Current list of TX Race Tracks?

As I’ve wandered deeper down the rabbit-hole that preparing my sons circle-track kart is I’ve realized there seems to be dirt track karts popping up all over. L87, Shiner, Riverside, I37, I’ve heard on about one near Rockport, etc.

Is there a comprehensive list of tracks in Texas anywhere? I mean everything from Quarter Midget tracks to Mud-Drag tracks to NASCAR Cup tracks. It’s easy to name every asphalt circle track running in TX but can anyone name all the dirt tracks, theres got to be more than a dozen?

A comprehensive list is elusive because so many Texas Dirt tracks come and go, get renamed or simply fall off everyone's radar.

Jay Hallas probably could come up with a pretty complete list.  He is rebelracewriter on here.

I think I'm going to start working on a list; could be a fun project and I think it'll help show people what's really still here. You up to help reb?

James, a few years back I wrote an iPhone app that lists Texas tracks. They are broken down in to three categories: drag strips, ovals, and road courses, so it doesn't include karts as you are looking for. I try to update the data at least once a year, but as Nick and rebel mention above it is ever changing and hard to keep up to date and accurate. It is a free app if you want to check it out, just search for "Texas Race Tracks" on the App Store.

Not bad for a guy that doesnt even live in Texas anymore.

LOL.....nice list Josh....I guess you don't want me critiquing it?

Vado isn't in El Paso, or even Texas....It's in New Mexico

Xtreme is in Ferris....Not certain of proximity to Crandall

HMP also has a drag strip

HRP is gonna be short-lived

Does Yello Belly still run?....Thought they got shut down after a guy lost his life there....I know the old Grand Prairie Spwy next door is long closed

El Paso area has a drag strip(Clint.Tx)...It was renamed Southwest University Motorplex

How the hell did I get involved in this....SMDH

REB, Yello Belly is still running. Not sure if we can round up enough weapons to go there........

I saw a video from there the other day and I couldnt believe people trusted going down that track, especially with the lack of safety

I ran at both Yello Belly and the speedway next door that was at that time called "Thunderdrome Speedway" (not Thunderdome) in 1973. Both places were wild wild west even back then. I can still see the spectators at Yello Belly with big stacks of one dollar bills betting on each race . Probably with 20's today

What is the latest on Battleground?

Well, They were Clearing Up the Property several months back.    Don't think there is really any Serious Plans on Reviving the Property for Any "Racing Plans"....

I think that it is Safe to Consider that  Race Track  - " Dead".....
