: The picture is the start of a long curve (I hope this is the turn I'm thinking of) Go inside like that and you can't exit and carry enough speed through the straight.

: Is this the long left sweeper that leads into a short straight, medium-heavy right to a brake slamming left hairpin? (Never been there, just an in car Camera watching freak) Speedvision! woo hoo!

Yep, I think you've got the right turn. It's Turn 6, which is a classic late-apex turn. The straight it leads onto isn't *all* that short - you can easily reach 100mph by the time you get to the braking zone :-) And Turn 7 isn't as sharp as it used to be before the "Chute" was added for the NASCAR weenies :-) (They don't even USE turns 5-6, the Chute connects turns 4 & 7 - turn 7 has a LOT of room now.)
