The new Texas Mile location will be NAS Chase Field in Beeville. TX.
A 3rd 2011 event of the year has been added: May 27-29.
Updated as it happens…live from The Mile.
The 1800rwhp twin turbo LMR 4th gen Camaro spun the tires off the wheels at the 3/4 mile mark – the driver managed to save the car, keep it on the track and deploy the parachute… It skidded across the 1 mile mark at 215mph.
Hinson Supercars Turbo c6 off the track. Car destroyed. Driver OK. It ran 224mph Friday.
We were there to see this happen – still truly amazing the driver walked away. Strange things happen at 235mph.
