Abandoned racetrack (ThunderDrome) -video
In 2010, we had this crazy idea: Dig out an old, nearly forgotten velodrome in Detroit, patch it up, cut down the brush and hold a race there. Thanks to friends, sponsors, and the community at large in a little over a month we managed to do it and make a helluva good time of it. We call it The Thunderdrome! Everyone had such a hoot at the 2010 event that we’re doing it again every year year – only bigger and better. We’re adding more classes and a whole mess of other great ideas brewed up over bad brew. The Thunderdrome! isn’t your average race: it’s loose, it’s raw, and it’s for people who take their corn flakes with a little bit of rocket fuel. You have to be a little weird to like it – but that’s what makes it good!

Haha I love that. A whole lot of fun, and a whole lot of sketchy all wrapped into one.

Thats pretty cool. It would be good to see more of the older race tracks saved or go back into use. Its kinda sad sometimes to see trees and weeds growing up through some of the older tracks that went out.

I'd love to try it. If I ever make my way to that side of the nation I will make a stop there and check it out.
