Official Hotel Information

Since 2008 the Omni Hotel has been our primary host hotel, however, this year, we are making a change.  While the Omni will still be an option, the official host hotel is changing to the Houston Marriott Westchase.  This hotel is a few miles further away but it’s still located in a great spot near Beltway 8 and Westheimer Road.  We are making the change because the Omni has limited our total available rooms.  This is due to the fact that Omni cannot guarantee access to the “trailer parking lot” that was located behind the Conoco gas station. Therefore they have limited parking.  They are also planning to implement a policy that each car that enters the hotel property must have a “parking pass”.  These parking passes will be handed out to guests upon check in.

Wednesday March 12, 2014 and Thursday March 13, 2014 - TX2K Roll Race Nationals

TO:  All interested in participating or attending the TX2KTM Roll Race Nationals
FROM:  Peter Blach, Founder TX2K™ and Promoter

ANNOUNCING TX2K™ ROLL RACE NATIONALS AT TEXAS WORLD SPEEDWAY


I’m incredibly excited to bring this type of event to our TX2K™ family!  This year we are suspending the Road Racing event and in its place will be the first ever TX2K™ Roll Race Nationals!

DATES:  We are going to start a day early, gates open at TWS on Wednesday, March 12th at 7:00 am and the event will be all day the 12th, finishing around 2:00 pm on Thursday March 13th.  Wednesday will have us focusing on acclimation runs, grudge matches and starting to qualify for three classes.  I’m working on a hotel deal in the Bryan/College Station area for Tuesday and Wednesday night and I’ll share information as soon as I have it.  Specific start times and schedules will be forthcoming.

NUMBER OF CARS:  Number of cars will be limited to approximately 120; sponsors of TX2K14 had the opportunity to grab a spot prior to them becoming available to the public and they have taken approximately 40 of the 120.  Therefore I have about 80 spots left.

COST: Price is $260 per car.  This is non-refundable, however you can transfer an entry if your car cannot make it (subject to my approval – Peter Blach).  Keep in mind that non-refundable means that if the weather ends up cancelling the event, there are no refunds.  I cannot control the weather but I will have to pay for venue and insurance long before the event.

CAR QUALIFICATIONS:  The first round of entrants will all need to be ABOVE 800WHP.  I reserve the ability to add in lower HP cars later.

HOW DO YOU LOCK IN A SPOT:  You must email the following information to tx2kenterprises@yahoo.com : Full Name, Car Year, Car Make/Model, Car whp, also include where you read the instructions to sign up (what forum?  Facebook?).  I am limiting the number of entries that will be allowed to approximately 120 so as to have an event that isn’t too full and one that allows for as many side by side races as possible.  If you do not include all of the information requested above I will simply delete your email.

CAR RULES:  Specific details will follow, BUT in the spirit of the type of event TX2K has been for the past 15 years, we are looking for STREET CARS.  That means no tubbed drag cars, no lexan only race cars, no fiber glass body race cars, etc…  Also, skinnies will NOT be allowed, cars will need to run a DOT approved tire.

GATE FEE:  $20 per person per day (this includes racers, spectators, sponsors, etc) to get into the facility.  No exceptions to this rule.

STRUCTURE:  Cars will qualify into one of three classes.  The top 16 cars will be in the Unlimited bracket, the next 16 will be in the Super Sport bracket and the next 16 will be in the Sport bracket. Grudge matches (callouts) will be allowed as well and a more formal structure around call outs is forthcoming.   We will have a VHT tractor and a crew responsible for “prepping” the first 500-600 ft. of the run area.

AWARDS: I am expecting to run the semi-finals and finals for all three classes after lunch on Thursday and then we will have the award presentation with the top two in all three classes receiving awards.

HOW THE RACING WORKS:  The cars will be paired up in the hot pits and proceed to the end of the hot pit road at the base of Nascar Turn 1 (N1).  The cars will leave pit road and pace each other for almost half a mile as they climb the banking.  By the middle of Nascar Turn 2 (N2), the cars will be side by side and approaching the long back straight between N2 and Nascar Turn 3 (N3).  As they exit N2, they pass over a starting line and accelerate for approximately 1500 feet towards N3.  The track is 80’ wide and there will be lane markers.  Cars will then pass over a finish line and have 800+ feet to slow down before reaching the banking.  The middle of the banking between N3 and Nascar Turn 4 (N4) is not particularly smooth, but the high line and the low line are in good shape.  Each car will have plenty of time to slow down and then safely enter the pits at the exit of N4 where an official will hand out slips with MPH numbers to the drivers.  Should the vehicle’s brakes fail, simply continue on the banking down the front straight (b/w N4 and N1).

