  1. Tecate Championship Night 8

    I have not seen a truck race sense kyle closed ...those drivers get those trucks adjusted for dirt there is going to be some good close racing .. glad the track gave them a place to play ..i finally took a good watch on the bombers ..car count is growing .. that 13 years old is going to school and learning the right way take his time and take care of that car .thought he was going to hit the wall hard but a good save for someone so young .i see a young man with talent who will be a force before the year is out . that car is a tad bit Larger than his go CarT ….

    WE LIVE under the freedom these men and many others fought for .yet how many forget or never learned in school .just how much our men and women gave UP AND paid a price for you .

  5. d.day

    I knew nick was that old ..just a sad time when our vets our lost men and women mean nothing to so many ..I was not on the baby killers band wagon … the biggest let down our fighting men ever had coming home .I have the upmost respect and thanks for my freedom our men and women afford this country .it wasn't cheap .

    I know just funning you ..its sad the track with its history isnt running ..I grew up just down the road from cc and could hear the races every Saturday night they ran .. listening to those jalopies in the late 50s before mom took us out to cc in 61 ..cc was part of my growing up and I never thought it would be shut down this long .the memories are endless . pulling wheelies on bikes with walter long before I was old enough to race . touching those hot tires after the main feature was over the cars would park on the track ..watching mustang daredevils . and other special shows at the track .figure 8 racing . motorcycle racing .mud truck racing .you name it cc had it .and seeing and meeting new friends ...I know we all hope the track can find its way back someday ...my avatar pic is a feature I won with a blown motor .

    what my car sliding . you will get over it I am sure …when you dont run a track the right way this happens not like anyone didnt try . you cant have favorites .you cant be friends with everyone you have to be fair . if you are a racer taking over a track you have to forget the past driving and become a promoter .. a lot of things went wrong .and some of it was us the car owners .but it starts at the top ..

    Rodney .. dead . like a junk yard .drove by there Saturday ..wont be anything racing out there for years to come if not ever again . I am sure the rabbits rats and lizards are having a race every once in a while . like to turn a lap with them . ..the sound of cement trucks and tractors across the road is about all you hear now except the sound of my car 1989 on its roof sliding all the way from turn two to turn three still echo's through the gap under the flag stand .ghostly

  10. TIDA Racing

    yes sir I dont get on facebook .
  11. Thanks arob WE went there to practice and try A few things .. wasn't looking for that good of a run .just a good showing on adjustments . still learning this new car and trying to get it where the driver likes it .then we will go race ..found myself the first time this year wanting him to fight to pass a fast car … he did ...I know the hamburgers helped with the left side weight .lol .but really it wasn't as much the adjustment I made mainly small one the really helped the car ..that credit goes to jessie .. he slowed down put less wheel in the turns and let the car settle down ..that is a really good track t get a driver to slow down go faster ...he made the car better and makes my life easier .we will run the same set up this weekend and see if the car and driver are becoming one .the balance is in the middle right where the seat is .the driver .
  12. I hardly eat anything where we race .I just eat before I get there . sad but the hamburgers is what I eat and the wraps are not that good .plus I hate waiting in line for chips to go to another line just to order .and wait again .I want to go right up make my order pay for my order ..and be done with it also I may see something else to add to my meal and when I cant pay cash .I dont order it ..that can hurt your sells . I walk into what a burger knowing the menu and at time order something I didnt go for . …THE MEN cooking hamburgers in the pit at kyle I loved them and went back for another one ... ..me if I am running a track your money is right there in your concession . I dont mind paying for quality food .so I will eat at texana every time I attend ..and usually more than once I buy something ..
  13. TOLD my wife yesterday . finally a racetrack that does not use that cheap meat .. those hamburgers are big and for 550 .its worth every penny... ..that will make me miss the stop and eat heading up to the track knowing the food is good .. beside I like the track and the nice lighting in the pit area . clean track ….
  14. 4 Wide

    yes I will admit it kept me watching . fact first time in years I watched the indy race and nascar race and only took two short snoozes I didnt miss many laps ..so I saw maybe 1000 laps .total to tired from the day before racing at edna to do anything else ..
  15. 4 Wide

    LOL
  16. 4 Wide

    tCALM down frances …. this isnt the only track nascar runs four wide … it was a good race I suppose ... if they didnt have normal 100 mile lunch breaks it would have shown who the real winner would have been ..it still isnt racing when every one is racing three to four races in one .lets just make it to the next mandatory caution ... 600 miles is an endurance race . the best make it to the end .two tires splash of fuel and so forth .that' is part of racing gamble not as much anymore . .. for the money this helps nascar I suppose for the real racers it sort of boring ..in real racing the teams can be innovative and chose to buy most of their parts from different companies ...innovation at its best .even build their own parts not they are locked in where they are told this is who you buy your parts from .even the nuts and bolts have to be from the same companies . as for crying drivers least that is real .
  17. memorial day

    I just watched the last 10 minutes on fox news of some of our finest heros. …...even at my young age of 63 I still learn something in a different perspective .those men taught me to enjoy this memorial not in sadness .but in celebration of the freedom we at times take for granted .go out with the family or friends and bbq party hardy what ever you enjoy .but just take in memory just one vet you knew or find ones name who gave their life for you and honor them with thanks .. the Red white and Blue flag isnt just stars and stripes and looks good flying in the wind it isnt just to show we are America …. its much more then that .
  18. memorial day

    FUN VIDEO ..MY DAD served on a destroyer .his brother was on an carrier .he came home and found out two years earlier after spending a week on shore with his brother was killed ..that was all he mentioned ever ,,he would not talk about the war and we never pushed him ..

    ADD .give the person who came up with the opening show a raise ……..wow they had flags as far as I could SEE ON every car in the honors … … the whole show to honor our vets was great . WHEN THEY PLAYED TAPS IT it started to get to me ...a week ago one of my best friends pasted away Zeke Martinez WHO SERVED 10 years in the navy .. and whos daughter has been in the service for twelve years and spent time in Iraq …. with out him I may not have met my wife in 1982 .I remember he said hey I think she likes you .I said ok .he said go after her or I will . I said you dont have a chance .and I proved it .he honored me when his son was born way back then ..GODFATHER .. we played guitars together every where we could plant out arces .he could sing I cant …. going to miss the guy he built person to person bridges along his whole life cause I sure didnt like him till we met ..then I loved him ..RIP MY FRIEND .GOD BLESS AND HONOR OUR MEN AND WOMEN TODAY AND PAST . they are the true HERO.S
  21. Official Race Results - May 25

    like 80 pounds lite I think ...we checked the out of town rules and made sure our car had the fuel to put her over ..3200 at the end just in case .not that we thought we would finish near the front .still working bugs out .but we found something .jesse finished 5th on the track starting 12 th . over all 4th ..car looked to be the fastest through the middle but five cars were right in the way lol... we had fun practicing this is a fun racetrack nice track we enjoy coming to texana .a few screws to turn on the car and then go racing ….I know jesse made someone mad on the last lap but leave the door open and both cars side by side going into the turn . outside car cant turn down and then kick another mans car for the body to body contact after words ..racing just racing ….anyway we look forward to coming back .
  22. HANG them by the ears up on the power wires and whip em with a wet rope … I dont know how long it takes but if they are working on one it wont be aslong as never .
