North TX Asphalt Championship Race

Recommended Posts


You didn't list any of the So TX track rules for modifieds. Are Houston or USRA rules acceptable? Also, we use radios, so can we use radios for this race? What tire will be used?

This is right between OktoberFast and Stock Car Spec, so we might be able to make it up there.

Houston or USRA rules are accepted. If you run The F53's you have to run RRS Rules. Radios are fine, we have used radios all year at RRS. Here is the track owners number, Mike Cooper 940-636-5258, besure to tell him I told you to call. Anyone welcome to call.

Now I'm in trouble! :huh:

Racing Legend LLOYD RUBY will be Grand Marshall at Red River Speedway

for the North Texas Asphalt Championship Races!

Novenber 18th, 2006

For More Information go to www.redriverspeedway.com



Lloyd Ruby seated in the car he raced in the 1961 Indianapolis 500.


For 18 years, race car driver Lloyd Ruby challenged the brickyard at the Indianapolis 500. For five of

those years he led the race at various points. He was always in contention; it always looked like it was

going to be his year. But it never was. He became known as "the best driver to never win the 500," a label that was something of a backhanded compliment, but one that never bothered him. "It was almost the truth," Ruby said. "It was just bad luck to be leading the race five different times and then to go out on every one of them. Every year, I just put it behind me and hoped the next year would be the one. I guess I just didn't stay around long enough."


Wichita Falls, Texas just recently honored Ruby, 78, the elevated expressway that runs the length of downtown from north to south. What was once known as the Broad/Holliday overpass will now be called the Lloyd Ruby Overpass.

With over 100 cars in the pits for the North Texas Asphalt Championship Race, Mother Nature was the winner this weekend. Red River Speedway looked more like just River Speedway.

The weekend was not a total washout! Friday night Practice saw lots of cars, Barbecue & beverage consumption. Saturday the gates opened to sunshine with pactice in all classes completed...then the rain came.

The Track and there crew tried to keep the track dry but mother nature finally won out. After overnight night rains dumped as much as 6 inches of rain. Promotor Mike Cooper had to call the show off.

The race will be rescheduled for Nov. 18th. Gate will open at 9am and will be a one day show.

More info to follow.


Thanks to everyone who came out. Look forward to getting the show in on Nov. 18th!
