The Tom Tellez Track at Carl Lewis International Complex, also known as simply Tom Tellez Track or Carl Lewis International Complex, is home to the Houston Cougars outdoor track & field teams. The facility is named after Tom Tellez and Carl Lewis, two of the most notable individuals to have been associated with the program.

The track features a European style design with wider curves and shorter straightaways than most U.S. tracks to enhance the speed of runners.[1]
