Road Rally

August 18, 2018
DFW Shortest Distance Map Rally

Registration Open

Entry List

The Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America invites you to a fun drive in the country in Wise County, Texas. We give you a map and a list of questions to be answered by visiting specific locations on the map. With this year’s theme, locations to be visited are vineyards, wineries, cemeteries and other fun places. You determine your route, go to each location, and answer a question that verifies you have been there. The team who visits all the required landmarks in the shortest distance will win, and the winners will receive awards. Speed is not a factor.

  • Rally Day: Saturday, August 18, 2018
  • Registration and Starting Place: The Horny Toad Café & Bar, 5812 I-35, Denton, TX 76207 (in Stonehill Center).

  • After registration, you will receive your instructions for conducting an odometer calibration run (in order to normalize all of the entrants’ odometers), which ends at Catfish O’Harlie’s (see below)
  • At the end of the odo check, you will receive your maps and instructions for locating seventeen locations in Wise County that you have to visit.
