My favorite place to practice is Rick's Hobby Farm, just outside New Richmond, WI. It's about 45 minutes from the Twin Cities. It is free and open 7 days a week. They have a forum on this board. They also just rebuilt the track.

If it is 1/8th scale that you have, and you just want to "scratch that itch" and do some bashing, there are many road construction sites in and around the metro area that will be unattended this holiday weekend, and could be losts of fun on a very large scale. Check the MN Dept of Trans web site. (mndot.gov ??) I think the sites are listed there. You could pull over, unload, and run for a bit. A policeman might stop and ask you to leave, but depending on where or how you have parked, I doubt you would have a problem.
