    If I'm not mistaken I heard that Toyota might be picking up the contract when it expires. Not sure about that though.

    Yea, I heard that as well. Still I don't think it will be Toyota I guess time will tell. If no one puts up the cash, maybe cars attraction? I guess that is a wild idea.

    I doubt that we will have a cars land anytime soon because if we do get it in the World why on earth would anyone travel to Anaheim to visit BSC.

    I thought I heard Lou say NASCAR might take it over. I'm not sure if he said it or not. But I heard that somewhere

    A NASCAR overlay would be pretty cool for Test Track, but would be hard to keep up with drivers switching teams and sponsors as often as they do.

    I think NASCAR would be a good company to take over GE. I could see it being like a NASCAR garage for the queue, and then testing of the cars for the actual ride.

    That seems like it would mean a pretty solid overhaul of the ride, I wouldn't mind seeing a change I dont think.

    Sure hope somebody keeps it open or at least modifies it and takes it over.

    Re: test track

    I don't mind TT getting a refresher, but the problem is that NASCAR does not have a good reputation outside of it's fan base in American. The difference between the size of Formula 1 fan base and the NASCAR fan base is roughly comparable to football v. soccer worldwide. In other words, it's almost a joke.

    Also, in the Northeast and other parts of the country, and I'm sorry to say this but it's true, NASCAR is considered a "redneck" sport. I'm not saying it is but I live near NY and many people look down on it.

    While people might not like GM as a car maker any more at least the idea and appeal is universal. All car companies do something like this. A NASCAR experience also doesn't fit with the Future World theme. What will it be, the future of auto racing? It's not universal enough.

    Well, Disney HAS to part ways with GM. They are a badly tarnished and failed company.
    I am hopeful that Honda or Toyota will take it over as rumoured.
    However, the whole Nascar thing.....would be ok also.
    GM just has to go.
    We will soon find out.
