Elevation: 450 feet Latitude: 33.016149 Longitude: -96.971769 GPS: N 33 0.96894, W 96 58.3061 Time zone: CST/CDT (-0600/-0500)

Historical Note

The 1/4 mile paved dragstrip operated from 1969 through 1972. The 2.5 mile road course operated from July 5th, 1970 through sometime in 1971. A 1/2 mile paved oval operated sometime in this time frame.

When it opened, DIMS was considered the finest drag racing facility in the United States. A series of rainouts in 1971 combined with high repaving costs led to the forced sale of the property to Xerox in 1973. There is no trace of the facility left today.
