There is a CMRA race in October, so it's good until the end of the year.

Last I heard was the Bluebonnet people are buying it and renovating it instead of building a new track.

I was talking to a utility contractor out of College Station last week down in LaPorte and he said that he heard the developer backed out on the masterplan community due to abnormally high infrastructure costs. I bet there were additional red flags along with dirt movement that proved to be too much dinero to make a profit. Keep in mind, this is coming from someone who lives/works out of CS so no telling the validity of his statements..

I do like what Sol just posted above.

I was told there was contaminated soil and that is what the unusually high infrastructure costs were.

The Driver's Edge has a trackday planned there in December, BUT...a major sinkhole developed between 5 and 6 so there's going to have be some work done before any activities of any kind (either home development or racing) is done there.

When I was there in June they had cones and tape near the turning point of T6, must have developed into something much worse..

Well, contaminated sink holes and overhanging low altitude humidity are delaying the transmogrification of the underlying carbon bootprint and deflating the gates to which the aholes would deliver such material as to remove herein stated contaminates.

TWS (Texas World Speedway) is like the carpet place that has been having "going out of business" sales for 20 years.

just got this from the performance driving school. So TWS (Texas World Speedway) is definitely open in 2017. Although the below schedule is for cars, I'm sure Ridesmart and CMRA will be scheduling 2017 dates as well.

Good afternoon everyone.
It had been confirmed that Texas World Speedway will be open in 2017 for the full year.

Upcoming PDS dates are as follows:

November 19-20, 2016 (Green group on a wait list)
December 17-18, 2016 (Registration opens next week)
January 28-29, 2017
February 18-19, 2017
March 11-12, 2017
April 15, 2017 (1-Day event)
May 6-7, 2017

These dates are subject to change. Keep an eye on the TWS (Texas World Speedway) calendar and clubregistration for updates.

Thank you,
Levica Smith
Registrar, PDS at TWS (Texas World Speedway)
