  1. The New 2020 Nascar Champ

    My only real issue with the chase is the way points accumulate once it starts. The drivers in the chase should only be scored against each other. Bad luck on lap one in the first round should get you 16th place points, not 40th place points. (Unless they've changed that recently?)
  2. HMP eco stock - SOLD!

    There's another one for sale on Facebook. Here's a screenshot.
  3. $500 OBO Moving sell. I've had this stuff for years, and it's time to get rid of it. No reasonable offer refused, unreasonable offers might be considered. Delivery available in the Houston area for diesel money. Don't make me cart this stuff to the new house! All this stuff came off an older SCCA GT1 Camaro. It's all in good, not great, condition. It's used, and came off a race car, after all. Hood, fenders, and nose are fiberglass. Doors and deck lid are metal. Doors are the complete shell, gutted, with a skin on the inside. I don't know what brand the fiberglass parts are. I really don't know much, except the project I bought them for never panned out, and they've been in my shed for 10 years or so. Call or text. Please leave a message if I don't answer. Tobey 281-793-3853
  4. What a great time last night. The crowd was probably down a little due to the weather. But the racing was great. Next race is August 15.
  5. TSTRS/NASCAR Season Opener @HMP

    It was a great night. Good weather, good crowd, good racing. Car counts were good, 19 Ecos, 20 Pro Mods, 13 Trucks. It was a good start to the season.
  6. Back to the Track 2020 Race Day Schedule

    I'm not sure if these are official. https://speedhive.mylaps.com/Events/1773573
  7. TSTRS/HMP RaceDay Schedule June 20

    6:00, I believe.
  8. 2020 TSTRS Re-Vised Racing Schedule

    Me, if it doesn't rain. But that seems unlikely at this point. So next weekend then.
  9. I'm wondering if the computer just isn't turning the fuel pump on while cranking? When you checked the fuel pressure, was that while running, or not running with just the key on? Check it with just the key on and while cranking. When you turn the key on, the fuel pump should run about 2 seconds to build pressure. And it should start running again while cranking the engine. Alternatively, pull the fuel pump relay and jump the fuel pump terminals to make it run continuously, and see if it starts.
  10. TSTRS - First race in the books!

    I've been going to the races as a spectator for basically my entire life. Stock cars, sports cars, Indy cars, sprint cars, I've seen them all. For the last 10 or so years, I've been doing endurance road racing with a team of friends. But I always wanted to try the circle track. This year, with HMP opening back up, I built an Eco Stock and joined the fun. And I'm having a blast. It was really fun to see the crowd the other night and all the cars in the pits. I hope we can all keep the momentum up and finish the year strong. And it was nice to get home at a decent hour.
  11. OK, soap box time again

    I think anyone that's been going to the races long enough has a near-miss story at a minimum. Luckily, I haven't witnessed anything traffic. I went to Indiana Sprint Week several years ago. We saw a sprint car flip over the fence in Terre Haute. Between 1&2 where there were no stands. In Haubstaudt, we saw a tire get loose, bounce over the fence between 1&2, cross the road, and end up several hundred feet into the adjacent corn field. If it had gone into the stands, it would have been very ugly. Personally, I always sit close to T4. I feel safer at the exit of the corner as opposed to further along the straightaway.
  12. Excellent! Great work on continuing the effort by the TSTARS folks. I plan to be there with my Eco.
  13. You're exactly right. It's completely racer funded. Admission is generally free for the friends and family that come out to watch. Actual spectators are few and far between. For good reason. Amateur road course racing isn't very exciting to watch unless you are a real passionate fan of the sport.
  14. I've never raced on a circle track before, and decided to try out the EcoStocks this year. I've been road course racing for the last 10 years. I've never been paid a single dollar for a win, place, or show, let alone getting my entry fee back, which can be several hundred for a sprint race weekend to $1650 for a 14-hour endurance race on the Daytona road course. So I was pleased as punch to get $100 for taking 3rd place at the last race. I've got to say, though, the biggest difference I see between what I've been doing the last 10 years and the circle track is the animosity towards the track/promoters/officials, both at the track and on the web. Nick and others have been preaching it for years, but the racers seem to be their own worst enemy. If we want to have a place to race, we all have to realize that it's a partnership between the track, the promoter, and the racers. And yes, I only race Ecostock. You probably spend more on tires than I spent on my car. Well, so did I. It's just that my tires will last a little longer...
  15. Best of luck to him in the recovery process. https://www.mrn.com/2019/04/01/self-issued-substance-abuse-policy-penalty/
