Moving to Houston from Clearwater FL....

and no, I'm not a FL squid. Florida roads absolutely suck, and I'm thinking Houston's going to be about the same, if not worse. Am I correct in this assumption?

Welcome to MH

When you venture away from the city up my way there are some pretty good roads

Welcome, Track Days are texan specialty.

Near Houston: MSR-H; GSS.
College station: TWS (Texas World Speedway)
Near Dallas: Eagles Canyon and MSR Cresson.
Near Austin: Harris Hill.

There are a lot TD scheduled (more than your pocket can handle).

correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Houston is the 3rd largest city in the US. NYC and LA are the only 2 ahead of us
