It’s Pedal to the Metal for Texas Mile in October
The flat-out top speed challenge known as the Texas Mile will return to Victoria Regional Airport in October, thanks to approval by the airport commission who approved a new contract for the event.
According to a published report in the Victoria Advocate, the airport will earn $3 for every ticket sold, compared to the previous agreement, which paid the airport that amount, but only after the first 2,000 tickets were sold. The new agreement also gives the airport $25 for RVs parked at the airport during the event.
Victoria officials are working on ways to improve the event for spectators, including a grandstand and even a jumbotron.
The event is scheduled for the weekend of October 26th.
