Before Build Carpenter SX

For the ’08 and ’09 season, Paul Carpenter called on OTC to build his private supercross track. The location was Huntington, TX. When we arrived, we found the typical soil for that area, which consisted of a couple feet of sand with hard clay underneath. This was a challenge for us because you can’t build jumps out of sand. We had to strip the sand off all of the areas where there would be track and dig a barrow pit to get the clay needed for the base. Basically, flip flop the sand for clay. Then we excavated the existing pond to make it larger, in order to get all of the dirt for the jumps.
