This Saturday, Texas Motorplex will be holding an Open Test & Tune for all racers and fans. Gates open at 10am and we will turn the 1st tire at 11:00am. We will be running all day till DARK. Come out and meet our staff, tune your car, and stop by our Concession Stands to try one of our NEW Jr. Slider Cheeseburgers for only $1.50. Gate Prices for Saturday are $15 to race, $10 to watch. All racers who attend the Test & Tune Saturday, are welcome to stay overnight for the Sunday kickoff of our 2009 O’Reilly Bracket Series!! Be sure you arrive before 5pm to attend our Test & Tune. Once our gates close we will not be allowing rigs to enter the facility until Sunday morning.

Sunday, March 1st kicks off our 2009 O’Reilly Bracket Series.  JR. Gates will open at 8:00am with racing beginning at 8:45am. Our Bracket Gates will open at 11:30am with racing beginning at 12:30pm. NEW FOR THIS SEASON, for our Bracket Program we will be running Quick 16 in the 1/8th mile! Bring your car out this Sunday and race for a chance to win a FREE Reher-Morrison Racing Engine Building School entry for March 21st-22nd.  Be sure to stop by our Onion Bomb stand and try out our NEW “Onion Bomb”. A colossal 20oz. Texas Sweet onion, marinated, cut, breaded, battered and deep fried to a crispy, golden brown and served with your choice of Ranch or Red Spicy Cajun Dipping Sauce.  Also try our new Chicken Fried Steak On-A-Stick platter served on top of French Fries, and a Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich. Quench your thirst with a tall glass of our Made-from-scratch “fresh brewed” Raspberry or Peach iced tea.

Following our Racer Orientation last week, we would like to clarify a few details for our O’Reilly Bracket Series:

 This season we will be running the Jr Program in the mornings and the Bracket Program in the afternoon.  There will be two different gate times posted. We ask that you please respect the posted gate times in order for both Programs to benefit. Our Sunday, March 1st Gate Times will be 8am for the Jr Program, and 11:30am for the Bracket Program. For a full year gate time schedule visit O’Reilly Bracket Racing Series Race Info


Bye runs will be determined by drawing from the lanes. The 1st number drawn will be the lane. The 2nd number drawn will be the number of cars back in that lane. That car will be pulled to the side until the last set of cars is paired up to run. If there is a straggler to the lanes and the last pair is already pulled out of the lanes and is to the “Do Not Change Dial-In Past This Point” sign, located under the tower, the straggler will be disqualified and the Bye run will be paired up with the last run car. The Bye run will have lane choice, and the bye WILL NOT carry on to the next round. If there is an even number of cars and the Bye run has to be paired against another car, the Bye run will have lane choice, and the Bye WILL NOT carry on to the next round. Each round there will be another drawing for the Bye run. If a pair of cars proceeds past the “Do Not Change Dial-In Past This Point” sign and a car breaks, then the other car will receive a competition bye and will not be paired up with another car. In this event, there will be a competition bye, as well as the drawn Bye run.


At each Jr event, our friends at Target Restoration will be awarding a 3ft trophy to the “BEST APPEARING CREW” for the Jr. Drag Teams. We will be taking a team photo in our NEW Winner Circle and posting this team on our website the following week! So Jr’s and crew, show your team colors and you can take home a 3ft trophy and bragging rights for Texas Motorplex “BEST APPEARING CREW”!!

Jr. Drivers will have a chance to participate in our “RUN FOR THE TROPHY” race each Jr Event. This event will be following our 2nd Time Trial Class for Jr.’s. This one lap race will cost $10 to enter. Each car will display a dial-in and the closest to their dial-in will receive a trophy!! 100% of the entries will go towards our Jr. Drag Racing League Western Conference Finals Team. Help support our team, and take a chance at taking home a trophy in our “RUN FOR THE TROPHY” Showdown!
