Texas World Speedway was one of the premier road racing venues in the Southwest, hosting Races, Testing, Driving Schools, Corporate Events and Film Shoots. It opperated under its last few years under rumor and speculation that it was closing. Sadly, 2017 was truly it's final year of operation.
Our handsome display shows TWS's most popular road course configuration as either a 10"x10" trophy display available powder coated or brushed steel or as 16" to 48" wall art in another listing.
TWS was one of only seven Super Speedways in the USA and was the only Super Speedway in the Southwest. TWS's oval became known as "The World's Fastest Speedway" when Mario Andretti set a world closed course speed record of 214.158 mph on October 6, 1973 while qualifying for an Indy car race.
TWS was located on approximately 400 acres with direct access to Highway 6 south of College Station, Texas. In addition to the two mile "D" shaped oval with 22 degree banking turns and 8 degree banking in the front of the grandstands, TWS is a road racers favorite with 1.8, 1.9 and 2.9 mile high speed road courses.
