Very, very frightening...
I swear, I never put that together. The Thunderbolt track is named for the Thunderbolt air squadron that was stationed on that property when it was a military airport. There is an active community airport still operating directly next to the track. It's a really cool place to go and spectate - lots of great club and pro racing (Grand Am was there the past few years, not coming back next year unfortunately) and cool small jets and helicopters taking off and landing next door.
