DFWLX club members made the trip again this year to attend the Lone Star Mopar Fest. Friday night’s weather was perfect for the Mod FX Light contest at the host hotel. However, Saturday’s weather was a repeat of last year’s rain, but that didn’t dampen the experience at all. SCLX put forth full effort to turn what could have been bad into something great.
The race program was delayed but the event staff made some quick adjustments and setup an impromptu heads up golf cart slolam race program to fill the time. DFWLX club President Pedro “Ezcorpion” Murillo (blind-folded driver) and Event Planner Will “08daytona” Lee (co-pilot) to part in the first golf cart run of the day clearing most of the cones in their path. Second up was VP of Member Services Chris “Texasbrotha420″ Cassell (blind-folded driver) and DFWLX Magazine Creative Director Mario “MKnight” Baltierra (co-pilot) being the first to put their cart into the wall gaining a huge “Ohhhh!” from the spectators.
The bracket racing program did take place later in the afternoon with DFWLX Racing Team member Nick “Sparkyloti6789″ Lotich taking home a Bracket Race Champion trophy for his V6 Charger. Race Team Organizer and Challenger owner Jorge “surfer1420″ Suris raced his way into the Big Dawg (fastest eight cars of the day) program.
For this years event, the DFLWX club introduced the official club app (download here: http://my.yapp.us/H5U9FL). This app had a very good first showing allowing club members to instant chat, receive instant event updates, and post their own photos. Be sure to download the app to see additional photos that are not included below. The app will be an ongoing component to the DFWLX club for communication and sharing of content for future events so be sure to download it.
