Around 12 miles.
Well, for the most part ya go like
you're going to Muenster, which is to say up I-35 from
Denton ( or Ft. Worth ), until you get to Gainsville.
Then take Hwy 82 West towards Muenster, only you'll go
through Muenster, & continuing on Hwy 82, you'll pass
through Lindsay, & St. Jo. Then about five miles past
St. Jo, you'll see 1815. That's your turn, to the right.
Of course some of you may want to come
up 287 north to, oh, say, hwy 59, & head off
north east towards St. Jo, and then pick up Hwy 82 west to
Now, after about three fourths of a
mile, 1815 kinda 'jogs' off to the right, and I think they
call it Old Bonita Rd. there. At any rate, you'll stay to
the right toward Bonita ( but you'll still be on 1815 ),
& as you leave town ( don't miss it ), on 1815 now
going north, you'll see Talley Rd on your right, about a
quarter of a mile past town, turn right there. I guess
it's about one & three quarters mile down that road to
Remember you can zoom in, and print, or whatever to
take yourself there.

This track is about the same as last years track. But So
what? This is ( as far as I'm concerned ) one of the
best tracks on the circuit. Why? Because the owner can
drive a tractor around every foot of it! ( or so I'm told
) At any rate, this one is one of my favorites, long high
speed straights, deep sand whoops, with just a touch of
air-time for fun. Dan took a bull dozer around the much of
track last week, & smoothed it out from the last TORO
event, but the recent rains ( and SNOW ) may have left
some rain ruts. The ponds are probably gonna be
high, & we may have to skirt around the edge of some
of them, try to stay out of the water, & we'll all
have a few less mud holes! Dan is watching the
weather and says the track will be 12-13 miles depending
on how he runs certain parts ( to allow for the weather
and moisture in the soil, I assume ) There are some newly
refurbished jumps as well so watch out.
You'll certainly see top
gear several times on this track, but don't gear too high
because some of the sandy areas can be deep and when ruts
form, tight as well. I'd gear for the deep sand.
Bring your sand tire, for
those of you who've been there, you know what I mean, for
those of you who haven't...you will! Not many rocks
at all, only a small amount of gravel for a hundred yards
here & there.
This place actually has some grass around the
camping area, and even some trees here & there and
while it may be dusty on the trail, it rarely is in the
entire property has dirt roads that go here & there so
getting out on the four wheeler, to do some watching or
photography is generally not a problem
