Default Re: The Ghosts of old race tracks

Howdy yall,

Got yet another track for you.

Hot Rod Hill just northeast of Bryan, Texas. Not to be confused with an older track of the same name, opened in 1999-2000 and only operated until around 2005-2006. Reason for closure was due to the track owners wife falling ill. The track owner is long time Texas sprint car owner/driver Wayne Brown. Wayne kept the track maintained and race ready up until about a year and a half ago for fire training and private testing. It was a 1/4 mile at the bottom, of the 60+ foot wide racing surface. Ran sprints, modifieds, bombers, legends, and a 4cyl front wheel drive class called buzzers. Wayne fought lawsuit after lawsuit and won them all before shutting down. He has mixed feelings about opening the track up in the future. But im glad he was gracious enough to give us the tour of his place and sit and talk with me for a few hours, lots of stories over many years.
