NASA Texas Adds Texas Motor Speedway Roval to 2019 Schedule

Austin, Texas December 21, 2018 — We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a 3-day event on the 2.32 mile 12-turn roval at Texas Motor Speedway on August 16-18, 2019. Utilizing the superspeedway banking as well and the road course infield will make for exciting driving, time Trial, and racing on what promises to be the fastest track in the region. “We’ve wanted to bring our program to Texas Motor Speedway for the last several years. Iconic facility, hi-speeds, and over 100 car spaces in covered NASCAR garages to help keep our participants social and out of the elements between sessions. All this will make this the perfect addition to this year’s comprehensive 2019 schedule for the region” says NASA Texas Regional Director, Will Faules.

“We look forward to Texas Motor Speedway becoming part of the 2019 schedule for NASA Texas,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “With the combination of our infield road course and a portion of our oval being utilized, we will be able to provide the competitors with a roval-style layout that should be among the fastest on the schedule.”

Registration is now open for our first two events of the season at www.drivenasa.com and the rest will open after the new year.
