Motorsports and involvement with TIDA/TPS has been a big part of my life, but it is time to move on. I have a fishing boat. My wife Rebecca and I will be fishing more often and also spending time with my elderly father in North Texas. I want to express my best to you and the TPS organization. We do have a great group of people associated with the Texas Pro Sedans. Sincerely, Robert Carter”.


Upon receiving Robert Carter’s retirement announcement, TPS Race and Administrative Director, Neil Upchurch said, “Robert and Rebecca Carter have been devoted and loyal officials. Their value to this TPS organization is beyond my ability to adequately describe, so I will just say THANK YOU in behalf of all TPS members, sponsors and officials. As we move into our 30th year, TPS will miss Robert and Rebecca Carter, a lot”.
