Red Hill Raceway (Sumner, Illinois) - Hearing the track possibly re-opening in 2016.

Red Hill Raceway - (Sumner, Illinois): Hearing the track possibly re-opening in 2016.
Anyone know more about it?
I've heard this about 9 / 10 times over the last few weeks.
Heard there have been a lot of equipment there clearing the land of brush, the track surface, ect.....
 
Rumors start this time every year about Red Hill opening up. Don't ever see it happening. The place is in the middle of nowhere and the track is terrible.

No offense intended nathans1012 but until someone posts pictures of this track work it's nothing more than BS. With basically everybody in this country carrying a camera in their phones, pictures would hit the internet faster than thunder follows lightning if there was anything to this rumor.
 
I only live about 20 minutes from the track now and I did have a picture on my phone of the place with the sign on, concession lights lit up and the track lights on. There has been a great deal of work done on the property in the last 6 months but I have heard about 100 rumors about what is actually going on. I do know that the place has been cleaned up and even some excavation work has been done.
 
Here's to hoping I'm wrong. Just total speculation of course but how sweet would a Friday USRA track be? A devout Chad Kinder fan who lives very close to that track told me 3 or 4 years ago that they kept the grass mowed ect. at the track. Time will tell.
 
A Friday/Saturday USRA deal would be fantastic in the area but I won't believe that until I see it. I have a hard time believing Red Hill is going to run on Fridays IF they do open back up. I see them trying to bump Route 45 out of the Saturday night spot or trying to run on Sundays (which I think would be their best option).
 
Rumors are floating around agian. Hope to go race there soon. Rout 45 raceway on the other hand has been purchased by joe Lee. He plans on opening in July.
