RAPTORX IS COMING. JUST HOW MUCH TALENT DO YOU HAVE?
It’s well known that the annual Texas Raptor Runs are a chance for 150+ Raptor owners to hone their off-road skills over a professional racecourse. But how good are you, really? Or more importantly, how good can you get?
Looking to take TRR to the next level, founder Trey Palreiro decided it was time to introduce a timed event into the TRR lineup. It’s called RaptorX. Yes, this is where the bragging ends.
One truck at a time, on a small well-marked course is by no means a new idea; Autocross and Rallycross have been doing similar events for modified cars and rally cars for quite some time. Said Trey “The demand for a safe environment to compete using Ford Raptors is huge, The Texana Ranch, near Blackwell Texas, is the perfect setting for the event, with a variety of terrain to test even the most seasoned driver and modified truck”.
This will be a small gathering compared to most TRR events. To make sure everyone gets as many runs as possible (and has as much fun as possible), only 40 trucks will be allowed to participate. Spectating is allowed and encouraged. The ranch will be open to tent campers, and RV hook-ups will be available. The popular “Back Half” of the large Texana desert track will be open to participants as well. The event kicks off Friday afternoon January 2nd with registration, and practice runs on the RaptorX track. RaptorX will take place on Saturday and Sunday, with an awards ceremony early Sunday afternoon. RaptorX is expected to sell out quickly so sign up now.
This is going to be amazing. Let’s see who’s King of the Raptors.
