Do you have a fast car? Want to know how fast it'll go? You don't get much opportunity to really push it to its limits on public streets and highways legally, that is, and that's why there's the Texas mile.
This event happens twice a year at Chase Field in Beeville, and registration for the next event is underway.
How fast can you go in a one mile stretch? Drivers come from all over the U.S., Canada and Mexico to put the pedal to the metal, and in fact race teams build special cars just for the event, that reach speeds well over 200 mph. Don't worry if you're only driving your Mom's Pinto, the event is open to a number of different classes.
The next event takes place April first through third. For registration information, click here.
