Are you ready for a challenge? Get ready! Rugged Maniac is coming to Texas Motorplex on November 9.

RUGGED MANIAC CHALLENGES ALL WHO STEP ON TEXAS MOTORPLEX GROUNDS WITH A 5k OBSTACLE COURSE

 20-Obstacle Course and Festival Comes to the Motorplex Nov. 9

 

ENNIS, Texas (Oct. 8, 2013) – Looking for your next adventure? How about a day filled with epic obstacles, live bands and plenty of beer all at a location known for being in the extreme sport business right here in the greater DFW area?

Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race has you covered! Texas Motorplex is proud to host the Nov. 9 Rugged Maniac event for the first time ever. Rugged Maniac has been hosting the most dynamic, extreme and fun events for years and are constantly recognized for putting on some of the nation’s best obstacle course events.

Here’s how it works: Sign up for the race and you’ll get a chance to run our 3.1-mile course filled with 20+ obstacles designed to push you to your limits! While you’re waiting for your turn on the course, you’ll get to hang out with thousands of other maniacs in the festival area where you can ride mechanical bulls, play muddy tug-o-war, pretend to be a kid in our adult bounce houses, or just hang out and listen to the bands while enjoying some tasty food or beverages. Not only that, but each runner gets a high-quality t-shirt, free professional race photos and a beer (if 21 or over) with their registration!

Are you ready to be challenged? Get your costume together, grab a team of friends and prepare for epic fun on a 5k course filled with unique obstacles.

Rugged Maniac courses feature at least twenty obstacles constructed by an experienced crew of licensed contractors. These aren’t the pop-up kiddie obstacles you’ll see at other races. You’ll climb over walls up to 20’ high, slide down a 100’ water slide, jump over fire, crawl through tunnels of mud and face a host of other challenges all while running through a combination of forests, fields, motocross tracks and ski slopes! And unlike the other guys, we hate to see back-ups on our courses so we limit each wave of runners to 300 maniacs to avoid overcrowding.

In short, Rugged Maniac strikes the perfect balance between fun and physicality with our day-long party and award-winning course. That’s why Men’s Journal named Rugged Maniac one of the best obstacle races in the country. Want more reviews? Check out what people are saying about Rugged Maniac on Facebook.

Low T Center Military Day Planned at Texas Motorplex

LOW T CENTER MILITARY DAY PLANNED AT TEXAS MOTORPLEX

Military members to receive free tickets to AAA Texas Fall Nationals

ENNIS, Texas (Aug. 27, 2013) – Texas Motorplex is proud to announce its first Low T Center Military Day, a chance to give a little back to the brave men and women who protect the country by offering them the experience of NHRA’s high-octane, high-speed drag racing for free.

On Sat., Sept. 21, active and reserve U.S. service members with valid military ID will receive a free admission to the AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals. The special day has been made possible through the patriotic support of Mike and Mikala Sisk, co-founders of Low T Center, which diagnoses and treats men with low testosterone levels nationwide.

“Mickala and I feel there is no better combination that demonstrates testosterone than that of Low T Center Military Day and the NHRA,” Mr. Sisk said. “We feel honored to show our appreciation for those who put themselves in harm’s way to provide safety for our families and loved ones. Thank you for keeping America safe.”

Although a longtime goal, this is the first time the Motorplex has been able to offer free tickets to the military. With several military installations in the track’s region — including Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve, Fort Hood Army and Sheppard Air Force bases — Motorplex officials are delighted for the opportunity to express their gratitude for the efforts service members put forth each day in safeguarding the nation.

“We have been wanting to honor military personnel in a special way and we are thrilled that Low T Center is going to offer free tickets during the premier event of the Motorplex season,” Texas Motorplex President/GM Gabrielle Stevenson, said. “It’s a privilege to be able to help host this special Low T Center Military Day.”

The U.S. Armed Forces have long been linked with the all-American sport of drag racing.

Abandoned military runways were a boon to the growth of the sport in its early days, and the Goleta air base near Santa Barbara, Calif. is said to be the site of the first organized drag race in 1949.

NHRA founder Wally Parks was a military tank test-driver for General Motors and a U.S. Army serviceman serving South Pacific during World War II before devoting his career to drag racing.

And, of course, the U.S. Army is the current and longtime sponsor of driver Tony “The Sarge” Schumacher’s Top Fuel drag racing team. Schumacher is a five-time winner at the Motorplex.

The 28th annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals will take place Sept. 19 – 22 and draw tens of thousands of racers and fans to the historic Ennis race track.  The Fall Nationals will feature some of the biggest names in racing, including John Force, Fort Worth native and Top Fuel winner Spencer Massey, Top Fuel rookie Brittany Force and many more. The event is the second of six playoff events in the NHRA’s Countdown to 1 championship playoff system.
