Probably more runoff into the reservoir from the nearby quarry than from the track. Loved that track. Raced a few amateur days there during Nationals.

Holy crap what a bunch of whiners! Go back and watch some of the races from the 80s and see some passes. Maybe google Bradshaw and Chicken. So it was a little dirty, he’s got one coming to him and that’s the way it goes.
