Royal Purple Raceway

Plan to head out to RPR in Baytown, TX 8-29-14 to see what I can do. It'll be my first time so it should be exciting. Anyone in the local area should come on out. I'll be cruisin from Houston. $20 car and driver all night. $10 spectator.

Good luck. Make your first run count, you will be lucky if you can get more than 2 runs in,

Yes it can be,
If you are on street tires Drive around the water box,

Other than that it's just going to be learning for you, you do not have to take off as soon as the green light comes up. Your time will not be affected.

Have fun

I remember going there in the late 80's to see Darrel Gwynn, John Force, Bob Glidden, Kenny Bernstein race when the track was brand new. I even met Kenny Bernstein at a night club in Clear Lake called Premiers. It was a Thursday night before that weekends racing. Back then I thought running the 1/4 in the low 5's and going 285mph was fast.
