If you’re looking for something to do this evening, head out to 281 Speedway for 2012 Season Finale and Spring Series of Texas. The Saturday night dirt track racing season draws to a close tonight, and Stephenville home owners who are fans of the sport are encouraged to attend. The season will resume in March 2013.
The quarter-mile, semi-banked, oval clay track is located approximately three miles north of Stephenville on Highway 281. It’s a popular place to take the entire family, partly because it’s so affordable. Admission for adults is $10.00, children 6-12 years old is $3.00, and anyone younger is admitted for free. You can pack up a cooler and bring it inside (as long as it is no larger than a 12-can size), and part of the fun is picnicking with the family before and during the races. 281 Speedway also has a kid’s club with different activities for kids planned throughout the year, and also gives out trophies.
