Texas Motor Press Association Announces Winners of Texas Off-Road Invitational

Although scheduled to go for over a month in advance, I had issues come up in my schedule that didn’t allow me to make it to this year’s TxMPA Off-Road Invitational. It’s too bad too as it looked like another great event with some great vehicles. The Off-Road Invitational is a different breed from our fall event, the Truck Rodeo hosted by the Texas Automotive Writers Association and this will be the first one I’ve missed out on.
