The Texas Pro Sedans Series 2005 annual Awards Dinner was held on Saturday night,

November 26 in San Antonio. The TPS custom of holding its annual awards ceremony

in conjunction with Thunder Hill Raceway could not be followed this year due to TPS

and THR date scheduling situations.

Hexsel and Johnson received embroidered Hoosier jackets, which were sent by Texas Pro Sedans sponsor Tom Lorenz, President of Hoosier Racing Tires Southwest. The jackets were presented by David Mackey, the TPS 13” Hoosier Tire Dealer in central Texas.


Several Texas Pro Sedans sponsors and members received personalized 30th Anniversary

Logo Appreciation Clock Awards. They included Richard and Bea Villanueva, Nelson Skinner and Steve Foster of San Antonio for their sponsorship of several TPS races at Thunder Hill Raceway and San Antonio Speedway races. David Mackey received a TPS clock award for his many years of support to TPS. Mike O’Conner of Weatherford, Texas and Luke and Candi Hogan of Austin were presented with a clock award for being TPS’s newest sponsors.


TPS Driver Mike Knotts designed, fabricated and presented the sponsor appreciation clocks for the sponsors and also presented Neil Upchurch with golf merchandise gifts in behalf of all TPS members.


Texas Pro Sedans Race and Administrative Director, Neil Upchurch presented awards to some recipients and a narrative presentation recalling the 2005, 30th TPS racing season. 2006 TPS Rules and Specifications were distributed to all TPS members who attended.
