iT's been too quiet conjecture wise on SAAC 45's location, so here's yet another option.

Would be nice but not convenient to support venues or large hotels, restaurants, dining hall and major airports.  8)

We can do it on my street but I can't guaranty my neighbors will be happy? It's probably ok though? They're pretty much afraid of me anyway...or should be.  ;D

Ozark looks great but too far for everybody I think.

The Ozark track looks like it could morph into something tangible given time. Will need some more infrastructure and refining and there is without question plenty of money around that area. Im only 4 hours away.

I like the track layout in the Ozarks!

Sat night dinner would be jugs of moonshine, crawfish, and fiddle playing!

Are any of the super tracks o conventions gone by, like Charlotte, California Speedway, etc., considering making deals with car clubs since they had few or no fans in the stands or even had races in 2021?  I wonder if any are desperate enough to offer a nice venue at an affordable rate.   8)

At any big venue tracks.... highly doubtful. In fact SVRA has expanded their venues for 2021, whether they will be spectator attended is up in the air.

   Cal Speedway is closed (at the moment) and considering a downsizing. 1/2 mile oval and 1/8th mile drag strip for less "footprint" . Trouble is the land is so polluted ( same as Irwindale) it won't be approved for anything else. There is a really good track in the bay area!

New Hampshire Motor Speedway?  They only have one NASCAR Cup Series race now. Lots of lodging options in Tilton, Laconia and Concord.  Beautiful part of the country, many things to see and do for folks that may want to make a week of it.  Just a suggestion.

Found this track by mistake while doing some research for a future testing site.
Ticks off a lot of boxes, close to major city and major airport, has a 32000sq ft. events center on site. Has variable track configurations, plus a go kart and skid pad facility.
This could possibly be an option if SAAC were considering a solo event.
