The modules would positioned against the perimeter wall on straightaway sections exiting the corners.<BR><BR>If all goes according to plan, the 2000 feet of Alpina modules would be transported to F-USA dirt track races using two semi-trucks already owned by Clear Channel Entertainment Motor Sports, which owns F-USA.<BR><BR>
