    Thanks Deb for all you do...
  2. Attention!

    Gotta love it when sarcasm gets a life of its own.......
  3. SAS racers SO FAR

    Chase, Just curious - what are all you truck guys (and SS too for that matter) going to do for rearend ratios since you've all been running 3/8 mile tracks? No trucks have run a 1/2 mile track since the ARTS days, so most teams probably don't have a trans/rearend ratio for SAS. I would imagine there will be some 3.42's needed... Should get ya a 5.19... Or go as far down as a 3.23 which ='s a 4.90... And they had run at the track after the ARTS days... Just don't think any ran with the current 350 crate & chip rule...

    If there is soo much interest about running the track again why does it seem there are so few people acually doing anything to go out and help the track. I was out there last Sat. Asked what I could do and went straight to work. The Alexanders were there helping along with one of the new operatiors. Other than one of the new operators there wasn't much else for help. I know of a few people that have offered donations of materials and equiptment and for that I think the new operators are greatful, but they need alot of help labor wise to get there. As of right now from what I was told they are there Sat. and Sun. from 8-5 and can use all the help they can get. Alot of it is going to be labor intensive mainly because of sitting there for 5 years. IF you really want this to happen instead of bitching and moaning on here about one thing or another, or worrying about if this car or that will fit in, come and help out... We all need to pitch in to bring the old girl back so we can race instead of putting the cart before the horse....
  5. Next Saturday at HMP

    I didn't know that being disappointed in someone equates to being overly sensitive... Guess I forgot to wear my skirt the 2 years I won my track championships... I also have done quite a bit at SAS starting as a fan at a young age and going there just about every year since the mid 80's. I have worked for the track and made hundreds of friends there but never got to race there. So yeah I have a little invested in seeing it reopen. I may have taken the joke the wrong way but there are plenty of folks that will never say a thing on here that feel the same way as I do about it. Its all about perception and point of view and if we all saw everything alike the world would be extremely boring.

    :lol:

    Im planning to go help then going to I37 to enjoy the races there.... Worked 80 hours this week at my real job n dont care if I work more to help get the job done...
  8. Next Saturday at HMP

    Disappointing as well...
  9. SAS website

    I am with the majority in that there should be some late model class... Personally I think the Pro Lates would be a good way to go... I think a few of the old SAS Latemodels were changed to TSRS cars or switched to Dirt LM's... And I don't believe there are many SuperLM's left in the state right now unless they are hidden in barns and garages... Add in the Modifieds Trucks Super Stocks and I think you can find a way to mix Thunders/Pure Stocks/Grandstocks with a little mixing of the rules... 1.Pro Latemodels 2.Modifieds 3.Trucks 4.Superstocks/Sportsman 5.Thunders/Pure Stocks/Grandstocks/Roadrunners... If this is a success then can maybe try to plan a SuperLatemodel,Pro Latemodel, Modified, Trucks, Superstock style event along the lines of Snowball... But that will be a long time coming...

    Most of the rules for the stock bodied cars are very similar to the asphalt tracks... You would be surprised at how many former asphalt cars call I37 home now... I think it will be good in the long run and if its just for special events I dont think we need to worry about who is losing cars to whom. There are ALOT of people who have an affinity for SAS. Im one of them. I grew up there along with alot of others. I have done quite a bit there and have tons of memories except for one. If it reopens I will do everything I can to get a car and live my dream. I loved the racing at the dirt track but SAS is a totally different animal.

    I wish them well as well... But I think we all know it will be a long arduous task to rebuild... Hope for the best...

    Here try this link... Federal Formoza FD1 Tire - Onlinetires.com $300 shipping included for a set shipped from California. Hope this helps...
  13. rough ride

    I believe that you can only get them NEW through INEX for the Legend Class. But there are quite a few of them used in Dallas and Houston. New I believe they I was told they were 140-160 but they get shaved to get different roll outs. I there there are a few guys one here like JC Umshied that might be able to tell you where you can get some of the tires. I believe it is a Federal tire or B.F. Goodrich...
  14. rough ride

    While I was at the track at Houston Motorsports Park there were a few there that were using used tires. You might put up a post in the classifieds and see if any Legend's cars have any pulloffs available. I know the team that I helped out there had a few that they gave to another driver and he may have extras. But he is in Houston...
  15. rough ride

    Can you use INEX 205/60R13's with a Dot stamp... That's the tires the legend guys use and I'm sure you got plenty of guys holding on to plenty. Might be something else to try if your used to those tire sizes...
  16. Still Alive and Well.....thank you

    Get well soon buddy... Im sure its going to be tough but hang in there...
  17. I believe the infractions in the stock cars were for using steel bushings in the control arms instead of stock rubber ones...
  18. Jay get well soon. Hopefully this will pass and things will get better. Just think of it as a second chance to see and do what life intended for you. Anyhow if I can help at all I will... Marc
  19. 2012 Lone Star Welding Limited Modified Championship

    Owen is this for the full season or specific dates? Just curious...
  20. single file restarts

    U need to quit using the flat side of tire... Flip it over and use the side that isn't flat... Sheesh...
  21. STOLEN TRAILER

    After talking to Mr. Cole last week they had not had any luck and pretty much consider it a loss... If I remember correctly they were told by the police the chances are slim and the most probable scenario is that it may have been cut up and sold for scrap steel as that seems to be the new MO by the thieves...
  22. NASCAR Licenses

    Im not going on a hypothetical... I helped 2 drivers this year Lynn Hardy in the trucks and Sonny Hunt in the Modifieds both guys are not high funded teams and had both help each other out along with another person who now owns and will drive a Pro Stock this year. Between the 2 of them last year you could only really call myself and the new Pro Stock Driver as crew for both cars and now his car makes 3. I guess what I am asking is do we need to find 2 more people to licence as crew for each weekend in each class or is there some other combination that works. Im not complaining just wanting to know how that works before the first race so that there is no surprises since it seems this is different than last year. Thanks...
  23. NASCAR Licenses

    I just want to get some clarification... Can you hold a crew licence and work with teams in two different classes? Also can the driver of a car in say Stockcars be considered a crew member on a Truck or Modified... Is that something that is only tracked during registration or is it tracked each race night? Just curious...
  24. Looking for some special pics

    Unfortunately I know I was not there that night... At least I am pretty sure...
  25. Snowball Derby 2011

    Uhm just curious but wasn't the normal Comp director taken away by ambulance on Thur night... I think they had someone else up in the tower for the race... Might explain what happened... Also they had problems all weekend with the scoring system as well...
