Recommended Posts

Sorry I don't have full results for TSRS or Lone Star Legacy's yet.


Texas Super Racing Series, Insty Prints 75 and season opener, @ Thunder Hill Raceway 4/28/07

By J M Hallas

Kyle, Texas. (April 28 2007) For the second event on the Texas Super Racing Series schedule, the TSRS Late Models returned to Thunder Hill's 3/8 mile D-shaped track just outside of Austin. This would also be the season opener for the local Super Stocks, Hobby Stocks, Grand Stocks, Texas Pro Sedans, NASKarts and the orphaned San Antonio Road Runner class.


Austin Mobile Marine Qualifying,

After it was all said and done, who else but Bobby Joe New would hold fast time of the 18 competitors to take qualifying laps in the Austin Mobile Marine qualifying. New who bested Jesse Salazar in the last race by only 1/1000th of a second during the last race held in March, crushed the field with tonight’s attempt. The long time Austin area veteran, New, driving the white number 1 Southside Wrecker, Lozano Brothers Race Engines, Lefthander Chassis Chevy Monte Carlo instead of the familiar black 3, laid down a lap of 15.517 beating the identical times of Kyle Sirizzotti and Craig Sellman of 15.730.

“The car was loose in the last practice,” said New. “I told Junior about it and he went and got two tires and put them on. I don’t know where he got the from and told me they were ‘special tires’ and they worked. I think he got them from Days of Thunder or somewhere.”

“Whatever Chris(Schild) does, I’m going to do,” added New after the draw for invert. Chris is starting in front of me and he’s quick. If he nails the wall coming out of turn 4, I’ll be right behind him. No really, Chris is a good driver and he’s fast. It’s going to be fun. I’ll just to pick and choose my spots. I actually like the outside and I know Chris does too.”

“The two cars of ours are same, they’re just as quick. I don’t know that there’s any difference in either one of them.”


“Hopefully this is the start of better luck,” replied the newly coifed Sirizzotti after drawing the pole position. “The new hair cut is the only thing I can think of, we usually draw the worst that’s ever been in TSRS history. I’m proud of drawing number 1.”

“I hope (Chris) Schild can keep Bobby Joe(New) behind him, that way I don’t have to worry about either one of them. It’s kind of a relief having them behind me. I know both are good drivers, have a good head on their shoulders and are not going to jump the gun at the beginning of the race. I’m actually proud to have them behind me.”

“The only one that can lose this race is us. I’m just going to go have fun, keep a clean nose and hold the lead.”


In A-Line Auto Parts Super Stock qualifying it came as no surprise that two-time defending Street Stock Champion, Cary Stapp was quickest. Stapp's time of 16.400 was better than Doug Ayers 16.558.


Insty Print 75, Schild Snaps New’s Stranglehold.

Coming into the night’s Texas Super Racing Series action, Bobby Joe New had won three straight, was fastest qualifier, by 2/10th over the field so one would figure he would be able to make it four straight, right. Not so fast.... Former series Champion Chris Schild would have something to say about that. Schild took over the lead from Craig Sellman on lap 47 and would hold off New in the final stages to take the win by a couple car lengths, his first in over a year.


The start of the 75 lap TSRS main event was led to green by Kyle Sirizzotti and Schild. Bobby Teer jr had originally drawn the #2 starting spot, but pulled out of impound moving everyone else up one spot after the top six drew for position. Unfortunately the start would be an omen of things to come when Jason Hollander spun in turn 2 and Ian Webster got turned around in the pack and collected David Snokhaus in turns 3-4.


Coming to green for second try, Brian Moczygemba took a trip through the infield grass but continued on. The young Sirizzotti was first into turn 1 to grab the lead, as the high line fell back several positions. Gary Chancellor jr slipped up and fell back to tenth, but caught a break when Hollander spun again to bring out yellow and was allowed to retake his spot in the top five.


Back under green Sellman was looking low on Sirizzotti for the lead while Schild was pressuring James Reeder for third. Schild gave Reeder a tap in turn 2 then dove under him, the two ran side by side into turn 3 until Reeder spun in turn 4 for a caution. On the restart, Sirizzotti got a car length on Sellman who had Schild on his bumper. On lap 17 yellow waved again when Adam Haugh, Jason Stanley and Moczygemba got tangled in turns 1-2 sending Stanley around.


The top six stayed nose to tail once back underway until Jesse Salazar spun in turn 3 on lap 22. Moczygemba’s bad night continued as he spun into Salazar. On the next restart Ian Webster got into Chancellor sending him around in turn 2. Chancellor was returned to his spot, Webster to the tail. When green waved again former San Antonio Speedway Late Model Champion, Joe Aramendia took a look under Schild for third, but fell back in line.


Aramendia tried to get under Schild again on lap 34 but got loose backing up the field. On lap 35 Stanley and Webster tangled in turns 3-4 with Stanley going to the back and Webster given his spot back. The next restart would see the complexion of the race change entirely when green waved. Sellman got the nose under Sirizzotti going down the back stretch. Going into turn 3 the two made contact with the top two spinning, Schild diving for the infield and Tater Mason getting caught up in the melee.


