A very sad chapter in the history of Corpus Christi Speedway indeed. Hopefully something good will come out of this mess.

 

The Yocums have done more than their share to keep asphalt racing in South Texas alive. May God bless this family for all their hard work and dedication on behalf of all of us folks who need our racing fix.

 

But it's time for someone with a sound financial background and a true love of the sport to step up and make this place live up to it's unlimited potential.

I am sorry to hear that too. Everyone beware of future scams!

On the other hand, if we all stay on a heightened "scam alert mode," people with a legitimate business plan to revive the speedway may be hesitant to step up knowing they will not be receiving the benefit of our support.

 

I think we have all learned from this unfortunate experience, but perhaps an even greater lesson is that asphalt race tracks are no longer a "given" in Texas. Counting CC and Wichita Falls, there are only four such tracks remaining. The concept that if we build a race car, someone is obligated to provide us a place to race is history.

 

 

SO Shelma never purchased the track? Was this the same as I-37, media coverage and all when it was never purchased?

Whatever contractual agreements were in place at either I-37 and CC Speedway are for the parties involved to know and for us to wonder about.

 

But going back and re-roasting Shelma Walton and James Beasley is not gong to do any of us any good whatsoever.

Sorry. Carol, I know you & Donnie have done everything possible from your end to make this work. I appreciate the TRUST your family has developed with us racers thru the years. When you make a statement it has CREDIBILITY, something sadly lacking at this point with your "buyers". Hopefully things will work out for you & all the RACERS in the area who love CCS .

I know my family is still willing to help any way we can to help the track recover. THANKS for keeping us 'in the loop' by making this announcement. At least now I can tell all the people who keep asking about the track something definitive. Again, SORRY, I know y'all got jerked around worse than the rest of us. Hope to see you soon under better circumstances.

 

 

On another note, anybody know how to contact Tony Stewart or Ken Shrader? I hear the Yocums' have a track to sell!

I think Texas Terry will be an option. A few years back, he looked at buying a local dirt track, but never did. He is now retired, his home track is shut down, what an oppurtunity. Labonte Speedway!!!! That alone would attract drivers and fans from all over. Legendary

Of course it is wishful thinking, but it is not far fetched. I know he wants to buy a track and he has the money to do it.

Thanks to the vast majority of you for keeping this thread as postitive as possible under the circumstances.

 

Of course, as you might expect, I have removed a few posts.

 

Just the thought of Terry Labonte purchasing CC Speedway gives me goose bumps!

I HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH YOU ON THAT. IF THEY ARE GENUINE, TRUE, AND HAVE THE BACKING THEY SAY THEY HAVE I THINK TALK WOULDN'T BOTHER THEM........ LET'S HOPE ANYWAY. BUT IT WILL BE HARD TO TRUST ANY ONE. MAKES IT HARD FOR BOTH.

You know I'm just rolling in money from all I make here at Texas Speed Zone. LOL...

 

But that name just has to go... I'd much rather see it named TLCCS - "Terry Labonte's Corpus Christi Speedway."
