Texas Motor Speedway is a speedway located in the northernmost portion of the U.S. city of Fort Worth, Texas – the portion located in Denton County, Texas. The reconfigured track measures 1.500 mi with banked 20° in turns 1 and 2 and banked 24° in turns 3 and 4.

Currently, events hosted by Urban Racing at Texas Motor Speedway are pro-geared events for drivers who like to live on the edge.

The Texas Motor Speedway Skid Pad will run in 3 groups, divided and color coded as green, yellow, and red windshield stickers. (TRAFFIC LIGHT COLORS) 

  1. Green Sticker - Drivers that have never been to an event and are still learning the basic drifting dynamics. These drivers will be sent one at a time with a max of 2 on the track at once. Cars need to be widely spaced apart to prevent collisions. Staff will be available to provide tips and instruction.

  2. Yellow Sticker - Intermediate drivers that can complete a solid lap, but don't have too much tandem experience. These drivers can be sent in short increments with multiple drivers on the track at once.

  3. Red Sticker - Expert drovers that can tandem, especially in groups. These drivers can be sent out in packs as long as they coordinate with each other & staff beforehand.




  • Classes will be chosen on by the driver when they register.

  • Drivers will have a sticker for their color placed on their windshield during tech inspection.

  • Run groups will be split into 45-minute sessions that alternate throughout the day. 

  • Driver classes are subject to change depending on skill level.

  • Skid pad manager has sole discretion to downgrade or upgrade drivers.

  • Drivers can ask skid pad staff to watch them to determine if they can move into a higher class.

  • Each group will be capped at 15 drivers to keep wait times down.

  • Drivers that purchase road course tickets will be allowed to run Skid Pad in the Yellow or Red class to ensure flow of seat time.




​Drivers will be split into run groups according to driver skill level. (See run group poster for detailed breakdown)

Strikes will be used to ensure everyone gets the seat time they are paying for and to provide a streamlined system for driver accountability while also keeping the venue happy. We will be implementing a 1 warning & 3 strike system.​

  1.  First a warning will be given and the driver will have the opportunity to correct the issue.

  2. The first strike will be given after a warning. The driver will again have the opportunity to correct the issue, and some staff instruction from a fellow driver will be available.

  3. The strike will result in a s 30-minute time off track.

  4. The third strike will result in removal from track and/or downgrade in driver class. Drivers with 3 strikes will need to talk to a track manager to discuss how to improve their issues.

  • Going completely off track will result in a strike.

  • Going outside the coned area on Skid Pad will result in a strike (don't hit the expensive fence)
