Lone Star region SCCA is hosting our traditional race, the Lone Star Grand Prix, at Texas World Speedway on Sat & Sun of Memorial Day weekend.  That's May 24th/25th.

Put it on your calendar NOW and plan to experience this race event.  It's our first race there this season, so should be a better than average car count I think.  

We split the cars depending on car type into 6 different race groups, and it is typical for 25-30 car groups in many.  This is a 2.9 mile 15 corner road course.  Experiencing the sound and feel of a pack of race cars grouped together at full song (of the heavy metal variety) is just something to remember.

If you just want to hang out at the track and watch, meet good people, and have a fun time, then show up and walk around the paddock, look at the cars, talk to drivers, crews, and volunteers. 

f you would like to volunteer in a race specialty, we gladly accept first time workers. Let us know prior if you would like to participate in Flagging & Comm, Timing & Scoring, Grid, Sound Control, Tech, etc., and we can direct you on how to sign up.- To volunteer email Brent McNaul (SR Flag Chief) at

This will be a good time for all, please come to College Station and see what SCCA road racing is all about.
