Title: Dirt Track Racing (Not Cattle Related)
Post by: Turkey Creek Ranch on June 09, 2008, 12:10:27 PM
Does anyone enjoy these? What are your favorite type of cars to watch? What is your favorite or hometown track?

Every year we go to Belleville, Kansas for the NCRA Late Models on the 4th of July. They are a blast to watch. We are hoping to go down more than once this year. We also go the Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska.

I like watching the UMP modifieds run.  I usually go to ShadyHill Speedway here in Indiana now that Kankankee and Crown Point Speedways have closed.

If you like dirt, you aint lived until you've been to the Boone Supernationals!!!  But the most fun around here is a little banked (about 50%) figure 8 track on our fairgrounds.  The track is probably only 300 foot around the bottom and about 3 cars wide, but they reach speeds over 60 mph running basically hobby stocks.  That is when they water the thing down to control the dust.
