Spotlight On …

Around the Ennis community, the Texas Motorplex and the O’Reilly Auto Parts and Super Start Batteries NHRA Fall Nationals are an event folks look forward to all year long.
This year, as the facility celebrates its 25th birthday with events Sept. 23-26, patrons and race fans will have even more to cheer about.
Built in 1986 by professional funny car racer and Waco businessman Billy Meyer, the Texas Motorplex is located two miles west of Ennis on Hwy. 287 and was the first all-concrete facility dedicated to drag racing.

Drag racing sees cars exceed speeds of 320 mph and engines roar with 8,000 horsepower as flames blast out of tailpipes, propelling drivers as quickly as zero to 100 mph in less than half a second.
