The Track size is big enough for 1/8 scale, there is a raised pit lane, Driver stand for 10 Racers with a covered roof and bench below driver stand between pit lane. Front straight is 12 feet wide, back straight 16 ft. and the rest of the track varies between 13 to 15. The size is about 130 on the back,120 on the front and width will have to measure. The Track will be open for the Month of May for FREE !!! when conditions permit. Open Tues-Fri 10-6 and Sat. 10-5, Closed Sun-Mon 817-573-4602. For now it is setup for offroad or oval use, the offroad runs clockwise and uses most of the oval, you turn in on the beginning of the back straight and jumps back out on the back straight. The Hobby shop portion inside is about 2500sq feet and I also carry airplanes as well. Thanks, Chris
