The Big Bend Open Road Race just started accepting applications for the 2012 race in April. There's a limit of 160 entries, so if you have always wanted to run flat out on a public highway, you'd better get going.

This year, we're trying to average 130MPH for 118 miles. (54 min., 27.692 sec.)

Here's a Vette embarrassing a Mustang during the 2011 event:

Holy shiznit! Wouldn't be pretty if any critters hoped in front of you going that speed!
Tell me about it! A couple of years ago, we clipped a bunny rabbit @ around 140:




Look close and you'll see rabbit particles on the REAR of the car:



Rabbits, buzzards, deer, javelina and skunks are considered obstacles. We sometimes refer to the race as the West Texas Wildlife Eradication Program.

Rabbit particles lol
Event T-shirt idea for you:

If you don't have rabbit particles on your rear fascia, you didn't drive fast enough :yeadog:
