On March 30th you will have the opportunity to drive paved back roads through Old South towns with plenty of unique sights, such as Liberty, home of the 38th Governor of Texas and Honey Springs. We will see the towns of Batson and Saratoga where early oil booms over 100 years ago helped make Texas the number one oil producer in the U.S. by 1910.  Many of the wells in that area are still producing which you can see from the road. We then drive through the Big Thicket Nature Preserve where the Redbuds, Dogwoods and wildflowers will be in bloom. Following the Big Thicket drive, we briefly tour the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation before stopping for a fried chicken lunch at the world-famous Pickett House in Heritage Village where we will have a private room. This is at 157 Private Road 6000 in Historic Woodville home of the 37th Governor of Texas. After lunch we drive through Doucette, the boyhood home of U.S. Senator John Tower (1961 to 1979) and continue the drive to Jefferson, once the commercial center of Northeast Texas over back roads with many hills and curves. We will make a short stop at the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame at 310 W. Panola in Carthage on the way.  (Birthplace of both Jim Reeves and Tex Ritter).  Jefferson, home of the 21st Governor of Texas has 66 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places and many places of interest including 4 museums. There are three historic hotels with rooms available including the Excelsior House built in 1858 which is on the National Register and is the oldest continually operating hotel in Texas. All remaining rooms at this small hotel have been set aside for our group. Their number is 903-665-2513. Two other small hotels have rooms available for our group in Jefferson, the Kahn at 903-601-4434 and the Jefferson at 903-665-2631. 
This trip is limited to 30 cars and rooms in Jefferson will book early as this is their “high season”. The cost per car is $50.00 through which includes a welcoming cocktail party on Saturday night in the Excelsior House Ballroom. There are several dining establishments in the area and arrangements have been made for a maximum of 32 persons for supper at the Stillwater Inn, 203 E. Broadway, (903-665-8415) a French restaurant in a Victorian house in Jefferson.  For further information contact the Tour Chairman, Edwin Goldman at or George Bishop at  The tour participants will meet at 8:30 A.M. on Saturday the 30th at the Sunoco Station in Humble at the intersection of Will Clayton Parkway and the Eastex Freeway, also known as Highway 59 or I69. The address of the Sunoco Station is 18228 Eastex Freeway. We will leave from there after a short driver’s meeting. This will be a very interesting tour , come join us !
LSR incurs significant costs in having a High Speed Driving Event.  These costs include the track rental, corner workers, etc.  These are generally non-refundable costs to LSR. 

LSR has the following cancellation policy relating to DE participants (effective as of January 1, 2011)
1.  IF you cancel prior to 10 days before the DE (prior to noon on the Wednesday one week before the event), and we are able to substitute another participant in your place, we will refund your fees.  Otherwise, all funds will be forfeited by you. 
2.  IF you cancel within 10 days before the event (after noon on the Wednesday one week before the event) or do not show up for the DE, all funds will be forfeited by you. 

In the unusual situation where the DE is canceled by LSR, all participants will receive either your return of your payment or credit for a future DE event. 
To make things clear:
(1) Application is based on the time of payment.  If, at the time of registration, you do not pay, another applicant who pays before you will be accepted before you.  Remember time of payment counts!
(2) PCA members will receive a 7-day preference before non-PCA members.  After 7-days, all applications will be treated equally.  Register early!
(3) It is your responsibility to enter your verified PCA membership number.  If no number is entered at registration, it will be assumed that you are not a PCA members.  As such, you will be treated as a non-PCA member.  It is YOUR responsibility.  If you have not entered your PCA number, it is your fault and you will lose any preference!

We will email you when your application has been accepted, which is contingent on your payment having been received.  You can always check www. ClubRegistation. net for your status. 

Verified PCA Members shall be given acceptance preference over non-members for the first 7 days that the application process is open.  After the first 7 days, applications are accepted on an as-received basis for PCA members and non-members.  This means that a non-member who submits an application and makes payment during the first seven days will have preference over a member who makes payment after the first seven days, even if applied on-line within the first seven days. 
For a PCA Member to be verified, he/she must include his/her PCA membership number, which will be verified by our system as the correct and current membership number associated with that member. 
THERE ARE NO WALK-ONS ON TH DAY OF THE EVENT, regardless of whether or not all places at the DE have been filled. 

Since it is possible to apply to participate in a DE without making payment, your application is time-stamped as to when you make payment, not as to when you made the on-line application.  Applicants are encouraged to pay at the same time as they make their application. 
Our system will record your time of payment as your application time.  Irrespective of when you apply on-line, your application will not be accepted until your payment (via PayPal) has been received.  This means that if someone applies after you but pays before you, the other person will be accepted before you.  For example, if there is only one spot available and you apply but do not pay, then someone who pays before you, even if they applied after you, will get that spot!

There are about 20 garages available for rent by participants for each event ($50 per weekend).  At the time you make your on-line application, you can request a garage. 
Garage preferences are the same as the for the application; however, you do not pay for the garages at time of application.  If you are assigned a garage, we will advise you sometime during the week before the event.  At that time, it will be necessary for you to make your payment through the on-line registration system.
