Back to the Roots of Street Racing

We hosted a “traditional” street racing event on Saturday, June 27th. No time slips. No track prep. Hand drop during the day and then a flashlight start after dusk. We had approximately 275 drivers and almost 1,500 spectators on the grounds at Caprock Motorplex. The evening was filled with grudge racing between all types of cars, trucks motorcycles and even a four wheeler on slicks. The burnout contest was the highlight of the event with the winner taking home $250 in cash. The Mexico Racing League was onsite selling merchandise and filming the event. We can’t wait to see their video. If you missed out, here are some photos. We’ll see you the weekend of July 24th at the test and tune on Friday evening and the bracket race on Saturday featuring the The Curtis Huff Memorial Jr Dragster Blowout.

Reflow Energy Solutions JR Dragster Cash Bash

Saturday, June 20th, was a fantastic day here at Caprock Motoplex. We hosted the first annual Reflow Energy Solutions JR Dragster Cash Bash, the Brad Stillwell Photography Bracket Blowout, West Texas Mean Street and the newest class, 4.70 Knights. We were happy to see a lot of new faces and cars in the staging lanes. If you didn’t make it out, you missed our best show to date. The 4.70 Knights brought the noise and especially the speed! As usual, here are the photos from the day from Brad Stillwell Photography. We hope to see you next Saturday at our first No Prep Street Racing shootout.

No Prep Street Racing – Saturday, June 27th.

True street style racing in a controlled environment. Mexico Racing League will be onsite filming and selling merchandise. This is the safest possible way to settle your grudges. You don’t have to worry about getting a ticket, getting your car impounded, or hurting an innocent person. The only thing you have to worry about is your pride.

Do you have what it takes? Come out and see for yourself!

April 25th Results

We had a total of 159 racers and close to 900 spectators show up for the second points race of the 2015 season. The Southwest Superchargers put on a great show for the fans. If you haven’t seen these guys run…you’re missing out! Thanks for everyone who participated in the Dial For Dollars. We had 25 Box class entries and 33 No-Box class entries. Randy Brooks won in No-Box and Mike Badeaux won in Box.  If you’re curious how Dial For Dollars works, it’s $20 to enter. The person with the best combined dial in and reaction time wins. The winner takes half the pot and the other half goes to the always growing class points fund.

Congratulations to our class winners…

Attention Bracket Racers!!!!

In an effort to speed up the TNT nights before each bracket race we are going to make some changes to the Gamblers Race. Instead of a Gamblers Race, we will have a DIAL FOR DOLLARS run for BOX and NO BOX. Entry fee will be $50 per car (purchased at the swag shack) and the purse will be split 50% to the winner and 50% to the points fund. The track will not take a cut of this. Also each class will be run separately so that Box racers will build Box points fund, etc. You are not required to enter TNT to run the Dial for Dollars, but if you want a test run you will have to enter TNT. You will have until 10pm, at which point we will run the Dial for Dollars starting with no box. Lanes 5&6 will be dedicated to this race ONLY for the money round. At Caprock we are doing our best to give everyone plenty of time to have fun no matter what you race. Thank you all for your support!

Caprock Season Opener

We would like to thank everyone that came out and spent the weekend at Caprock Motorplex. The Grudge TnT brought out 175 cars and almost 1,000 spectators. The season opener on Saturday had just about the same turnout with 120 cars and close to 900 spectators. There was a steady stream of race fans making their way to and from the concession stand with great food and cold drinks. We have burgers, brisket sandwiches and our world renowned Pendogs. If you haven’t had a chance to try a Pendog, you haven’t lived. They’re beyond addicting. Make sure you try one or three the next time you’re at the track. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Here are some photos from race day shot by Brad Stillwell. Enjoy!
