CHADBEE PHOTOGRAPHY: TX2K13 PHOTO COVERAGE

As most of you are aware, I left Atlanta bright and early on March 13th to start my journey to Houston Texas for what I consider to be the best automotive based event in the world, TX2k. This four day event is basically heaven on earth for the performance automotive enthusiast where you are able to see, experience and compete against some of the country’s fastest street cars.

The Omni Hotel, which is basically TX2k’s fortress, is THE place to be through out the weekend if you were not at an organized event. The Omni was a 24 hour car meet, party and of course a great place to find a few runs in “Mexico” if that is your thing.

Thursday morning I arrived at Texas World Speedway for the TX2k13 HPDE and Time Attack event. This has always been an impressive event filled with some incredible machines piloted by some very talented drivers. While most people in attendance were participating in the HPDE to just go enjoy their cars on track we also had a brave group of individuals ready to go to battle against each other and the clock. The highly competitive and talked about Time Attack started with all drivers strapping transponders to their cars which would record their lap times. When the dust settled our six fastest drivers would move on to the finial round of competition.

Congratulations is in order for the top fastest drivers of the day:

Paul C – tube frame Camaro racecar 1:45.62

Nathan C – (TopSpeed Motorsports GT-R) – 1:48.21

John M – (GT-R) – 1:50.378

Greigh K – (GT-R) – 1:51.705

Khib K – (GT-R) – 1:52.389

Jeremy R (SSP GT-R) – 1:52.428

On Friday Hennessy Performance once again hosted the TX2k dyno day and car meet. This event always brings out the biggest vendors and an always impressive collect of vehicles to be strapped to the rollers.

Later that night Lonestar Motorsports Park opened its gates for the TX2k13 night meet. Activities included a burnout contest, live music from local bands, lots of alcohol and the bikini contest.

Saturday and Sunday was when all the big boys came out to play for the Tx2k13 Drag Race Event. This notorious event brings competitors from all around the US and puts some of the most fierce machines against each other for two days. While it was clear to see the heavy GT-R influence this year the Supra, LSx and Mustang guys still represented to the fullest and we saw more than 20 8 second passes made during the event.

After the event was over, me and the guys from GT-R Heritage, AMS, Topspeed Motorsports got together for a couple quick photos before we were kicked out of the track.

Polivoks’s 4.4L Alpha 10, Tim Sanders legendary Alpha 12, and the 1600whp AMS Alpha Omega! Count THAT horsepower in one picture!

ATL GT-R’s TSM Built Alpha 12, which took home first place in the GT3 Unlimited Class and the AMS Alpha Omega which brought home honors of the highest trap speed of the event, crossing the 1320 marker at 172.9 MPH.
