We are excited to announce the return of the Greater Houston Race Series (GHRS) for 2024!

 

All online early race entries are eligible for the Free set of tires drawing at the driver’s meeting!

 

NOTE: The new compound Evinco tires are now available, GHRS races will be "drivers choice" of either the old or new compound tires applicable to your race class. 

 

The Greater Houston Race Series will be a 14-race season, 7 at Speedsportz and 7 at GCKI. This will be made up of a Spring and Fall Championship, with the best 5 out of 7 races per season counting for points. To be eligible for a season championship you must compete in at least 2 events at each track per Spring or Fall Season. (Double header counts as one race event for drop purposes)

In addition to the Spring and Fall Series winners, the 2024 GHRS overall Championship will be the combined Spring and Fall Series best 5 of 7 race points. A minimum of 4 races per venue is required to qualify for the 2024 overall championship.
