NASCAR America: 50 States in 50 Shows: Texas


The latest edition of “50 States in 50 Shows” takes you to East Texas, about a mile from Dallas.

The track profiled is Devil’s Bowl Speedway, a half-mile track in Mesquite.

Devil’s Bowl has been graced by the presence of Jeff Gordon and Steve Kinser during its 40 years of competition.

But a big piece of the track’s history came in March 1978 when it hosted the first World of Outlaws sprint car race.

Watch the video to learn more about the track and racing in the Lone Star State.