STARTS:  Both cars will attempt to cross the starting line at the same moment and at the same speed (60 mph).  We will have an official starter and if these two criteria are not met within close tolerance (1/2 car length) then the run will be DQ’d.

SCORING:  When the two cars approach the finish line they will activate a timing system that will calculate their MPH at the end of the run.  First car crossing the finish line wins.  We will have displays, we will be logging all the times, and we are working to have an AM broadcast system so everyone can follow the action.  We will keep boards updated in the paddock/pits area as well.

Posted Image

This picture shows the view of the racing area from atop N3, looking back to N2, so the cars will be racing towards the camera.

SPECTATORS:  We will have some viewing areas setup that will allow for good places to watch the middle and finish of the race.  Additionally, this will be an open paddock event so the spectators can see the cars and talk to the drivers.  The hot pits will likely be restricted to drivers and crews.

VIDEO:  We did a test run with a 1,250rwhp UGR TT LP570 recently and there is a great video put together by our friends and sponsors of TX2K – a 1320Video.com and it is here:

The UGR TT has plenty of room as it heads through N2 towards 1500’ of wide open throttle.

QUESTIONS:  Please send me any questions you may have, I’m happy to share what I know.

Friday March 14, 2014 - Dyno Day Information

The dyno day for TX2K14 will once again be at Lonestar Motorsports Park (www.lonestarmotorsportspark.com)  The dyno day event will be a little different than years past.  Over the last 2 years we've seen a higher number of low whp cars take up the dyno's.  In an effort to put on a show, this year, we are implementing a new rule/strategy.  There will still be 2 dyno's that will be going at the same time (one is an AWD dyno and one is a standard dynojet), Anna Costas will hold the dyno list...sponsors will get priority for dyno time. However, if your car makes LESS than 425 whp SAE corrected (dynojet) and 425 awhp corrected (using the awd dyno), you will be charged $50 for 3 pulls.  That means if you make 424.99 whp you are paying $50.  Any money collected from those that failed to meet the minimum threshold will be paid out to the "highest whp" winner at the end of the day.  If you make over 425 whp, there will be no charge to dyno, as always, it'll be free.  Aside from sponsors, first come first serve to dyno.

Additionally, given that both dyno's broke last year, we will have a tech from dynojet and a tech from the awd dyno company on site with bins full of parts to address any parts/software failures should they occur again.  

Dyno line priority will be as follows: Sponsors, GTR's will skip other makes/models for the AWD dyno, Supra's will skip other makes/models for the dynojet dyno, all other makes models. I urge you to come early if you want to dyno.

Parking: we will have designated Supra and designated GTR only parking.

Directions:
From the host hotel, go WEST on I-10, stay on I-10 WEST for approximately 40-45 miles. Exit Beckendorf Road (Exit 713) and follow signs to LMP.

Sealy, TX 77474
Phone: 979-877-0922

Cost: cost to enter gates for the day is $30/person (if before 5 pm) and is payable at the gate.  This will cover the cost for the dyno day and the cost for the night meet.  You will be able to leave/re-enter.  If you choose to enter the gates after 5 pm and come to the night meet only, cost will be $20/person.  You can purchase a full Fri-Sun pass for $70 that will allow you entry via the Hennessey gate.

Food: concessions will be open all day

Dyno Competition: the categories will be Supra 1st Place, Supra 2nd Place, GTR 1st Place, GTR 2nd Place, Street Car (non Supra, non GTR) 1st Place, Street Car (non Supra, non GTR) 2nd Place.  The first car will hit the dyno at 9:00 am.

Gates open at 8:30 am, we will dyno from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and will shut down right at 5:00 pm.  The night meet activities will start after the dyno day and will continue to approximately 1 am.

Night Meet Information

The NIGHT MEET for TX2K13 will be at Lonestar Motorsports Park (www.lonestarmotorsportspark.com)  While I recognize the location is not ideal, it's the only place where we can control access in/out, where we can police the parking lot to make sure that we are safe and that our cars are safe, where we can offer a bikini contest with no limit on noise, where we can still serve beer (they have a license to serve), where we can serve food...and ultimately where we can keep the type of clientele we don't want...out.  I recognize the things that we need to address from last year, we learned a lot and plan to make some changes.  First off, we will have flood lights that will make it look like day time in the parking fields, this will allow you all to be able to pop hoods and look at cars at night.  Similar to a well lit parking lot, everything will have light.  Last year we had 8 police officers roaming, this year we will have 16-20 officers roaming.  Anyone that does a burnout or drives dangerously on site will be pulled out of line and issued a citation.  Depending on the severity of the offense the police will reserve the right to arrest anyone doing something that endangers the safety of others.  This year we will have the following:

