And fans who have seen the new Gresham Motorsports Park (ex Peach State) will be expecting more from other tracks.
Stay tuned for info on Needmore. I followed the directions on the website last week, and it leads to a nice house, with a pond and a 'no fishing' sign. Saw no signs of construction of a track in the area.
