HAGERSTOWN, MARLBORO SPEEDWAY
SORRY, SOME DATA ARE NOT TRANSLATED YET
Description Permanent road circuit proposed by Washington International Raceway. It should have been in Washington neighborhood. Main circuit (named The Champions) could have been splitted into two shorter courses (named The Master and The Challenger); moreover main straight 1207 m - 0.750 mi long could have been used as drag strip. It should have had also a driving school for driver and facilities suitable for a large audience: parkings for 41,000 cars and campings. It had the ambition to became an "Eastern Indianapolis", even if closeness to Pocono could have caused some problems
