Default Final TxMC events for 2011

well, i have the last 2 event dates. I've been trying to figure out where to squeeze in another, but it's not looking good. These are definite, if you guys have any suggestions for a 3rd, i'm willing to listen.

Sat. October 8th Harris Hill Road
It's a members track day, gotta thank zx-tex for making this happen as he is a total member. lol,...there might not be timing available so we will have to be ready to help each other with this. Nice thing is it's open track day format so we can go out whenever we're ready and get some timed laps. Also, don't forget about the noise limit! if you think your car may be too loud, have a backup plan. A cheap muffler with a slip fitting or bolt on flange isn't very expensive and can prevent field fires.

Sat. November 26th Texas World Speedway
Nasa Tx. event. there will be amb timing and transponder rentals

There is an open track day @ TWS on Fri. Oct. 28th available if you guys wanna do another event this season and can deal with only 3 weeks between H2R and TWS.

I know I will be out for the October 8th race as we have Lemons the weekend before at MSR-H. I should be good at the November 26th depending on family plans for Thanksgiving.

I'll do the HHR and turkey race in November. I might have a van sooner than later too. You're all going to lose.

Some say that he only wants a van for the additional space so that his awesomeness does not hang out of the window and scare people off the road. And that the van must have 15" wheels so he can share tires with his track car, because Track Gods set lap records on all-season tires.

All we know is, he is called The Hustler.

Damn it... After telling me October 8th was available as a member day, H2R just sent out an e-mail stating they are having some kind of big BBQ and time trial event on October 8th. Here is the description...

Quote:
Saturday October 8th from 9:00 to 6:00 – The H2R Clockwise / Counter Clockwise Time Trial and Bar-B-Que.

In the weeks leading up to this event, the schedule will reflect which direction the track is run. This will allow participants to practice in both directions. During the event, we will have a time trial in the morning in one direction. We’ll break for Bar-B-Que and run an afternoon time trial in the other direction. This will be more about the driver than the car. The podium will not only be determined by the combined fastest times, but also who ran the most consistently between the two directions. For example, if I drive a hot lap clockwise in 1:00 and a hot lap counter clockwise in 2:00, my combined time is 3:00. But the differential is one whole minute. If you drive a 1:30 cw, and a 1:30 ccw your time is also 3:00 but you knocked me off the podium because your differential was zero. Here’s the best part: the three podium finishers are given the prize of being able to give a $2,500.00 membership to a buddy who wants to join but can’t justify or come up with the initial membership fee. Please register with us no later than September 24th so we can get a head-count on how much B-B-Q we need to have catered. Finally, in the event that it’s raining cats and dogs on the 8th, we’ll set aside October 22nd as a make-up date.
Hmm... not sure if this is a member only day or not, but I'll find out. And find out what the entry fees are for non-members if they can come. I have also asked if October 9th will be a regular member day in case we have to move to that.

weekend after! Or, if we can run during that event, we could count each direction as a separate event for season points. double the trophies would mean $20 per driver for TxMC to cover costs. let us know a.s.a.p.
*EDIT* reading it again, it sounds like a members only deal. so the following weekend, or if it's too up in the air, we will just do 2 TWS final events.

I have a random question for you guys. Does Texas World Speedway have an entry fee? Say I just happened to be in Texas around the end of November and wanted to come hang out that weekend at the track with you gays. Could I get in and camp?

yes, you could get in and camp/hangout. no there shouldn't be an entry fee, but there has been some controversy over this at the last couple events. recently they started charging to "drop off" your car/trailer before an event, or, strangely (is that spelled right?) a cheaper charge if your coming and camping out. (i.e. staying with your vehicle?) although, if your pulling in with a rental impala, or your personal truck or car without stickers or the appearance of tracking a vehicle, there is no charge. or shouldn't be. sorry i couldn't be more help. if there is a charge, it would most likely be a one time charge of $10-15 for the weekend. Also note, the gate closes @ 10pm and won't open again till 6am. so get there before that and don't expect to leave afterwards. Although, our fearless NASA region leader is supposed to do something about the locked gate, and the fee if possible.

The following weekend is no good. I will be out of town. The e-mail I sent to H2R was replied to by an auto responder since the track is closed right now. I should hear something next week.

Thanks for the info. I have been considering taking a trip to Texas for a while and hitting up a track weekend to hang out would be a ton of fun.

I have a sofa for you in Dallas. However, there will be rape. Are you planning on brining your guns?

If you don't resist it will not be rape.

Seriously though, I live 7-minutes from DFW airport and plan to have a party van and if you come here when the weather is nice you can borrow my daily or the van instead of renting a car.

The actual plan is a road trip out to Texas in the boosted miata to visit all the big cities. I want to hit San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and maybe Houston. If I can plan the trip where I spend a weekend at one of the tracks hanging out it would be even better. Really who wants to go to NC for Thanksgiving to see family instead of exploring Texas? Ultimately the trip is to figure out where I like and would possibly want to move to next summer.
