Default Backyard Track..

I was reading a thread where some of you like to see Tracks in progress so I thought I would post mine.

Me and my cousin have been building a track for about 2 weeks now. We've still got alot to do, but it's coming along nicely. If anyone has any suggestions on something we could do, or do better, please let me know. Here are a few pics of the progress so far, I still have about 300 feet of pipe to put up..

This pic shows the 2 jumps we've got, it's going to jump the track.

In the first pics it's top soil, we've cut that down. The last 4 pics is Red Clay, it was really fine too. I was thinking about bringing in some more red dirt

Hey guys, we have started to revamp our track. Here is what the track looked like last year..





I started a couple weekends ago and did most everything by myself, today we worked for about 3 hours my cousin and I. We should have it completed, or mostly completed this weekend. Here are a couple of quick pics I snapped with my phone. Better pics coming tomorrow...



Big double..





Straight...

Thanks man, I hated to take pics without all the pipe down, but I wanted to show the progress on it. I wish I would have taken some of how the old track looked before I cleared it. It had grown up so bad, it won't be as bad this time, we did it right

Here are some updated pics. Still need to put the whoops in, final touches on the jumps, and smooth out the lanes. Already seeing a few grass sprouts here and there, I need to get that under control! LOL
