  Every year car enthusiasts gather at the track and watch these drivers show out, and it's always a blast. TX2K21 starts Wednesday, March 17, and will go through Sunday, the 21st. The races are broken down into drag racing and roll racing. Drag racing is your typical race, two cars against each other starting from a dead stop. On the other hand, Roll races are a bit different; races start at a 'roll,' typically at TX2K, that sweet spot is around 65mph.

But going to TX2K isn't just about watching other people race; there is an entirely different side to 2K for those who aren't running their car on the track. Starting from the time you wake up till the time you go to sleep, 2K has your agenda booked. The morning car enthusiasts meet up beforehand and head out to the track together in giants groups of cars. Just driving along the highway with an army of people in similar vehicles with similar passions is a feeling you just can't replace. Once at 2K, you can walk around and get some pretty sick footage of the event. Of course, there are a good amount of vendors where you can buy some sick gear and get some goodies to-go. Many locals in the crossroads are getting ready, making sure every detail of their car is checked. Whether they are racing or meeting up and showing off their ride, this event attracts locals and people nationally.
