2014 TEXAS MOTORPLEX SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED COMPLETE WITH NEW FEATURE EVENTS INCLUDING GREAT BULL RUN
29th Annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals Slated for Sept. 18-21, 2014
ENNIS, Texas (Nov. 26, 2013) – The 2014 Texas Motorplex event schedule has been released with fan-favorite events, new events and more options for entertainment at one of the historic facilities of North Texas.
Each season thousands of NHRA fans flock to the Motorplex for the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals on the traditional date. The 2014 event, scheduled for Sept. 18-21, will be another hotly contested playoff event featuring the world’s best drag racers vying for valuable championship points at the famous all concrete facility.
A new event to the Motorplex calendar that is already causing quite a buzz will be The Great Bull Run on April 5. This rain-or-shine event is an experience unlike any other as The Great Bull Run brings the Spanish tradition of the running of the bulls to the United States! Participants will face the adrenaline rush of a lifetime as they are pursued by 1,500-pound bulls stampeding down a quarter-mile course, then celebrate with thousands of thrill-seekers in a massive, day-long festival that also features our insane tomato food fight, Tomato Royale! Tickets are on sale now at www.thegreatbullrun.com
While the event season will officially kick off with the exotic reptile show, Repticon, on Feb. 1-2, the racing season starts with a two-day RacingJunk.com Motorplex Bracket race, Feb. 22-23. In addition to guaranteed payouts for racers, RacingJunk.com will add special prizes to each of their bracket and Fast Friday events.
Multi-Latin Grammy winning Don Omar will be back at Texas Motorplex pulling double-duty again as he races and performs during his DRAGMANIA event, March 22-23. The fan favorite singer performs on stage after he’s competed against top-tier talent on the drag strip. Race day tickets include concert seating with VIP ticket packages being announced soon.
Long-time fan favorites of every Motorplex season are back in 2014 as well. NHRDA will host the NHRDA Texas Diesel Nationals on April 12 before coming back for the World Finals on Oct. 4.
Import Face Off will again host two events in 2014: March 2 and Nov. 9.
Racing is always the top priority at Texas Motorplex as it celebrates nearly 30 years of being the best racing facility in North Texas. There will be a 10-race bracket series, the Summit E.T. Bracket Finals, more than a dozen Fast Friday street legal events, several Ultimate Street Night events on special Saturdays throughout the season and much, much more.
And if racing a vehicle wasn’t challenging enough, the Rugged Maniac 5k mud run obstacle course will be back as well. More than 2,000 participants made it through the first ever set of 20 obstacles when the event made its debut in November, but many more are sure to gather friends and try to race the course and get through the mud, jumping fire, going down slides and more. Rugged Maniac will be held at the Motorplex Oct. 11 and registration will open soon, so stay tuned.
Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed. Built in 1986, Texas Motorplex has been the place of many drag racing milestones and world record performances. The Billy Meyer-owned facility hosts a number of racing and car show events between March and November each year and also features the Champion’s Club – an 11,000 square-foot facility – that serves fully catered events throughout the year.
