Below is some information sent to MOTOR Austin about a group discount to the Vintage National Championship and a classic car show:

Here at Circuit of The Americas, we are hosting the Vintage National Championship on October 25-27, and wanted to bring the event to your attention. I would love to have as many of your members out to the event as possible, and would like to offer discounted group tickets for the event.

The price for the event is either $20 for single day tickets, or $50 for tickets to all three days, and (KEY) ALL TICKETS ARE TO BE ORDERED WITH ME OVER THE PHONE to take advantage of the discount. I can be reached at 512-536-1466.


There will be a classic car show at the track that includes a parade lap during the Vintage National Championship event, and a possibility for the winning car to be shown at the Fan Fest Event ahead of the Formula 1 USGP.

Please view the attached flyer for entering the car show. $100 gets you two tickets, entry in the car show, and a lap around the track.

I got a message from Pat D. today about the Hot Rod Power Tour. He's looking for anyone else that might be interested in hooking up. Interested? Read the message below!

We went on the Hot Rod Power Tour last year, and will be going again this year.  There were 1500-5000 cars at each event nite, along the route.  We will leave Austin May 31st for Detroit which is the starting point this year (June 2nd).  The tour ends in Dallas.  We have a committed group of three cars so far for a caravan.  Anybody interested, can contact me at my email address.  Below is a link to the Hot Rod Power Tour 2012 schedule.

Thunderhill Raceway first Test and Tune

Thunderhill News from Mickey Paul McKim...

Thunderhill Raceway is having their first Test & Tune on Feb. 4th 2012. I spoke with owner about having a swap meet and she gave me the OK ! Swap Meet will take place in the spectator parking area. 7:30 til dark. There will be access to the spectator area restrooms. There will be trash cans so we can keep our area clean. Rain or Shine. I have started spreading the word on other websites and to anyone I talk to. Feel free to share this information with friends and other websites. "Admission is Free to everyone Including Vendors". This is an automotive related swap meet. I had to throw that out there because I have got e-mails from people thinking this was a flee market type event. If you plan to attend you may plan on bringing food & drink. I am still checking to see if the track will have concessions. I play with old cars but I race also. This will be a good opportunity for my fellow racers and hot rodders to buy , sell & swap stuff. If anyone has any questions they can contact me. Thanks Mickey

Thunderhill Raceway is located on 24801 IH35 Kyle TX 78640
