  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 left turn which will be 3209. The track is 1.5 miles on your left.

  I like this track. Hard and Fast!!  With plenty of hip and shoulder room.

It's mostly hardpack with a silt covering. There are a (very ) few rocky sections. And one tree section ( one tree ).

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

  Seriously, it will be dusty, true enough,  but if you liked the high speed and fairly flat Jacksboro II, then you'll like this one even more. 

I measured 8.5 miles on the gps, but the mile markers on the track were a little long...meaning when I got to the 1 mile marker, my gps said 1.1. When I got to the 2 mile marker my gps said 2.17. So I used his markers on the track map, so they would match...so don't think the track is short, it's regulation, just marked a little funny.

 And as far as markings are concerned, you'll see from some of the pictures, that the markings are closely spaced, out in the open, easy to follow, and generally excellent.


 The PeeWee track follows suite.

  .. .
Camping   The camp area is large and flat..and smooth as well.  No shade in the main camp area though. And please watch your fires...it's drier than a popcorn fart out there, and a single match on that dry grass could cost a lot more than a dark spot on the ground!
. .
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'll be very,,,put out if we have to waste a racer's tree hittin' bandages !!
