If the thrill of the 75 isn’t enough for you, maybe the Port-A-Cool Texas World Dirt Track Championship at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth will be. It’s a down and dirty, pedal to the metal, fuel-injected hootenanny where you can scream as loud as you want because the engines will just scream louder. It’s a family-friendly event, provided your kids are down with the latest swear words, and at $5 a pop for children under 12 it’s cheaper than a baby sitter. ($10 for adults.) Saturday’s race kicks off the 2013 season with a showcase of Modified, Limited Modified and SUPR Late Model cars. Crush some tall boys and let your inner bald eagle soar.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
