National off-road racing competition could take place in New Mexico

News Briefs

A gravel pit could end up bringing big business to eastern New Mexico. 

A 160-acre plot of land north of Tucumcari could become the next hot spot for off-road racing.

The man who leases the land, along with other local businesses, wants to host a national competition this August. 

Plans are still in the works, but organizers say major cleanup of the area has to be done first.
