Since its asphalt cooled in 1968, Texas World Speedway has hosted races big and small, gaining renown as “the world’s fastest speedway” in 1973 when Mario Andretti set his closed-course speed record there. The racing mecca continues to expand its repertoire with a performance driving school, which couples classroom learning with on-road experience, as well as through a work-drive program that lets young racers exchange a day of toil for everyday practice on the track. Frequent visitors can reap the rewards of the speedway‘s membership program, which grants holders access to benefits such as gear, discounts, exclusive events, and secret handshakes that produce motor oil.
The car crusaders at Barker Cypress Car Wash carefully scrub dirty roadsters, preparing them to grace highways with a clean presence and cleaner skid marks. During the Bronze wash, exteriors are marinated in a sudsy triple-foam wax, conditioner, and rust protector, and an underbody wash rids the buggy's belly of roadside residue and little white lies. The washers then towel dry the car’s chassis, and the interior is vacuumed and upgraded with an air freshener, which blocks unpleasant odors emanating from the auto’s musk tank and other naturally odiferous areas. After the pampering, your car will emerge glowing, refreshed, and ready to race down whichever proverbial road looks the most promising.
With a gigantic blue bucket jutting from its roof, The Appleseed Express Carwash is nearly impossible to miss. Beneath this eye-grabbing centerpiece, automatic washing tunnels call upon energy-reducing frequency drives, recycled water, and environmentally friendly products and polishes to restore sullied exteriors to a like-new shine. In addition to their environmental promises, the washing crew also commits to its community by donating to the Kids in Need program and occasionally hosing down mailboxes.
SmartShine Carwash's automatic polisher uses lasers to measure the shape of each car before it carefully applies wax to exterior surfaces. Each car then emerges with a shine so precise that it appears to have been applied by hand. Feel free to wait at an outdoor table as your car to goes through the wash tunnel congratulate it with balloons and cake when it emerges clean and ready for the road.
