    Sewell Performance provided breakfast and lunch daily as well as a couple of canopies to protect spectators during the heat of the day.  Thanks to everyone who attended and supported this event, especially to Sewell and Ken Batchelor Cadillac for their continued support of the Texas V-Club.

    For the past year we have been using the local "Cars and Coffee" events as our regular monthly "gathering of V-Club members".  With the support of Sewell and Ken Batchelor Cadillac, a complimentary breakfast or brunch has been provided for those members who attend these events. 

    However, while attendance has been good (especially at the Cars and Coffee event in Dallas, a lot of V-Club members would prefer not to get up at 6AM on Saturday mornings to attend a car show.  Therefore at a recent Board meeting a motion was approved to no longer use Cars and Coffee events as our official monthly meeting of the V-Club.

    Effective in July, each V-Club Chapter Director will select a venue and publish in advance on the V-Club calendar where the members will meet for that particular month.  It may be a different venue or restaurant each month and the days and/or time for the meeting may be also be different.  So always check the calendar monthly for the date, time and location although you will receive announcement notices prior to the event.

    V-Club members are certainly welcome to continue attending their local Cars and Coffee events but they will no longer be posted on the V-Club event calendar for "registration and confirmation of attendance".  If any V-Club member has a recommendation or suggestion for a monthly meeting, please contact your local Chapter Director.

    Since Sewell Performance Group is a sponsor of the upcoming wannaGOFAST Texas 1/2 Mile event in July at Horseshoe Bay and that event is our 1st annual North/South Region meeting, this venue will also serve as our official meeting for all V-Club Chapters for the month of July.  Be sure to check the calendar for the location of your local Chapter's meeting for August.

    Hope to see you at the upcoming event at Horseshoe Bay on July 12 & 13.  Sewell Performance Group will have their hospitality tent at the event and the V-Club is hosting a dinner at the Yacht Club on Saturday evening, July 12 for V-Club members and their guest.  Advance registration is mandatory to attend the event and dinner.

    Dallas Raceway has sold and will no longer be a drag racing venue. The land was purchased by Tim Jordan who plans to move his truck salvage company to that location.  It is a shame to see that "concrete palace" used for something other than a race track.   If you want to make some 1/4 mile passes close to DFW, Texas Motorplex in Ennis is one of the best 1/4 tracks in the country.  Texas Motorplex was opened in 1986 and is still going strong.

    Based on requests received during 2013 from V-Series owners not located in the State of Texas the Board of Directors recently voted to offer an Affiliate level of membership to non residents of Texas.  This new membership level will allow V-Series owners access to the member's only section of the website and Affiliate members will also receive an official Texas V-Club shirt and membership Id card.

    In addition, any time an Affiliate member is visiting Texas or attending a V-Club sponsored event in Texas, they will be able to take advantage of any amenities offered such as free meals or event discounts.  Affiliate members may also purchase V-Club emblem inserts, accessories and apparel from our online product catalog.

    As an Affiliate member, you will be able to connect with other V-Series owners who are members of the Texas V-Club and you will also contribute to our growth.
