Sunshine Motorsports Park

Just north of St. Pete, there is a tiny quarter mile track. It was always known as Sunshine Speedway, and then it closed for a few years. Almost razed, the site reopened as "Showtime Speedway". The site has a small drag strip, the figure 8 quarter mile, and a small BMX course. I felt like this would be a good change from my normal tracks, and add more to the whole thing

So that brings us to below. I would turn this whole area into a functioning facility. Repaving the track, I would do a concrete, higher banked track with asphalt infield. The stands would wrap around the front stretch and turn 4. Installing lights to the outside would improve sight, and To help fans and sell ad space, 

The stands would stack to a plaza area with concession and a 360 degree commentary booth high above the drag strip and track. On the other side of the plaza us small stands for the drag strip.

With plenty of parking available, competitors have their own parking lot with immediate access to the garages. My plan is having as little of a carbon footprint that a race track could have, while still becoming the premier motorsports park in the Tampa Bay Area.
