For those who are unaware, The Texas Mile is the twice-yearly one-mile speed test out at a tiny airport in Goliad, Texas. It attracts everything from stripped motorcycles to diesel-powered Mustangs and insane Ford GTs. Speeds can hit the 260 MPH zone. Unlike other high-speed tests, there's no classing and they're open to frequent passes so you'll see 1,000 cars run in a day.
