Al, I talked to a couple of people that were at Cedar Hill. It looks like an interesting place. I have driven back in and looked at it. They said it was between two hills, they used the hills as the turns. They had Daytona style turns and then dove down into the valley and back up on the turns. Today there are trailers perched on top of each turn. A couple of guys told me when the Reading racers found the place they came in and dominated and that led to the end of the track. is that right?
