Starting to see improvements

Recommended Posts

I really don't understand how so much drama, and bickering always finds its way into any conversation that has anything to do with CC SPEEDWAY.

When the time is right, and all the improvements are done, and Dan finally opens the gates for racing, I hope and pray that everyone can co-exist and we all can race again.

Hopefully with asphalt racing all but gone in Texas, a lesson will be learned and the track gets the support in needs to survive from the drivers and fans alike.....

I hope when its all said and done she comes back better then ever! Like alot of people our racing started at CCS with my old man. A ton of memories about that place. It was going on pretty good with the beer garden, mud drags, go cart track, motocross in back, the announcer Russ Martin, TIDA and even some pretty good concerts coming in. Our learning curve for CCS was pretty difficult trying to keep up with the likes of Bruce Beddoe, Greg Carlucci Sr., Charlie Heflin, Billy Christopher, Jeff Myers, Sam Wilcox, Beaver Stilzik when he came in from SA and many others. The class was all cameros with a chevelle or two mixed into the class. We were the first car in the class to run a metric frame. '79 Buick Regal in 1981 provided by Lundquest Buick of Corpus Christi. We never could afford new racing tires so we bought used takeoffs from anyone and everyone. We got an occasional heat race win but against those super stocks that was a tall task. One night all the stars aligned and somehow we pulled out a feature win, boy you would have thought we had made the big time. After struggling, learning and coming back week after week after that win that night every driver in the class came and congradulated my dad and his racing team (his family). We bought our first new racing tire with some of the purse winnings. Later that year several CCS Super Stocks towed to San Antonio us never have seen the track before to race in the Texas Classic with several other CCS Super Stocks. We even ran the same CCS final drive. I remember standing on the back straight away it seemed like we were at Talledega when he went by screaming at 8,000 rpm! There was so many cars in that race from all over the country. After an early crash me and my brother pulled the front end off that car in pit lane and my dad went back out to finished the race. Overall the CCS drivers did well and represented little Ol' CCS pretty good. Mind you we were maybe 11 and 13 at the time. Those memories will never leave my head!

Man SAS has plenty of memories too but in respect to this being a CCS thread, will leave those out. But being born and raised in Corpus, when we headed to SAS, the "big track", I understand the Talladega type feeling.
