ENNIS, Texas – Heading into 2022, Texas Motorplex, the only quarter mile multi-use racing facility in North Texas and home of the Stampede of Speed and NHRA Texas Fall Nationals, will once again host many special events.
The addition of the Stampede of Speed in 2021, the largest continuous auto racing event following the Indy 500, will anchor a busy season of racing action in 2022. In addition to racing events the track will host music festivals and specialty events throughout the year with the 2022 schedule encompassing events to treat guests to wide variety of entertainment options.
“This season will be a huge step forward for entertainment opportunities in the State of Texas thanks to the success of the Stampede of Speed,” said Christie Meyer Johnson, Texas Motorplex co-owner. “We took a big risk last year and produced a ten-day event in advance of our largest race of the season, the NHRA Texas Fall Nationals, and it really paid off. The event weas very well received and drew national attention. This season will once again get started with the second annual Funny Car Chaos event and we will have an impressive roster of drag racing events.”
