ENNIS, Texas (April 16, 2014) – Texas Motorplex has added three feature events to the 2014 schedule to give street racers even more time on the world famous drag racing facility.

The Lone Star Bash: Domestic Shootout, Saturday, May 10, is going to be a party meant for domestic street racers, but will happily allow any make and model on the track. The gates open for the event presented by DFW General Motors Enthusiasts at noon – well in advance of the Ultimate Street Night event slated for that evening.

Anyone who has been to Texas in August knows one thing for certain: It’s hot in August. With two new events, however, the Motorplex will be the coolest hot spot in North Texas.

Will Clark will be celebrating a big birthday the best way he knows how: inviting the public for a car show and drag race. On Aug. 23, gates open at 5 p.m. and racing and the party ends at Midnight – at the Motorplex anyway!

The Throwdown event is just going to be a preview for the truck community for what comes next. On D Gas Productions presents the DFW Truck Shootout the following weekend, on Aug. 30. The all-truck celebration will feature truck racing, truck shows and much more.

Check out the revised schedule on www.texasmotorplex.com and make plans to be at the first super-stadium of racing and the fastest track in Texas throughout the spring and hot summer months before the facility plays host to a number of national events in the fall.

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.

Texas Motorplex Memorial Day Bracket Bash

Texas Motorplex Memorial Day Bracket Bash

May 24-25, 2014 – TWO POINTS RACES and DOUBLE PAY

ENNIS, Texas (April 11, 2014) – Texas Motorplex is pleased to announce a change in the 2014 Bracket Racing schedule. There will no longer be a bracket points race during the May 17-18 Super Chevy Show.

INSTEAD, officials have announced a two-day Memorial Day Bracket Bash. There will be a points race on Saturday, May 24 for double the payout AND there will be a second points race with double the payout on Sunday, May 25.

The scheduled change ensures all bracket racers will have 12 events on the season points schedule with big money to give racers even more reasons to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Texas Motorplex Competition Director and facility management has worked with several racers to get the schedule adjusted to ensure a full slate of bracket racing events.

“Super Chevy Show will be a race for just GM and Chevy vehicles, but the Memorial Day Bracket Bash will be two full days of points racing, double money and we are going to add a specialty race for even more cash,” Texas Motorplex Competition Director Clint Wallace said. “I think this is going to be a great way to bring back a quality bracket event on the holiday weekend. We get to give out extra money and points and celebrate the start of summer.”

Track officials will announce further details regarding the Specialty race as the event nears, including raffle prizes. All racers who accepted a rain check for the March 29 event can bring their March 29 ticket and exchange it for Super Chevy Show or any bracket race in 2014.

The Super Chevy Show event has been revised (see below Memorial Day Bracket Bash information) and will continue to feature electronics, no electronics, heads up classes, a special event for the 5th Gen Camaro and much more – all for GM and Chevy brands only.

CLINT WALLACE IS NEW COMPETITION DIRECTOR FOR TEXAS MOTORPLEX

CLINT WALLACE IS NEW COMPETITION DIRECTOR FOR TEXAS MOTORPLEX
Native Texan Has a Lifetime of Racing Experience to Bolster New Position

ENNIS, Texas (April 10, 2014) – Clint Wallace has been hired as the new Competition Director for Texas Motorplex, track officials announced today.

Wallace will bring more than 35 years of racing experience to the highly coveted position.

“When we interviewed Clint we knew immediately he was the right person to come in and be the voice of the racers who could continue to elevate all of the racing programs we have at the Motorplex,” Texas Motorplex General Manager Gabrielle Stevenson said. “We have a vast amount of events and I know he will treat each one with care and always maintain the best racing surface possible for the competitors. He’s already become a valued team member.”

Wallace started racing with his family before he was 2 years old and he hasn’t looked back since.

“My family has been involved with racing right after I was born and I just remember growing up around the drag strip,” Wallace said. “He raced at Green Valley and Texas Raceway along with Texas Motorplex. It’s just part of our family.

“It would be difficult to say what I love most about racing because I love everything about it – the speed, the smell, the feeling of racing, all of it. And I love the families and other competitors we’ve met over the years. Racing is just one big extended family.”

Wallace was at the first NHRA national event hosted by Texas Motorplex in 1986 and has seen every one since then. The Grand Prairie resident said the Motorplex has always held a special place in his heart even though he has worked at other facilities including Texas Raceway and North Star Dragway.

“The Motorplex is the first all concrete quarter-mile facility and it was the first of the super tracks,” Wallace said. “There is so much history here such as holding the first 4-second run.A lot of great things have happened here and I want to make sure the Motorplex continues to be the best place to race. I’m proud to take on this great role and continue the tradition here.

“It’s been a dream of mine to be the Competition Director at Texas Motorplex and I will do everything I can to ensure the Motorplex is the first choice for competitors to race.”
