Texas World Speedway was built in 1969 and is one of only seven superspeedways of two miles (3 km) or greater in the United States used for racing, the others being Indianapolis, Daytona, Pocono, Talladega, Auto Club, and Michigan (there are several tracks of similar size used for vehicle testing). TWS is located on approximately 600 acres (2.4 km²) on State Highway 6 in College Station, Texas. There is a 2-mile (3 km) oval, and several road course configurations. The full oval configuration is closely related to that of Michigan and is often considered the latter's sister track, featuring steeper banking, at 22 degrees in the turns, 12 degrees at the start/finish line, and only 2 degrees along the backstretch, compared to Michigan's respective 18, 12, and 5 degrees.

  • De Texas World Speedway is een racecircuit gelegen in de Texaanse plaats College Station. Het is een ovaal circuit en bevat tevens drie wegcircuits. Het circuit werd gebruikt voor een race uit de USAC Champ Car tussen 1973 en 1979 en voor acht races uit de NASCAR Winston Cup tussen 1969 en 1981. In 1969 werd op het circuit een race gereden uit de Can-Am die gewonnen werd door Bruce McLaren. Momenteel worden er races gehouden uit kleinere raceklassen. Het circuit mag niet verward worden met de Texas Motor Speedway.

  • Der Texas World Speedway war eine Ovalstrecke in College Station, Texas. Sie ist zwei Meilen lang und wird oft als Zwillingsstrecke des Michigan International Speedway genannt, da sie die identische Form und Länge besitzt und im gleichen Zeitraum errichtet worden ist. Im Gegensatz zum Michigan Speedway ist der Texas World Speedway aber seit den 1980er Jahren nicht mehr Teil einer großen Rennserie wie der NASCAR oder der IndyCar Series. Der Grund dafür war eine zunehmende Vernachlässigung des Streckenzustandes.
