There are more than 2,000 short tracks in the United States. Among them, fewer than 60 are NASCAR-sanctioned. Holland NASCAR Motorsports Complex is one of the few with such distinction. The raceway has guzzled the fumes of that rarified air since 1960, when it was built as a 1/3-mile facility surrounded by just 1,200 seats. In 1964, the course expanded to 3/8 mile, and four years later, asphalt replaced the outdated shag carpeting as the track's surface. Today, Holland packs up to 7,000 spectators into its grandstands. It completes the race-day experience with various amenities, including The Midway, where fans can fuel up on snacks and drinks, and The Village, where fans party under large tents and around picnic tables.

If patrons call within 24 hours, they will come back to tend to any missed spots.
In 2005, after years of working as a freelance engineer, Karl Farmer decided to draw on his business sense, mechanical know-how, and love of colored sponges to start his own residential and commercial cleaning company.

Clients can request an NYCS technician's power-washing services to clean the side of a building or rouse sluggish children for school.
