2017 TDRA Texana 180 Race To Midnight

This race is all about having a good time and enjoying the Texana Ranch. Texana is roughly 5000 acres of desert racing, exotic animals, a great swimming pool and good summer fun! With RV hookups and camping available, the grounds are a great place to stay, but if you need a hotel they are about 6 miles from the track. The mid-day pre-run will allow some of the racers a time to get out of the heat if needed and time for others to make final adjustments on the cars prior to the afternoon race. The entire loop will be open to pre-running and GPS files will be available. The evening event will be a 180 mile race starting early evening running until midnight so have your lights out and be ready to go!

Bikes return to Texana as well! Be sure to preregister, we’re requiring 10 preregistered Motos by July 1 or the bike race will be called off.

All of the 2017 races will be trophy awards only with a year end points payout.
