Heading into 2021 Texas Motorplex, the only quarter mile multi-use racing facility in North Texas and home of the NHRA FallNationals, will once again host over three dozen specialty events drawing fans from across the country. The 2021 schedule is the most diverse the facility has prepared with almost every national drag racing series represented plus a variety of non-sport festivals. In 2020 Texas Motorplex was the first outdoor sporting facility to host events with fans thanks to the support and direction of Governor Greg Abbott’s office and Ellis County health officials. By instituting reasonable safety precautions Texas Motorplex hosted one of the largest motorsports events in the state, the NHRA Texas FallNationals in October, without issue and the facility will continue to follow prescribed health and safety guidelines moving into 2021.
“We were able to work with the Governor’s office as well as our Ellis County officials and host a wide variety of outdoor events safely over the last half of 2020,” Andy Carter, Texas Motorplex general manager said. “We are looking forward to continuing to provide exciting and affordable racing and entertainment events in 2021. Texas Motorplex has continued to build on its reputation as one of the most professional and prestigious race tracks in Texas. We are adding more national series events as well as festivals to continue to highlight our state of the art facility.”
