This is a nice addition to the city's Riverfront Development. Before it was built over, it was a clinker dump and was quite over grown with willow and other toxic tolerant weeds and plants. As it was cut through with dump truck roads, MX trails, and humps of clinker/slag, it was a great place to torture-test drive demo cars. It was the first place I drove a Subaru Brat. My friend “Big Cat” and I drove numerous demo Volvos and Saabs through there on wild Saturday morning outings. We named it after a scene from a 70s tire commercial that was titled “The tires that ran the East Africa Rally”. We had other spots we called Dakar (Rally) and Baja. The downtown auto dealers have probably taken our pictures down out of the sales booths, so it might be possible that we could demo drive cars someplace in Louisville again.

It could also be noted that this is the home field of the Louisville Bats, formerly the RiverBats, (as of 2006) the AAA minor league affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.

And HOORAY, a corporate name on a sports venue that ACTUALLY MAKES SENSE!!!!!!!
