Hey all
I just wanted to let you know that the S.O.R.P southern off Road Racing Ass. Is having a race for quads and utvís and actís next weekend at Leesville Louisiana on April 10-11.
We are a quad oriented org. but we are interested in getting some actís involved as well.

From the S.O.R.P web site.
Since this is the first time anyone has visited this track, I asked Rick to give me a little insight to his track.

I would like to start off saying that I feel honored to be taking the S.O.R.P. organization to this track because the owner has never allowed quads on his main track before. We will be the first group to "break it in" so to speak.

It is a regulation track with a minimum width of 20 feet. It consists of mostly tabletop jumps with sandy loam dirt. Some areas of the track have hard packed dirt. The entire length of the track is 3.2 miles long with big bowl turns. Depending on the weather, we may or may not use the whole track. Rick has been to the Splendora Track several times and he told me that if the quads can handle the triple step up at Splendora, then they will have no problems anywhere on his track. He also has 40 starting gates that are nitrogen operated.

Rick promises that you will have a perfectly groomed track to practice and race on and if he sees anything that looks to dangerous or too difficult for the quads to handle, then he will remove it from the track, or cut it out of the track. He is very safety oriented and wants everyone, young and old, to have a great race and a good time.

We have known Rick for several years and we really trust his judgment that he will produce a very safe and fun track for us to ride on. We hope that everyone will try real hard to make it!

To get directions to Leesville, mapquest 1597 Pitkin Road, Leesville, LA 71446. The website address is: leesvillemotorsportspark.com. It will take approx. 3 to 3 1/2 hours to get there. There are no electrical hook ups at leesville, so you will need to bring a generator if you plan on camping. They also have several hotels in Leesville so if you need a hotel, you will need to make reservations!

They do have a concession stand and a parts shop at the track. Whether the parts shop stocks parts for quads - I cannot say.
