From an email I put together for a friend coming to Texas, I thought it would help fellow folks with an itch to get their car on the track where it belongs! :D

Some of the clubs in Texas to drive with, on their websites you will often find the information about the local tracks. They just do HPDEs at this time (fun track days, no time trials) --

The Drivers Edge

Another is Apex Driving Academy

NASA: #DRIVENASA - Texas Region | We Drive Harder! - Welcome to Texas Region for the National Auto Sport Association. Here you can find all the information necessary to get on track at our events. (HPDE/TimeTrial/Races)

For two auto-x clubs check out: Equipe Rapide SCC - Autocross club - Texas - News

There is also a lot of PCA and BMWCA and of course SCCA stuff in our area...
PCA: Maverick Region
The Sports Car Club of America - About

Here are the tracks, many have their own "drivers days" also, check out their websites or call them for opportunities to drive their tracks:

Motorsport Ranch
Eagles Canyon Raceway
Texas World Speedway
Harris Hill Raceway - Motorsports Clubs, Driving School, HPDE, and Corporate Events
MSR Houston
Circuit of The Americas
Soon to be built Bluebonnet:
Just outside of Texas:
Hallett Motor Racing Circuit
NOLA Motorsports Park | New Orleans, LA Race Track, Karting & Events Center

That will get you started, hope that helps!! Welcome to Texas!

There have been some updates since I created that original email above...

Eagle's Canyon (ECR) - Decatur, Texas -
They finally totally re-poured the entire track and the full track (now 2.7mi vs the original 2.5mi) reopened. I was there first on 11/24/19 for four 15min HPDE sessions - a lot to learn with this new config. Do not assume the section that is still like the old config is 100% unchanged!

Wow, I love the track. Way better then when I drove it last in 2012 when it was already falling apart. Back then they tried to fix it but concrete was coming up so bad in chunks that it would have totaled my car. Now the track is glass smooth and beautiful again and I like the new config much better than the original one. Everyone needs to get out there and get some rubber down on the track to increase its grip! This track deserves a re-visit if you have not been there after the Nov 2019 reopening. Keep safe out there!

Harris Hill Road (H2R) - San Marcos, Texas -
Has now also been TOTALLY resurfaced! I have yet to revisit but I thought it was a fun track but the back straight was horribly bumpy. Not anymore! I look forward to going back.

Also sad to say that TWS has closed and Bluebonnet will not be built.
