Default Track building!

Sorry if I posted in the wrong area. I am new to this so bare with me lol. I have a 50x54 area to build an off road track. Again new to the whole rc hobby. How much dirt would I need to make a legit track I have my set up. I want something like Glen Helen in San Bernardino CA. Pretty basic. Almost a replica track. Jumps and everything just about the same. I just wanted some help and maybe some opinions on how to make it look and run awesome. Tool usage etc. Also how much dirt! Thank you! Also what would be a good RC short course truck to run on this! Oh one more thing. If you have an area the size I do and have pics of it I would love to see what your track looks like!

100+ yards would be my guess if you want motocross type elevations. Elevated features easily take 10 or more yards.
