The Pit Stop

Great article on Bruton Smith and weather....

a new track is even worth it.  The article states the cost to build a new track is 350 million bucks, 100 Million more than what the Texas track was built for.

Bruton Smith says the track needs 200 million in repairs.  The article states that he could get at least 50 million for track.   That would mean Bruton could spend less than 100 million just for a new track.

Bruton says a new speedway could be built on as little as 500 acres, but the article states the Bristol track is on 674 acres.  I do not see him building a short track if he went with a new racetrack.
