CMRA at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, TX, This Weekend

This coming weekend, August 23-25, 2013, the Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association (CMRA) will be tearing up the track at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, Texas. The track is located 14 miles south of Fort Worth on Highway 377, and the 1.7-mile, 11-turn track will be run counterclockwise this weekend.

The weekend activities begin at 7:00 a.m. Friday with a CMRA License school, racer practice and street-rider track day provided by Lone Star Track Days (

Saturday's schedule begins at 8:00 a.m. on the 1.7-mile track with Mini practice followed by a full slate of Mini sprint races including our one-of-a kind Junior Motard race designed for our youngest racers, ages 8-12, followed by Big Bike Endurance practice. The 6-Hour Big Bike Endurance begins promptly at 12:00, after the conclusion of the 30 minute lunch break. Activity on the “big track” concludes with a Track Walk from 6:40 – 7:40 p.m. Saturday's events conclude with a trophy presentation and track side racer/spectator Meet and Greet party.

Sunday's schedule is jam-packed with a full day's worth of exciting and competitive Big Bike sprint races. Qualifying for Sunday’s premier race, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation/P1Racing Formula 1 Expert, begins at 9:45 a.m. The main event is the last race before the lunch break and the spectator lap of the track. Motorcycle road racing doesn't get much better than CMRA sprint racing where some of the fastest racers in the country grid up to show them how it's done in Texas!
