Texas World Speedway close to College Station. $5 dollar admission allows you access to the paddock where all the vintage race cars are parked and will be able to take photos while they are racing on the track. If any interested I can give more details of the event
Our host, David O'Dell has arranged for us to visit the Texas Motor Speedway to shoot some vintage race cars in action.
"I have been associated with racing since I was born and raced for 22 year and I’m currently a race steward. My big passion now is photography and I think for the photographers who have a passion for race car and especially historical race cars would enjoy this outing."
You will be able to walk the paddock and see the cars up close and should be able to get some good photos and also should be possible to take photos of the cars on track. There will be a brief safety meeting before we enter the race track to give explain the does and don’ts while at the track. The race is not run on the oval there is a road course in the interior of the track depending on the road course configuration they use it could be the 1.8 mile track or the 2.8 mile track.
There is a $5 fee to enter, but this isn't going to be a crowded event. Usually just the drivers and crew are here, so that should ensure that you are able to get some great shots.
The race track is on highway 6 about 8 miles before College Station, address is 17529 State Highway 6 S, College Station, TX 77845.
Bring ear protection.
If anyone would like to share rides, please comment and we will make that happen. This is an all weekend long event, so come early and stay as long as you like.
Big shout out to David for inviting us to this event,
