A small track around the historic McKamy Spring in Richardson, Texas. The track has a diameter of around 100m with a total distance of only 219m which makes it suitable for any RC vehicle for all ages. It was once used by the Native Americans as a water source while hunting for buffalos on the open prairie.

The inscription at the location conveys the following.

Before any European or American settlers entered Texas, Native American tribes passed through the Richardson area and likely camped around what is now known as McKamy Spring. These tribes met with settlers, one of the friendliest being the Yoiuane (later absorbed by the Tonkawa). Comanche, Kiowa, Kickapoo, Seminoles and Cherokee around north Texas may have also used McKamy Spring, one of the few natural above ground springs still in existence in the area. The early American settlement of Breckenridge, which preceded Richardson, made frequent use of the spring then known as Bowser Spring. After a railroad line was built nearby, Breckenridge faded away as the new town of Richardson was built closer to the railroad. By 1925, the town became officially incorporated with Thomas McKamy as its first mayor. – HMDB
