Lightbulb Yellow Belly Drag Strip, Grand Prairie Texas

I'm down here in Texas for the month and just drove past this place yesterday. I've been hearing some racing the last couple weekends over there.

Anyone on here in the Dallas FTW area and ever checked this place out?? Thinking about heading over there later and seeing what it's all about.

Edit: I guess website says Sundays open at 2pm weather permitting.. website appears pretty outdated, I'll call and see what their hours is.

Yeah, just as I was leavin on the way out the gate, tryin to keep my white ass from gettin shot at.

That place is a fn joke. Every other vehicle broke down at the tree, management doesn't keep people off the track no one tech's anyone in and I'm not kidding when I say there was 20-30 people just standing out on the track and dudes runnin in gym shorts and tank tops. There was an average of about 7-10 minutes between passes and I might add not a single hottie to look at.

Gonna check something else out next weekend.

Pretty sad actually, I called to ask them about their events, classes, hours and etc. No one answered so I left a message. I received a call back directly from the owner "Pat" a little old lady that seemed very nice. I told her I was down here for military training and would love to come check her place out. She was excited and told me to ask for her when we showed up. When we showed up I asked for her and out comes this little old lady, she gave us passes to get in and shortly after I was overwhelmed by the way the place was ran. Should have taken your advice but I'm that guy that has to go do everything wrong on my own before I learn something I guess.

Looks like a decent 1/8th, just needs a little better maintenance and all the current staff needs fired and new management needs to take over. Also it appears that they need to bump up their already present armed security a bit as I heard from a couple patrons that people have been shot there from issues resulting from gambling, gang affiliation and etc.

I'm hoping to check out a different track that you mentioned and hit up the Gas Monkey Garage Restaraunt while I'm down here.
