is 4.6 miles long; Bonneville had 2 tracks that were 10/12 miles each. In recent years at times the races were canceled because the tracks were deteriorated.
They may be just 5 miles or less, now. Without the added distance--do they have room to reach max, and stop before running out of room?

Yea that's what I was wondering as well . How long will it take to reach their speed and then stop that thing. How much of that distance are they allowing for unforeseen circumstances ? Would be a sight to see tho.

It won't reach 1000mph with me near it much less in it. If that thing exploded, how far out would the kill range be?

If it flips and tumbles, and miraculously did not explode.......
