Texas Motorplex to Allows Fans This Weekend After Governor Issues Executive Order

Texas Governor, Greg Abbott issued an executive order this afternoon that expanded the enumerated list of Covered Services in Executive Order GA-23. The order will parallel certain venues being activated by allowing outdoor motorsports events to operate at up to 25 percent of the normal operating limits as determined by the venue owner and operate under guidelines that facilitate appropriate social distancing. Pursuant to that order the Texas Motorplex will allow fans to attend the Keurig Dr Pepper Lone Star Nationals presented by Driven Automotive Protection starting tomorrow. Fans will be charged $15 per car and can order tickets online now.

The event, previously a live participant only race, will still be broadcast on PPV. This comes as great news for fans hungry for the roar of racing. Prices to catch all the racing action will be at the low price of $15 by purchasing the event Pay Per View livestream on TheFoat.com Ticketing with BangShift. The entire event from the first burnout to the last win light will be broadcast with wildly entertaining Al Tucci calling the action.

“We have been in regular communication with Governor Abbott’s office and we want to thank Governor Abbott for his leadership in allowing us to be the first motorsports venue with the chance to host fans. We will be following all the recommendations from the Governor’s office,” said Andy Carter, Texas Motorplex General Manager. “We want to assure everyone that we are taking all necessary safety precautions to keep our employees, competitors and fans safe during this event. We know racers have been staying at home for over two months and we just want to give them one of the first opportunities to get back on the track.”

On Saturday competitors in Top Alcohol Funny Car and Top Alcohol Dragster will battle it out for a winner’s purse of $3,500 in prize money. Additionally, Mid-West Pro Mod drivers will be tearing up the track throughout the weekend. In addition to the record cash purse, drivers will earn valuable Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series points.
