TEXAS GAMBLER 500

 

FEB 9-11, 2018

THE APOCALYPSE OF THE TRASHIEST CARS AND THE ROWDIEST DRIVERS DESCENDS ON THE LONE STAR STATE. AND IT'S HAPPENING AT THE RALLY RANCH.

 

It's here, it's nasty, it's starting and ending at the Rally Ranch. The 2018 Texas Gambler 500 is taking over February 9th-11th for 2 days of the wildest, most ridiculous action in the Lone Star State. Presented by Houston Overland and hosted by Rally Ready Driving School, the course will take on.. well, we don't actually know what it will take on. But here at the Rally Ranch, it will lean into some of our most ridiculous terrain. Hill climbs, rally tracks, and off-road lunacy that will put your Gambler rig to the ultimate test.

Admission for a team of 2 people and a car is $60 online or $75 at the gate and includes 2 nights of camping (Friday and Saturday), and entry onto the Rally Ranch track for our opening and closing tracks covering as much of our 140 acre track as you dare drive. Additional campers are $10/ea.

VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS

While the Gambler rules basically don't exist, we do have a handful of simple requirements for vehicles at our facility. Please ensure your battery is tied down, your wheel bearings, suspension components, driveshafts are in proper working order, and your bodywork is, well, at least MOSTLY attached. If it falls off on the trails we'll probably just hang it from the nearest tree like a sad cross marking your epic failure. If your hideous contraption is as ugly under the hood as it is on the outside, we may ask you to take a moment to make it safe before disappearing into the woods.

The track will use as much hilarious, unreasonable terrain as we can put together in one big, ugly, slightly too long lap of the property. We'll personally test it in our own mostly-ruined Dodge Neon. If the Neon can make it, so can your pile of old sandwiches. 

Frankly, we're just a bunch of idiots looking to have as much fun as you, but we have to cover our asses. So please respect our space, be courteous to our property, and we'll make sure this is the most ridiculously fun Gambler in the country! We'll even have mechanics on standby to help fix whatever you might break.. The worse you break it, the higher the labor rate!

Remember, proceeds go towards helping open our new dog shelter, Fletch & Co, in honor of our late ranch pup, Fletch. Come by the Ranch House to meet our squad of hobo pups from the neighborhood and talk to us about getting more involved if you'd like!

Can't wait to see you low-income lunatics in our dirty back yard in February! Oh, and watch out for the Samsquantches.
