HPD South Coast Fun Run to Galveston Island. Sunday November 13th.
S! MotoHouston Riders!
Houston Performance Driving will be hosting it's famous South Coast Fun Run to Galveston Island. The date will be Sunday November 13th, 2011. Come join some of some of the fastest from the "Power City" in a fun filled, high energy cruise along the Texas Gulf Coast to Historic Galveston Island. HPD is all about high performance cars, trucks, and bikes! We are looking to have a solid group of enthusiasts that can have fun, and still be safe. This will be one of the best cruises you will take all year long. If you have been on a HPD S.C.F.R. to Galveston in the past. You know it's DEEP!
I. South Coast Cruise Outline:
- South Side Meet Location: Roll in @ 10AM w/ roll out @ 12:30PM. There will be (1) meet location for this event. The location will be the Racer's Edge car wash @ 1980 Country Place Pkwy Pearland, TX 77584. While the facility sits on the access road of 288 N., you must enter the car wash from the road behind the lot. The lot is located on County Rd 94 between McHard Rd and Hughes Ranch Rd (County Rd 403). Please Google Map the address to be clear on the entry driveway. Map: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=1980+Country+Place+Pkwy+Pearland,+TX+77584.&hl=en&ll=29.575305,-95.3824&spn=0.010899,0.022638&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=40.545434,92.724609&vpsrc=6&hnear=Country+Pl+Pkwy,+Pearland,+Brazoria,+Texas+77584&t=h&z=16
- Car Wash: The folks @ Racer's Edge will be ready for those that want to get their ride cleaned before rolling out. The cut off time for the wash is Noon. In fear of not getting through the wash and missing roll out. No new cars should be in line for the wash. However, we are very confident that the car wash staff will be able to accommodate everyone that wants a wash. Plus this way we'll all be looking good rolling down the freeway. Also Racer's Edge has a nice lounge a "club house" with couches and big screen TV. Please relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
- Safety Briefing: 15 minutes before roll out the HPD Staff will host a safety briefing on the South Coast Fun Run. It will be important for anyone going on the cruise to hear. This will be a 110% SAFE cruise. Racing of any kind will not be tolerated. Please be SAFE, be SMART, and stay SHARP!!
- Roll Out: Will be @ 12:30PM!
- Buc-eeee's Pit Stop: The cruise will stop at Buc-eeeeeeee's for fuel, refreshment, and restroom break. We will be stopping at the Buccess @ 598 East Hwy 332, Lake Jackson, TX 77566.

- San Luis Pass Toll Bridge: HPD has a system that will get +300 cars through the toll bridge in 15 minutes. Tolls are $2 for each ride. The system will be explained at the south side meet location. This system has worked many times for us in the past with zero issues. Please have $2 cash, this toll bridge is not a E-Z Tag controled crossing. Your Harris County E-Z Tag will NOT work.
- The Spot: The final stop of the cruise will be at The Spot for meals and beverages @ 3204 Seawall Blvd, Galveston, Texas 77550.
