The annual event features a Friday night event, the Saturday car show and an opportunity for laps around the track on Sunday. This year, our fun on the track was rained out, but the rest of the weekend was fantastic as usual.
The trip from San Antonio was coordinated by Gary and Gay Burgess and Lake and Kathi Ellis. They departed from the Stripes on 281 in Spring Branch and followed Hwy 281 to Fort Worth. A small group lead by Jon Miller also traveled up on I-35 and joined a few cars from another club on Thursday, all to converge on the Marriott that afternoon in time to have dinner at Babe's Chicken Dinner House in Roanoke the first evening.
Friday, many went to the Horton Classic Car Museum in Nacona, while a few of the die hards headed north to the Winstar casinos to try their luck at the slots and tables. Some winners and some losers returned to the hotel later that evening for our trip to the Stockyards for our BBQ dinner.
