Middle Georgia Motor Speedway

Post by Cynon on Wed Dec 20, 2017 3:24 am

This track is based on Middle Georgia Motor Speedway, a real short track in Georgia that stopped operating for oval racing in 1986. NASCAR ran nine Grand National races here between 1966 and 1971, and some scenes from Greased Lightning were filmed here. Jimi Hendrix also performed a concert here, but I'm getting off topic...

This version of the track assumes that the track never closed and would still host big-time racing even today. In case anyone's going to complain about inaccuracies to the real track... most of them were intentional and done for style purposes, and since the track really hasn't been operating since 1984, I feel it's understandable. I went overboard with a "Peach State" motif for the track to give it some identity with the peach-colored paint and walls... and it looked way better than I thought it would. Anyone interested in making a more accurate, or a 1960s version of this track is welcome to do so without asking.

The track is banked about 5 degrees in the straights, and 17.70 degrees in the corners. I used onboard footage from a Dodge advert done at this track a few years ago to determine that. Most of the billboards, the track logo (which is pretty accurate), and all but one of the cars in the infield were provided to me by Eric McConnell, the Freeze Peach logo was done by Ceej.

The track holds a full field of 47.
