TBS Racing Hobby Stock Team First, Third and Last; Team Leader Terry Parking #01 Street Stock to Build a Better One


Kyle – The TBS Racing crew from Terry's Body Shop in Taylor hasn't really raced at Thunder Hill Raceway since April 9, though team leader Terry Tschoerner was doing some research and development work on his A-Line Auto Parts #01 Street Stock last week which has resulted in his deciding to park the car and build a new one. The good news is the long break, first for the NASCAR race in Ft. Worth on the April 16th and then due to the USRA Super Late Models and Race Trucks on April 23, meant Tracy Tschoerner kept the points lead in the Thunder Hill Hobby Stock class, with her uncle Joe Tschoerner of Bartlett in third, for three weeks.


The normal third member of the TBS Racing Hobby Stock team, Kevin Bowen, didn't have such a good opening to the season, blowing his engine in less than one lap in practice. But things weren't all bad for last year's second-place finisher in the Hobby Stock series, as it was a motor they had put in while his normal race engine was being refreshed and he will now start this Saturday night's race on the front row. His car has been fast in practice, and he'll be hard to catch.


Team leader Terry Tschoerner, one of the good guys of Central Texas racing and winner of the inaugural Support Texas Auto Racing Together (START) "Sportsman of the Year" award in 2004, was reported as having been disqualified in tech inspection last week. Say it isn't so, Terry!


Well, actually, it isn't so. Terry had discussed with Jack Sandefur, the chief tech inspector, doing some R&D work on the car with an eye toward convincing officials to change the rules if the changes Terry made improved the car. But he and Jack agreed that what he was doing was against the current rules, so he wouldn't go to tech inspection and would automatically be disqualified for not reporting to tech. The changes didn't do much good, anyway, and Terry is giving the car up as a lost cause, though he thinks it would make a good dirt track car.


The featured races this weekend include the Texas Pro Sedan series and the Thunder Hill Late Models. The grandstand gates open at 5:30 pm with opening ceremonies scheduled for 6:55 pm. Other races include the A-Line Auto Parts Street Stocks, Thunder Hill Hobby Stocks, Thunder Hill Grand Stocks and the Allison Legacy series.
