As the news focuses on the negative street racing aspect of the TX2K event in Houston, the organized and sanctioned motorsports competition continues to stay true to its roots as the mecca for Supra owners. The biggest names in the 2JZ world descend on Penzoil Raceway Park near Houston, TX for the annual gathering with the roll racing and drag racing being the main focus of the excitement.
In addition to the Supra and GT-R presence, the roll racing attracts exotic cars, Corvettes, and Mustangs—among other vehicles—as race promoters try to bring the illegal street racing to the track in a safe environment. Once the roll racing concludes on Saturday all eyes shift to dig racing as an assortment of Supra, GT-R, and street car classes take center stage.
That Racing Channel, a South Florida based YouTube group, followed Geo Castillo and Jay Meagher of Real Street as they chase racing glory with a Supra. Castillo has seemingly done it all with his Supra from standing mile competitions to Hot Rod Magazine Drag Week, X275 heads-up racing, and—of course—TX2K. The car has become an internet-sensation, transcending brand-loyalty as it showcases grit, determination, and ingenuity. Castillo has stayed true to the street car theme, an important fact as he still enjoys cruising the streets of Orlando with his Supra.
The above video is a 42-minute documentary in their trials and tribulations in their quest to win and achieve a 200 mph pass in the quarter-mile.
