In case you haven't heard, Billy and Amy Keester are the newly appointed promoters of Black Hills Speedway for the 2008 season. There ambitious plans include the removal of the 3/8 mile oval and bringing the big ol' 1/2 mile back to life. This page is being designed to chronicle the daunting task that is to take place in just a few weeks.

The first wave photos show a pleasant sunny evening, with a ton of dirt work completed to make the task reality. Unfortunately, a half week of unrelenting rain has temporarily derailed the project, pushing the opening date into June. Click here to view the first installment of photos of this incredible untaking.

I have a few more images of the progess being made at the track located here. Plans are for a test-n-tune this Thursday night (June 5), should Mother Nature be inclined to take a night off.
