Here's hoping for a great 2019 for Texas racing

Recommended Posts

Asphalt short track racing in Texas is hanging on by a thread and the good will of a few key folks. 

For the past several years we have heard rumors of someone wanting to revive Austin's Longhorn Speedway, of someone buying the fast-decaying San Antonio Speedway property, etc. but so far those rumors have proved to be simply wishful thinking gone wild. 

We sure hope that the talk of a new track in Marion is backed with legitimate plans and actual financial backing. Time will tell the story, but we remain hopeful.

Personally, I have a vision for a large motorsports complex (including a 3/8-mile asphalt track) in Central/South Texas and a general idea of how it would operate. So, if someone with lots of money, a true love of asphalt motorsports and the willingness to hear my vision(s) would like to sit down with me over lunch one day, I'm game.

I got you on all this Nick except for the money part. Getting older and need the money for my golden years. That is unless of course I win the lottery.

     Any new track to be successful is going to need a new approach. Doing the same thing that's been around for  the last 20 years did not work for the tracks now closed. A new show that involves more people will work. Todays money is in the numbers, not the gifted. The most successful promoters I have raced for understood this.
