FORT WORTH, Texas (Oct. 7, 2011)
- Texas Motor Speedway's "No Limits" Garage Party Presented by WinStar World Casino is sure to put fans in a Lone Star state of mind on Sunday, Nov. 6, as the Liftmaster Garage will be donned with all things Texas prior to the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase race.
Though the 1.5-mile race track may already seem like a bull ring during the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup with tempers flaring, hard racing and tough competition, Texas Motor Speedway is constructing a 100-by-100-foot dirt arena for an authentic bull-riding event put on by Stockyards Championship Rodeo.
"There really isn't anything we won't do for the fans at the 'No Limits' Garage Party," Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. "We previously have brought in a 250-by-200-foot wakeboard pool for a Wakeboard Rail Jam performance, built a high-banked roller derby track for a bout by Oklahoma's Outwest Outlaws and now we're bringing in 632,000 pounds of dirt to host an actual rodeo."
The event consists of 50 bull riders and 60 head of cattle, and a $3,000 purse is up for grabs. For fans wanting to experience the life of the rodeo first-hand, they can hop on a mechanical bull to test their bull-riding skills or have a photo taken with an authentic Longhorn Steer.
Other Texas-themed entertainment includes cowboy and cowgirl living statues, pig races and goat dressing, in which two three-person teams are to dress goats as quickly as possible. And the circus doesn't stop there.
The acrobats of Trapeze Austin, LLC will be soaring four stories high through the air above the Liftmaster Garage, providing a breathtaking aerial show. Fans can experiment with their own acrobatic techniques in 6.6-foot Bubble Runners - inflatable balls that people roll, flip, run and spin like hamsters in without getting wet in an inflatable pool.
The "No Limits" Garage Party Presented by WinStar World Casino stage will again feature live music with Austin-based and hard rock classic band LC ROCKS as well as driver and VIP guest Q&A sessions and a live DJ. Other entertainment taking place in the Liftmaster Garage prior to the AAA Texas 500 includes a pit stop challenge, appearances by "The Great American Sweethearts!" and a WinStar World Casino gaming tent.
The "No Limits" Garage Party Presented by WinStar World Casino will begin at 9 a.m. CT and is one of many benefits for PSL and season-ticket holders at Texas Motor Speedway. Other benefits include discounted pit passes, camping, parking (including Tailgater Monthly Pit Stop Park), concessions, merchandise and tickets to other speedway events.
