  2. I-37 Speedway updates 9-12-20

    Front straight wrecks are the worst. Sad to hear about the destroyed cars but glad all seemed to be ok.
  3. I-37 Speedway updates 9-12-20

    Who was involved and why drivers upset?
  4. Wishing TSTRS a mega successful weekend! How many trucks entered?
  5. Championship Night Rescheduled Date

    It is now the 17th as of 9/9 on the STS website.
  6. 199 , yes, 199 car showed up at Texana Sunday night . When the skies looked threatening and major lightening nearby Milton Hope put the spell on the weather by telling the full house crowd not to look at the lightening then it would be like it never happened. Must had worked as the rest of the night stayed dry. Good job , Milton! Once again Factory Stocks led the way with right at 6 cars putting on quite a battle. Field was so strong and deep a lot of good cars didn't make the A. A tip of the cap to Chris Morris and crew driving in from Arizona to start in 14th working his way up to 2nd before being taken out with a few laps to go. Collin Hodges ran away with the Factory Stocks and fans witnessed the rarest of nights in that Daulton Faulkner had a terrible night though no fault of his own. And if there is a hotter Limited/ Modified driver in the area than Jared Mauoin I don't know who it is. After being released from the team he had been racing (and winning) for race morning Lawrence gave him his car to drive and Maupin dominated the field. Impressive! Tell you what. ALL race track promoters deserve a ton of credit but Mr. Owen Pittman is my vote for promoter of the year. 199 cars and done by around midnight pretty good. Show moved on as steady as it could. Concession worked their tail off handling the huge crowd very well. A special tip of the hat to them and all concession workers for that matter. Job well done Mr. Pittman and staff and especially to all the drivers and their race teams
  7. The late arriving Chris Morris made it 199.
  8. Unfortunately

    Darn , that Sandoval luck going home with you , eh? Maybe you should have a priest bless the car every race night. Gotta try something at this point. But when that win comes, and it will , I bet it will be the sweetest win of all. Hang in there guys.
  9. Unfortunately

    On to Texana.
  10. Well , poopy! STS rained out. But Edna still on and hopefully a bunch of STS cars will help the classes make the 24 car threshold. We know that Factory Stock will likely double that!
  11. Wow! Great weekend for the race fan! Saturday Sept 5 not only is it the points championship and regular season ender at South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi a lot of extra $$$ has been put up. $1100 to win Sportmod and $825 to win Factory Stock. This will make what has been the most exciting racing even better! Meanwhile Texana in Edna on Sunday the 6th has what could be $1300 to win Factory Stocks and $1000 to win to any class bringing 24 or more cars! Add to that $1 Miller Lite. Fans need to go to one or both of these great tracks to see what these well run facilities have to offer especially if you have never been to either one. Both Mr. Whiteaker at South Texas Speedway and Mr. Pittman at Texana do a great job to give the fan some of the best racing and a fun filled night. Check out their Facebook pages often because there may be more $$$ added in the next day or two.
  12. I-37 Speedway updates 8/29/20

    I remember Fox dropping the green when the Mercedes (or Beamer) pace car still on the front straight!
  13. Texas Trucks $10,000 to Win TSTRS/HMP

    True. But for the money they are paying I hope they get at least a 35 per class average car count. If the Truck deal is $300 or so to start it should pull at least 50.
  14. Texas Trucks $10,000 to Win TSTRS/HMP

    WOW! First this big money race then two weeks later another big money event! The folks at HMP are really delivering to their fans. Let's just hope the racers deliver on their end with big car counts.
  15. Hurricane Laura

    Ditto.
  16. AOC Auto Parts Championship Race Night 2

    Racing was awesome last night. Factory Stock has become the best class for great racing.
  17. Texas Trucks $10,000 to Win TSTRS/HMP

    Let's hope it does much better than the$5000 to win Late Model race. Here is hoping for at least 50 trucks.
  18. HMP Results.

    Pretty good car count . Good to see.
  19. I-37 speedway updates 8-1-20

    This fan had a great time. In the Modifieds the real race was for third. Six cars slicing and dicing every lap many times three wide and once 4 wide coming out of two. Some of the best racing I've seen came out of this group and pretty cleanly done. Hats off to that group. Same could be said for the Factory Stocks for 4rth with 5 cars or so battling out the same. Track was racy and multi grooved so hats off to the prep crew. I've made several trips to the three South Texas tracks and have not been disappointed once. South Texas race fans have got it good having these three(I-37 , Texana and South Texas Speedways) tracks to choose from. You know you will get you monies worth every time. So a big thank you to all the racers and promoters of these tracks. A standing O to the Factory Stock class as this year they are worth the price of admission on their own. can't wait to see what is to come!!!
  20. I-37 Speedway set for racing Aug 1

    Will be there. Haven't been in a while so looking forward to it.
  21. darn

    How about "Lightening Holt" . That's pretty bad , isn't it?
  22. darn

    Well , if you want to guarantee rain in Corpus Christi just schedule a sprint car race. Mr. Holt is the best weather guy around. He has been here long enough to have a nickname like Dead Wrong Dale and Guessy Vessey do. I wonder what it could be?
  23. I have found the best way to watch NASCAR is the first stage and the last 30 laps of the race. The exception being Daytona and Talladega. Now the Truck series holds my interest because it is good and the race is shorter. In a nutshell give me a good 1/4 to 3/8 mile dirt track any day. But I agree Indy Car can be more exciting than NASCAR.
  24. What an incredible night of racing ! 143 cars in the pits highlighted an announced 33 Sportmods and 55 . yes 55 , Factory Stocks. And they delivered. The story of the night has to be Dalton Faulkner. After being rained out in Louisiana he hauls to Edna having a blowout on the way. Misses his heat and starts 14th in the B-Main and not only qualifies but wins! Promoter Owen Pittman put up an extra $500 if Faulkner could come from the B and win the A Main. Starting 19th in a class field of Factory Stocks the crowds cheers him on as he carves through the field sometimes passing two cars at one time and using the yellows finishes 2nd by inches. It was quite a drive to witness. The atmosphere and racing that has been at Texana Raceway Park not only this event but this season so far has been exceptional. Large car counts and great racing every event. Hats off to whoever prepped the track for this event . It was fast and got racier as the night went on. Bravo to Mr. Pittman and his staff. A special tip of the hat to the concession people. They did a great job of handling one of the biggest crowds I have seen there. Thanks to every race team who put on a great show!
  25. WOW! WHAT A NIGHT!!!

    You are welcome. One thing is the Factory Stock A-Main results were not on there a few minutes ago just the starting line up.
