Reroute around Dallas

Were winter Texans that need to go back to the snow. Leaving Victoria TX for SW Minnesota. Ideally 77 to Waco then 35W to i29. Real easy. Problem is were going through Fort Worth the weekend of the NASCAR race. FW is a nightmare anyway but Im afraid the race will make it a parking lot on Sat and Sun. Has anyone ran 35e through downtown Dallas on a Sat. or Sun. (midday) or is there a decent secondary highway that would take us north past Dallas then work us back to i35w. That road could be anywhere from Houston to Dallas. Preferably RV friendly. We cant get over 200 miles between fuel stops.
Thanks in advance for any tips.

I used to be a season ticket holder at TMS. I would consider keeping your original I35W route. Saturdays race starts at noon. If you could time it to come through any time early morning or after noon I think you will be fine. The Xfinity series does not have the same draw as Cup. Sunday's race starts at 2. If you come through way earlier than 2 or after 2 I think you will be fine. TMS does not have the same draw as it did when they first started running there. As for I35E? I would avoid that route any time.

We live in Denton and I agree with Roadrunner. Stay the. Purse on 35 W. That is always easier than 35E. There has been some construction around Ft Worth so be careful there.

There is also considerable on-going construction on I-35E. Some people headed north take US 281 up to Wichita Falls and then I-44 to OKC. But from Waco you would have to go west quite a ways to reach 281. As noted above, I would take I-35W and plan to go thru Ft Worth well before race time. An overnight stop just south of Ft Worth would make that easy.

Think we’ll try to sneak through while the race is on. Thanks for the input.
