Day two of TX2K14 returned to Texas World Speedway to crown the first champions of the TX2K Roll Race Nationals. Today, TWS lived up to its nickname, "The Worlds Fastest Speedway." A few decades ago, when the speedway was a bustling hub for sanctioned motorsport, it was dubbed the fastest speedway when Mario Andretti set a record speed of 214.158 mph, while qualifying for an Indy race. The top speed achieved today by contrast, was set by a road-fairing, fire spewing Bull, clocking in at an impressive 201 mph. Needless to say, it's fitting today's record was set by the eventual Unlimited Class winner.
When you think about Texas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? If it's high horsepower, you've come to the right place and we've done something right. It's only fitting that Texas throws an event of this caliber considering it also hosts two of the oldest and most well-known high-speed races, the Texas Mile and the Texas Invitational (TI). And, it’s home to what was once considered the fastest non-restrictor plate tracks on the NASCAR circuit with entry speeds in excess of 102 mph, and corner entry speeds over 200 mph. This makes it a perfect venue for TX2K. For the past 15 years, TX2K has kicked off the automotive season in March and has easily become one of Revvolution's favorite events of the year. Who needs a beach with a bunch of drunk college kids? It might just be us, but a mass gathering of some of the baddest cars in the nation sounds far more appealing.

TX2K started as a Toyota Supra Nationals event 13 years ago, and now it’s become a world-class event, garnering international attention with its all-inclusive approach that focuses on all facets of automotive performance; agility; power; and speed. By dedicating the first day to the track, the second to dyno pulls, and the third and fourth to the dragstrip, TX2K built a reputation as one of the year’s must-attend events for participants and spectators alike.
