Peach Bowl Raceway dirt oval Brooks, Georgia

Very nice dirt oval in Brooks Georgia just west of Griffin that runs all scales and is the only track I know of in Georgia that runs large scale. Even thaw at the same place another track use to be this is a new track with a different owner. Track is about 360 feet hard packed Georgia red clay. The last race of the 2011 season will be Dec 3rd Toys for Tots event. Racing fee is an unwrapped $5 or more toy and $15.

Large scale mush have a remote kill switch and run slicks or street tires.

Directions
Take interstate 75 to exit 205 go west towards Griffin on highway 16. Go through Griffin staying on highway 16 and about 10 miles (not sure just how far just guessing) after Griffin there will be a shell station on the left address 7652 Newnan Rd (same road as highway 16) Brooks, GA 30205. Just after I mean just after take the first right, which is connector 85. Go about 100 or so feet and take the first driveway to the left which is a business complex. Just behind the first building on the left is the track. If any one has any questions you can PM me and I will do my best to answer them.

Some large scale fun.

That orange dirt in Georgia always makes me laugh. It looks like the iron ore dirt we have up here in Northern Minnesota.
Nice looking oval.

I am use to the color but Georgia red clay makes one heck of a surface to race on. Stays well packed and retains water well as well as makes it easier to see your car. LOL
Thanks

I bet that clay is nice. Does it wash off easily or does the iron (rust) in it stick to everything?

Yes it will stain some things on your car but you can get most of if off. Being the track is so hard pack you do not really get a lot on it.
