Gentlemen (and ladies), start your engines and get ready to put the pedal to the metal, because the Texas Mile returns to Victoria Regional Airport this weekend!

As the most recognized 1-Mile Top Speed Racing event in the world, the much anticipated Texas Mile returns to the Victoria, Texas Regional Airport October 27-29, 2017. For the past 15 years, the bi-annual event was held every March and October in Goliad and later, Beeville. The Spring 2017 maiden run in Victoria proved to be a complete success. The Texas Mile welcomes the fastest performance cars and motorcycles from across the United States to test their limits in a 1-mile stretch.

When the event held its initial run in March, conditions were so good that that drivers were able to set multiple speed records. M2K Motorsports will be back with their 2006 Ford GT driven by Patrick O’Gorman, which set the standing mile world record at 293.6 MPH. AirTech of Houston will also be returning with their 2011 GT500 Ford Mustang which holds the Ford Mustang 1-Mile World Record at 260.8 MPH, which was also achieved at the last Texas Mile in Victoria.

For participants and spectators, convenient amenities will be offered onsite such as local food trucks, merchandise, and two large shaded spectator viewing areas. Bus transportation will be available to shuttle spectators between different event areas throughout each day.

Event Date: October 27-29, 2017
