Single 8" yellow light in turn 3, most likely from a school crossing sign. Duct tape helps keep the afternoon sun off the lens.

Flaggers light switch, which is the maintained contact type. The little white sign says, "Pull to start, Push to stop". The button has been removed from the switch, perhaps to prevent unauthorized use. The light blinks on and off about once a second.

Tapered soft wall. In the straight-away there is no soft wall. Then the soft wall starts as quarter midget tires behind a 2x12. Then the wall turn to race car tires behind a 2x12. In the center of the turn the wall has an additional layer of racecar tires sitting on the track.
