Here is the start of a really great article that sums up the excitement of a night at an AMA Flat Track Event. Click through to read the entire story on TheDrive :
I spent my last night in Austin a long way from the overflowing bars and restaurants of downtown. Left wife and kid at a friend’s place and drove the truck to a dusty field within eyeshot of America’s only F1 circuit. There’s something special there, less than a mile from the engineered asphalt of the Circuit of the Americas: a lonely, half-mile dirt oval. A flat ring of packed clay with nothing for runoff but grass or hay bales or plywood over a chain-link fence. This is the home of AMA Pro Flat Track.
