PREP SCHEDULE & TRACK CONDITIONS:
Outdoor Track: Disced, tilled, well-prepped every week; disced and watered through the weekend. The irrigation system waters the sand every day that we’re open. The track is disced and tilled every week, so it ruts up good. The track is completely reshaped and rebuilt for race days.
We want to provide a good training ground so we can see Texans win big races.
Read these excerpts from RacerX Magazine on Texas Motocross:
….But here’s a mystery for you: If Texas is so big–and motocross big in it–why does it look so small in the AMA record book? Study its pages and you will find exactly one rider from this super-sized state (which once called itself a republic) who has ever won an AMA Motocross championship, and that was nearly 25 years ago. Even more surprising is the fact that the ledger does not contain a single Texan in the long list of main-event winners in AMA 125 Supercross. When it comes to pro motocross, Texas could just as easily be dubbed the No Star State.
“[On the] East Coast, the tracks are a lot tighter, more supercross-style compared to here in Texas, where everything is wider and more wide open and everything,” he says. “Tracks like [Lake] Whitney, Cycle Ranch, and Oak Hill and stuff like that, the people there really take good care of their tracks.” Do they make them too smooth? “Sometimes they do let it get rough, but I think they smooth them out a lot to make them safer. But yeah, they could let it get a little bit rougher.” Asked if the over-grooming that Hackley mentioned was the reason, Garcia agrees. “The tracks, while extremely nice, are a little too well-prepped, so we get guys growing up who go super-fast on a super-fast track, but when they go to California or Florida, they don’t know how to hang. I mean, when we get a track that starts getting rough at three o’clock with the Texas sun beating down, some of our guys don’t really know how to ride it, because they didn’t grow up in those kinds of conditions.
“Until Texas tracks get together, be it under the AMA or any sanctioning body, and they get used to rougher tracks and riding in all of the elements, we probably are going to remain sub-par, as far as turning out top professionals goes.”
“The tracks are too smooth and the motos too short–maybe five is all. They don’t get rough, at least nothing like in real motocross on the professional tour. In Florida, when you wanted to ride, you rode it the way it was. Here, if you don’t water it and make it as smooth as a road for them, they won’t come and ride it.”
“Also, the tracks here maybe aren’t as demanding as the ones a Stewart or a Carmichael grew up on in Florida,” he says.
