    Does anyone know where the gumball3000 cars are going to be in Houston? As per the website Houston is one of the scheduled stops.

    Same with Dallas. I want to stop by but I can't if they pass in the morning, which is when they will I assume.

    I'm sure if you check with RUF Auto Centre, you might find out a few things.

    I noticed that. However, if the rally is going through Houston and not Dallas, what kind of cars could we expect at this display?

    It's going to Dallas first and down to Houston (Lamborghini Houston is doing some even with the Reventon according to the Gumball site) then from there to New Orleans and Florida. Dallas is an official stop, IDK anything about Houston. I believe the Dallas display is all the cars in the rally, cuz don't they party all night???

    Our check-point stop on route from Dallas to New Orleans isn't even in
    Houston, its actually at the Lone Star Drag strip in Sealy.

    This info comes for Julie Brangstrup VP of the Rally

    No idea. They are leaving Dallas at 9:30 AM, so I assume it will take about 4 hours...?

    They should be leaving Dallas around 8 Wednesday morning for Houston. The Reventon is not confirmed on coming out or showing up but they have been talking to Lambo Houston. Also, they should be at Hennessy around 2pm and they do plan on racing. Personal rivalries like Tony Hawk vs. DJ Muggs (I think), the Bugattis against eachother, and hopefully the SSC against one of the Veyrons.

    lol Think about this too: When's the next time the Gumball 3000 will be in the United States? Or, more than that: When's the next time it will come through Texas. They're going to try to get those races up on YouTube of course but I'd love to see them in person.

    FYI: The next time they'll be in the United States is next year when they drive from London, take a ferry up north, drive over to Canada, and then down to New York.

    That explains why I saw 2 Lamborghini Gallardo’s yesterday in the NW Area around 4:30? HWY 290 @ Cypress N. Houston. Lost maybe?
