I want to thank I37 Speedway for a wonderful opening night. Your staff was very professional and friendly. Your attention to detail was impressive considering you were definitely overwhelmed. It takes time to work in a track that has not been used in 5 years but we had a very race able surface. I liked what the Swenson Modified car did by blowing off a groove on top that nobody used and ultimately made the winning difference. This surface reminded me of the slick Rio Grande Speedway track of years past that required steady car control and horsepower was not king. The fact that you sold out of everything showed that racing is alive and well in central Texas. I saw people from all over. Also even with the challenges of having to create additional fan parking while also blading new pit parking plus running 6 classes with heats and features the racing was done early enough. I was paid, loaded up and driving out the gate by 12:00. Got home before daylight. Cant wait for the next race. On a very personal note thank you for adjusting your 4 cyl program to upgrade from a frontrunner only series to a Sport Compact series allowing front AND rear wheel drive cars. All but 2 cars were Sport Compacts from CTS and I'm sure some had never raced on dirt. I saw some wonderful and good looking cars that will be fierce competitors soon. There are a lot of mini stock/ Thunder Car/Sport Compact idle racers watching to see if they too will join the fun. The modern car the factory builds today has a chance to perform in front of an audience that drives home in a similar car. The movie "Fast 8" will be out in a couple of weeks and now that audience has a live show to enjoy as well. Pro Sedans........You might have to downgrade some but here's a place to race if your inclined. Thank you CTS Compacts for allowing me to be a part of your show. I now have to work on Thumper because he got wrote up by the safety crew. It seems seat belts dated 1998 and a window net made before they put dates will not satisfy track officials. Seems they are looking out for us and that feels great. Also thank you Jay for your wonderful photographs and coverage of all the races in general. I get to follow a lot going on other tracks thanks to you and Nick and others. Thank you Speedzone for being there. OK, I shut up now.
RWolpin83 posted a topic in Archived Central Texas Speedway forumHi I'm Ross. I'm tired of being a spectator and I want to get out on the track! I work in the auto sales industry so I constantly have my eye out for cheap trade ins that would fit the Sport Compact or Grand Stock class at CTS. Right now I have my eye on a 2002 Grand Marquis w/ only 109,000 miles. What are yall's thoughts on this being a good (competitive) car for the Grand Stock Class? I have a little money to invest. Would consider buying an entry level car that's already built. I also need everything else for the build (or should I say strip down) so if anyone has anything second hand for sale from the driver seat to safety gear I'm all ears. Would you guys recommend me buying a roll cage kit from Summit of JEGS or can I get one made cheaper around here? (I live in Buda work in Austin) I'm mainly looking to meet some new friends, get some help, and get on the track. Maybe join a team? Thank you for any inside lines and suggestions. -Ross
