  1. Plus Texas could seat more which meant more ticket sales which meant more money.
  2. Years ago I heard a rumor of someplace that let the dot tie into their scales. I don’t know where it was, it wasn’t local to me. I think I heard there were some legal challenges to it based on entrapment?
  3. I caught his video about a week ago and that got me even more excited than I already was. The last nascar race there was when I was about 20. I was a fan of racing but never knew how special that track was till much later. Uphill on one side downhill on the other!
  4. So here is a question. I know cabovers are notorious backbreakers. And I know long wheelbase helps to smooth out a ride. But wouldn’t a long wheelbase cab over just put all that bounce on the front axel where you ride?
  5. I got tickets for the Aug 30&31 races and really getting excited. I haven’t been this worked up for a vacation in 5or6 years since I went to Fort Worth stock show. Of course this will be my first real vacation since then.
  6. We had a guy here in western ny that for a few years would pull his pulling tractor onto the track with a team of draft horses. It was a pretty cool sight seeing them come out onto the track. I think they used to pull national back in the day. Hans Boxler and later Hans jr the tractor was called ‘the special’. I haven’t seen it run in at least 5or6 years and Hans sr passed away a few years ago.
  7. My father had a 715 gas back in the day. He put a 300 gallon tank on an old trailer frame to fuel it with. He got the 1440 in 79or80 and I was born in 76 so I don’t remember much of that old 715 but I think that machine turned him off to gas engines and he let everyone know how much of a gas hog it was.
  8. Ouch. Looks a little dry around there too.
  9. That cattle trailer for longhorns maybe? I’ve never been around em but I would imagine they need a little extra room.
  10. X2 as soon as I read it I heard them in my head.
  11. I haven’t been in 15-20 years. Usually running low on vacation time from the off farm job by this time. I haven’t been in so long I don’t even think about it anymore. I took some time off this week for a family reunion sat and could probably have swung out there if I thought to plan it but at this point I guess it’ll be at least another year or ten. I kinda understand the desire to move it around but they had so much infrastructure at the Lott farm it seems stupid to leave. Just from an outside point of view
  12. Only thing I see missing is food. Lot of fire depts around here do chicken bbq for fundraisers. Best chicken bbq comes from fire dept! Couple towns over just started their annual rodeo(minus last year or two😠) they do a beef bbq. Take your pick on alcohol or not but food is a must. I like the idea of discussion on “why yellow “
