Speed Trap

Timing Process

Recognition and Bragging Rights:

In addition to the shear thrill of going as fast as you want without the fear of a speeding ticket or a trip to jail, each participant receives:

  • An official Texas Mile Event Top Speed Certificate
  • A Texas Mile Hard Card License

Each Driver/Rider that reaches 200+ can purchase a coveted 200 MPH Club Shirt

Official Speed:

For all, MPH is calculated by a state of the art speed trap located at the last 132 feet of The Texas Mile. Timing equipment includes timing lights and lasers hooked to a computer designed for calculating top speed runs.

Display Boards and Announcements:

There are display boards that show the unofficial speed of each pass. The official speeds are announced over our local FM broadcast system. *Pending the setup of fm radio

Speed Slips:

A speed slip is printed after every pass down the mile that shows the captured speed of each pass. Each participant should obtain their speed slip on the return road from a Timing and Scoring representative. Please keep your speed slips. DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY. You need them for the following reasons:

  1. To obtain your speed certificate
  2. To prove your 200MPH run in order to purchase your T-Shirt at the event
  3. These speed slips can be used as proof of speed in case there is a discrepancy in the raw results after the event

Speed Certificates:

In order to obtain your speed certificate, go to registration with your fastest speed slip of the event. Each participant is allowed one certificate (two certificates if you need one for your sponsor). Do not pick up your speed certificate unless you have completed all of your runs for the event.

Recording of Speed for all Drivers/Riders:

Each pass down the mile is recorded in multiple ways. As the pass is completed, the speed is called out to our logger and written down. Then timing and scoring will print out an official speed slip. The speed written down is compared to the printed speed slip and then logged into a computer data base. This data base is used as our raw results. Our raw results are an official record.
