The Southwest's most famous dirt track served as the main scene of the documentary "Dirt: A Season Inside the Devil's Bowl." The film follows the World Class Street Stock team at the legendary Devil's Bowl Speedway, as the racers careen on and off the track toward the season championship. Racing season is currently in full swing, and tickets are available at the box office. Be sure to mark your calendars for the Fourth of July race that will include an 18-minute fireworks show.
The long-running USA Network hit "Walker, Texas Ranger" was shot in and around Mesquite. One of the most recognizable locations includes the Mesquite Arena, home to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo. After the detective finishes a dynamic performance of bull riding and signs a few autographs, Walker takes the time to battle it out with some rodeo clowns. See the same bull riding performance by professional riders at the Mesquite Championship Rodeo this summer. Purchase your tickets at VisitMesquiteTX.com/RodeoTickets.
