  2. If stock cars had evolved would we be better off?

    Sorry guys but the biggest reason why it won't work is because all of these cars are sheetmetal. None of them have frames on any strength anymore. Yes, you can roadrace them because they don't condone contact and contact is inherent to circle track. IMHO, you want to fix Sat night racing, body the cars to appear modern. I can't think of anyone young or old, that doesn't prefer the sound of a V8 over anything else. Second, each class needs its own look. Hate to say it but when Super Stocks look like late models, it's confusing to the uneducated. Cost containment is the issue, tires are too high, shocks are insane and crate motors are always under question, pit passes are tough while payouts haven't kept up with rising costs of racing. I remember the first time seeing a late model and thought it was hideous. After the race, I thought it was the sexiest thing on wheels ever made!!! Just .02, cause that's all I have
  3. TSTRS ( Now: Gulf Coast Racing Series) has announced that HMP oval track Nascar Classes & Mobile I/S will be Changing The Spec Race Tires to the American Racer Asphalt Race Tires ( Tread type *G - AR970) in a left or a right sides for Both Tracks in 2021. These tires will available from Day Motorsports & and will be Vended & available at the tracks on Race Dates. Hope info helps....
  4. So Nick, Has HiTech approached you yet about changing his screen name back to Oldtimer? People who have to fight with the mirror and use a hammer have no business with a screen name of HiTech anyway LOL
  5. I recall attending races in 1970 at the local track and seeing 1955-1957 Fords and Chevys race in Sportsman and Late Models but vividly remember in 1972 there were just a few 55-57's around and everyone was running 1965-1967 Chevelle's and maybe a couple of 65-66 Fords. . By 1975 they were running 1969 Chevelle's in Late Models and 65-67 Nova's in sportsman....By 1979 all the 55-57's were gone and now they are running 1969-1972 Chevelle's with a smathering of 1970-72 Ford Torino's . There were no Five Star Bodies back then....you hit the junkyard or had a sheetmetal worker fabricate them. IMO as well, I agree with the statement above. Show me a good close race, passing on the outside, and great car counts....that's my priorities as a fan now.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Sorry, But the Local race track in Houston is No Longer using these race tires. They have decided to go with an other Race Tire & Manufacture all together !!!! This Item is no Longer Available !!!! Thanks, LSSZ
  8. Got to give Ms. Knowles and her staff a tip of the hat and a standing O for all she has done and continues to do keeping asphalt racing alive in this area. The most telling comment in this piece is having to travel 12 hours to the next asphalt track. Hopefully HMP will continue to grow.
  9. Hi Tech I heard some of the mid packers on back in Factory Stock are going to E-Mod. Gotta feeling that may become a trend until they jack with the E-Mod rules and make it more expensive.

Austin Wayne Self Pre-Race Quotes on Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway: “I always enjoy competing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I’ve had several good performances there even if we don’t necessarily have the finishes to show for that. We’re bringing the truck that we ran in the top-10 with last fall at Texas Motor Speedway and Ryan did a great job with the setup and working on the truck throughout the race. I’m excited to see what we can do with this truck on Friday night.” On Daytona (Fla.) international Speedway RC Finish: “Man, what an up and down night for our AM Racing team. I’m really proud of everything that we overcame. Everyone did a great job and we had a fast truck and even finished fourth in Stage 2. Near the end of the race, it became very hectic and I got booted twice which forced us to come from the back of the field both times. We managed to go from 29th to 15th in that final sprint to the finish. Even though it wasn’t a top-10, I think we showed everyone we have a lot of speed in our trucks and that we’re going to be contenders throughout the year. I’m looking forward to Las Vegas.” On 2021 Season After Two Races: “I’m really proud of my AM Racing team. I know it has only been two races so far in 2021, but I think we have shown that we have it what it takes to be contenders this season. We showed speed in our trucks at Daytona and on the Road Course of Daytona. It’s going to be important to continue to showcase our ability this weekend at Las Vegas. I would love to leave Las Vegas on Friday night with a top-10 finish and a positive outlook to Atlanta Motor Speedway in a few weeks.” Race Information: The Bucked Up 200 (134 laps | 201 miles) is the third of 22 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races on the 2021 schedule.

  16. if you had to look at this mug in the mirror each morning and having to fight and threaten the mirror with a hammer to turn back around facing you, you have to have a sense of humor .
  17. i hope they can keep on running .. one racetrack i think would still be here had it not been a lawsuit .. others i would say mismanaged in some points .. i know one track had issue with favortism and if you dont like it leave attitude or our way or the highway ..well the highway racers took .. .dirt at the time was cheaper then .not anymore that is heading the same direction up. just the price of a good factory stock is way more than should be spent .but if you want to compete you have to spend the big bucks ,, use to able to build two cars for the price of one now not that long ago either .. ..one reason my son has a car in my garrage not far from being ready but the cost has taken some pep away even if the car was ready .. .so save the moeny for something else .will his car make it out this year maybe . .so i hope and wish houston the best ...if they do set up a factory stock race we will be there a whole bunch will show up .. dirt racing is fun but i would rather be running that hot and hard on tires pavement .. that is still in my blood ..

  19. I would sneak out of work in Corpus at 5:30 instead of 6:00 so I could get to SAS in time. Did that for years. Saw a ton of great races and great drivers at that track.When I saw this post I didn't want to look but I'm glad I did as the memories of SAS came through my mind at warp speed.Sure glad I got to experience San Antonio Speedway !
  20. If stock cars had evolved would we be better off?

    I agree the cars need to be up graded. a class for V8 Mustangs and Camaros from the 80's to present would be good. the fans could relate better and here the V8s. They road race the the unibodies so why not circle track. Just an idea from an old guy.

  23. Any update on the racing facility in n NW San Antonio

    All it takes is a little ingenuity, money and risking putting your name of something.....There's no need to spend millions on a facility....This guy in kerrpatch came up with a plan, covid canceled it last spring, then the FAA failed to respond in a timely manner for the rescheduled fall date.....The guy kept on it and kept pressing....In two weeks it will finally happen.....All it took was his persistence and a rarely used airport runway.
