Thanks so much everyone. I put a lot of time into making that video.
Well its slightly up hill, flat at the stripe, then a downhill dip and back up on the shutdown area.
Thats why the Carolina cars run a few tenths slower up here than at Fayetteville. That means that I need to get my car to Fayettville.
Yea, you need to bring your car to Fayetteville this fall. It would really help your times running at 165'. The closest thing to Mason Dixon here is zMax at 630'.

... about Mason Dixon:
It is downhill then up at the end but you will run a few tenths slower at MD then at Fayetteville because the track is at a higher elevation. I've looked extensively into this using Google earth and my own GPS.
Fayetteville is at 165' elevation.
According to Google Earth:
Mason Dixon starts at 545 feet elevation at the light tree then drops to 530 feet at a track cross over road located at about the 1/8th mile mark. (Minus 15 feet) the track then rises to 539 feet at the finish - plus 9 feet in the second 1/8th mile but still 6 feet below the start line, the run out continues to rise to 565 feet at the turn out.
That's a 1.3° downward angle over the first 660' (1/8th mile) and a .5° rise from the eighth mile to the finish line. Followed by a .8° rise from the finish line to the turn out in the 1,870' of track run out.
Steve may call BS on this but even if these numbers aren't *exactly
right there's no doubt in my mind that this track runs down hill. I will check these numbers again with my own GPS when I'm there in July.
Mason Dixon looks like this:
Here's the best picture of the elevation change at Mason Dixon that I have. Unlike other tracks the time signs are not at the end but located at the 1/8th mile mark.
