I'm Nick.  I thought lost speedway showed it is more torn apart.

I stopped by about 4 weeks ago and drove through the neighborhood behind the track. This is what it currently looked like. I was able to walk up to the back stretch wall before I decided it as best to leave. 

The track is basically cut in half from the tunnel in turn 1 to the mid point of the back stretch. The main neighborhood entrance follows the shape of the old speedway turn 1.

The interesting part is how turn 4 hasn't collapsed. When we were there it was full out water in the tunnel and that earth is just dropping into it. Pretty sad state she sits in
