Bump bump time to shine her up!!
Looking Forward to this one. It's shaping up to be an awesome looking inaugural event. I think this might be the start of something beautiful!!!
Bump from Page 7
Southwest Junior Fuelers Association just announced their Season Finals Race will be held at the Texas State Championships!
That makes the 3 biggest racing associations in the south along with the season finals for the Outlaw Fuel Altereds Association, and the Texas Blown Fuel Association all at one race!
On a side note: To anyone looking to stay at the track on Friday or Saturday night. If that doesn't work for you, or you want to be about 30 miles north of there, you can park your rigs in my shop parking lot. It's safe & secure, about 1 mile off I-35 in San Marcos near the Outlet Malls. There's enough room for a truck stop here, all paved, and the Sheriffs Dept roll through a couple times a night since this is the end of the county line. Contact me via Private Message if that's something you want to do, and tell your racing buddies who don't have HAMB accounts that the offer is there.
Cant wait !!
I want to share a message received from Race Photographer Extraordinaire and my cousin Connell Miller, who sent out info by e-mail about the TSC to his nation-wide list of hot rod and drag race buddies and heroes. This is fantastic!
I'm forwarding to you a response I received to the e-mail I sent to a number of folks alerting them to the YouTube and FaceBook video of the hot TSC television ads you and Marc Bane of the Rebels Race Club produced. This was the first reply, received within 20 minutes of sending it out. I think you'll recognize his name.... -C

Got the attention of Big Daddy
On another note, how about the H.A.M.B.'rs who are coming to SAR to either race or show your car (or if your just coming to sell stuff at the swap meet) how about posting a picture of the ride you will be in so we can meet up with fellow H.A.M.B.'rs throughout the day. My ride won't be ready, but me and my video camera will be.
Get Big Daddy to bring over a couple of Swamp Rats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
kool looks like the promoter is gonna cash in... smart man
Too late for this year. But next year, there have already been discussions between the owner of the recently recreated Rat Patrol AA/FD (that will be at the TSC this year) and Mr Garlits about running match races . The Rat Patrol, of course, was built for the express purpose of tryng to beat the Swamp Rat. Wouldn't that be a pair up at TSC-11, a Swamp Rat and the Rat Patrol, havin' it out in the 21st century!
I heard he was paying it all out in Prize Money to the Racers!
Well be there !
Wow - Isn't that just to cool.
Here's what I'm bringing
I'm coming,be drivin the Brown&McCord Jr./Fuel car #150.Stop by and say hi.
I'll be bringing what used to be the worlds fastest striping brush.
Hey ChevyRat, who did that uuugly striping your truck!? I need to add somethig to the sides of that bed.
It was some sorry prick named Mickey just south of Austin.
We'll talk about some additions here soon. Catch you at the races.
it's MiKEY not Mickey. Hate that mouse. Now if it was a Rat, alrighty then.
You're right. Did not mean to insult the mouse.

Hey Doc, see you Friday!!!!!
Good to see you're making the trip Doc. Maybe I can get that re-match Friday night.
Max Cackle Photos will be there covering the event from head to toe!
Should be an amazing show!!!!
Weather looks great for the Texas State Championship Race this Saturday at San Antonio Raceway. The forecast models agree that the sky will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy, with a morning low near 60 and an afternoon high around 85. Due to the presence of a weak cold front in northwest Texas, the forecasters give a 20% chance of precipitation. The National Weather Service analysis sees only a very slight chance of rain as far south as San Antonio, with most of the isolated rain clouds expected to be much farther to the north and east of our race.
But with any outdoor event, as you know, you pick yer date and then throw the dice. If the event does get splashed by showers so badly that we can't complete the race, then Sunday the 24th of October will be the rain-date. Don't have any reason at all to think that we'll need it, but it's just good planning this time of year to have the options already on the table in case they might be needed.
