Cleetus and Cars Event @ Royal Purple Raceway
Oct 20 @ 2:00 PM – 11:00 PM

A few years ago the National Afro American Corvette Club (NAACC) did an annual event for all Houston based Corvette Clubs to get together. This is back and they are inviting us to join them on October 20th to participate in a Cruise and Display fun day to Royal Purple Raceway.

This year we have been invited to join the Cleetus and Cars Event at Houston Raceway (Royal Purple Raceway). Come and join us and watch the Demolition Drag Racing, Burnout Contest, and Drag Racing all day. Our goal is to have over 100 Corvettes parade down the track between Drag Racing and Demolition Racing.

Also, there will be Corvette Exhibition Racing in which any one of the guest Corvette Clubs can participate. All racers must go through the Race Techs in order to participate and the fee is $40. If you register online the entry fee is $15 per person and $20 per person at the gate in order to be admitted. Attached is the flyer for registration information. It has been two years since we had an opportunity as Corvette Enthusiasts to get together. For more information go to WWW.HoustonRaceway.com and click on Events to purchase tickets for $15 per person.

Lunch with Mike at Neighbors Kitchen and Yard @ Buc-ee's - Katy
Oct 27 @ 8:30 AM

When: Saturday, October 27, 2018
Where: Buc-ee’s – Katy 27700 Katy Fwy At I-10 and Cane Island Parkway (Meet at the North-west corner of Buc-ee’s)
Driver’s Meeting: 8:30 a.m.
Depart: 8:45 a.m.

Ever think about riding in the MS150, but not on a bike? Join us for a fun run through the countryside west of Houston. We will run many of the same miles that the MS150 cyclists travel to Austin every year. Leaving AGAIN from Buc-ee’s (love those nice, clean bathrooms) in Katy, then winding our way thru Bellville, Winchester and Fayetteville.

We will end up at Neighbors Kitchen and Yard in Bastrop for a fun lunch on the banks of the Colorado River. Neighbors is a breath of fresh air, serving up quality scratch-made food, craft cocktails, and live tunes. If you want to hang around awhile after lunch, check out the hiking trail next to the Colorado, rent a bike or take a canoe or kayak tour.

If you’re not into the physical thing, stroll a couple of blocks away and enjoy Bastrop. It is a quaint and charming small town with fantastic places to eat, shop and play. Downtown boasts numerous art galleries, antiques and craft shops. For something out of the ordinary, check out Bastrop’s Historic Farm Street Chicken Sanctuary, where chickens roam the street protected from fast drivers (those nasty Mustangs) and anyone wishing to harm them.

Heading home and looking for something different, try the ride through Bastrop and Buescher State Parks. Not going to break any speed records, but some beautiful views, even in the wake of the devastating fires. There is a small drive-thru fee, but all for a good cause.

Please call Carl or Duane if you have any questions:
