We would love to have one back east. We just aren't aware of any places, or
rather, we aren't
familiar with any. Give me some specifics on where and why. We need a place
that is spectator
friendly. We want the course to be tight, not all spread out. Let me know if
you have a good place.

Thanks, Beau


SO.......Help me come up with a list.

This really needs to be held on land that you can get firm permits for use. I know that the trails we use in Oklahoma all have a variety of owners and they are not spectator friendly at all.

Hell the Cedar City and Farmington trails are all in an area no bigger than 300x300 yards.

I know for a fact that Tellico would not be an ARCA type place. It just does not fit the bill.

Disney OK might be a good option.....

I know for a fact that Attica could. It is privately owned and has places for spectators.

I have tried to call them and see if they are interested but I keep getting a busy signal?

Badassjeepguy-paragon? does it have a web site or a contact?? We would need to give her an address and a contact. I will call them to see if they would be interested. OR if you know the people that own this place you talk to them. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">;D

I'm doing this because I want to see ARCA come east... we've got to have more places than this.

We have a local off road park that is just getting off the ground here close to Nashville, TN - Super spectator friendly, but they are still working on the obstacles...

They are already bringing in buggy races this fall, looking to attract other spectator type events as well.

Pavilion, trails all right there, tons of parking, etc....

I just got off the phone with Troy Meyers.(the guy that owns Attica) He said he would be interested and he had spoke to them before. He also said they have made a new rockcrawling course that is almost a mile long. He is working with a "Non-ARCA" group to put on a nation wide rocking event. So we will see.

I'm going to give her is name.
SO.....Give me names, phone #'s, and addresses guys. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

No, but I do have email: [email protected]


This place is several hundred acres and has lots of potential, just needs a little time...

They already have some pretty rough stuff, and as more people ride and more erociion takes place, it gets worse (better <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0"> )

Here are just a few pics from a year ago New Years Day.... it was just opened before that and a LOT has changed.. more trails, rougher trails, etc...







I have seen lots of better pics of trails there, just I don't have any more <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Ever been to Dayton 50 miles west of Knoxville. They have Hummer world up there (A big quarry).
the whole place is owned by one fella.
Lot's of decent obstacles from what little I got to trail on with potential for some nasty stuff for sure.
