  1. I recall the powers at THR decided to add to the backstretch. Probably fewer cars going off and causing extended cautions. Maybe look up whoever was in charge when that was done for advice. (That is if there’s enough room for it.) Mel This is exciting!
  2. Slick Yoemans RUSS Interview

    Super job Rodney & Bobby. Here's one of my fav Slick rides:
  3. Nascar buys ARCA

    I wonder how that meeting went: NA$CAR - I'm buying your series, ARCA - I really don't want to sell. NA$CAR - Well, your series can not race at any NA$CAR sanctioned track. ARCA - SOLD! 😎
  4. They were down to 36 entries at Atlanta. Plenty of room for more rides. All you need is $$$ and they're in.
  5. i-37 speedway live updates 10-7-17

    I got problems but that ain't one of them. Lol, yes very few people that he couldn't get along with. Wish I was more like him ...

    Hey Mike, this reminded me of CC Speedway in the 70's. Do you remember the run-ins between Jerry Edwards & Monty Nichols III? Mel
  8. Starting to see improvements

    Well, the title of this thread is positive, and I like how it has turned to leaving some fond memories: There are so many to choose from, One particular Saturday just before the new season was starting, had to be in the mid-late 70's. Frank, Sandy & ol' Harold would always paint the walls & stands in the off season. As it was close to the season start a few racers were practicing. Towards the end of the day, Monty Nichols was practicing his hobby stock and lost it in 1-2, and smacked the wall. It was very quiet and Big Frank hollers out, hand that damn boy a paint brush! Well, it was humorous then, I guess you had to be there. I for one believe there will be many more memories made there. When it's ready, we'll be ready too. Mel

  11. where to buy 100 + octane fuel

  12. Stolen truck

    That's the area they stole Mark Oiela's truck. They made a b-line for the border where it was found a week or so later.
  13. More old pics

    Is 40 my ol' buddy Ron Hurley?
  14. Yes, the car did have a long life. On the CC thread there are a few pics of the original owner building a car in 1972. I believe this is the same car. Original owner's name was Peterman I believe.
  15. Without all of your hard work and perseverance there would have been no Pro Sedans, TPS sedans & Late Models, TWS races, no Texas Race of Champions. Thinking about all the great racers that were brought together by these races is very cool. Priceless Memories. I know it hasn't always been easy. Thank you for all you have done for the Texas racers & their families. Your efforts are appreciated. Hopefully asphalt racing in Texas is just taking a short break. Mel Krauss
