Secondly, with the repaving, this older 'long bus stop' has had its pavement removed, the only configuration remaining is the one shown in the Moto image. In addition, with the recent repaving, a copy of the Bus Stop has been added to the course shortly before it. It is currently unused, but is placed immediately in front of a spectator area and may be used in the future. Bakkster Man (talk) 14:15, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Why isn't this mentioned at all in the article? Turn 3 (The Horseshoe) of the infield road course used to extend much closer to oval turns 3 and 4 than it does now (Shortened in I believe 1984 to open up room in the infield for things like camping). The bus stop has also seen several configurations and slightly different locations on the back straight compared to the modern layout. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:16, 5 February 2012 (UTC)
I'll help dig some up. Found a few, hopefully we can get some quality info at some point. Bakkster Man (talk) 20:08, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Curious, seems they had this old layout 1983 and prior. That had a longer international horseshoe, no bus stop chicane, and a single turn in place of the T1-2 complex. Looking at results, it seems they ran no bus stop in '83, added the bus stop for the '84 race, then shortened it later that year and ran it shortened with bus stop since '85. I want more info than this before I add everything to it, but at least I think we've narrowed down what we're looking for. Bakkster Man (talk) 20:30, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
And it goes deeper... 1971 was a 4,522 km layout, 1972 and '75 was a 6,132 km layout,, before settling on the 6,180 km layout for most of the decade in '76.. Now I'm thinking we should really only talk about the most raced recent layout, but I'm not able to find exactly what those layouts are. For example, where is the bus stop, is it there at all, etc. Bakkster Man (talk) 21:03, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
