Just a test...seriously.

This should get some people's blood pumping...Gerald Ing, long-time supporter of Build The Track!, came out and did some 60-Ft tests on the existing asphalt at KRP. This is a VERY short clip of one of the launches.
We wanted to see how the ground would hold up, and how much rocks would be thrown around. He wanted to test for Maui so it was a win-win. It was the first drag race car ever launched at KRP. I'm sure it won't be the last if we get our way.
The surface is extremely rough, wide enough for only one car at a time, but it's doable for testing and possible burnout competitions at the moment. Please keep in mind that this was only for a 60-foot comp test and to see whether it's even a credible idea. Gerald also generously donated to the "Asphalt Fund" for KRP.
We're trying to support everyone, and we're working with what we have, so please show us some love as we work towards getting EVERYONE racing again! Mahalo!
