- The Red River Triumph Club of the Dallas/Fort Worth area was organized in 1982 for Triumph owners and enthusiasts in the northern central Texas area. Membership is open to all who appreciate automobiles bearing the Triumph name. Our goal is to preserve, restore, educate about, and enjoy the Triumph marque of cars. Our membership is presently over 100 families. In addition to our monthly meetings, the club sponsors events such as rallies, technical seminars, swap meets, and road tours. Please continue reading for upcoming events and informational links pertaining to Triumph.
- Monthly meetings are held at Bone Daddy’s House of Smoke in Grapevine. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month except for January. Dinner is at 6:30 pm, if you care to eat, and the meeting starts at 7:30. We hope to see you there! (See the Events Calendar for more details)

The Red River Triumph Club’s November “lunch” drive is the Annual Turkey Trot Rally. The rally will be on Saturday the 23rd of November starting with the first car out about 10:30am. There will be a driver’s meeting at 10:15am.
Like all Gimmick Rallies, this will be like a scavenger hunt in your car. You’ll be given driving directions and between each turn will be questions to answer. The answers will be seen from the road on either side of the car but visible without having to turn around. The team with the most correct answers will win. We will have prizes for the top three finishers.
The rally route will wander through the back roads south of Dallas-Fort Worth before finishing at our ranch in Grandview, TX. At the finish, we plan a “cook-out” lunch. The Pilcher’s will be frying a couple of turkeys (if you want one fried, let me know and bring it to the start), the club will provide soft drinks, for all other drinks, bring what you’d like. Entrants are encouraged to bring a covered dish, salad fixings, bread or dessert. There will be a vehicle to carry the food from the start point out to the finish while you are driving the rally.
Location – Mansfield High School, 3001 E. Broad Street, Mansfield, TX 76063.
Time – Driver’s meeting at 10:15am and first car out at 10:30am.
Location – Triple D Ranch, 7632 County Road 308, Grandview, TX 76050.
Time – Expect last car in about 1:30pm. Lunch will be about 2pm.
Even if you don’t do the rally, come down for the eats, tour of the property and feeding the animals (dogs, chickens, goats and donkeys. And for those outdoorsy people you can even get a line wet in our fishing pond (no license required on private property).
