Full Event Results from the October 24-26, 2014 Texas Mile

The October 2014 Texas Mile Event had absolutely gorgeous weather and we were able to complete 1241 runs for the weekend. 97 of those runs were over 200 MPH making this the fastest overall event we have ever had!

Check out all of the highlights from the October 2014 event below.

Highlights & Records

  • FASTEST VEHICLE OF THE WEEKEND: Mark Hediaker’s, M2K Motorsport Ford GT was back in action at this event with a whole new look. Dressed up in its new Gulf paint scheme the Ford GT hit a whopping 273MPH…. twice! Although they did not beat their own current record they do get the bragging rights as the overall fastest vehicle of the event weekend.
  • FASTEST MOTORCYCLE RIDER & FASTEST FEMALE OF THE WEEKEND: This honor goes to Brenda Carver who went 227.7 MPH. Brenda has been a long time participant of the Texas Mile and continues to go faster and faster. Make sure to look for her in her pink tutu in March of 2015.
  • NEW CADILLAC CTS-V RECORD: We had 24 registered Cadillac’s for the October 2014 event weekend the most we have had to date. The fastest Cadillac of the weekend was Andy Mages who went 211.9 MPH in his ADM Performance Supercharged 2011 Cadillac CTS-V. The previous record was held by Mark Marquardt at 200.9MPH; Mark was also the first person to take a Cadillac over 200 MPH. Andy is now the 2nd person to go over 200MPH in a Cadillac.

Special thanks to Sewell Performance, a Texas Mile Sponsor for 2014.

  • NEW PORSCHE TURBO RECORD: Congratulations to Tim Siachitano and his team who set a new Porsche Turbo record at 235.1 MPH besting his previous record of 227.1 MPH. Tim travels to the Texas Mile each year all the way from New York! He continues to go faster and we hope to see him in March 2015.
  • HORDES OF CORVETTES:  The love that people have for corvettes shows prominently at The Texas Mile. There were a total of 63 registered corvettes for the October event. This is the most we have ever had in one event. The fastest Corvette of the weekend was Mike Robinson who went 205.9 MPH in his 2006 Corvette Z06.
    Although, there was no new record set for the corvette group we look forward to March 2015 where we expect and anticipate a few Corvettes with some major Horsepower!
  • FIAT RECORD: Congrats to George Harbeson who bested his previous record of 119.2MPH to 123.8MPH! That is one fast little car.
  • WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT: The Texas Mile is a proud supporter of The Wounded Warrior Project. This past weekend we had more than 50 wounded warriors and their families stop in to check out the event. During the event our staff had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Trimble who is a veteran that was wounded in Afghanistan in 2011. Kevin has an incredible spirit and we wanted to do something special for him to thank him for all of the sacrifices he has made for us and this country. The Texas Mile staff teamed up with AC Motorsports (also an event sponsor) and devised a plan to surprise Kevin with a ride in the AC Motorsports Audi R8. Kevin was thrilled and more than happy to do a ride along. Kevin and driver JC Slaton went 180MPH.
