ENNIS, Texas (Feb. 19, 2013) – The deadline for all renewal orders for the 28th annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals at Texas Motorplex has been extended through Friday to give the most loyal fans a few more days to reserve their seats for the fastest race in Texas.

Anyone wanting to renew their ticket orders must do so before Friday at 5 p.m. Once the deadline passes, all seats will be opened for the public ticket sale launch on March 1, 2013.

The AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals is not only one of the highlights of the NHRA professional season, but it’s also the second of six playoff events. Racers who win at the Motorplex have a knack of moving on to the series championship. Two of the event winners in 2012 earned the category championship titles.

The 2012 defending champions are Antron Brown (Top Fueler went on to win the NHRA Full Throttle world championship), Bob Tasca III (Funny Car), Allen Johnson (Pro Stock event champion also went on to claim the world category title), and Michael Ray (Pro Stock Motorcycle).

Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed.

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.

“We create music because we believe in its power to transcend boundaries—of genres, of borders, of
languages. We give our music and our fans everything we have and everything we are.” – INTOCABLE

2013-01-31-CDMTSGroup Members:
Ricardo Javier “Ricky” Muñoz – (Lead Vocalist, Accordion)
René Orlando Martínez – (Drums, Chorus)
Sergio Serna – (Percussion)
Johnny Lee Rosas – (Sixth Bass, Backup Vocalist)
Félix Salinas – (Bass, Chorus)
José Juan Hernández – (Group Motivator and Rhythms)

INTOCABLE is one of the most influential groups in the Tejano/Norteño music scene today. Their road to success began eighteen years ago (nineteen in August) in Zapata, Texas, when friends Ricky Muñoz and René Martínez dreamed of bringing their songs to the world as they crafted a unique and extraordinary style of music which expertly fuses Tejano conjunto music, Norteño folk rhythms and pop ballads.

After years of dedication and passion, the dream is an indisputable reality. With #1 hits such as “Rabarte un Beso” and “Prometí,” as well as other fan favorites like “Dame Un Besito,” “Eres Mi Droga,” Enséñame a Olvidarte,” “Sueña,” “Contra Viento y Marea,” “Llueve,” “Arrepiéntete,” and many more, INTOCABLE continues to entertain and delight audiences in both the United States and Mexico. Their songs are heard in radio stations throughout the American Continent and the band has played live in world renowned venues such as the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City, the Monterrey Arena in Mexico, and the Reliant Astrodome Stadium in Houston, with a historical record of more than 70,000 fans singing along and enjoying one of the best shows in the industry. And to top off an already exceptional career, INTOCABLE made history by being the first and so far only act of their genre to sing the halftime show at the Cowboys vs. Redskins game at the famed Dallas Cowboy Stadium.

Today, the group INTOCABLE is the standard bearer of “la música norteña.” Its achievements have been recognized with two GRAMMY Awards (in 2005 for their album Intimamente and in 2011 for the album Classic), seven Latin GRAMMY and multiple nominations, thirteen Premios Lo Nuestro, numerous Latin Billboards and two Billboard Regional Mexican Awards, as well as many other nominations, including one from the American Music Awards. Not only these but in 2010 Billboard Magazine named them “Group of the Decade” and were honored by Billboard with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

Always striving towards creating music that is relevant and transcends the boundaries of genre, national borders and even languages, INTOCABLE returned to the studio to produce their 15th career album. En Peligro de Extinción brings together all the best of INTOCABLE: the stirring lyrics, the captivating melodies and rhythms, the expert arrangements and the excellence and precision of a group of musicians at the top of their art form.

Although the band produced INTOCABLE 2011 under their own label, Good I Music, this time they decided to join forces with Universal Music Group for En Peligro de Extinción in their aim to expand their reach to the Central American and South American markets, since Universal has the distribution infrastructure required for this goal. In this album, INTOCABLE lends its characteristically rhythmic voice to the words of renowned songwriters Ikerlan, José Zamora, Josué Contreras and Miguel Mendoza, with whom they’ve co-written in past albums. Ikerlan wrote their single “Te Amo Para Siempre” which debuted to a sold out crowd in the Monterrey Arena on November 30th and December 1st of 2012.

