Reb,

 

Please change Thunderhill Raceway's start time to 6P. Also, here's the correct list of our classes (not all of the local classes are NASCAR divisions):

 

NASCAR Modifieds, NASCAR Trucks, NASCAR TSRS Late Models, SportMods, TSRS Allison Legacys, NASCAR Super Stocks, Thunder Stocks, Grand Stocks, Mini Stocks, Dwarf Cars, Bandoleros and NasKart Pro Racing Series

 

Thanks for putting the list together!

I-35 Kartway is now in Elm Mott, Tx. right next to Heart O' Texas Speedway.

 

They had to move the track due to the I-35 expansion project. It is just south of HOT, infact, right next door on land that was once over-flow parking for HOT.

Northside speedway is still located at Greens Rd. and Lee Rd. It has been inactive for some years. This is an old Houston track that folded years ago. I drove that track back in the mid 50s. Nice track, shame it didn't survive......................................... :(

Russ,

 

There is only one short track asphalt oval in Texas that is currently in operation - Central Texas Speedway in Kyle, Texas.

 

Of course, Texas Motor Speedway and the Circuit of the Americas are in operation as are a few road course venues including MSR Houston, Angelton, Texas, Texas World Speedway road course in College Station, Texas, Gransport Motorsports Park in Hitchcock, Texas (30 miles South of Houston) and Harris Hill Raceway in San Marcos, Texas.

May I add a Meyer Speedway, Houston (1/2 mile) historic item - Meyer Speedway started in 1959 and had one NASCAR Cup event in 1971. The race included Bobby Allison and Richard Petty, James Hylton, Ronnie Chumley driving for H.B. Bailey, Tony Bettenhausen Jr. , Walter Ballard and Jerry Schild in a 300 lap night race. The event paid winner Bobby Allison $2,000 which was big money in those days. The race was co-promoted by Ed Hamblen and Bill France Sr.

Later track history witnessed encroaching residential and commercial properties in Houston near Meyer Speedway at the intersection of South Main at Hillcroft. The track was closed in 1979 and subsequently demolished).
