This is Steve Sawtelle's track. A really fun track to drive.

Default Thanks for the photo

I contacted Steve to make him aware the link was not working, and tried to find an image myself but have not heard back from him yet.

Thanks again and Happy New Year.

This track runs from the hear corner of the main straight (in this photo) past the drivers stations to the checkered podium you see in the background...Clockwise.

The track runs clockwise, from R to L looking from the driver's stations.