“Nos Faltó Hablar,” a power ballad reminiscent of the 1980s rock power ballads, was written by the famous Mexican singer-songwriter, Reyli Barba.

Year after year, INTOCABLE demonstrates their passion for music and their desire to share their creations with a loyal public that keeps growing with every word and every note.


“Creamos música porque creemos en su poder de transcendencia, en términos de géneros, fronteras y hasta idiomas. A nuestra música, y a nuestro público, le damos todo lo que tenemos y todo lo que somos.” –INTOCABLE

Hoy por hoy, INTOCABLE es uno de los grupos más influyentes de la escena de la música Tejana/Norteña. Su trayectoria de éxito se inició dieciocho años atrás (diecinueve en agosto) en Zapata, Texas, cuando los amigos Ricky Muñoz y René Martínez soñaban en llevarle sus canciones al mundo al tiempo que creaban una música única y extraordinaria que une los estilos del conjunto Tejano, los ritmos regionales de la música norteña y las baladas populares.

Tras años de dedicación y pasión, el sueño es una irrefutable realidad. Con éxitos #1 como “Robarte Un Beso” y Prometí,” al igual que otras canciones favoritas del público como “Dame Un Besito,” “Eres Mi Droga”, Enséñame a Olvidarte, “Sueña,” “Contra Viento y Marea,” “Llueve,” “Arrepiéntete,” y muchas más, el grupo INTOCABLE continua entreteniendo y deleitando a audiencias, tanto en los Estados Unidos como en México. Sus canciones son escuchadas en estaciones de radio por todo el continente americano y el grupo ha tenido el privilegio de tocar en vivo en establecimientos de reconocimiento mundial tales como el Auditorio Nacional en la Ciudad de México, y el Estadio Reliant Astrodomo en Houston, con un record histórico de más de 70,000 fanáticos cantado y gozando de uno de los mejores espectáculos en la industria. Como para engalanar una carrera excepcional, INTOCABLE hizo historia al ser el primero y hasta ahora único en su genero en cantar en el medio tiempo del partido de Dallas Cowboys vs Washington Redskins en el afamado Estadio de los Dallas Cowboy.

El grupo INTOCABLE es el portador de la música norteña. Sus logros han sido reconocidos con dos Premios Grammy Americanos (en el 2005 por su álbum Íntimamente y en el 2011 por el álbum Classic), siete Latin GRAMMY y multiples nominaciones, trece Premios Lo Nuestro, multiples Latin Billboards y dos Premios Billboard Regional Mexicano, en adición a varias otras nominaciones, incluyendo una por parte de los Premios American Music. Además de estos honores, en el 2010, el grupo fue nombrado como el “Grupo de la Década” por la Revista Billboard, y fueron honrados por Billboard con el Premio especial “Trayectoria Artistica” en el 2012.

En busca de continuar creando música relevante y que trasciende los límites de género, fronteras nacionales y hasta lenguas, INTOCABLE regresó al estudio para producir el 15vo. álbum de su exitosa carrera. En Peligro de Extinción ofrece todo lo mejor de INTOCABLE: sus letras emotivas, sus melodías y ritmos cautivantes, sus arreglos maestros, además de la excelencia y la precisión de un grupo de músicos al pináculo de su arte.

Aunque el grupo produjo INTOCABLE 2011 bajo su propio sello disquero, Good I Music, esta vez decidieron unirse a Universal Music Group, para En Peligro de Extinción, con el objetivo de expandir su alcance en los mercados de Centro y Suramérica, ya que Universal posee la infraestructura de distribución requerida para sus metas. En este álbum, INTOCABLE le da voz a las palabras de los reconocidos compositores Ikerlan, José Zamora, Josué Contreras y Miguel Mendoza con quienes han co-escrito en albumes pasado. Ikerlan escribió el sencillo “Te Amo Para Siempre,” el cual debutaron ante una audiencia repleta en la Arena de Monterrey, el 30 de noviembre y 1 de diciembre del 2012. “Nos Faltó Hablar,” una poderosa balada, evocativa de las “power ballads” de rock de los años 1980, fue escrita por el famoso compositor y cantante mexicano, Reyli Barba.

Año tras año, INTOCABLE demuestra su pasión por la música y su deseo de compartir sus creaciones con un público leal que continúa creciendo con cada palabra y con cada nota.
