Texas World Speedway

Texas World Speedway was an oval superspeedway with several road course configurations, located 70 miles northwest of Houston, Texas, near College Station.

The oval ceased operations in 1996. The road course ceased operation after Hurricane Harvey in 2017 when the property was diverted for storage of flood damaged cars. The property will eventually be given over to housing development.
