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:
