  6. please clarify fuel please

    Just want a ruling on it from the track so we all know if its legal or not legal. Not concerned about the power issue from only changing the fuel to E85. Power comes from the many other changes that can be made in tandem with e85 or thats if they are being honest an actually running E85 instead of lying and running straight up alcohol . Just a gray area I dont want to run against at big events if we cant run it locally.
  7. please clarify fuel please

    I dont mind using it or not, just dont want to run against it if I dont have to. Hope an answer can come soon.
  8. please clarify fuel please

    Please give us a yea or nay on E85 pump gas. Is it legal or not to run in pure stock. Last year cars from out of town on big races came in and ran it at some of the bigger south texas races When questioned about it, the rules say pump gas and thats how they have gotten around a grey area. Before locals start exposing this can we get a final ruling so its behind us. Thanks guys.
  9. restarting the series next year (2018)?

    Not interested in restarting it at this time guys.
  10. Want to thank Hobbs and Whitaker for putting together an awesome show. Stacy for putting a big effort into a near perfect track. The best I have seen here for a 3 day show as it was consistant from one night to the next. Want to thank my sponsors and family for the fun time we had all 3 days. Special thanks to the Downeys for pulling the car out of the weeds and allowing us to race it. Also want to give a thumbs up to the techmen who did their job. I cant speak for the 41 pure stock but for us we respect the dq we received for a throttle shaft that didnt meet the specs. We struggled with this carb both friday and saturday. We came close to swapping it out for one that wouldnt leak everywhere and run maybe alittle better but at the last moment we were able to control the fuel leak coming out of it so we ran with it. Turned out to be the wrong decision. Regardless we had an awesome fun weekend and congrads to James Parks for the win!
  11. Sutherland Springs - Kris Workman

  12. Sutherland Springs - Kris Workman

    I was hoping yesterday was only a dream but it wasnt. Kris Workman not only a good friend but an I37 regular racer in the pure stock class along with being an official for South Texas Promotions was one of the many caught in harms way. Both Sheryl and myself have grown to love this guy through helping us at STP. Kris was struck twice, his sister in law was also each struck with a bullet. His sister in law is ok from my understanding. However Kris has it much worst. Yesterday he went through some surgeries to resection his small intestines and stop the bleeding. He has been placed into an induced coma and will have to have spinal surgery this week for bullet #2. So much stuff is still hard to come by or very vague. Kris is heavily involved with his church and you couldnt meet a nicer guy. Please keep him in your prayers as this week will set the path for the rest of his life as everyone else that was involved.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
