  1. 2019 Nascar

    Thanks PA for the info on Irwindale, glad to see it's still up and going. I grew up going to CCS and SAS so it is sad to see the state of asphalt racing in Texas. Hopefully HMP can get some momentum but Houston is having problems on both surfaces as it appears BGS is gone, Willis is gone, 105 always has people complaining and criticizing, think HMP and GT are running Limited schedules but could be wrong. CCS is dark for a few years, THR completely gone, SAS all but gone. I do wish the new SA track well and hope they don't get discouraged and all these people that clamor for a track will actually go and support them. Don't think they need NASCAR but I see the argument of NASCAR being successful trickling down to help local tracks succeed, but in an indirect way. I know promoters have tried on asphalt, hosting big money races and get a 💩 turnout on both ends. Now with asphalt tracks gone or limited, how many of those cars/drivers are still around and willing to go asphalt or did they convert to dirt? Will new cars/drivers come out? Who will carry the local Saturday night track? I guarantee it won't be NASCAR.

    People go to Bowman Gray for races? If NASCAR was so great, why is SAS closed? Or Odessa in Missouri or Irwindale and IRP short track. Hell they even went dirt awhile. IRP thrived on USAC races as I remember Thursday Night Thunder fondly. I'm sure people involved with SAS will disagree with the "money was flowing" statement.

    Oh and congrats to all of the winners last night and the Track Champions and to all the STS staff for putting on a great season and committing to a true finish to the season.

    Just arriving to the track after a great football game and last few nights dealing with a family emergency. Per usual, no contact with track officials and results Unofficial and commentary on personal observations and nothing directed as an attack on any driver.

    Just glad everyone was ok, sorry to hear some cars are done. Nick, I'm glad I still have a place to do these, it was therapeutic for me after the last couple weeks. Thank you to those drivers and fans that sent well wishes. Anyhow, here is the link to the official results. http://www.southtxspeedway.com/profile/schedule/results.aspx?r=266589&rt=sch
