2013 Texas Auto Roundup in the Car of TEXAS – Shelby GT 500

We’ve gathered with all our friends from around Texas and outward with the Texas Auto Writers Association for our annual Texas Auto Roundup. We hosted 53 vehicles which competed in 19 categories. The weather at the Texas Motor Speedway complex was near-perfect, and 47 media members were on hand to evaluate the drivability, the functionality, and the overall experience of the vehicles from 13 different manufacturers.

Top honors at the Texas Auto Writers Associations’ 2013 Auto Roundup indicate that Texans like their performance cars and that Texas is a market of active families on the move together. Ford’s Mustang Shelby GT500 and dramatically redesigned Fusion won Car of Texas and Family Car of Texas, respectively. The new-for-2013 model, the 640-horsepower SRT Viper GTS was voted Supercar.

We’ll have some Quick Drive Reviews and some Full Reviews coming soon so stay tuned!

Here is the full list of categories and winners:
