The Port-A-Cool® Texas World Dirt Track Championship is the first of two dirt racing events held annually at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track, a .4-mile, clay-surfaced track known to produce some of the most competitive dirt track racing in the nation.
“With six inches of fresh dirt applied to the racing surface, we’re expecting to see some exciting action on the track,” Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track General Manager Cameron Branch said. “Our competitors never cease to put on a great show and bring fans to their feet.”
Not only will drivers be contending for purses up to $3,500, but also a Cyclone 3000 centrifugal air delivery system courtesy of Port-A-Cool®, the title sponsor for each of the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track’s 2012 events. Port-A-Cool®, an international portable cooling unit company based in Center, Texas, also sponsored the U.S. National Dirt Track Championship in the fall of 2011.
