    Truck and Tractor Pulls are in what area?

    Elwell Family Park is located on the northwest end of the Fairgrounds. There is a new gate (Gate 13) just outside of the park. Trams will run from the parking lot to the gate. If you walk through the main gate (Gate 11) or the DART gate (Gate 10), it is a straight walk to the north.
