  1. Need prayers for our fledgling ministry!

    I live in Elkhart, Texas. My church is between Elkhart and Palestine. We have been trying to get a car together to go race around east and north Texas. I haven't asked my church for any help, other than to get some of my church brothers and sisters to join in with us. I apparently am not in a church full of race fans, so it is mostly my immediate family and a very small group of friends that are actively involved so far. All of the funds that have gone into the car or anything else so far have come from my own pocket. We are a single income family, so the pockets are very shallow. There are quite a few members in our facebook group, which is wonderful, but most are too far away to help other than with their prayers. I know God will supply our needs, as He always has, but the timing just frustrates me sometimes. I know this is one of the ways that God wants me to spread His influence and message, but I'm beginning to think that I'm going about it wrong or something. Doubts and confusion come from satan, but I can't figure out what is in my life that is keeping me from completing God's will in my life. I am in prayer daily about this, but may be to close to the situation to be objective. Please pray for me and our little group. We are really targeting running this spring, but a money miracle is needed to make it possible. Thanks Nick.
  2. Please be in prayer for our ministry. We have been fighting off satan's attacks now for more than a year. We are a small ministry, and it has been incredibly discouraging and slow growing. God Created Dirt Ministries. Please pray for encouragement, and the improvement of our financial situation. ‚Äč
  3. Need a prayer or two? Maybe three?

    Thanks for the info.

    Ok. Thanks. We may just do that.

    Thank you sir. I thought it was a little bit further out, but that looks about right.
  7. I have been looking on google earth for the imprint of the track. Working from very old memories. Can anyone give me landmarks or some kind of exact location? Also looking for a sign of the track in Huntsville and Mt. Selman.

    Where was the track in Huntsville located?

    Really is sad. I had no idea it was That bad. Sorry to be such a whiner. It was just one of the few good memories I have of my dad, and I guess I have been too wrapped up in trying to kind of hand it down to my boy.

    Thanks y'all. I guess there is no way. My son was just born too late to share that memory. Sad.

    I grew up in Navasota, and spent all my Saturday nights at Moody Clary speedway, my dad parked cars there, and was at every stock car race at TWS until 1980. I guess I had a good childhood then, but now all of those places are going or gone.

    It just doesn't make sense to me how a giant concrete pad could be hazardous. I did even ask if we could go escorted by a track employee. Honestly, I really wanted to see that view one last time again for myself as much as I wanted my son to experience it.

  14. I didn't think it an unreasonable request to allow me to walk my 10 year old son up that long ramp to the top of the grandstands. I just wanted him to be overcome by that same sense of awe that I had when my dad took me there for the first time, right after the track first opened. That sense of awe that comes from seeing a place of that magnitude for the first time. A simple request. I offered to pay admission, just to spend a few minutes with my son up there.To share that special moment with him before the track succumbs to the progress of the city and the decay caused by lack of interest. They refused, without giving any reason. The persons I spoke with at the track, were, to my mind, very unreasonable, uncaring , and uncompassionate. If I were a wealthy man, I would buy that piece of my history and find a way to re-build, and revive that awesome giant, and bring it back even beyond it's former glory. The people I spoke to however, would not be working there. I love you Texas World Speedway!
