Courtesy North Dallas realtor Lydia Player, we find today the perfect homestead for the race-car fanatic for whom the thought of living anywhere but within spitting distance of the Texas Motor Speedway is unbearable. For some $1.3 million, you can move right into a 1,600-square foot condo perched high atop the Lone Star Tower Condominiums, where you'll have views like the one above. I dunno -- seems a little cramped and understated, you ask me. Favorite part of Player's description: "Located in the Northwest Independent School District ..." Because it will matter. --Robert Wilonsky
