Venue Information

The Dallas International Motor Speedway was initially opened in 1969, the year of TIPF. When the track opened it was sanctioned by one racing organization. In 1971, there were heavy rains and repairs to the track needed. Money for repairs was hard to come by. As a result, the track operated under a second sanctioning organization and the track was not as popular. Eventually, around 1973, the track went out of business and was sold to Xerox. The area referred to as "Xerox International."

Because of the flatness of the land occupied by DIMS and TIPF, standing water appears to have been a recurring problem over time. In all the new construction that has taken place on this property, the property has been graded many times and there are no remains of DIMS left. However, the area where the TIPF stage was located is still vacant and knee deep in mud as of September 2004. Because of the water drainage problem, this may be the reason the stage area has not been built over as of yet. Where the stage was located is still an open field. It looks like it has been part of a tree nursery in recent times.
