Every spring, a fleet of Ferraris, Mustangs, and Lamborghinis along with some scrappy, self-proclaimed jalopies descend on West Texas for the annual Big Bend Open Road Race. The race, the first of which was held in 1998, follows a 118-mile route from Fort Stockton to Sanderson and back. This year’s weekend of speed (think 160-plus miles per hour) brought rain delays, a power outage, and some true Texas characters.
