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

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I get the feeling my generation may have missed the golden age of that kind of racing; going to support our local dirt tracks and try some road racing coming up to see how that shakes out.
  2. Any update on the racing facility in n NW San Antonio

    No offense taken at all; I’ve learned you’re typically pretty much spot on with your assessments. The foundation of these projects is difficult; investors say “see what kind of support is out there and we can make educated plans from there” but as soon as you reach out the person who is doing the reaching is on the hook so to speak. As you well know there’s a ton of time to invest in these projects and it’s easy to get drawn into spending a almost uncountable hours on them. My oldest is starting in a kart this year I picked up a TAG kart for myself so my days of having time to chase after asphalt circle track dreams is limited...I’m going to focus on using what we have an enjoying the packed dirt tracks.

    Misunderstanding, Reb wasn't referring to me or the ACM project...Apparently Shelma from that Scam had a "James"... Whoops! Thanks.
  4. Any update on the racing facility in n NW San Antonio

    The previous owner of ACM had every intent, the will and the money to back up the projects he was working on before he passed.

    The owner of the property passed, the track was sold and all the time and effort many people spent on multiple projects out there went away.
  6. Wouldn’t it be great if the asphalt crowd could get their _ _ _ _ together and put on racing in Texas like the dirt guys do here or like the asphalt guys do in other parts of the country? Alaska can support a full time asphalt race track and TX can’t? This is pathetic.

    🤣😂🤣😂 You didn’t just drink the cool aid you dunked your whole head in it and let it soak in, yea? Here, I have something for you. https://www.change.org/p/the-supreme-court-of-the-united-states-recount-or-revote-the-entire-2020-presidential-election?utm_content=cl_sharecopy_25665851_en-US%3A0&recruiter=1002340587&recruited_by_id=3b083b20-d05a-11e9-9559-8307566812cd&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=psf_combo_share_abi&utm_term=psf_combo_share_initial
  8. "Run what Ya Brung" to a new level

    I suspect roughly this conversation is had more than once by more than one group of people every day.
  9. "Run what Ya Brung" to a new level

    There are a TON of those cars out there; from old SAS charger style cars to THR/SAS style Latemodels and everything in-between. The only reference point needed would be the CTS Street Stocks; you had everything from limited latemodels to Chargers to Outlaw Superstocks running the same class and running up front due to the way the rules where staggered. I know the Outlaw Super Stock is popular in the South East and that allows Houston racers to run in Florida/Alabama but in South/Central TX the cars sitting in garages on jack stands are all stock stub, steel bodied cars with the occasional NASCAR Latemodel Stock. I did the research in '18 and at the time there where dozens of those cars in the Central, South and Coastal Bend areas of TX...something like the Brackets at HMP could draw some of those cars off the jackstands just like it has in WI/IL.
  10. "Run what Ya Brung" to a new level

    I think if it was based around the right kind of cars it would do spectacularly; see Reb’s comment about the Lonestar 600. Brad Dixon didn’t put that race together by accident; he’s know for years it would work, got the chance and he’s been proven 100% correct. Just because a guy can’t afford a cutting edge chassis doesn’t mean he wants to run a slower car; these kind of races make room for those guys. Old tech asphalt/dirt cars are abundant here as are stock chassis, steel body dirt cars. Hell...IF ONE ASPHALT TRACK WOULD TRY AND RUN THAT KIND OF CAR IT WOULD WORK...
  11. "Run what Ya Brung" to a new level

    I love watching short track racing from all over the country and the Hudson event along with Kalamazoo's call of the wild are great but Rockford's Bahama Brackets are the highlight of the season as far as I'm concerned. Think run what you brung bracket racing but on a circle track with dozens of cars and with classifications for EVERYTHING. 2020 Bahama Brackets Highlights
  12. Dibenendetto at Talladega

    What Dibenendetto doesn't bring to the table is family money, without it rides in NASCAR are becoming harder to find. In less then a dozen years NASCAR will look just like F1; a bunch of rich kids.
