T be on the safe side I would get with someone else who is gonna do the trackday also and get an idea/estimate on travel time from Houston + setup tech inspection and whatnot. tag along with somebody and you should be good to go.

When I head out to TWS (Texas World Speedway), I normally leave the house around 5AM.
It takes about an hour and a half average 70mph.
It's not a good idea to haul with your bike in the back of the truck or on a trailer.
Also, once you get on highway 6, there are always nasty state troopers waiting for you.
You can't even do 5-10mph over the speed limit.

All depends on what side of town your coming from.

West = 1.5 hours
Downtown = 1.5
Northwest = 1.0
Southwest = 2.0
South 2.5ish?
North = 1.5
Northeast = 2.0ish?
East = 3.0ish?
Southest = 3.0ish?

You slow down with a trailer?

We usually leave at 5:30 am. It takes us 1 hour and maybe 10 min to get there with a trailer. (We do slow down when hauling!).

From the Pasadena area it is about 90 miles give or take where you live. So typically 2 hours drive.

Im sorry, but Ive got to disagree with you here. I live In CS and have made the ride/drive from CS to Houston more times that I care to remember.
If you're going 80mph(which is condoning illegal behavior Mr. Moderator) then there is no way it takes 2 hours to get from 8 and 290 to CS.
I could make it from Baytown to the north side of brazos county in less than 1:45, and that was not speeding.
