  1. I know this site is mostly about Stock, Sprint, and Drag racing, but would anyone like to contribute stories about Sports Car racing in Texas? The SCCA had some memorable events in Texas, particularly the National Championship races at Bergstrom Air Force Base in 1953 and 1954. The Greenhill Racing Association (out of Dallas) hosted the Capitol City Road Races as part of the Austin Aqua Festival events in the late 1970's. Texas Spokes Sports Car Club (celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year), ran a Hill Climb at the foot of Mansfield Dam up to 1980, and TWS hosted its share of Can-Am and IMSA races as well. I raced Autocross with Texas Spokes from 1981 through 1984 and am now part of an SCCA group compiling the history of racing (in Central Texas mostly) for possible publication. Please share you stories, photos, etc. if you can.
  2. Austin Street Races

    Does anyone (else) remember the SCCA sponsored Austin Street Races, run in conjunction with the Austin Aqua Festival? I attended, and sometimes worked these races in the 1960s. I always had a great time, and vowed to race in them eventually. In 1977 I (finally) raced in, and WON my class A-Production. Any memories or pictures? L88 Austin.tif
