This is today's dirt Fayetteville Speedway.  I drove our dirt Limited Sportsman car (my avatar) in a 10-lap Late Model Sportsman heat race on this asphalt configuration in 1973 when we were rained out at Wilson County Speedway. Finished last. Never drove again. 😃 It was operating under the name Cumberland County Speedway at the time. A lot of our Richmond drivers came down for big NASCAR LMS evens. I really liked the place except for no retaining wall or guardrails.

Then again, Alex... I was thinking of the old oval Portland Speedway and not the Portland International Raceway road layout, which might be a very interesting venue.

With a background in Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations and Business Administration, I'll certainly have to proclaim my lack of any knowledge of fluid physics, but somehow I wonder if the outcome of the encounters with our Richmond short track concrete wall by Jerry Nadeau and Derrike Cope would have been less severe with SAFER Barrier?
