M3- One Man, One Machine, One Mile, No Speed Limit

“Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
Engines pumping and thumping in time.
The green light flashes, the flags go up.
Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup.
They deftly maneuver and muscle for rank,
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank.” (Cake: “The Distance”)

“Because he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He’s racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He’s going the distance.
He’s going for speed.
He’s going the distance.” (Cake: “The Distance”)

Speed demons from everywhere buzzed in to Beeville for The Texas Mile this weekend for 3 days of adrenaline-packed adventure. The Texas Mile is a venue for anyone with the need for speed. The racers compete one at a time for their personal best speed on one mile of straight runway. The session is open to anyone who has something with an engine and who can register on time. Race cars, race trucks, motorcycles, even motorized bicycles, you name the type of vehicle, the type of driver, and age of any of them, it was all there! One man (or woman), one machine–one mile, no speed limit!
