  1. Spent some time at SAS on Monday with Matthew Dillner and his Lost Speedway production team. Took some pics while I was there. Press box standing tall - Flag stand standing tall too. I climbed up and it's solid as a rock up there. Didn't try to go to the press box where I spent a lot of time while writing for The San Antonio Light newspaper. Wonder who left that deep mark on the wall... Guess they don't want folks enjoying the track these days. The van was one of several vehicles used by the Lost Speedways production team. Where do I sign the waiver?? Where the fuel pump used to stand. The tank is still down there with more leaks than ever I'm guessing. Many a DQ happened at these scales or on the nearby tech pad. Victory lane and the score board could use some sprucing up. "Drivers' meeting in five minutes, y'all." I could almost hear myself say over the PA and imagine all those happy, smiling faces as we went over the lineups... Looking towards turn 1 from the second row of pit pads. Looking towards turns 1-2 from the front straight. Back gate and NASCAR signage. The little pit pass shack is long gone.
  2. This is the article I remotely filed with the San Antonio Light. As you can see, the what they printed was pretty much just the first two paragraphs. This happened a lot since motorsports was not very high up the Sports Editor's totem pole.
  3. A great deal of wishful thinking surrounded these two racing enterprises. We all know the sad history of Ishin's and Dr. Respess' involvement at TWS and its ultimate fate, But less known is the story of the ill-fated Lone Star Motorsports Park. While I make no accusations, the folks behind the proposal had attempted to gain financial backing for at least two other magnificent racing facilities, one in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the other somewhere in Mississippi to be known as Mississippi Motorsports Park. Since we have never read of either of these two tracks, nor do we race at Lone Star Motorsports Park, it seems safe to assume whatever attempts Race Marking Associates made to fund these three facilities failed. One is left to wonder, however, whatever happened to the funds, if any, that were raised by this group. It must have been some money involved since the proposed Lone Star Motorsports Park was their third venture. If the Race Marketing Associates business model seems familiar, recall the efforts of one Donald Teague to raise money to build multiple NASCAR quality tracks throughout the Lone Star State a decade, or so, later. As racers we get all excited when we hear of wonderful new places to feed our racing addiction. Unfortunately, we fall for it way too often.
