At the risk of sounding like a commercial,   I live near Texas World 
Speedway in College Station.  I started tracking in my Audi A4, 10 years 
ago with The Driver's Edge.   At that time it was the only non-(brand 
name)-enthusiast group.  The welcome all cars, with a great deal of 
instruction for the new drivers.  Their instructors come from a wide 
variety of cars, so they can match an instructor to your car.  I don't 
know your level of driving, but with experience with the group leads to 
being Soloed where you do not need an instructor with you.

The Drivers Edge uses 2 main tracks, TWS and the MotorSport Ranch south 
of Fort Worth.   They are bringing another track to their mix of tracks 
soon, near Denton.

On the flip side, they tend to have a LOT of people/cars at their 
events, and sometimes you will find that the track gets crowded.

TWS Motorsports Club is not as crowded,  there is a bit more total track 
time for the weekend. The level of instruction is similar.  The TWS 
track is in use most every weekend,  from the various DE events, to some 
SCCA and Vintage Racing, as well as some Motorcycle events (including 
Education events).

 Porsche and BMW also have open events, but I have never attended one of 
the club events.

I hope this has helped, and not sounding much like a commercial, since 
I'm just a user of both opportunities.
