what happened to this track

Recommended Posts

I drove down by McAllen with my uncle this week to pick up farm equipment.  Drove by where I thought the track was.  But did not find the track.  Has this track been torn down?  Or maybe I was on the wrong road.  Just curious.  Would love some information on it. And did it get replaced or is there no more dirt track along the border.  Used to be a track quite a few years ago in Laredo.  But don't remember where it was.  Thanks for any help.

Well, if you were on South 10th street, just south of the 2nd set of levee's, you were in the right place.  While the track is physically still there, sadly it has not been in operation since approx 2012.  Just recently someone had posted some pictures of the facility and it is in quite a state of disrepair. Heartbreaking honestly to even talk about it.

Is this track for sale or lease? Or is it closed for good?  I remember the winter races that used to be held there.  Was always a good show
