this will be the last cmra weekend for 2014, but there is still a race planned at TWS (Texas World Speedway) for 2015 (should be in March).

there are track days on the schedule for the first half of 2015, as well. (I believe the track closes June 1st or thereabouts.)

you just gotta keep a good race line, if youre making mistakes and trying to haul it'll def be less forgiving.

My comment was because of the several crashes and the crowd holiday track days usually bring.

Track surface is fine, not great but also not sure terrible.

This weekend is going to be epic at TWS (Texas World Speedway)!
It's the last closing season for CMRA at TWS (Texas World Speedway).
It's going to be a perfect weather weekend for those of you who might want to come out and be part of this event. Make a group ride, bring you tent, sleep over and enjoy the party.
They are having a Halloween contest with prizes, Sweet Williams BBQ all weekend long, DJ will be playing, Carnival games, raffles and auctions to help the injured rides and much more...
