The tests will take place at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Tuesday, according to Champ officials.Each test will take about 20 minutes and local access will be available between the road tests.During the three-phase test, cars will:• Begin on First Avenue at Buchanan Street and head north, turning onto Madison Street at about 50 mph and proceed east to First Street.• Begin under the pedestrian overpass that crosses Madison Street and accelerate on Madison, stopping midblock between Central Avenue and First Street.• At the intersection of First Avenue and Madison Street, the race cars will momentarily rev their engines, then continue down Madison to cool down.Man, I have to figure out a way to be down there...that would be sweet...
