Nice vid, I dig this track, and before you told me about the repave and how much better the track was after, I did NOT want to go. Now I'm glad I did and can't wait to get back there this season.

A buddy of mine is a member, wanna make a road trip Dirk for a member day soon?

I'll see if I can get it together before OHR, we'll caravan up there- I hate the drive!

If the facilities were better, I'd like that track better than Cresson... almost.

Eagle's Canyon in my opinion is the best track in Texas...but like the other one said...definately dont make it your first or second trackday experience...it has to be by far the most technical track and it really helped me to overcome my elevation changing fears that i had before....but it is def. WORTH THE DRIVE and I wouldnt care what it cost honestly to ride that track again!!! I also have a very good friend in Waco though so I always stay the weekend there and so i'm allready half-way to the track! but do MSRH first at least before attempting to try that track...I would have done Cresson before I did ECR also if I could have but Cresson was full up...but i promise you wont be disappointed!!!

Man, I don't get the whole "don't do it as your first track day" bit, but it's hard for me to remember the first time I got on a track too.

My first "track day" was at OHR, and I think it's way more technical and challenging than ECR. Of course, I was 17 then, and I don't remember if I was even remotely as intimidated as I should have been...

Bad track has a little of everything, and very close to the house. Its in my avatar pic. Lots of grip when its hot, careful in the morning.
