Recognition and 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
Published Speeds and Accomplishments on The Texas Mile Web Site:
Each Driver/Rider that reaches 200+ can purchase a coveted 200 MPH Club Shirt
For all, MPH is calculated by a speed trap located at the last 132 feet of The Texas Mile. Timing equipment includes timing lights and lazers hooked to a computer designed for calculating top speed runs.
Display Boards and Announcements:
There are three display boards that show the unoffical speed of each Texas Mile 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:
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 Drivers/Riders:
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 :
For those that set records in their class, your information will be recorded in THE TEXAS 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.
