  1. full moon

    funny I figured you were in uniform then .and was hoping you or someone spoke up about being somewhere else ….just past your sons apartment where the bridge crosses oso ..SAT A radio transmission station that was a part of Apollo missions .
  2. South Texas Speedway

    you got me thinking now .shoot I wont sleep ...willy shoemaker use to race a hornet back the 50s he loved red and white cars ….dont know if I am close . but I do know later in years at his house he talked about racing a hornet .cant recall if he said what colors it was .I know he was the type of person to do something like that the hearts .we had many talks about the old days .his old days I wasn't that old then .lol..
  3. South Texas Speedway

    I DONT KNOW if its the same car but id bet on it . I saw it a few times at the old Texaco at Garfield and leopard .we lived just across from snapkas on leopard back then .as a kid I would sit with my brothers outside in the yard or upstairs looking out across leopard watching my mom car hop … mom would never take us to the races but you sure could hear them .it wasn't till 1961 before dad took us out to cc speedway . … now that you brought this up and made me go that far back . ill ask my father inlaw . he use to sneak out to cc with his motor bike his dad didnt know he had ..maybe he will remember that car and possibly knew who owned it … sometimes old poeple remember little things like that .so ill give him a try .
  4. shout out

    Have to give the track a shout out ..when you can run four wide off turn two in purestocks and every one made it through that said something about the track being right on the money .the track surface was spot on .all through the night ..hope it wasn't just a lucky one time chance . but maybe not the crew has been good at it lately . a surface that can fool you if your car all of a sudden handled great .the 7 stuck like glue .the 8 m came on after adjustments in the feature .. the finish didnt show it after the rear end was moved to the left side .from a spinning car ..and a break system we didnt build broke on the 7 .no breaks ..those tires in turn three did a good job slowing the car down .

    must be a liberal .
  6. kids helmets

    brain bucket wont work for me .45 gallon drum. and I know many folks will come up why I need one that big ..hush
  7. kids helmets

    hey get your own bag . I THINK it would be nice to do that at all tracks .and all tracks need more of that
  8. kids helmets

    I AM not sure but I heard it has something like fema red cross one of those type deals . ..I went over didnt see a sign but did ask them briefly if they had one to fit my big head she laughed and said have a nice day ..lol …….. I said well I ride my mini bike around the pits slowly and dont have much squash to hurt when I fall anyway .. ...but yes it was a neat thing and those went fast .
  9. Open practice Friday at STS

    your a funny guy ..not really ..
  10. wow

    its is flat out hot ..racetracks need to change the start times . even if you have to shorten each race by 5 laps or so the get the races in ….or add a couple of more cars or so to each class to the cut down three heat races ..some wont like it but least the fans may .
  11. wow

    . COMMON SENSE most fans dont like to sit and watch racing passed 1030 or so many with kids ..in fact after that time they start leaving I watch better than most to fans leave one of the tracks before the last race of the night .one of the big classes with 16 plus cars … if your start time is right in the main heat .you wont have the fans in the stands .and knowing they will miss the heats because of the heat .they miss races either way so why show up ...they stay home .a 730 start hurts in the heat .an 8 clock start does give those fan a little more time .and funny it isnt much time .but a human mind works in weird ways ..like mine lol.7 o clock is when most fans start showing up the walk ins who are not part of a team are who you are looking for and walking into a racetrack half an hour later gives them that feeling we dont have to rush plus it will be cooler . knowing in reality it wont be .but its closer to night …………...kind of like that two for a dollar deal … one reason I hate daylight savings time .
  12. William Byron

    Funny thing about racing and life in general . what goes around comes around ...when I was driving I like to say I am like an elephant .elephants dont forget ……….Byron wont forget the lesson .in time that elephant moment will show up .he will grow some hair on his chest after the backside of his ears dry up .he is still young .

  24. Mr alex bowman

    shoot i was jumping up and down in my rocker .lol . i love when the little man wins ..he isnt racing a junk racecar . but it takes talent to win in it .all the best equipment does not prove a winner . the driver still has full control of that car . now if the 24 can get his win .then ill say its time for the 48 to get another win ..
  25. Well they finally did....not since 1960

    TOYOTA .. I been racing and going to the races from 1961 till now . if you have to cheat to win . then you dont know what your doing …. not one car have we raced ever failed tech ...not saying it cant happen . but we do work hard at staying with in the rules .it is much more rewarding when we beat a cheater or a money car .i had racers thinking i was cheating under the hood in 1990 .. so when the motor retired out the side of the block . i handed everyone who thought i was cheating the parts they thought were illegal . five tech man found nothing . never heard another complaint .i worked on my car to make it faster through the turns .and even today i still do the same thing with our other cars ..soon enough we will get this new car right where it needs to be .with legal parts .
