Hills, valley's, rocks and logs, what better way to enjoy the hot weather than to tackle an obstacle course in a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
The open field in McAlister park is the future home to Lubbock's first Hummer Track. The City of Lubbock and Scoggin dickey have teamed up with Texas Parks and Wildlife to open the track for anyone with a four wheel drive vehicle.
The track off Spur 327, will be about a quarter of a mile long, with obstacles that will include log crossings, rocks, and vertical steps as well as a 60% incline and side slope. Each hummer dealership is required to have a capabilities demonstration track, so Scoggin-Dickey will also use the track to market the Hummer.
The good news is it's free and open to the public. The park will be funded through a state grant, and should be open this October. But that's not all, there is also a phase two on the agenda, which will include an additional track for ATV's and a motocross course. All of which will be open to the public, and free for use.
