greeson ?

What's Greeson Like?

That's not too far for me. Durant, OK. Is it dual sport or all off road? I don't have any street legal rides, but, would like to ride some new places.

Oh yea dirt only ....might be Saturday for us ......4 hour drive....friday nite.... They do have some trails open at wolf pen gap too......where else to ride ? Do you ride the paper forest ?

Yeah i've ridden the Weyerhauser land. The stuff I found was mostly logging roads and stuff. I didn't find many good trails. Let me know how it was at Greeson? We, and probably, they just got a lot of rain.

how many tracks are there in arkansas? The reason I ask is my farther in law want to know if I want to relocate out there and open up a new track. He lives in jacksonville we are not sure where exactly but probally near benton/searcy/jacksonville. I also looked around and found no dirt bike shops and retailers besides dealerships.

mxstates.com indicates that there are 16 tracks in arkansas but it doesn't list them. i kinda doubt that there are that many. i race in western arkansas fairly often and i can only think of one track that i've heard of in the area you mentioned. it's in pine bluff. i don't get that far east anymore. there used to be an awesome track in north little rock at burns park but it is gone now.

Arkansas

Actually there is a track in Sherwood, which is about 5 miles down the freeway from Jacksonville. I, however would never be opposed to seeing a new track go up in this area.

I have ridden the one in sherwood but they dont hold races very often from what I understand there is also not a motorcycle parts house around that area except for the dealerships. My fater in law found some land and we are thinking of purchasing some land, and opening a shop at the same location.

Another idea we had was a speed shop and what what I understand there are no performance shops in that area also. We were thinking if possible of combining both. I have to find out if there is a need for both. I am going this weekend to check on some property and talk to some people to find out if there is a market for this.

Any help or ideas?

Steven,
Check out this website.

Mike does a lot for motocross in Arkansas. Especially in central Arkansas. He maybe a resource that can help you out.

Yes I did make the trip and it does appear that the prices for land are very fair and within the budget I planned but still checking and talking to others to find out if there is a need for another track and what type of supports I can get from fellow riders out there.
