  10. 2019 Nascar

    THE WORD NASCAR isnt nearly as big as it use to be ..nascar has its own problem self induced that is . folks just dont spend much time speaking about it anymore .at work that was all the customers would talk about if I mentioned racing or they knew we were racers , .when nick was part of sas back when it was Winston cup nascar was very popular .heck I got people to go watch races at sas by saying Winston cup track ..my wife still has the Winston cup jacket she received from sas track owner when nick worked there or ran it either way .. .. I dont dislike nascar it just got boring and predictable once they started car of tomorrow and gone down sense .cookie cutter tracks .shutting down short tracks that got them where they were at the time and then started running on Saturday nights . and they look nothing like a Saturday night show anymore .. even the cars dont impress me much …..I know tim is big time nascar and that is great .but dont tell us nascar is as great as it use to be or better ..nascar isnt any where near what it was .. and I agree with nick .if a track owner wont build a track cuz some one may not be happy .they should not build it .. a strong owner manager that knows how to over look the negative and moves past it . can succeed … he has to be able to promote .have a set of rules run by them .no favorite driver or team .all get treated the same ..regardless .my wife has scored for sas tida .cc speedway .and sts .. I raced back then and she did me no favors .our son races and she does him no favors .that is how a track must be run ..no favors ..

  13. 2019 Nascar

    If any potential track owner doesn't have the whole picture - haters included - they are going in with blinders on and will face reality pretty quickly. And if a potential track owner withdraws from his/her plans simply because they will face negativity along the way, then they probably shouldn't even consider being a track owner or promoter. It comes with the territory whether anyone wants to admit it or not. Here on LSSZ I do my best to keep the local scene free from most of the negativity, but have you been to Facebook lately? Or any number of other less-moderated racing sites where input is allowed from the public? Even Speed51 has it's fair share of boo-birds in spite of their almost constant monitoring of their on-line products. Secondly, I totally agree with you on Mr. Mandabach's ability to round up meaningful partnerships and sponsorships. He was the reason HMP did so very well during his management tenure there. Check out this interview I did with him a few years back. The fact is that you will note that John never mentioned NASCAR as one of the reasons why the track was successful during his time there.

  17. 2019 Nascar

    You can always find a reason to have objections to something. Hating on Nascar is counter productive to Mr Essie trying to get a track built. He may say, screw it, too many haters.......... Mr Mandabach used the Nascar sanctioning and worked to its finest. Huge sponsors came on board and even Championship bonuses from large Local Corp Sponsors. There is no reason that same model would not work right here in San Antonio. Corp sponsors are everywhere here. Whataburger, Toyota, Valero, USAA, HEB, Frost, Chesapeake Energy, Marathon Oil, EOG Resources, etc. Their names are all over sporting events. Time to cheat em up and go man,
  18. I have around 15-20 F45s left and need to make room for fresh supply coming in a few weeks. $25 each or buy all that's left for $22.50 each!! Pick up in Jewett or Buffalo only Tim is one of our LSSZ advertisers

  24. 2019 Nascar

    I was wondering how many tracks are still "NASCAR Home Tracks" so here is the breakdown: 86 Nascar Home Tracks Via their Nascar Home Tracks Page 26 In different countries: Canada: 12 Mexico: 8 Europe: 6 60 in USA 6 Tracks are not really home tracks: Bristol, Dover, Iowa, New Hampshire, Sonoma, Watkins Glen which we all know do not run weekly race programs. Nick brought up a lot of good info about the NASCAR Sanction which he has stated many times on this website as yes you get the NASCAR name its not worth all the headaches that go along with it. Yes you get a shot at the $30,000 paycheck at the end but you have to ask : A. Will racers run 18 to 20 weekends a year to be able to compete with the tracks on the East Coast. These are the number of races you would have to run to break into top 10 at Division 4. When Brandon and them won the NASCAR championship they could run that many weeks a year but things have changed since then. Most of those tracks that ran that many races were Dirt tracks there was some Asphalt tracks but that was ones that have a rich history of racing (Bowman Grey, Hickory, Madison, La Crosse, South Boston). B. Will the promoters even want to be NASCAR Sanctioned? You have to remember Houston was then they dropped it. I think we need to focus on getting the tracks built, and run with common rules of Houston, Pensacola, Mobile where racers can come in and run and not have to change everything under the sun. That was a big problem when SAS was open under the Nascar Sanction their rules were completely different from Thunderhill, Corpus, and Houston. During Texas Asphalt Racing hey days you have 4 asphalt tracks running and all 4 were running different rules. Towards the end the tracks did come together and have common rules and had great purses. But you had some racers that would only run Houston and not run THR even though rules were the same. So yes your forward thinking is good and you have a bright outlook with big money races but first lets get the tracks actually up and running. Give them a year or two to get the kinks worked out before they start throwing these big races. Smiley Sitton told me and a few others one time that for a racetrack to be really successful and run smooth the track needs to go through about 3 promoters before things really smooth out. If you look back at a lot of the local tracks you will see that trend.
  25. 2019 Rules Package

    When should we expect the 2019 rules package to come out? Is there any major changes we are expecting?

    Just for the record, Irwindale is still open and under new management until at least the end of 2019. The outdoor all-purpose mall and entertainment complex fell through. Last I heard the people managing it now have strong racing ties and want to buy it outright. .