Last year we closed down the park at the end of the Dyno Day and opened the park back up for the Night Meet. This year, we do not plan to do that and once the Dyno Day is finished we will move right into the Night Meet. The schedule will be as follows:
4:30 Dyno Day Awards Presentation
5:00-7:00 ¼ Mile Grudge Racing at Lonestar Motorsports Park, 50 cars, first come first serve, tech cards will be available at the fuel barn FREE OF CHARGE
7:00-8:00 Blind folded Gymkhana Slalom on the track for time…winner gets $500 CASH
9:00-10:00 Burnout contest…winner gets $1,000 CASH
10:00-11:00 BIKINI CONTEST (will be the biggest and best we’ve ever had)

Throughout all of this action the live band will be playing and the track will be serving beer.

Also we are putting 16 high intensity movable lights to light up all the fields and parking areas at Lonestar for the Night Meet. Additionally we will have 16 uniformed Police Officers patrolling the grounds and 10 non-uniformed (plain clothes) officers patrolling the grounds. The event will be well lit and well secured.

Directions:
From the host hotel, go WEST on I-10, stay on I-10 WEST for approximately 40-45 miles. Exit Beckendorf Road (Exit 713) and follow signs to LMP.

Cost: see above under the dyno day section for cost information.

Food: concessions will be open

Gates open for the night meet at 5:00 pm although entrants will be able to come in the morning, hang out at the dyno day and stay without having to leave all the way until the night meet is over, band will start at 10 pm, bikini contest will start at 11:00 pm and we will have the burnout contest and stunting competition mixed in.  We will shut down at 1:00 am.

**of note, the line to enter was backed up onto the highway for the night meet last year, get to the park early to avoid the line...if you can't get their early, pass the exit for Lonestar, go the next exit and u-turn and enter from the opposite direction.

Saturday and Sunday March 15, 16, 2014 - Drag  Racing Information

Just like last 3 years, the plan will be to have test-n-tune and 2 rounds of qualifying on Saturday. 4 years ago the test-n-tune got rained out and so I'm building in that same buffer for 2014. Best case we will have 2-days of drag racing, worst case, only 1 like in 2010.  If by chance rain ruins one of the days, the schedule will change accordingly and will be posted at LMP.

Directions:
From the host hotel, go WEST on I-10, stay on I-10 WEST for approximately 40-45 miles. Exit Beckendorf Road (Exit 713) and follow signs to LMP.

The track will open at 10:00 am on Saturday morning. The track will go hot at 11:00 am and drag racing will continue until 5:00 pm. The schedule on this day will consist of test-n-tune and 2 rounds of qualifying for the next day’s eliminations.

Cost: spectators will pay $20 to LMP on Saturday. Racers will be able to purchase a "2-day tech card" on Saturday (NON-REFUNDABLE if you break on Saturday) for $80 (in addition to the $20 cost to enter). If a racer only wants to run on Sunday, the tech cards will be the same price as last year, $45 (in addition to the $20 cost to enter).

Food: concessions will be open all day

Sunday Schedule: the gates will open at 8:00 am and the track will go hot at 9:00 am. From 9:00 am until 4:00 pm we will have 1 round of qualifying and eliminations. Schedule will be as follows:

10:00 am - qualifying pass 1 (test-n-tune after)
12:00 pm - eliminations round 1 (test-n-tune after)
1:30 pm - eliminations round 2 (test-n-tune after)
3:00 pm - eliminations round 3 (test-n-tune after)
4:00 pm - final round eliminations
There will be a dedicated lane for test-n-tune ALL DAY LONG.

DRAG RACING CLASSES

TEST-N-TUNE
The lanes will be open all day for test-n-tune. This is the perfect venue for you to settle your grudges or to simply have the opportunity to run an UNLIMITED number of times!

GTR Class 1
Stock turbo's, drag radials only (18" wheels and larger) and factory GR6 transmission casing (internal upgrades allowed)

GTR Class 2
Stock turbo housings, drag radials only (18" wheels and larger) and factory GR6 transmission casing (internal upgrades allowed)

GTR Class 3
No turbo restrictions, drag radials only (18" wheels and larger) and factory GR6 transmission casing (internal upgrades allowed)

GTR Class 4
UNLIMITED - in the spirit of things must be GTR body, not a solid rear, fiber glass body shell, etc....  :)

Street Car Class
This class will be administered by a sponsor that is local to Houston named ARD. Thank you to Owen Priest and ARD for helping me put this class together. This class can and should include GTR's, Vettes, Porsche's, Vipers, Supra's, Camaro's, Mustang's, etc...any car is welcome to run in this class so long as the car meets the rules below:

