At Atlanta Motor Speedway, they hold street drags on the oval track's pit road. Not only is it not a "Prime drag racing property" as you described, it is, in fact, not a drag racing property or facility at all.

Only if you can argue that the improvements to that land....buildings, asphalt etc....are part of a viable business. If not, there is no value to any of the improvements, and we are looking at $11k/acre farm land.....once the improvements are removed. On one hand, you WANT sellers to ask prices that make it impossible for a farmer to come along, buy it, remove everything, and have money wise farm land. On the other hand you don't a new track owner to be saddled with debt when they are getting started.

I am a long way from any kind of city and forget farm land. If any land comes up for sale the big city developers are on it like a hen on a June bug. Neighbor was offered 1/2 a million for 60 ac of sorry land and turned it down then the $ general came by and gave him 1/2 of that for 2ac....Farmers don't have a chance in many areas unless they want to sell to the man with the money for another row of condos.
