Superdrome promo video

This is a short promo video for the Superdrome in Frisco, Texas. It is a 250m outdoor wood surface track with 44 degree banking in the turns.

I wonder how well the wood has been holding up to the elements?

Nice video. I like racing at the Superdrome. It's a great facility with amazing people surrounding it. Whenever I've gone I've always felt at home.

Good. It does require regular maintenance of course. They just replaced some panels because the collegiate nationals were just here.

Dale does like to design some sound into his velodromes. It is always cool to walk up to one of his velodromes and hear the rumble grow louder as one gets nearer.

This design was based off of the one he used for the Atlanta Olympics (1996), just a little steeper.
