texas world speedway - 1 hour
msr-cresson - 3 hours
eagle's canyon - 3.5 hours
hallett - 7 hours (i would wear your face as a mask here)

you can get on the track from $150-200 at either place (hallett is only $100).
^ not helping.

There are no tracks in TX and the place is flat as FL (and more humid and stinks).

I work at ~750 ft elevation and live at about ~1400 ft elevation. My commute is about 30 miles. My property drops 200 feet from top to bottom. Max elevation in FL is about 300 feet. Max elevation in TX is 8750 feet.


Several of those tracks Hustler mentioned are routinely run in both directions, and a couple of them have multiple configurations, so effectively it is more than 7 tracks. And, they run events 8-9 months out of the year. Usually the limiting factor on track time is money and not opportunity as there are several events (races, track days) each month.


Keep trying...
