    We may-or-may-not be invited to the Next Billion tour, but we can always have events nearby. Come to one or all of these activities, just minutes from the Southlake Hilton, site of the Next Billion tour:


    SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 2015


    Cars at the Club — Texas Motor Speedway 8a-Noon


    From TMS:
    Hop in your pride and joy and join us at The Speedway Club for camaraderie and conversation with people who love cars. And coffee…there will be coffee!


    Free! Laps on the track start at 11:00, so get there before then to have a few ceremonial laps.




    Lunch — Tacos & Avocados, Roanoke Noon - 1p
    101 S Oak St #300, Roanoke, Texas 76262



    Lunch in historic downtown Roanoke at Tacos & Avocados. Yum!


    Shannon Brewing, Keller — You know the drill 1p-5p
    818 N Main St, Keller, Texas 76248



    Assuming Tesla doesn’t invite us to the Next Billion Tour, let’s show off the cars to aficionados of fine ales.

    We had a great morning at TMC. I will link to the video later, but here are some pictures. We got to do three laps and I understand at least one of us topped out at 110 MPH.

    TMS Video!

    Dash cam footage of our laps around TMS. One Tesla driver reported reaching 110 MPH -- I can neither confirm nor deny what the dash cam reported. BONUS: Stay to the end to see what happened to the cute Fiat 500 that acted like he was going to pass me!

    Clearly light bending because we were going so fast.
