Cars For Casa

This past Sunday (05-17-15) DFWLX participated in one of its favorite charity events – Cars for CASA. Even with the rainy start – we were able to take home our coveted club participation award! Thank you to each of our members who took the time to drive out to the Harbor in Rockwall and support such an amazing organization.  We would also like to give special recognition to the following club members for the individual awards: 


Mark – Class Award (Challenger Class)


Dino Childs – Class Winner / 06 & Newer Dodge Charger


James “Jazz Blue Hellcat” – Modern Mopar Class Winner


Alvaro Camarena – Class Award / 06 & Newer Dodge Charger 


DFWLX Modern Mopar – Club Participation Award 

Charity events are a special kind of event for DFWLX. When the moons align and the weather is right (and the food trucks are hustling) DFWLX will fill a parking lot for a good cause. We’ve done it more than once. As a group, our members are hard working, good-hearted, mopar loving families. With that said – we wanted to not only thank our members for always supporting local charity events, but to highlight the good that CASA does. For many of our members – they have no idea what CASA is all about. If you’ll give me a couple of minutes of your time, I will give you the quick rundown of what the amazing and selfless CASA volunteers do for the unnoticed children in our communities.  

“our members are hard working, good-hearted, mopar loving families”

CASA is an acronym for Court Appointed Special Advocates. When an abused or neglected child enters the court system, a judge will appoint them a CASA volunteer to watch over and advocate for them. Only them. The CASA advocate is charged with making sure the child doesn’t get lost in the overburdened legal & social services system or worse, get housed and stuck in a situation that offers nothing better than his biological home. The CASA advocate helps makes sure the child is taken care of not only physically, but is emotionally cared for and is properly bonding and is finding his/her way at school. The CASA advocate will often communicate with therapists to make sure visits aren’t being missed, make sure medication is being monitored, etc… They are an intricate part of the success of children who are in long term foster care.  

The CASA program is partially funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). Anyone who works for the federal government knows that funding at this level is bare minimum. The CASA program relies heavily on private funding and donations & the services of their volunteer advocates – meaning the CASA advocates are not compensated for their time invested into the children they are trying to save in our community. They need every ounce of support they can find. Below is the link to the CASA program to find more information. Let’s show CASA what DFWLX is all about – if you haven’t already, and if you can, please donate any amount, or if have the time and energy to volunteer for CASA, then fill out the form and start changing little lives. Personally, I am unbelievably proud to be part of a group that gives back to organizations and groups that need it.

Cars For Casa

Lone Star Mopar Fest 2014

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: 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.

Laps for Charity

Our DFWLX family came together to support the Speedway Children’s Charity.

The event started off with some delicious BBQ from Hard 8. From there we jumped in the cars on our caravan to Texas Motor Speedway. It was surreal watching all the LX’s run on the track & hearing those engines roar!

After everyone had enough turns on the track we settled in front of Big Hoss while we waited for Need For Speed to start.

“I wish this happened more often. I couldn’t get over the smiles everyone had on their faces after parking their cars. We really appreciate everyone that took the time to join us. This club is successful because of YOU.”  – Pedro Murillo (Ezcorpion)
