Laps for Charity, TX September 10th

SCC Texas | Events | Laps for Charity II

I've heard from some local people that the VIP is the best route:
The $250 gets you 5 laps around the track, 2 event tshirts, a picture with your car on victory lane, and a dinner for 2 in the club looking over the track.

I guess the $250 covers one car with 2 people. Sounds like fun to me!

Just remember at Texas Motor Speedway to turn left, then left, then left and left again.

$250 Is not bad. 5 laps, picture and diner. I wonder if you have to follow a pace car.

The wife and I have attended a couple of the laps for charity events at the speedway, once with the Prowler group and once with the Ford GT. Each time they had a car up front and a trailing car to keep you inline, no passing is allowed. The number of cars allowed at one time varied but it was around 10.

Speeds varied form 70 to 90 but as the night passed they loosened up a little. You learn to work the system a little by having the first car in your line "push" the pilot car and the rest slow down to allow about half the track as a gap. Then you can run the speed up to a more respectable number.

Even with the rules they impose it is still a fun event.
