Default Seeking onroad track in Dallas...

Is there a permanent onroad track (for 1/10) anywhere around Dallas? I know that "Finish Line" sets up for racing, but I really am in need of some setup time/practice.

Any information is appreciated,
John

Indy, T&T, HTRLrc, Finishline, and possibly another Hobbytown track is due to start next year.

Is Indy the only "permanent" track? Do you happen to know the nearest intersection in Garland?

Which Hobbytown? The one by Dave and Buster's?

Thanks,
John

The Hobbytown that will be starting a new on-road track is located next to Dave and Busters on Walnut Hill of Central Expressway. They hope to start operations near the end of Jan, beginning of Feb at the earliest.

A newbie to the forum. Apparently, noticing the dates of the postings was not high on the observation list.

The race director and shop employee will be at the pro series, so no racing next weekend. That's what I was told anyway.
