All Races Postponed Until Further Notice

As most of you have heard we had a catastrophic fire in the control tower at the track. We lost the Timing system, PA, radios, track blower and tons of other supplies and spare parts that were in the tower. The Fire Marshall deemed the cause of the fire an electric short in the wiring. Unfortunately we learned that we did not have the proper insurance to cover the damage. We did however have some AWESOME people come out and help us clean up the mess. Shawn Vaught, Jeff Vaught, Annie with Race Wright Coatings and Cardozas Auto Repair stopped their day to bring out Andy Wilabay’s dump trailer to clear off the carnage. Dewayne Peters came out and donated his time and muscles to help out as well. Its really refreshing to have such awesome support. We are in the process of figuring everything out and will keep you guys up to date as we learn more. Thank you all!

We appreciate all of the positive calls, text, emails and comments. It truly means the world to us. Life sometimes doesn’t seem fair but we know that God doesn’t put us through anything that we can not handle. The tower will be rebuilt as soon as resources allow. We will know more after speaking with the insurance company tomorrow. We will keep our heads held high and move forward. Don’t count us out!

Brody Melton, a local Caprock racer, started a GoFundMe page to help raise funds to rebuild the tower. Thank you so much, Brody!!!

Please check back frequently for updates on the tower rebuild and any changes to the schedule or events.

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.

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.
