BEEVILLE -- More than 220 speed enthusiasts are set to speed down the runways of the Chase Field Industrial Complex Friday through Sunday, Oct. 25-27, as the Texas Mile revs up for its 10th anniversary.

What started as a grassroots motorsports event a decade ago is now one of the nation’s premier speed events. The Texas Mile, now in its third season at Chase Field after being at a Goliad facility the previous seven years, is held twice a year, during March and October.

The Texas Mile is open to drivers of sports cars, motorcycles, trucks, and concept racecars. It features professional racers, novices, and amateurs alike, who all have a need for speed. The competitors and spectators come from more than 25 different states and all areas of Texas to enjoy this festival of motor sports. The cities of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, Rockport, Victoria, and Beeville are represented by record holders in various classes, loyal fans, and supportive sponsors. An international presence is also represented with some participants and media coming from the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Dubai, Chile, Mexico, and Canada.

The concept is simple. Drivers line up and go as fast as they can to obtain their top speed in 1 mile.

Motorcycle fans can see some of the fastest people on two wheels. Five-time motorcycle land speed record holder Valerie Thompson returns to the Texas Mile on her BMW SS 1000 R, and everyone can expect speeds of around 250 mph from Hussain Alsowaigh on his Suzuki Hayabusa.

The Texas Mile will be held at the Chase Field Industrial Complex, located at 2745 Byrd St. in Beeville. The gates will be open from 8 a.m. until dusk on Friday and Saturday, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $20 for a 3-day spectator pass, and children under 12 are free. Spectators may take their own chairs, umbrellas, and coolers, though viewing areas and concessions will be available.

For more information, contact Jessica Reyna at 281-303-1844.
