satelite view. I've been there but I can't recall if it was big enough for an AX or not.

Looks like about 200ft by 900ft - 1000ft in front of the store. And about 250ft by 300ft on the side. That should be plenty big enough. Is the pavement smooth and in good condition?

Is this place not in use any more?

Only about 170' of the width is useable and there are light poles on the sides. But it may be big enough considering the 1000' length. Whee, finally a lot of slaloms for the yellow bumblebee.

It would have to be a kind of "runway" course as narrow as it is. Isn't that movie theater still open there? Doubt we could do much there.

Yes the movie theater is still there. It is on the end along with some type of motorcycle shop and another store. Yes lot is in good condition. Why not try to use the fort henry mall lot nobody ever shops there anymore. The sied with sears is pretty big.
