For 18-years, twice a year, The Texas Mile has transformed an airport runway in the Coastal Bend area of Texas into a world-renowned motorsports festival and proving grounds for manufacturers, after-market suppliers, and vehicle tuners. The Texas Mile hosts amateur and professional car and motorcycle enthusiasts from around the globe for an ultimate Top Speed Racing experience. It is a man-and-machine challenge. Participants race against the mile-per-hour clock with “No Speed Limit” to capture their top speed at the 1-mile marker.
“This is a community centric event everyone enjoys,” says Shannon Matus, who started the event in 2003 with Jay Matus in nearby communities of Goliad, then to Beeville, then to Victoria and now back home to Beeville, TX. “Our event caters to enhancing the experience of all engaged in the event whether you are physically present or online. It has a very “personal feel” to it while at the same time is considered a “big-time” racing event.”
The Texas Mile originally began with 35 participants and now features more than 220 competitors. It has become a tradition and destination event for many people, families, businesses and civic organizations in the United States, Canada and Mexico as well as gained a significant following internationally.
