  1. Texas World Speedway

    Forgot to put that this is the 1979 Texas 400. D. Waltrip won it.
  2. Lets take a look back at a great era of NASCAR racing. Look at not only the cars, but the lack of pit equipment, the haulers, the open trailers, and the independent drivers. 1979 Texas 400, won by Darrel Waltrip. These pics courtesy of my late Father.
  3. birthday

    Happy Birthday Nick, although you probably wont remember it tomorrow...... Tom
  4. Thoughts and prayers to Freddy Fryar who passed this morning. And Dorothy McCall who passed last night
  5. Supermodifieds?

    Pavement Supers died out here in the 70’s, and they really only ran the Meyer Speedway in Houston, and various tracks in the southeast.
  6. Raymond passed away due to his health issues. We lost a huge supporter of short track racing.

  9. More Derby success; Augie Grill won the Friday Modified race in John’s house BMF Chassis.
  10. The Derby will run at 4PM tomorrow.
  11. All PRO Central sounds right for the Texas group.. I believe Leroy Farmer had a hand in promoting that. And, TIDA Late Models were not formed until 1988. The only race in 1988 in Corpus for the TIDA late models was won by Rick Rapp. The race results for the two National tour ALL PRO races at CC Speedway and also the race held the next day at San Antonio can be found in this link: ALL Pro results . Go down to the CC and SAS listings for the run downs. Races # 15,16, AND 17. Some of my narrative also came from a 1985 ALL PRO program that has brief recaps of the 1984 races. As for the ALL PRO Central results, I have never seen them listed anywhere. And txtom is a shortened version of a nickname I first got in the Military in the 80's. It started out as 'TexasTom" but i shortened it so i wouldn't have to type so damn many letters. My real name is Tom Taylor, but most on here and at the tracks I venture to know me by texastom or txtom.
  12. There are a lot of questions here, Lets start with the original post. The national All Pro tour ran two features on 4 August 1984. Gary Balough won the first one, and Freddy Fryar won the second one. Slick Yoemans was the pole starter for the first race. The top 6 finishers in the first race were inverted, putting Fryar on the pole for the second race. Then 99 of John Foster is not listed in the results of either race. Neither are the #2 of Trigg,#45 of Bob Bolin, #19 of Ronnie Whitmire, the 44 of John Talley, the #25, and Junior Robertson is not listed in either race result. A couple cars in those pictures are #58 Darrell Brown and #84 Chuck Johnson that were in the two races listed above. Also #1 is Don Wilson from Colorado. I am going to state that most of these pics are not the Southeast based ALL PRO series that ran on 4 August, but probably a race of the Texas wing of the All Pro Series that ran for about a year in this area. Foster, Yoemans, Trigg, Robertson, Bolin, Greg Davidson and others were all regulars in the Texas based series.
  13. Austin Racing History

    So Lee Machen had this poster in pretty sad shape. North Austin machinist extraordinaire Larry Schultz found someone in Austin that recreated it and made about 200 copies. The guy did in in the weathered style you see here.
