  1. The lead was unrelated on other track/drivers posts. From what I've read, it was a piece of concrete that hit GW. From what I've seen with the Egberts, I don't think he was wearing an inferior helmet either so I'm sure it was something that was very heavy and solid that hit him. Unfortunate event but I'm glad he's relatively ok after it, could have been much worse. Knowing how I37 is operated, I'm sure the track and walls will be looked at this week to avoid this from happening again and hopefully drivers are continuing to secure their lead or anything else that could be a hazard too. Hopefully he continues to heal and will be back soon, great guy to watch race.
  2. That was nice of Tommy to rebuild the guy's fence. What a freak thing to happen with the tie downs. Hope GW gets better. Been seeing debates online about lead but a piece of concrete flying up, scary to think of. Great job Reb, thanks for making us feel like we were there.
  3. I-37 Speedway updates 3/16/19

    Glad to see Joe Aramendia back out there after his wreck last weekend.
  4. Glad to hear Drew, good luck.
  5. Night 3 Jerry Whiteaker Memorial

    Oh wow, I'm sorry that happened to you guys. I've heard stories in years past of steering wheels and loose stuff walking off but taking bolts off? That's pretty crappy. Most of the people I've met in racing are more than willing to help a fellow racer out, not the other way around. Hopefully you guys can get that car dialed in and your equipment stays safe.
  6. Just checked the official results and it appears some changes as now Brian Rye and David Lege Jr have been awarded 4th and 5th respectively last night. So here are the eight drivers locked into tonight's A Main for $8900: Thursday's Qualifyers were 21 Chris Brown, 112 Jason Ingalls, 87 Lawrence Mikulencak, and 89C JJ Jennings. Friday's Qualifyer's were 9 Shane Hebert, A1 Phil Dixon, 90 Dustin Butcher, and 184 Brian Rye. If they start straight up, the first four rows will look like: 21 9 112 A1 87 90 89C 184 Two of the most prolific chassis builders in Modified racing (IRP and Express), two longtime hot shoes, a car that no matter who drives it is up front, a couple of Crate powered machines proving they can run with the open style motors, one of the best shock builders, and a car that never ages and can win on any night, which is For Sale in any stage that is well maintained and very fast in South Texas. Tonight should be a blast and I know there are 40+ other of the best Sport Mod drivers in our region that would love to challenge these top 8. Not to mention, the Pure Stocks who are racing for over double the money they win on any given night ($700) which has seemed like an All Star Race of the 3 South Texas tracks with a few others thrown in the mix. James Parks in his 33JP machine goes for the weekend sweep. Daniel Preston gave it everything he had last night before he had to pull off with front suspension problems, so it won't be a walk in the Park so to speak. Should be a great night but remember to come early as race time is set at 6:30 this evening. Come on out and pack the stands and watch some of the best Sport Mod and Pure Stock drivers in the South go for big money and big pride to wrap up the inaugural Jerry Whiteaker Memorial race.
  7. Night 3 Jerry Whiteaker Memorial

    Honestly, I've only been disappointed in one track I've been to in the past few years and it was a very iffy night to begin with so maybe it's better now. Won't say which track it was but I will speak very highly of STS, I37, and TRP as those are the ones I visit the most. All 3 do a great job but this weekend was well done by everyone at STS.
  8. Night 3 Jerry Whiteaker Memorial

    Unfortunately had to work Thursday night but it was a good weekend. STS did a great job on keeping the show moving along. Think Thursday and Friday were done by 11 and Saturday was done around midnight. Ran a lot of laps in short times, didn't seem to be lineup delays, intermissions were a good amount of time, tow truck drivers were on it when needed, safety crew per usual were very prompt and the drivers seemed like they were ready to go at all times too. I also want to thank people who you don't usually hear too much praise for and that's the concession crew. Everytime I went down there, they kept it moving too.
