Will be looking forward to seeing everyone at the TEXAS GRAND held at Houston Raceway Park. It's a big show, and many of the fastest racers from the Houston area and beyond will be there.

It's always fun watching Howard Willis and Robby Starnes run. Oh and I think Goerge White will be there.

they ran 52 heat races thursday night! only the top 2 qualify for the dash, with only the top 5 from the dash to qualify for the feature. sounds like a long night!

Well it turned out to be the Howard Willis and Robby Starnes show, with Robby taking the win. Pretty good race. Was that a Chapman car in 3rd, he almost got 2nd away from Howard?

Yeah that was a Chapman car that ran third with a Jackson Motor Works powerplant in it.

Dont know why Brooks lined up wrong go figure.

The power was there to pass Willis but I think Howards car was better in the turns.

From the infeild it looked as if Brooks was to tight to get the car on the bottom. Howard had a good run but in my opinion nobody had anything for robbie. He wasscary fast.

Yeah Robbie had it dialed in no question. Howard or Brooks had nothing for him. Will HRP have that kick off Feb. race that they had last year ?

He lined up that way because he said the guy wrote it on the board that way. Of course david at Bush Hog loved the chance to bust a chapman car down a few spots.

I understand, not looking too open an old wound either. I know Chapman was the IMCA tech guy at Big H for a while and some folks did not like his ways.

We never had any problems with him.
