The 2016 Texas Miata Challenge      11   drivers currently signed up.

For 2016, it’s time to take your Miata to the weird side. Weird Texas, that is. All of the challenge sites were inspired by (and some were featured in) "Weird Texas: Your Travel Guide to Texas’ Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets" by Wesley Treat, Heather Shade, and Rob Riggs. Descriptions and addresses came from The goal is to take a picture of yourself with your car at each location. Participation is NOT LIMITED to Lone Star Miata Club members! So without further ado, here are next year’s challenge destinations:

Participating in the Challenge is a fun way to see parts of the state you may not have thought of going to. Invite other members of your club to go with you, or strike out on your own. Whichever way your choose, you get to drive a Miata across Texas!

Drive to each of the 10 designated points in Texas. Take a picture of you, your Miata, and the specified item at each destination. (Or get as close as you can with the car!) Each picture should include a date stamp on the picture if possible. If both driver and co-pilot are participating, both must appear in the picture, or there should be a picture of each of them. Entries with all 10 destinations will receive a specially designed pin and t-shirt. Pictures can be submitted either digitally or as 4x6 prints on photo quality paper. Mail or turn entries into Bruce Gibson by October 1 of each year. Awards will be given out at the Annual Miata State Roundup.

Mail 4x6 prints to: Bruce Gibson, 1020 Mesa Ct., Shady Shores, TX, 76208

or email to: Bruce Gibson at

So get out and drive your Miata around our beautiful state! Take your pictures and also take time to explore the area around the challenge site. It is not just about being there and getting a t-shirt, but also about driving our fun cars to new locations and getting a chance to see what else is there.
