Promoter's Perspective 8.19.20

Time to get back to racing!

August 19th 2020:

I thought I would kick off this weekend’s racing with a mid-season update and a couple of exciting announcements for this Saturdays Race…
1st thing I’ve never worked so hard to just say “we’ve made it to mid-season”, 👏that’s saying something in this pandemic world,, we’re so appreciative of our county officials trusting in us to get to do what we all love to do, with some restrictions, but we’re averaging 80% of the capacity numbers allowed although our grandstands are down 50% from last year, this is putting HUGE pressure on the financials of the track.
Thank goodness for our sponsors, and RACE TEAMS for keeping us going! We’re so happy to be able to offer SPEEDPASS through RACE ON TEXAS for those that still are not comfortable getting out or those that unfortunately can’t get out. I love SPEEDPASS and we were the 1st track to debut it, just saying. 🏁🥂😎 Our amazing announcers, Rodney Rodriguez and Joe Spillman make you feel like you’re right there!
Normally we don’t really get this far ahead, however H & I are looking forward to 2021!! We had a very encouraging meeting with Jim (IMCA) last Saturday. These folks are truly reaching out. As well, WoO has tentatively booked with us for 2021! We by far are not out of the woods in 2020, however trying to power ahead!

Now to THIS Saturday… IMCA Southern SportMods! $1,000 to WIN Guaranteed with the help of Baja and Spillman Equipment! PLUS Take the $500 Drop to the rear challenge from Joe Spillman and pull of the WIN like Cody Tidwell did in his MAGNUM IMCA Modified last race… YOU could walk out of here with $1,500 in your pocket!

GUNSLINGER FACTORY STOCKS & BROWNING IMCA Stock Cars UP TO $525 to win! (Includes $200 GUNSLINGER Quick draw award for fastest lap)

On-line tickets go on sale 10am Thursday morning @ If purchased ONLINE you will NOT be charged for your cooler which can include food & drinks (please no glass bottles) saves you the $10 cooler charge! Now don’t forget our concessions are also open!
Star Event Concessions in grandstands and Torceys Tacos 🌮 in our Pit Area!

Drivers and teams… we’ve got some extra $$$$ on the line thanks to Joe Spillman, Spillman Equipment, John Alverson, Baja and John Hobbs, GUNSLINGER! Thanks to these fine folks in addition to our current payouts.


HOPE TO SEE EACH OF YOU THIS SATURDAY! Pit Gates open @ 3, Grandstands @ 5 & Opening Ceremony 7pm. Its gonna be 🔥 hot, start hydrating! Remember even though we’re an outdoors venue, we’re social distancing and highly encourage 😷 mask, besides the Covid-19, we’re a dirt track!🤣 Glasses and 😷 mask encouraged in these hot temperatures.

Hugs, (virtual) 🤣
