ENNIS, Texas — Texas Motorplex is set to host one of this year’s largest outdoor motorsports events in the state of Texas with its 35th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals, Oct. 14-18.

Governor Greg Abbott and the state of Texas have approved guidelines that will allow Texas Motorplex to welcome up to 50 percent of its capacity.

“We will be encouraging fans to wear masks when social distancing isn’t an option,” said Andy Carter, Texas Motorplex General Manager. “We have the advantage of 500 acres of outdoor space to host the NHRA FallNationals with our pits open to the public which provides a lot of space for our fans to spread out and enjoying great racing action. I want to thank Governor Abbott and his staff for the support they have shown us since we started racing in May. We have had over a dozen events with fans and could not be more excited to host a national event for North Texas.”

The track, located just outside of Dallas/Fort Worth, will provide masks for any fan in need through the event and have multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout the property. The pit area will be reconfigured to allow wider traffic flow for the traditional NHRA behind the scene’s access to its professional competitors.
