Knoxville Expo Center

Pretty good size lot. Pavement is in good shape, but perhaps a bit bumpy. Rough transition between the krogers(closed down) and expo lot, but could probably be worked around.
Right across the street from Pizza Inn on Clinton Highway if anyone else wants to check it out.

side lot, probably big enough in itself to run a small course, or of course use as paddock

yeah i suggested a while back. drive across it in second gear in an ST car and report back....after you have your car towed due to broken control arms.

no go. imo.
