On Saturday, February 18, Lone Star Legacy teams will have a great opportunity to run a lot of laps at the 1.4-mile Grandsport Speedway road course located at 7555 FM 2004, Hitchcock, TX 77563 (a  few miles South of Houston).

We will be participating in what Grandsport calls a “Track Day,” which means that different groups get to alternate practice sessions all day.  Usually there are two or three groups participating and we will be our own group thanks to Mr. Huff’s ability to negotiate with the track management.  So we will have lots of track time since this is an “all day” session.

The cost is $150 per car no matter how many people come with the car.  This price is half the usual Track Day fee of $299, again, thanks to Mr. Huff’s negotiating skills.

Lone Star Legacy teams wanting to take advantage of this great opportunity need to contact James Huff or Nick Holt before Wednesday, February 15, so we can get a solid car count to give to the track.

The track’s website is https://grandsportspeedway.com/ and the Track Day information is found at https://grandsportsp...rt-track-days/,

Any current or former Lone Star Legacy legal car is invited to participate, but it will not be an official Lone Star Legacy sanctioned event - just a play day.  Therefore, technical rules will not be enforced and sway bars will be permitted.  However, the same no contact rules that we always run under will apply.

Weather forecast is showing mostly sunny with a high of 75 degrees for Saturday.  Sounds good to me!

Test and tune was.IMO.a big success.Seven legacy cars started the day and only seven finished.The guys who had never been on a road track learned fast and were turning some respectable times by days end.

I finally got my sled to where I could keep it on the pavement and out of the grass and off the wall so I'm a happy guy.
