Looong Airstrip to reach +170mph :)

Hey,
some of you already know that i have been looking around for an airstrip that is long enough to reach +170mph from standstill. Today, i came accross to Cumberland Regional Airport ~120 miles from NOVA but has 1500m of runway.
Considering the specs of E92 M3 (0-124mph in 15 sec and 0-1000m in 24 sec) i am very sure finally we can redline 5th gear. and reach around 170mph speeds. we will need 1/3 of the runway for breaking.
I think one of the BMW CCA chapters do autocross events there. I was wondering if anyone has been there or used that airport for autocross like activities.
Thanks

Edit: BMW M3 (E92): 23.5sec@228km/h(143mph) - turns out we need a longer runway (maybe twice as long)- still getting in contact with the airport to see our options on 0-140 runs.
