Large sink hole opens up on NASCAR track in Charlotte, NC.  Built over an old landfill…  Should have hired Terra-Petra to get involved with this Landfill!

The Good Earth has not been kind to NASCAR this year. First we had the pothole that delayed the Daytona 500 for more than two hours.

Let’s hope there are no sink holes at the Fontana (NASCAR is there this weekend!)–if so, Terra-Petra is close by to help them out.
