If you're not paying attention at Royal Purple Raceway, you might miss the race. That's because the venue features a quarter-mile drag strip where racers accelerate from 0 to 300 mph in four seconds. Built in 1988, the straightaway now attracts national NHRA drag races and shares the spotlight with a newer quarter-mile dirt track. Although the raceway attracts national events, including the annual Super Chevy auto show, its owners and operators, the Angel family, hail from Texas and instinctively support and preserve the local culture.
A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that reveals areas a child may need help in and serves as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds' particular needs, covering subjects that include math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Polymaths looking to increase their potential can use their customized tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring's progress. All six Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon to accommodate busy estival schedules.

In addition to fishing and hunting onsite, the staff also maintains a fire pit and picnic area and an air-conditioned event facility.
Illusion Institute takes its name from the ultimate illusionists: basketball players. They’ll feign a dribble to the left, then charge to the right. They’ll fake a pass, then take a shot. The trainers keep their illusionist students sharp with private or group basketball training, camps, and game recording.
