DFW MAP RALLY
Wise - Jack Edition
A FUN ROADRALLY FOR STREET-LEGAL CARS -- TO GPS OR NOT GPS, THAT IS THE QUESTION!
The Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America invites you to a fun drive in the country around Decatur, Texas. The team who visits all the required landmarks in the shortest distance will win, and the winners will receive awards. Speed is not a factor.
- Rally Day: Saturday, August 25, 2012
- Starting Place: Shell Station at US 380 and Business 380 northeast of Decatur. Due to construction, Business 380 may not be identified. Just turn left as soon as you see the big Shell service station on your left, then enter the station at the first driveway.
- Registration opens at 9:00am on Rally Day. After registering, you will receive your instructions for the odometer check, which ends near Eagles Canyon Raceway (ECR) on FM 51. Registration will close at 10:00am.
- After the odo check, you will drive a short distance to ECR, where you will receive your instructions for finding the ten locations in Wise and Jack Counties that you have to find, and then visit.

- Route: You choose your route from maps provided. You may use any public road you wish in your attempt to log the shortest distance on your odometer. There are short stretches of unpaved (but good quality) road as you approach certain landmarks (e.g., those cited in questions 3 and 9), and, depending on your chosen route, you may encounter additional stretches of good quality unpaved road, though we would expect this to be the exception.
