Driveway Austin For Sale

Recommended Posts

I have a feeling they're quite upside down on the loan from building the facility, such that selling the property will only reduce their loan, and not actually free up 11 million..

Maybe the owners are planning on using the money to buy up and renovate TWS and still have several million left to sit on top of their freshly burgeoning cash cow.


A boy can dream right?


Considering how they operate Driveway Austin, I would not want them to buy TWS. 


I would prefer that Track Junkies buy it. But one can only dream. D:

How much are they asking for TWS? If 100 of us committed to $300/month we could afford around 4.5mm not including income from events.


I'm sure there is way more to this track ownership thing, but as mentioned prior... dreaming

Looking at the picture in the ad, they're sitting between a river and a creek. I'd bet that's probably in the flood plain and houses would be unlikely.

Austin's Prop B covers the sale of the Driveway property back to the city as parkland.  Seems like Oracle made a deal with Dollahite he couldn't refuse.


It would be awesome if austin parks and rec could run the track, like the 'ring: make it public.
