Fair use rationale for Image:OReillyRP.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:OReillyRP.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 05:05, 6 June 2007 (UTC)


Though this article is a well written article it is in need of sources. Please take the time to find sources for this article if you have the time I don't at the moment. --Pdesil (talk) 17:41, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Rewrite Needed[edit]

Ive Noticed that this article is a bit confusing I really like articles to be in chronological order this article jumps from modern day information to back in the 1960's. It really just needs to be moved around a bit and also referenced as I stated earlier. --Pdesil (talk) 05:23, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Alternative layout: the "roval"[edit]

One thing that probably should be mentioned is that, in addition to the dragstrip, oval, and road course, there was another "roval" configuration used by IRP. It combined the normal oval with a dog-leg inside/bypassing turn 1, making a left just past the end of pit road, then a right, then a left back onto the oval between turns one and two (making oval turns 2, 3 and 4 roval turns 4, 5, and 6). It was used, as far as I know, only for the Fastmasters series in the summer of 1993, and measured 0.75 miles (1.21 km) in length. - The Bushranger One ping only 10:28, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
