Howdy y’all!

I have received official notification by local hill country authorities that the Raging Bull has been tamed! The Texas Stampede this past weekend has worn him out. The Bull, who left the chute strong and full of rage Saturday morning, is now weak and exhausted from battling all the Bull Riders. He appears to have accepted defeat, and has been returned to his pen where he will try to restore his strength for next year’s Bull Riders. No doubt, we will be stronger, better trained, and better prepared, too.

One of the Bull Riders from Woodsboro, Texas who drives a G35 Sedan wrote in one of the forums, “What a blast! I have driven like this before, but NEVER for 450 miles! I had so much fun. To finally drive my car like it's meant to be driven. Good fun, good friends, and fast cars. What a weekend. I can't wait for next year!”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank ALL OF YOU for making this year’s Raging Bull Texas Stampede a huge success. I believe it is on its way to becoming the best driving event in Texas.

25 cars.
40+ people.
$1,800 worth of products contributed by our Corporate Sponsors given away.

The experience of riding the Raging Bull for nearly 450 miles: Priceless.

A large part of the success of this year’s Stampede can be attributed to the enormous support and contributions provided by our club and corporate sponsors. Please consider visiting these clubs and businesses, let them know how much you appreciate their financial support and contributions, and tell them about your Stampede experience (especially if you won one of their prizes!). Our event would not have been possible without their support and contributions.

Our Club Sponsors
Z Club of Texas (Dallas)
Capital Z of Texas (Austin)

Our Corporate Sponsors

Finally, the biggest thanks go to all those who attended. What a friendly and committed group of driving enthusiasts it was! Many of you drove to Kerrville, Texas, our Stampede HQ, from far away corners of this great (and huge) state of Texas. I think it is safe to say that we all left with some unforgettable memories. I am always amazed at the quality of people this event attracts. Great people. Great cars. Driven with passion.

I look forward to seeing you all again at next year’s Raging Bull Texas Stampede. I guarantee the Raging Bull will be expecting us to ride him hard…again.

With warmest regards,

Your Humble Tourmaster
