I saw Travis Berry Monday evening at the T-Bird Membership Meeting. He said that he had sold his track. I didn't catch the new owners name, but Berry said that it is going to be set up in Lake Worth.

My first track and all-time favorite. Billy Bethel and "Nitro" are the new owners I hear.

I'm posting this as my dad Bill Bethel isn't too savvy with forums. The track is up and running as I drove on it on Father's Day. It's located on: 7621 Hwy 199 in Lake Worth (On the service road between Roadrunner Ct. and Surfside Dr. just past the animal hospital.) The track number is 817-870-6333. Just give him a call and he will be able to answer any questions that you may have. They opened to the public on the 18th of June. He also has a website www.fatcatracetrack.com I took some quick video of me running a wing car that I will try and get on here.

Looks like a scale-friendly track, too... best of both worlds!


Remember, two wrongs don't make a right..... but three lefts do! Only you're a block over and one block behind!

That would be fun track to the scale season because. I hope your business do great job. This one things I like run my slot cars of scale season because each track is so different not always the king track. I could not wait for the season start in November. I need your advice for next season. Could reach in top 5 this my goal.

Does anyone know of a admin that I can get in touch with to get the track on the Texas tracks section of the forum? Hours of operation:

Thursday: 5-9
Friday: 5-10+
Saturday: 12-10+
Sunday: 12-5

These hours are tentative until business picks up.

I think thats really cool. Dallas and Ft. Worth racers have so many differant tracks to check out and race at. It's good to see the sport of slot car racing growing.

It looks good!! That's a fine track to run on. Luther used to own the purple lane, but it looks like the driver's panel is reversed. Can't wait to go check it out.

The driver's panel is still the same as it was when Travis owned the track. The track will be open today at 5, so stop by and check it out.
