Texas Mini Grand Prix Season Opener

I want to invite folks to come out to the opening weekend of the TMGP season. Gate fee will be $10 for single day or $12 for both days.

Saturday 3-2-13will be the sprint races, with the races starting at 12:30
Sunday 3-3-13will be the endurance race starting at 11:00



Directions to Katy
From Houston take I10 West
From Brookshire take I10 East
Exit Pederson Road
Go North to US90 turn left,
Go to FM 2855 and turn right.
Go 5 miles, turn right on Stockdick Road
the track will be on your left.

If you have never been to the mini gp race you are in for a treat.

nothing... just show up saturday.. pay your annual dues and entry fees and go race...
gate fee for saturday will be $10 (12 for the weekend)
membership is 30 or 35...
entry fee will be about 70 for the first 3 races you enter and 5 per race after that...
you will have a blast and sense you already race CMRA there will be people there you already know. Mark, Joey, Deano, Jeff, alan, scott, patrick.. and several more.

I plan on being there when the gates open if I can get the bike back together. The boy is excited. You ready for Dirt Wars? Looks like your boy is racing too?

Oh ok I thought I saw two names that matched yours and figured maybe one of you sons was racing too. I never raced anything so I fully expect to not even make the mains. All about fun for me.

I don't really know what to expect Satuday, it sounds like there will be a lot of first timers, myself included. At least I came out to watch the last weekend of last season. They draw the rounds at random at the beginning of the day right? That F7 race with Novice and Expert is going to be epic, how many riders will be allowed to race at once?

I think I'm gonna bring out my flat track 150 and slap on some slicks and give TMGP another go in endurance on Sunday. How many hours is the endurance race?

A picture is worth about 40 words. Closer to Houston than you'd expect...that's Katy mills in the lower right corner of the shot....

Exit I 10 at the Love's truck stop. Grab some Arby's for me. Head north, then west, then north and you are there in 5 minutes from I-10.
