Cruisin' Nocona -- May 6 & 7, 2022

2022 Cruisin' Nocona Wrap. See you in 2023!

WOW! What a gorgeous weekend for our 9th annual Cruisin’ Nocona event. Friday’s poker cruise through the North Texas Hill Country was an incredible drive. There were a few stops along the way – Spanish Fort historical talk; lunch at Arche Winery and Forestburg. The Gas Junkies’ Burnout was smoking! The weekend ended with the Gas Junkies’ Car Show on Saturday.

Thanks to everyone that came out and enjoyed the activities and to all the volunteers that made it possible!

What a FUN weekend!

Celebrate Spring by joining us for our 9th Annual Cruisin’ Nocona weekend! We have a jam-packed weekend in store for car and motorcycle lovers of all kinds. Enjoy the camaraderie and competition as we head into the weekend with some FUN!

Friday, May 6

Get out and enjoy the fresh air during our Cruisin’ Nocona Poker Cruise. This 120-mile journey takes you through the picturesque North Texas Hill Country, enjoying several stops along the way including lunch at one of our local wineries, Arche Winery.

This year we’ve added a historic stop at Spanish Fort. Bob Ferguson, owner of the Red River Station Inn in Nocona, Texas, will provide historical insight into the Red River Station area plus facts on the Taovayas Indian Tribe, as featured on Red Steagall’s show “West of Wall Street.”

Prizes will be awarded to the best poker hands - 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

End the day with an old-fashion burnout sponsored by the Nocona Gas Junkies. A burnout (also known as a peel out or power brake) is the practice of keeping a vehicle stationary and spinning its wheels, the resultant friction causing the tires to heat up and smoke. Cars come from near and far to show off how they can burn rubber for 20 seconds! There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes awarded in two different categories: stock & modified.
