Drag Racing Series Postpones Texas Tango Nationals at
Houston Raceway Park to June 18-19 Due to Inclement
BAYTOWN, Texas (June 4, 2021)– Due to the current and
upcoming inclement weather forecasted for the area, Summit
Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series (MWDRS)
officials have postponed this weekend’s scheduled Texas
Tango Nationals at Houston Raceway Park.
The event is now scheduled to take place June 18-19 at HRP,
marking the series’ debut event at the famed track.
It was a difficult decision but after extensive
deliberation, the MWDRS team believed postponing the event
was the best move for all parties.
“Unfortunately, due to the increased chance of rain that
has continued to go up, and the unlikeliness of us being
able to complete our event, we have determined in the best
interest of our racers to postpone this weekend’s event,”
MWDRS Founder Keith Haney said.
“We apologize to those that made the trip to compete with
us this weekend. The forecast has dramatically taken a
turn for the worse over the past 12 hours, and our window
to get qualifying and an event in has greatly diminished.”
All entry fees for the event will be refunded.
Haney also announced that anyone currently on the premises
will be given one free day of testing on either the
Thursday or Friday of the rescheduled race weekend later
“We know there are race teams who have traveled and we
want to do our best to give back,” Haney said. “We
apologize to everyone. This is definitely not the outcome
we had hoped for. Thank you to each and every racer who
