Terry, just let me know when I can be of help with Mike Debbie, you are making life so much easiier for Mike (and therefore me). Thank you for all the thoughtful gestures. Frank, how are you doing?

  3. We Need Your Help!

    Sorry about that! Both my wife and I proofread my post and still missed the location. Under the grands at San Antonio Speedway.
  4. We Need Your Help!

    WE NEED YOUR HELP! The San Antonio Speedway Late Model Division 2005 and beyond rule book is a BLANK piece of paper! We very simply have NO rulebook, just some ideas. Our staff has tried for the past several days to get in touch with Late Model and Super Street Stock drivers and car owners but have had limited success. Many of the phone numbers that we have are inaccurate or phones were left unanswered. On Sunday January 9, 2005 (tomorrow) at 11:00 A.M. there will be a meeting seeking driver/owner input for a brand new rulebook for the feature division. The intent of this important meeting is for the drivers/owners who spend the thousands of dollars to build and race these cars the opportunity to be part of the rules making process. It makes no difference what car, track or series you are currently running with or want to in the future or if you own a 15 year old car or a brand new state of the art car, we need YOUR input. We hope to be able to include in the rules making process; different chassis styles, wheelbase lengths, heads, blocks, transmissions, clutches, and other components that are currently being used or sitting around in the garage collecting dust because of former rules changes. The ultimate goal is to make Late Model style racing at San Antonio Speedway fair, fun, competitive and affordable again without anymore rules changes in the future. Please attend this meeting if at all possible and if you personally can not attend send a representative in your behalf to express your thoughts. If that is not possible then call Mike Sepich 210-829-0405 Paul Lozano 210-365-5945, or send email to mikesepich@swbell.net Thanks Mike Sepich

  8. To all Arts drivers

    October 11, 2004 SPORTSMAN Race - October 16 San Antonio Speedway strives to present a level and fair playing field for all competitors all of the time. We constantly review our rules to encourage the greatest amount of competitors to be able compete in our events. Last week after reviewing a request to allow the AllStar Race Trucks to compete during the Sportsman OktoberFAST race on October 16, we looked at previous race results and decided based on known current data that the trucks would be fair competition vehicles. On Saturday night we immediately noticed that the trucks were running quicker than in August. This morning we acquired the qualifying times for the August 14 event and compared them to the October 9 event and the trucks are running a lot quicker. All of this data was found on the AllStar Race Truck website. POS Aug 14 Oct 9 Difference #1 21.619 21.399 +0.220 #2 21.671 21.493 +0.178 #3 21.799 21.521 +0.278 #4 21.913 21.541 +0.350 #5 21.920 21.563 +0.357 #6 21.963 21.565 +0.398 #7 22.120 21.672 +0.448 #8 22.412 21.834 +0.578 #9 22.665 21.936 +0.729 #10 22.678 21.978 +0.700 AVG 22.076 21.650 +0.426 We looked at different options including the addition of weight or changes of left side percentages but felt that without a considerable amount of testing time the results would be mixed. Regretfully, San Antonio Speedway will not allow the AllStar Race Trucks to compete on October 16, 2004. Mike Sepich
