This is where the rubber meets the road. The Houston Motorsports Park in Northeast Houston.

Every second Saturday you can find some adrenaline boosting, NASCAR style action. They feature a variety of different class races and varying driver skill levels.

With such a varied amount of experience on the track, and this being the first area race since the fatal Tony Stewart, Kevin Ward accident; safety is a major concern.

Graham Baker, a 60 year racing vet says, "It was a very sad event that happened, that was very very unfortunate we've got rules that are mandated in here that you cannot get unfastened from your seat belt or your safety equipment your harness or helmet until the safety crew arrives on the scene."

So next time you get the urge to catch a nice three wheel drift or want to see some modified stock cars burn some rubber, you know where to catch the action!
