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)

DFWLX Central Monthly M&G – Irving TX – 3rd Friday!

As the DFW area continues to grow and expand, DFWLX modern mopar club grows with it. As our family expands with new members, it becomes more difficult for everyone to get to know one another, mainly because DFWLX events span the entire DFW area. The staff noticed this change and wanted to create a way where members, new and old, could come together as one and share their passion for family, for DFWLX, and of course, their cars!

The new era has begun! DFWLX brings you an event created for one single purpose… to bring us together! DFWLX offers so many different activities to attend: track races, autocross, car shows, car meets, game arcades, picnics & so much more. The staff wanted to have an event where our members could interact in a more relaxed manner. We have heard time and time again from our members that this club brings people together and creates strong friendships along the way. We wanted to make sure that it continues to happen & by creating this monthly event, we will be doing just that. As everyone knows – the main reason we are members of DFWLX is for our vehicles – yes they are pretty wicked & we love seeing the modifications made, but that only goes so far. The cars bring us together, but DFWLX members set us apart from the rest.

Our first Central Meet and Greet was held on August 16, 2013, at MBBC Church in Irving. The turnout was tremendous with 72 vehicles and nearly 100 people! That was a great showing for our first central meet, and it can only get bigger and better. The event allowed members to pick up decals, apparel, tag cards, and get to know one another!

This inaugural monthly event gave members the ability to finally put a face to the screen name from the club forum. There were new modifications to show since the last meet, new cars to view and new respected opinions to give regarding how to improve the “show and go” of each car!

Also, Hi-Def Auto Detail showed up to do a demonstration and to sell their products at a discount to DFWLX members. IMG_0043_zps6c305b46

The first Central Meet was a great test, but also allowed the staff to see what improvements could be made. There are future plans for more club apparel, decals, magazines, vendors, AND food trucks for out monthly event! DFWLX members are stoked about having a regularly scheduled time and place to meet and get a chance to get to know each other. We’ve created a way for DFWLX members to share their passion for cars in person, rather than behind a computer screen.

Every third Friday, the DFWLX staff will host the Central Meet and Greet at the MBBC Church in Irving. We are hoping this monthly event will bring out more members in the future, and help make DFWLX bigger and better!

Heights Car Show / Club Participation Award – April 20th 2013

Great Weather and Awesome cars!!! This year’s Heights Car Show brought in a total of 359 cars. Of those 359 cars, 24 of them were representatives from the DFWLX Club resulting in receiving the Club Participation award for the 2013 show. The show included live music, along with food vendors, held in a great venue. We’d like to thank all of our members who once again showed up in huge numbers to support another opportunity to benefit a local charity, The Network Food Bank of Richardson.
