Saw this article in our local news today: http://www.kbtx.com/...-488662631.html

 

Here's some pics of the speedway at the moment. Not much left.

They're just doing some ground work to repave the track in a new configuration.  TWS has needed a major renovation for years now.

Nice progress. I like the road course/rallyx design. Sometimes you have to start from scratch to build something greaterer!

Wonder if they've found the buried hazwaste and the 3-eyed frogs yet..


And just because I'm a shitty driver doesn't make a miata any less slow.

I drive slow as shit. LOL

Love the aerial shot.  10 points if you looked at it and immediately imagined yourself on the road course.

 

So many memories coming back to me..... I did my first track day at TWS :(

I was out flying today and decided to buzz up to College Station and see what remained. Nothing too surprising from the OP photos; back straight is gone and the development road looks to be in. Even looks like they're maybe starting on some houses back there. Rest of the course still seems semi-intact, at least from roughly a mile away. I'm sure there's a lot more work involved in tearing up the oval, but that it'll come eventually.

 

Maybe I should have gone down low and flown a pass along where the back straight was for old time's sake.
