This does no good. This site is from several years ago. He has indoor dirt oval, which few people run. There is indoor off-road elec./gas. And there is a new outdoor off-road with a massive 40ft. single. The face of the jump is almost shoulder high and I'm 6'0" so it is awesome. He strategically placed a light pole next to the jump. It's cool to see how high up the trugs and buggies can hit. lol A lot of the guys worked really hard on it this year.

Dallas isn't too far. Like 6 hours from here on I-35. Does your track have an email address to check out. Is it mostly 8's running down there or is there a mix of buggies?
