We was gonna get some science . . .

Then we got somethin' else!!!

We almost built something like this in Texas.

Then they killed the funding and it got turned into a bunch of left turns.

Yep. From Neutrinos to Nascar . . .

I am so proud.

Update: As RBB points out in the comments, the one is not the other. The story was too good to check! Ha!! So partially correct: we started with a sciency super collider and ended up with a Nascar supercollider!!! The money for one was not the money for the other . . . though still . . .

Not to pick nits but.... the Texas Motor Speedway is in between Ft Worth and Denton and the Super Collider site is in Ellis County near Waxahachie.

The site is still unoccupied but has been put to very good use. It was used for the production of Jean-Claude Van Damme's 1999 cinematic masterpiece "Universal Soldier: The Return".

Sorry for the redundancy; obviously if Jean-Claude Van Damme is involved cinematic masterpiece goes without saying......