After some discussion among officials, Sellman, who was lapped twice under yellow, was given the lead and Sirizzotti sent to the tail. Sellman, whose car may have been wounded in the incident was quickly passed by Schild when the race resumed. Aramendia, who was racing wounded himself after being injured when a car slid into the catch fence during a previous race, also got by Sellman to take second. Sellman and New then got hooked together in turn 2 battling for third bringing out the yellow. Sellman went to the back, New maintained third.


The green wasn’t back out long as Teer, Webster, Haugh and Moczygemba all tangled in turns 1-2. When green finally waved again, Schild got a two car margin on Aramendia who being pressured by New. New finally ducked inside Aramendia on lap 65 to grab second. Chancellor tried to fill the hole, but had the door slammed shut by Aramendia. Chancellor and Aramendia continued to fight for third, with Chancellor giving the veteran a few taps in the corners, while New was trying to reel in Schild.


New caught a break on lap 68 when Moczygemba spun into the turn 4 grass and rebunched the field for the restart. Schild inched away from New on green who had already gotten a good advantage over Aramendia, Chancellor, Bill Hamilton, who quietly snuck into the top five, and Teer who worked his way back to the front. The final caution waved on lap 69 when Stanley and Reeder spun in turn 3, sending Moczygemba into the grass yet again.


Schild and New got away clean on green to settle it among themselves, leaving Aramendia, Chancellor, Hamilton and Teer to battle for third. Schild slowly crept ahead in the final laps never giving New the chance to mount a serious challenge. In the fight for third, Chancellor finally got inside Aramendia, who now had an injured car on top of his own injuries, and was able to make the pass on lap 72. Up front it was Schild, building a two car length margin, gabbing the checkers in his Splash Water Systems, Royal Purple, JT Schild Enterprises, Vinyl Graphics LLC, Ohlin Shocks, American Performance, KAM Race Engines, home built chassis.


“It was a real good race,” replied Schild. “I kept looking for Bobby Joe(New) on the restarts. This year everyone has stepped up their game and there’s more guys running the same times. The field is so close, it’s going to take a real consistent car to get a win.”


“It was good, hard racing,” added Schild regarding all the cautions. “Sometimes wrecks are going to happen. We had to dive for the infield when two leaders got together. I think we had something for them anyway. I have to thank my crew chief, Gerald Boyd, Randy, Matt, my dad and, of course, my wife or I may be sleeping in my race car(jokingly)”

Stapp Stomps Super Stock field

Defending Super Stock Champion and fast qualifier, Cary Stapp showed he had lost no momentum over the season as he got out front on green, pulled away from the field and snagged the his first, of probably many, victories for the year. The race was marred, and had laps reduced, by a red flag that saw one spectator suffer a severe gash to his chin and tongue, while TSRS driver, Joe Aramendia suffered some bumps and bruises on his forehead and leg after a car lost a tire/wheel and slid into the pit road catch fence. Aramendia went on to race his feature, and no word was available on the spectator who was transferred to a local hospital.


As green waved on the scheduled 40 lap event, Stapp jumped out from the pole to the lead in turn 1. Keith Garret grabbed second while Duane Toyne and Doug Ayers ran door to door for third, with Terry Tschoerner fifth. Toyne took third with Ayers hung on the side giving Te. Tschoerner the chance to take fourth. Stapp was motoring away by lap 5, with the top five separating themselves from the pack. Scott Stubbs spun on lap 8 collecting Todd Weeks and knocking the front sheet metal and bumper cover off.



On the restart, Stapp slowly inched away from Garrett and had built a comfortable margin when the red flag waved on unlucky, lap 13. Te. Tschoerner and Ayers both slid off turn 1 with Te. Tschoerner’s car losing a tire/wheel, going all the way to the pit road catch fence and tire barrier. The crowd sat in stone cold silence as emergency crews rushed to pits. Fortunately it appears no one suffered any life threatening injuries and repairs were made to the fence. During the red, the race was shortened by 16 laps, with restart now being considered the halfway mark.


Stapp once again got away from Garrett and Toyne once the race resumed as they built a lead over John Banker and Micky McKim. Yellow waved on lap 22 when San Antonio Speedway Road Runner Champion, Mark Mathias had a lazy spin while running eighth. Stapp got a good jump when green waved, with Toyne bump drafting Garrett down the from straight and Banker, McKim, Chris Birmingham and Chad Menard ran nose to tail for fourth.


The top three then pulled away from the fourth place battle until Menard got into Banker sending him spinning and bringing the caution back out. Banker was returned to his spot and Menard found his way to the back. Stapp held his stranglehold on the lead as the top three got away from the pack. Ayers was able to work his way back, getting by Banker for sixth with ten to go.


Ayers caught McKim and Birmingham making it a three car fight for fourth. As Stapp increased his lead on Garrett, Toyne crept up on Garrett’s bumper with five lap remaining. As the white flag waved, Stapp had built a lead of ten car lengths on the Garrett, Toyne scrap for second and easily took the checkers.
