DFW: spring road rally!

Spaghetti Western Rally

Spring is road rally time, and we are ready to go with our first offering of the year.

A country drive from Grapevine to Nocona should get those juices flowing. There should be a few bluebonnets, but it will be a fun getaway from city traffic even if the flowers aren't there. You might ask what a city named after an Indian chief and famous for cowboy boots has to do with pasta? Well, if you sign up you will find out.

The boots are gone, but now there is the Horton Classic Car Museum for you car buffs. See Horton Classic Car Museum - Home for a preview. And we couldn’t find a restaurant big enough for all of us in Nocona, so we will give you about an hour and a half to do lunch on your own (a restaurant list will be provided) and visit the car museum if you like. Then we will all gather at the Tales 'n' Trails Museum (western memorabilia) at a given time for the awards ceremony.

The event is Saturday, April 25. To register, go to msreg.com/SWR15msr .

Classic Chevrolet (the start location in Grapevine) will pay the entry fee for the first five Chevrolets to enter online.

The Horton Museum is at 101-199 W Walnut, and the Tales ‘n’ Trails Museum is at 1522 US-82, both in Nocona.

Our 2015 rally schedule looks like this:

25 APR Spaghetti Western Rally
30 MAY DFW Map Rally
11 JUL Clear Blue Sky Rally
15 AUG tba
19 SEP Tour To The Tombstones
24 OCT Great Pumpkin Rally
05 DEC Children's Book Run

Any street-legal car with two or more people old enough to read can enter. No special car prep is necessary. Just bring a clip board and a pencil, and you are ready to go. There is a First Timer's class, in case you have never done this before. You will drive about 90 miles to Nocona following a certain route, finding various signs and landmarks along the way. The cars that follow the rules and find the most answers will take home trophies.

Any three+ cars can form a team, and the winning team will be announced at the awards ceremony. Why not "Team Ford"?

Join us and be a part of the biggest SCCA rally program in the nation!

1) We often get Houston area folks at our rallies up here. Come on up!

2) I am developing a list of Houston people who are interested in rally. When I get a few more, I will see if I can't get Houston Region SCCA to start a rally program. Shall I put you on my list? If so, PM me with your name/email.

I actually would consider coming up as I lived in DFW for 23 years but I have to save my vacation days and money for a trip to Ireland in May. I'll pm you my info though in case you get anything going in the Houston area.

Here are the entries for our rally to Nocona so far: BMW, WRX, Chrysler (from San Antonio!), Wrangler, and Chevrolet Belair (2). My guess is about 20 entries, which should make it easy to get a trophy. Go to msreg.com/SWR15msr to enter.
