TxRaceFan Posted June 28, 2004 Report Share Posted June 28, 2004 Just wanted to congratulate a few of the local area race teams who have decided to put up rather than shut up in terms of getting their cars in front of more prospective fans... The #99 Stapp Street Stock which runs a regular schedule at THR Raceway has recently been seen making the Central Texas Hometown Festival circuit, having appeared recently in parades at the Lockhart Chisholm Trail Roundup (CTR) and the Luling Watermelon Thump (Thump). This year's CTR parade also featured home-town driver #22 Rodney Rodriguez of the San Antonio Sportsman Class Outlaw II Motorsports team. The parade featured floats and businesses from as far away as Lampasas, Flatonia, San Antonio, Austin, Gonzales, and many others. The Outlaw II car also made an appearance at the Luling Watermelon Thump's annual car show on Sunday, June 27, taking home a first place trophy for his car's appearance in over 23 classes of antique, hotrod, race, street, and refurbished cars and show trucks. The Outlaw II team gave away 3 sets of SAS tickets to prospective race fans who came by to admire their car and trophy after the judging was completed. Granted, these two drivers are known for being fan-friendly - but face it, it's a good thing when you can get your car in front of a whole group of people who might not otherwise realize what track opportutnities exist literally in their own back yards. Way to go, guys. Hope some of these good deeds pay off for you in terms of fan loyalty and driver recognition. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
