Texas World Speedway was originally designed as an oval super-speedway for NASCAR,
and it saw some exciting 200+mph side-by-side stock car duels back in the day! Opened
in the 60's, it faded from the NASCAR calendar in the 80's. However, the road course
lap at TWS came into it's own reputation as fast and fun with a whole range of sports
car racing, including the IMSA Can-Am and GTP championships in the 80's. While professional
racing hasn't been seen at TWS in years, it still attracts Texas sports car enthusiasts
every weekend. Recently, TWS has been threatened with closure as a result of new
development on the site. However, each year, somehow, TWS manages to get "just one
more year!" of track activity. Is this the last year? The 15 turn lap is 2.9 miles
long, and is FAST! Very few slow corners. The track has lots of character and shows
age, but, it remains fast and fun! Just east of College Station, TX.
UPDATE: Well, it's over. On August 19th, 2017 Chin Track Days ran the final public event at TWS. The track closed on August 21st.
