  1. I-37 Delivered!

    I totally agree. It was my first race at I-37 (and for my two friends also), and I was not disappointed. It was a great show, and we saw lots of cars and lots of racing action. A couple of the feature races had 24-25 cars starting, after eliminating several cars in the heats and B-Main. We loved all the sounds and smells of all of the racing action, especially when about 25 cars started the SportMod feature. I hope to see a similar show at Cotton Bowl Speedway this weekend. I'm adjusting to the dirt . . . bought some clear safety goggles to wear with my contacts this upcoming weekend at CBS! I'd like to add my personal thanks and appreciation to Kris Workman for his hard work in promoting the event and helping to raise money for breast cancer, which is a cause dear to my heart. And a special thanks goes out to Kelly Earnhardt for racing in my honor during the Powder Puff event. Thanks also to Bob Caulfield for loaning her a car to drive in that race. I'm really looking forward to going back again next year.
  2. SAS site of Electrathon Competition

    Interesting! It looks like they had to clean up the track to hold the competition. But the grandstands still look overgrown.
  3. As many of you may know, I've also been involved in a lot of the background processes and costs that go with a NASCAR sanctioned track at the local level. What Nick says above is all very true. It costs the track owners, officials, drivers and crews a lot of money to use the NASCAR logo. And as Nick stated above, the NASCAR name didn't carry much weight when it came to local media coverage.
  4. NASCAR is dying and they have no idea how to save it

    Yep, you've been saying that NASCAR has been on a decline for many years. But what would an uneducated reporter like you know (or whatever we were called back then)?
  5. RIP Jason Marshall #42

    I was so sorry to hear about Jason this morning. He was a really nice guy. I found this picture of Jason and his Pro Truck that was used in the 2009 Thunderhill Raceway Awards Banquet presentation. My thoughts and prayers are with Jason's family during this very difficult time.

  8. Sutherland Springs - Kris Workman

    Amen, Nick. By shutting out God and throwing out our nation's history, we're letting evil erode our country's infrastructure. Also, if we can't feel safe in our churches, we're really in deep trouble. Sending prayers for all of those affected by today's terrible incident.
  9. TPS Suspends 2017 Season

    Neil, It’s so sad to see the end of asphalt short track racing in Texas and the effects on your series, drivers, officials, etc. I know it must have broken your heart to write this release. Thanks for all of the hard work you did with TPS all of these years. I know that life does go on after racing, but it will always own a piece of your heart.
  10. WOW! I was shocked to hear the news. Although I've only gone to a couple of races this past year, CTS seemed to be doing very well with a great, efficient racing program. I hope a new lease holder can be secured soon. It breaks my heart to see yet another asphalt track bite the dust here in Texas.
  11. Snowball/Snowflake?

    The Speed51.com website now shows that the Snowball Derby has been postponed yet again to tomorrow (Tuesday) at 5:00P CST. What a mess for the folks at Five Flags Speedway, drivers, crews, fans, etc.!
  12. Way to go Smoke!

    Everything is going good for Smoke this week. Check out this article below on a special retirement gift courtesy of his home track. Too cool! Indianapolis Motor Speedway to build Tony Stewart a dirt track. http://www.sbnation.com/nascar/2016/6/29/12063982/indianapolis-motor-speedway-tony-stewart-dirt-track-midgets-sprint-cars?yptr=yahoo&ref=yfp
  13. 20,000th post!

    Thanks, Tom. I appreciate your kind remarks. And I continue to respect your extensive knowledge about our racers, events, etc. The encyclopedia in your head is truly amazing!
  14. 20,000th post!

    Reb, Your post was very touching. I think we've all seen your true passion for racing over the years, and you've been such an asset to the racing world for a long time. I've had the pleasure and fun of working with you many times, and I've enjoyed those times together, even when we pick on each other. Thanks for all you've done! From one of the other underqualified, uneducated, illiterate PR folks (or whatever we were called years ago by that "professional" PR guy)!! Deb
