Orange County Speedway

I’d like to thank Kimberly from the Orange County Speedway for allowing me access to the track and thanks to all the great people I met.

Side Note- This was one of the strangest drives I’ve had in awhile. Orange County Speedway is only 1 hour 10 min. from my studio in downtown Raleigh. Up 40W to 147N and then through Durham. I know my neighborhood is sketchy, but cutting through Durham I was alittle scared. I rolled up my windows and locked my doors, this was a bad part of town. About 15 min. later I passed ENO State Park and was surrounded by vast rolling grassy hills with cows and horses. Maybe this drive was some sort of metaphor for my speedway project. Don’t mean to get all philosophical on you. Thanks Google Maps for this extra treat.