The rules:
--carpet, stock dashboard and full interior from front seats forward (passenger seat may be removed)
--lightweight body panels allowed except roof, quarter panels and doors must remain factory (one piece front ends not permitted)
--inspection sticker required (in the state you live in), must be current
--radio that works is required (which means you need speakers too)
--stock suspension required (all suspension components must be located in the stock locations)
--no tire rule
--no fuel rule
--no power adder rule
--full exhaust required (cut-outs are ok), exhaust must exit in factory location

10.5 Index Class
This class is new to TX2K...we have never had an index class.  Based on the success of this class at the FL2K event and based on the fact that many modern cars with simple bolt ons would fair well in this class, we are going to give it a shot.  Any GTR with bolt ons, C6/C7 with bolt ons, Viper with bolt ons, etc....can run in this class.  This class is brought to you all by Phastek Racing out of Houston, TX.  They put on a street car event in Houston ever year and have also had lots of success with it.

The rules:

--Heads up
--10.50 break out
--any year vehicle permitted
--any type chassis permitted
--any type suspension permitted
--any power adders permitted
--all tires permitted

Stick Shift Challenge
Cost to enter this class is $100 payable to me. The winner will get 75% of the pot and the runner-up will get 25% of the pot (i.e. if there are 8 cars entered, the winner will get $600 and the runner-up will get $200). The only rules are that you must run an H pattern factory based transmission and have stock suspension (all suspension components must be located in the stock locations), no automatics allowed, any car make/model allowed

Any car can enter multiple classes so long as you meet the rules and pay for multiple tech cards.  I am also entertaining the idea of doing an x275 vs. Import

Yes.. curious about the tranny rule. I like the new rules tho.

But are 800whp and 1700whp GTRs still going to be in the same class? fkkkkkkkkkkk

the way I understand the rules is you need to have the factory trans so for example I cant show up with a turbo 400 mated to my VR. I dont think they are going to be taking apart transmissions there so I would think a rule making them have to be 100% stock would be tough to enforce. As for an 800whp and a 1700whp gtr being in the same class sure it can happen if the 1700whp gtr wants to be on a radial but most of the big power cars now are running slicks which I presume will be allowed in class 4 which is where the big dogs will play.

Goonthree - yes, see post #2, holding that spot for RR info!

Transmission Rule - sorry I wasn't more clear.  Factory GR6 transmission essentially means factory casing!  You can have build 1-6 and aftermarket clutch...we are trying to avoid TH400, powerglide, etc....

Thanks,
Peter

Thanks for putting this event on Peter! I know it takes a ton of your time. I'm already getting excited to attend.

I have a couple questions/concerns;

IMHO slicks should be allowed in class 3. The slicks are much less abusive on our expensive GR6 transmissions. For me the traction benefit is great but less wear and tear on the trans is a priority. Hopefully you can look into this and see if this can be added. I am guessing most of the guys running in the class already have slicks on order or are planning on getting a set for the event. It is also safer for the type of power these class 3 cars will be trying to put down.

My other suggestion is that class 3 and 4 run a pro tree. I always think of a sportsman tree for bracket racing.

Regardless I am looking forward to your event. I have said it many times. TX2K is at the very top of my "must attend events". Time to start organizing the Colorado crew for the road trip :)

^ Slicks should be class 4?  Class 3 can be for those high horsepower, more street friendly cars who can still use drag radials.

I'm a little confused about the tires...no ET Streets?
So you can have other brands of drag radials with less tread but not ET streets?

Drag radials being 18" wheels and larger, with drag slicks being everything running a 17 or smaller. The key thing we discussed was someone running a drag radial on a 15" wheel to get into a dr class which would obviously perform much better.

Technically speaking, the mt's we all know and love are ET Street II's.

I personally have no interest whatsoever in watching a "not-quite-GTR" with a different transmission or different motor in one of the GTR classes. They belong in the general not-GTR classes, in my opinion. No offense to anyone currently raping a GTR in that manner--well, I take that back. Some offense intended.

As for class 3 versus 4 and slicks, I can see a rationale for somehow separating the cars that are going to go high-7s and low-8s from the cars that will go mid-to-high-8s. Perhaps 18" or bigger wheel is the way to do it.

I guess "technically" the ET streets are only 15"-17"

Yes Neil, Since I just bought 4-18" ET Street's for front and rear of my car ;-)

I can run them there?

Neil thanks for the clarification. Neil is correct and I will edit the rules to reflect Neil's post. Still working on class 4 rules. Hang tight.
