I wouldn't put it past some racers -- some Saturday nights end up looking more that way.
