  11. Update from the Suberg Family

    Im praying for both you guys. Im sorry to hear about the infection but glad to hear that the organs are doing good. Please continue to keep us updated.
  12. CTS Rules

    Hear we go AGAIN! Why does every track want the whole pie? A few years back Nick had a great idea to bring all the tracks together with a common set of rules which would be good for everyone and the tracks didnt want to play that way. I really wish Nick would bring this up again to the very few tracks (Asphalt) we still have. Asphalt racing will never grow again unless ALL involved learn to play nice and together. HMP has done their home work and has invested a lot of time and money to make their program work. Its not perfect but it works. So why not go with their plan? I dont know how to build a race team or manage a race track but I can read and see what works and what doesnt. Wake up people. SAS, CTS and even CCS needs to swallow their pride or what ever and get with HMPs program. Im going back into hibernation again because I cant stand whats going on in racing today any longer. I use to be a paying fan. Not anymore. Not until something local has a show worth going to.

  15. SAS 2013

    I dont know the first thing about the difference in these cars. All I know is I want to see and hear these monsters go around SAS. There has to be something that can make these cars equal. There are lots of smart people out there that can come up with the answer Im sure. Use weight, intakes ,carbs, shocks, hell,give the slower cars some nitrous. Whatever it takes. There is a whole lot of $ tied up in those things. Its a shame they have to be parked. So PLEASE...someone come up with something.
  16. Most of us on here dont own or drive a race car but we love to watch them. I know that about 90% of you guys that have cars/trucks/whatever have a phone that has a camera. PLEASE take just a moment and take a pic or two of your ride as it is right now so we can see what your racing this year. We are your FANS and would love to see your rides as you are getting them ready. We dont care what stage they are in right now. We just want to see those machines. Just send them to me or even Nick and we will get them posted on here for you. Thanks PAPA (210)618-2345 aapapa@swbell.net P.S. You can send them to my phone or computer. Either way will work. Thanks again.
