  1. Vinyl Wrap Companies

    Looking for a new vinyl wrap company to do the wrap for our mini sprint. We have been using Five 1 Seven but we cant seem to get a response from them so its time for a change. We have someone to install the wrap just need the design done. Who do you recommend?
  2. 2019 Racecars

    Its that time of the year again lets see those rides that are coming together for the new year and where you plan to race. This is our ride for the 2019 race season. 2018 Triple X 600 Mini Sprint with a Hyper Race Engines Stock Suzuki 600cc. We will run with the PowerI Lone Star 600 Series and the NOW 600 Series.
  3. James did provide an update on the circle track on San Antonio Racers Reunion Facebook Page. Maybe he can push that update over to here.
  4. 2019 Nascar

    For the record I wasn't hating on NASCAR. I am just saying I don't see the value in having the NASCAR Sanction anymore. In years past it was a big thing to hear about the Dodge NASCAR Weekly Racing program and their champions. Now you don't hardly hear anything about it anymore. I do think with the dragstrip and the circle track together there is room for cross promotion and split sponsorships.
  5. 2019 Nascar

    I was wondering how many tracks are still "NASCAR Home Tracks" so here is the breakdown: 86 Nascar Home Tracks Via their Nascar Home Tracks Page 26 In different countries: Canada: 12 Mexico: 8 Europe: 6 60 in USA 6 Tracks are not really home tracks: Bristol, Dover, Iowa, New Hampshire, Sonoma, Watkins Glen which we all know do not run weekly race programs. Nick brought up a lot of good info about the NASCAR Sanction which he has stated many times on this website as yes you get the NASCAR name its not worth all the headaches that go along with it. Yes you get a shot at the $30,000 paycheck at the end but you have to ask : A. Will racers run 18 to 20 weekends a year to be able to compete with the tracks on the East Coast. These are the number of races you would have to run to break into top 10 at Division 4. When Brandon and them won the NASCAR championship they could run that many weeks a year but things have changed since then. Most of those tracks that ran that many races were Dirt tracks there was some Asphalt tracks but that was ones that have a rich history of racing (Bowman Grey, Hickory, Madison, La Crosse, South Boston). B. Will the promoters even want to be NASCAR Sanctioned? You have to remember Houston was then they dropped it. I think we need to focus on getting the tracks built, and run with common rules of Houston, Pensacola, Mobile where racers can come in and run and not have to change everything under the sun. That was a big problem when SAS was open under the Nascar Sanction their rules were completely different from Thunderhill, Corpus, and Houston. During Texas Asphalt Racing hey days you have 4 asphalt tracks running and all 4 were running different rules. Towards the end the tracks did come together and have common rules and had great purses. But you had some racers that would only run Houston and not run THR even though rules were the same. So yes your forward thinking is good and you have a bright outlook with big money races but first lets get the tracks actually up and running. Give them a year or two to get the kinks worked out before they start throwing these big races. Smiley Sitton told me and a few others one time that for a racetrack to be really successful and run smooth the track needs to go through about 3 promoters before things really smooth out. If you look back at a lot of the local tracks you will see that trend.
  6. I know its been already stated but any asphalt track that is built is better than what you have now, 1 active track, 1 track being used as a storage facility, 1 track being wasted in the weeds, and 1 track completely gone. So let these people build a track that they want to build, as it was stated they only have room to put in a 1/4 mile track. So if you want a 3/8 mile track build your own or just be happy there will possibly be 2 running asphalt tracks in the state of Texas.

  8. Nascar "Ro-val" race at Charlotte

    What parts I got to watch it was a pretty good race. Jimmie gets the bone head move of the day award. I know he wanted to win and break his winless streak but he wasn't thinking big picture on that move. Whats going to really look bad is if he goes out the next couple of races and wins then he knows he really shot himself in the foot for an 8th championship. They are locked in until 2020 I believe is when the schedule can be opened up and changed, but that is also when the TV Contracts are up for change as well.

  10. More Bad News from the Sprint Car World

    Here is a picture that has been floating around the last week or so. This is a foam block the car is on top of NOT a concrete wall. But it does show you the danger. One reason we always went with a wedge chassis with the halo is it gives you that extra height where the driver is for that just in case moment. What amazes me is there is teams in ASCS and WoO who will order cars without the extra piping because of weight. Remember the wedge chassis, halo, and side bars are all currently add-ons. There is other things the big boys do safety wise that just dumbfound me. We are required to run a rock screen and with them it is recommended and there is drivers out there that wont run one.

    If you notice on our Triple X that we just sold we always went with the wedge chassis and had Triple X install the halo on top and the bars on the driver side.

    Just an FYI the newly formed sprint car council recently came out with new rules that cover the cage tops and side bars that will be mandatory on all cars.

    Just asking where there many yellows the other night. Between flipping back and forth seemed like they were doing a lot of green flag stops.
