  North outta the metroplex. I take I35E to Denton, then 380 ( just north of Denton ) west to Jacksboro. 

 Some of you may take 287 north out of Ft.Worth to Jacksboro. Either way follow 287 into town, and take a left at the first light which will be 380 west again.

Follow that to Bryson ( population five hundred something... ) and look for a right turn which will be 1191. The track is 1 mile on your left.

  I like this track. Hard ,Wide, and Fast!!  With plenty of hip and shoulder room. And yes this is what I said about South Bryson...go figure, they're only about 3 miles from one another, and the same track cutters did both tracks. Bur who cares?  The Track is slightly different from the last time we rode it, and the changes seem to be for the better...er faster.

It's mostly hardpack with a silt covering. There are a (very ) few rocky sections. Maybe a few more than South Bryson,  And of course, one tree section ( one or two trees ).

I'm gonna gear for speed and use a intermediate to hard tire with +3psi.

  Seriously, it may not be too dusty, with the rain we've had recently.

This one seems to have just a bit more terrain and elevation change than the South, and there are certainly more chances to get your scooter off the ground here.  

I measured 8.5 miles on the gps, 

The track cutters on this crew have got it together as far as markings go and you'll find them closely spaced, out in the open, easy to follow, and generally excellent.


 The PeeWee track follows suite, and is over on the east side of the campground rather than on the south side by the gate as it was last year.

  .. .
Camping   The camp area is large and flat..and smooth as well.  And you may even find a few trees to park under if ya get there early. The ground seems to have plenty of grass and the recent rains should only help it out. Watch for just a bit of standing water in the biggest open area of the main camp ground north and west of the pee wee area.  
. .
Spectator Rating   Lots of roads and access to the racetrack. But please let's watch what we're doin' and not risk anyone's life by playin' chicken with an oncoming racer, I've circled some of the road crossings on the map so please don't be the one we all point fingers at 'cause ya pulled out in front of a racer.
