Maybe you should book a room at the Astrodome, just in case.

Not quite that bad, but it's a good 12-14 hours.

I-10 is the interstate from Houston to El Paso. The speed limit is 80MPH most of the distance; you can really make some time.

Houston ---El Paso -----Dallas in 14 hours= 99.29 mph average, even Chuck Norris would have problems pulling those speeds in Texas.
