NAPA Know How Challenge & Budweiser 250
Sporting a shiny new partnership with NAPA Auto Parts, the Central Texas Speedway rockets into the 2015 season during its first two races of the year. Last November, the Speedway wrapped up its 2014 schedule by crowning champions in several different classes. After a long winter of pumping protein shakes through their engines to get them stronger, drivers return to the track for the season-opening NAPA Know How Challenge on March 28 and the Budweiser 250 less than a month later. All told, the 2015 schedule will feature nine events spread out over the course of the year.
Central Texas Speedway
A visit to Central Texas Speedway is kind of like hanging out in your own backyard, only here, instead of friends racing for the last hamburger from the grill, professional drivers race for glory around a 3/8-mile track. Still, the 39-acre site boasts homey features, including beach volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, and plenty of food and drinks. During races, fans can cheer from air-conditioned suites or bleacher seats close enough to the side-by-side action to see tires smoking and hear GPS systems giving drivers directions. When the pros aren’t tearing around the asphalt track, go-karts take over, allowing friends to battle each other at speeds of up to 65 miles-per-hour.
