This is a low speed track that many compare to a go-kart track in terms of how tight it is. There are very short straights followed by complex turns. If you're used to a higher speed road circuit then this track will be a change for you. It's not a high horse power track and is very technical. The lower horse power, lightweight, more nimble cars will be able to show the higher horse power cars what they can do on this track. It's a polar opposite of tracks like Brainerd International Raceway.
