Pros.
It’s the closest track in the city of Dallas.
$10, ride all day.
It’s a good place to ride some 4-wheelers at a slow pace, such as utility quads and such. Next time I go, that’s what I’m taking.

Cons
Lax track, no helmet requirements or rules of any sort. Kinda of scary, I was waiting to have a head on collision with a few nut cases at any moment. People were going in all different directions.
The track is a glorified BMX track. The jumps are so steep and stubby that second gear will launch you straight up in the air.
Very dusty, no watering I could see, and a black clay base.

You forgot to mention that it's a great place to destroy a back tire in a very short period of time!

LOL, the Shallow Grave experience. Dodging partially buried car parts is the best time to be had there. Waste of $10.

First (and last) time there for me, I did a couple laps. Just about got taken out by a helmetless 2-up on a quad going the wrong way, witnessed a jeans wearing, no helmet/no sirt (did have goggles on!) "freestyler" cutting the track, quads spinning donuts in the pits.... I did my 2 laps and called it a day. I've never seen anything like it and hope I never do again.

Dang Okie, I was hoping we could meet up there real soon to get some of that trash can chicken that Charles cooks up. Heck, we don't have to ride - we can just go to eat! :laugh:
