for sale! Honda proving grounds
This could be Boost.com HQ
Rarely, if ever, does something so cool come up for sale as this. Outside of Bakersfield, CA, lies Honda’s proving grounds. And as you’d expect from such a diverse company as Honda, it features a variety of testing areas, including a 7.5 mile high-speed oval, 4.5 mile “winding road” course, shorter terrain areas, a motorcross track, ATV test area, a warehouse, and security and fuel stations. The entire thing is for sale. Who wants to go in with me on a new crib?
Rumors are swirling that several developers are looking at the property in order to raze it and build a solar farm or some other form of green energy bull$#@!. Seriously, that sounds awful. Of all the God-forsaken desert in the western half of this country, these people want to destroy a perfectly good (and well maintained, according to the photos in the gallery) motorsports facility? We can’t let that happen. So, if you’re a fan of The Smoking Tire, and incredibly wealthy, which is very possible, we have a strangely wealthy fan base, please, cough up the loot and buy us a test track.

I really hope those hybrid male/female/electric $#@!s get their squirmish claws off that motorsports facility.
Someone please buy this, I will donate a dollar if everyone else does.Some people live long, meaningful lives.
Other people eat shit and die.
I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

This is awesome, I hope they don't turn it into a solar farm, why?
Wonder how much it is...

Bah too much Crown tonight apparently. Correction
From the NY Times:
No purchase price has been set, but offers of between $10 million and $25 million “are within the range of what we are considering,” said Jeff Andrew, a spokesman for CB Richard Ellis

I e-mailed the broker, I will do what I can to make it happen and see how much I can put up.
This would be the answer to my prayers. A high speed oval? Road Course? Dirt track? Facilities all already built? I mean, holy $#@!.
