Big Bend Open Road Race

Fort Stockton has hosted the northern end of the Big Bend Open Road Race for eight years now, and, would like to extend a West Texas Welcome for you to join us on the fun and excitement. Together with Sanderson we put on one of the best road races around not to mention we have one of the most breath taking and challenging roads to race : fifty-nine miles each way for a total of a 118 mile course.

Enthusiasts call this one of the most exciting open road races in the world. The event draws racers from around the U.S. to match their skills against 118 miles of twists, turns, and elevation changes. The route follows Highway 285 from Fort Stockton to Sanderson and back. The event also features a car show, parade and more.
