Holsworth Acres — Garnett, KS
Holsworth Acres (as we’ve named it) is a 10-acre pasture owned by long-time Kansas City Region SCCA member Lenard Holsworth located just south of Garnett, KS and just north of Kincaid, KS. This was the site of our very first RallyCross in the Fall of 2012 and continues to be the site for our season opener and our finale, before growing season and after the last mowing. Although a bit far away for lunch, there are plenty of fine restaurants and a couple hotels and B&Bs in Garnett. Check out their website, ExperienceGarnettKS.com to learn more.
Coordinates for the site are approximately
38° 7′ 26.90″ N
95° 8′ 15.66″ W

The nearest intersection is Texas Road and SW 700th Road. I took US 169 south of Garnett to US 59/Route 31. You will want to allow 1.5 to 2 hours travel time, depending on where you are coming from.
If you plan to camp out before or after an event, please contact Lenard Holsworth:
