What’s wrong with the weather? 🤔

Well. Day runs anyone?

Street Outlaws Just had an event at San Antonio Raceway last night when it was below freezing lol 😂

Bummer, I'm sorry! I know you guys need to get this thing going again.

👍

👍

If you think the track is safe to run in this weather, you have a slow ass car.....Just sayin

Noooooo

y’all all lucky it’s closed, i would’ve waxed everybody

East Texas people make me laugh.

What does it prove for everyone to get on here and talk crap about the track? The vehicles making passes are people that work there doing test passes. That have been out there busting their asses to provide you a place to race. But y’all don’t see that. Y’all just want to get on here and run your trap because you think you’re being lied to for some reason. Do you really think that the track would continue to dump money into the facility just to cancel without good reason? If you think that, you’re ignorant. I assure you that the track owners did not want to make the post to cancel the day.

Safety 1st people. Good call.

Good call

David unload it bro!

Justin Kirkham, we knew it wasn't safe and there was no reason to open the track bud.

All you had to do was come thru the gate and they would have let you run. Stop with the negativity all they did was care about everyone's well being.

Glad the track is back up and going!!!! Can't wait for better weather to watch some killer cars.

Not talking crap but this is boost weather lol, other than the freezing rain part but most of us slower boosted cars would love this! Sadly, my slow booster is not in shape rn 😞

Cool that y'all run this time of yr vs shutting down nov/March sux I don't have a car any more tho

I was one of the ones there with Gary and all the other track employees we all discussed the weather and track conditions before the decision was made to cancel. For all of those who want to talk negatively about any of us think about safety not only for yourself but the guy in the lane next to you. Yes we let those who showed up today sign a waiver and race. I myself stayed until the end and everyone had a good day and no one was injured today. Thank you Gary for a fun day

Be back next weekend! 👍🏾😎

Fire Damage Fund Raiser

We have some exciting news! As most of you know we had a fire at the track last Sunday and to make matters worse, we did not have property insurance. However, we are extremely excited to say that on Friday, June 24th we will have a special guest from Street Outlaws at the track. NOW THAT’S EXCITING! BOOSTED GT has offered to come all the way out here to make an appearance and help us raise some money to make the repairs needed to the track. We will run a no time (since we don’t have a timing system) no prep race that night. As an added bonus MEXICO RACING LEAGUE will be here to catch it all on film! We want to extend a HUGE thank you to Henchmen Racing to thank for making this happen!

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.
