I had a really nice one over the summer but we put our boat in our backyard and I had to tear it down. Yesterday me and my friend made one in his backyard. Its a small one and very tecnical with a cross over, two brms you need to take or cant make the turns()and about3 jumps and a ditch section. I will get some pics, in the mean time this was mine......

here is a pic of our back yard track. As pictured it measures 70x36 ft. we have a drivers stand and lights. Come spring we will be adding on to make it 54x70. with 9 ft wide lanes. We will also be adding a scoring system to run some club races on weekends since we havent had a track to race locally for about 10 yrs in our town and the closest place to drive and race is about 1.5 hours away.There are around 20 of us here locally that are commited enough to drive all over and race , so once we get our selves established on a race schedule we should be able to get decent turnouts for race days.
