RECOGNITION & BRAGGING RIGHTS:
In addition to the shear thrill of going as fast as you want without the fear of a speeding ticket or a trip to jail, each participant receives:
- An official Texas Mile Event Top Speed Certificate
- A Texas Mile Hard Card License
Each Driver/Rider that reaches 200+ can purchase a coveted 200 MPH Club Shirt.
For all, MPH is calculated by a state of the art speed trap located at the last 132 feet of The Texas Mile. Timing equipment includes timing lights and lasers hooked to a computer designed for calculating top speed runs.
DISPLAY BOARDS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:
There are three display boards that show the unofficial speed of each pass.
The official speeds are announced over our local FM broadcast system.
A speed slip is printed after every pass down the mile that shows the captured speed of each pass. Each participant should obtain their speed slip on the return road from a Timing and Scoring representative. Please keep your speed slips. DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY. You need them for the following reasons:
- To obtain your speed certificate
- To prove your 200MPH run in order to purchase your T-Shirt at the event
These speed slips can be used as proof of speed in case there is a discrepancy in the raw results after the event.
In order to obtain your speed certificate, go to registration with your fastest speed slip of the event. Each participant is allowed one certificate (two certificates if you need one for your sponsor). Do not pick up your speed certificate unless you have completed all of your runs for the event.
RECORDING OF SPEED FOR ALL RIDERS/DRIVERS:
Each pass down the mile is recorded in multiple ways. As the pass is completed, the speed is called out to our logger and written down. Then timing and scoring will print out an official speed slip. The speed written down is compared to the printed speed slip and then logged into a computer data base. This data base is used as our raw results. Our raw results are an official record of:
- Competition placement
- Getting an official record
For those that set records in their class, your information will be recorded in THE U.S. MILE RECORD database which will be for public bragging rights on our Web site. We will also post all the results. SO EVERYBODY gets to see their name in digital print. AND we will try to get magazines and other publications to recognize your accomplishments as well – No guarantees on magazine exposure, but our track record is pretty good.

NO REFUND POLICY:
The Texas Mile and U.S. Mile (The Colorado Mile) registration fee and other purchases made during registration (such as T-shirts) is non-refundable and non-transferable for any reason. Due to the many investments that go into planning The Mile and any future 1/2 Mile events, there will be no refunds or transfers for participant entry fees and purchases for participant cancellation, no-shows or event cancellation including but not limited to cancellation due to weather. The event may not be rescheduled. As with any racing events, the money invested in making the event happen is spent regardless if zero runs are made or 1000 runs are made.
In the event of bad weather, we will stop runs for a period of time to wait for the weather to pass, just like we have done at previous events. Our goal is to provide our participants with the most runs possible. We apologize for any inconvenience that the no refunds policy might cause you.
