Banked Track Bonanza

Lonestar Rollergirls host national roller derby tourney this weekend

Banked Track Bonanza

Last year, the LA Derby Dolls hosted the first ever banked track roller derby inter-league tournament of the modern derby era: But as any derby fan knows, eventually all tracks lead to Austin. So it's no surprise that this weekend the biggest names in the sport head to the Austin Convention Center for Capital Punishment: Battle on the Bank II.

Aside from hometown hosts the TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls, the California contingent will be here in force with LADD and sister league the San Diego Derby Dolls in town. Throw in Oklahoma's Red Dirt Rebellion Rollergirls (amongst others), and there'll also be some flat trackers learning to skate with the curve, including the Arizona Derby Dames and Corpus Christi's Hurricane Alley Roller Derby.

We'll have more coverage over the next couple of days, so check back in for more details about the biggest event in the banked track year: Tickets available now.
