  1. The Chase Heats Up

    As a crew chief this year repairing the carnage starting in the back because of points has taken its toll on the wallet and the car. Wish we simply drew every week
  2. between me and you, you hit the nail on the head needing someone to step up and handle this. Thanks for helping and doing your part. The information was put out missing alot of details and all you did was copy it probably several others did the same.  Regardless at least people are seeing something regarding the track. You know the old saying bad pub is good pub.  I hope whitaker grabs this opportunity and goes for it cause right now he is behind the 8 ball big time and is waiting this season out before making any noise. Not sure if thats a good thing or not. Almost feels like he is using this last part of the season to determine if he is even interested in doing it.

      It's a thankless job for sure.  I've had more than my share of ventures into the administrative site of the stock car racing world and in each instance, the rewards were far outweighed by the negatives. I honestly pity anyone who gets into the operation of a race track since nearly all of them come in with nothing but the best intentions to "help racing," but end up making a ton on enemies, losing a bunch of money and end up hating the sport they once loved. 

      Such is life.

      Well put it this way for me. I ran the Texas Outlaw Bombers in Houston for 6 years, South Texas Street Stock Shootout for 5 years, leased several tracks - Beaumont, Cleveland 4 times, Goliad, STS 3 times all of them hosting big money events. I made money at everything I did racing related. Didnt get rich but I didnt lose money. Through it all my attitude is piss poor after going through it all with drivers. The biggest most well known drivers are by far the worst ones to deal with.

  3. no biggie i just know from experience people read what they want to read and then confusion comes about.
  4. Understand we have 4 races left but only 2 points races to the season plus most classes only have the next 2 races.
  5. I keep seeing final 4 races of the season? I only see Oct. 14th and Oct. 28th am I missing something?
  6. South Texas Shootout

    Please post details regarding practice and pricing so I can answer some friends in Houston.

  9. South Texas Speedway Chase

    7 sport mods because top 6 in points were in automatically and the other spot had perfect attendance and a win. He qualified based on the criteria set at the beginning of the year.
  10. restarting the series next year

    The current set of rules is what I wrote several years ago. Tracks in this area adopted them due to the series at the time was the only thing growing. They have pretty much stuck with them since except for Cotton Bowl Speedway adopting the NeSmith Rules.
  11. Demo Derby and Trailer Races set for 11/11/27 at I-37

  13. South Texas Shootout Information

    Is there information regarding this race on Nov. 16 - 18th? Rules, purse, event structure?
  14. restarting the series next year

    I was able to get 5 tracks on the same set of rules for 1 year after 4 years of working it. We had a great year during that period but it still was changed because of better ideas. Well those better ideas havent done much since then. I doubt the owners and promoters will ever be able to get back to that.
  15. restarting the series next year

    It would need a title sponsor first and foremost. In previous years we have had great sponsors but not nearly enough of them so a great deal of expense came from me personally. I am quite sure the class could get back to thriving at all tracks again if the series came back.
