Ok, I cannot tell a lie, I don't know a whole lot about open road racing but I have several friends who are fanatics. I love seeing their FB, IG or Snapchats videos. Talk about adrenaline-filled, intense, awesome racing! If you yourself are a fan or want to see what open road racing is all about, maybe this event is for you? It is a short, less than 3 hour drive to check out some open road racing. 

The Big Bend Open Race takes place this Saturday, April 23rd. According to bborr.com,

Enthusiasts call this the Most Challenging Open Road Races in the World.

So check out the route, according to their site, it follows Hwy 285 from Fort Stockton to Sanderson and back. This is a 118-mile course with twists, turns, and elevation changes.

And if that's not exciting enough, some of the most fabulous cars will be racing. I'm talking Porsches, Vipers, Mustangs, and even Corvettes.
