The next Great Texas 300 will be held June 17-20, 2020 ... but the Dash is on!

The Great Texas will take a one year break from running in 2019 but will be back in 2020.  The Texas Dash is on though!  Come join us at Surfside June 15th!

Many of the participants of the Great Texas have expressed a desire to sail in the Worrell 1000 Reunion race (see  The Worrell 1000 has not been run in 16 years.  The Great Texas was created to fill in the gap left by the Worrell 1000.  Now that a one year reunion race has been announced, the officers of the Great Texas have decided to take a one year break to allow those that are interested in the Worrell to participate.  

We will be back in South Padre Island at 10 am on the Wednesday before Father's Day (June 17th) in 2020.
