National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park

Here's a Killboy "learning which way the road goes" video of the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park:

Wow.  For a fine text summary and analysis, read Killboy's note in the comments section under this video post on on Facebook.  His "three straights" comment reminds me of Road America.  It's a fine spectator experience to watch fast cars hammer down the R.A. straights between groves of trees.  But trees grow in Kentucky too (I hear).

NCMMP also reminds me of a longer, faster, more butt-clenching Virginia International Raceway.  The Beauty Part is that it's as technical, or more so, as any other North American venue.  It's a World Class "driver's course."  It would be great to see a pro road racing series run here.  But I doubt that Chevrolet is interested in upgrading the pits, paddock, and passive safety just to satisfy a pro sanctioning body.  As long as I'm talking fantasy, NCMMP would be the best Formula 1 venue North America has ever offered.  (It would need to be widened.)
