The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series packs up from Martinsville and heads to the Lone Star State for the Texas Motor Speedway and the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500. Kyle Busch is last years winner of the spring race. Texas Motor Speedway is located in the northernmost portion of Fort Worth, Texas – the portion located in Denton County, Texas. The reconfigured track measures 1.44 miles (2.32 km) with banked 20° in turns 1 and 2 and banked 24° in turns 3 and 4. Texas Motor Speedway is a quad-oval design, where the front straightaway juts outward slightly. The track layout is similar to Atlanta Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway. The track is owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc., the same company that owns Atlanta and Charlotte Motor Speedways, as well as the short-track Bristol Motor Speedway.
One of the coolest things about Texas is how they do Victory Lane.
Gotta love the flames around the race winner's name and of course you get to fire the six shooters!
(Hey it's the Biff, or as I called him Biffaroni! Thought I'd show ole Biffle sum love in victory lane).
So dust off your boots, don your cowboy/cowgirl hat and let's do the Texas Two Step!
