I only raced there 1 time in 2000 and the return road was rough as well as the track close to the finish line. Pretty fair all together though, I got runner-up the first time there

Then come buy the Hallsville Raceway 1/4 mile here in east Tx. We've been depressed ever since the owner let it shut down. :cry: :cry: :cry:

its an hour and a half away so it cost more to get ther and 411 is 5 minutes down the street and knoxville dragway is 45 minutes.....but 411 and knoxville dont run a bike program.......id like to see one get started on tuesday nights like they have in nashville at the hill, a ton of bikes and people show up every week

i would take my dragster in march, october, november though.....knoxville starts TOO LATE on april 1 and ends TOO EARLY in october....411 doesnt have a consistant pay out every week but runs whenever its warm enough
