Bonneville, El Mirage, Muroc. Any speed freak worth his salt knows these names and holds them with a nearly sacred reverence. But Goliad? Where the hell is Goliad? South Tejas, baby
home of the Texas Mile. While not as celebrated as the car culture of Southern California or Detroit, Texas has birthed quite a bit of automotive greatness
from the soon-to-be-legendary Lone Star Rod & Kustom Round-Up in Austin each spring, to racing icons like Johnny Rutherford, A.J. Foyt and Jim Hall, creator of the notorious Chaparral Can-Am cars. It was really only a matter of time until Texas had its own venue for land speed racing. The next event's in October, so bust out your copy of Deg
ello and get on down there.
