They're still racing right now.

At the Oct 1 bracket race they announced they are adding another bracket race on Oct 22 that will count towards 2017 points that way if it is closed they can send a team to the ET finals in 2017. From what I know, its in the lawyers hands now.

I really hope that they do not close their doors. I have some great memories out there dating back to the late 80's up until around 2005-06. It is one of my favorite tracks. I remember many Friday nights racing at Texas Raceway until midnight then heading out to Astro to name a few until sun up.

Probably would be, if browsers didn't store usernames and passwords for you.

Texas Raceway will eventually shutter its doors. City has plans for it to be housing community with shopping. Turning it into a mini Mansfield. Tarrant County College has also bought land near there...likely to be a campus. Already bigger sewage lines are being installed west of the track to accommodate the housing. Kennedale Speedway will more than likely close also. Old Cowtown already rezoned.

However it will take time for all the pieces to come together maybe a year or two. However look at Texas World Speedway. It was suppose to be bulldozed summer of 2015 and still running into next year.

Enjoy Texas Raceway while its there. Otherwise its a trek to North Star for all the southern DFW folk.

yeah, Ennis is now my closest track. It was nice to be 10 mins away, even though I havent raced there in years, watching was fun.

I went to the last promod event at Kennedale, and too me the track looked more run down than previous years. Maybe because it was towards the end of the season, who knows.

Also a certain demographic that was in heavy attendance thought that Friday night at the drags was the proper time to show off who could bring the loudest sound system to the stands. These weren't boom boxes, these were DJ equipment grade, one dude had his running off a portable generator. Towards the end of the night the one in the stands near me, brought out the microphone and started giving commentary about his crew, and other people in the stands. The track officials took way too long to tell them to shut it down.

I love it how cities zone out tracks, and then wonder why they suddenly have a street racing problem.

You are expecting shortsighted politicians to actually think about consequences. Won't happen.

We called it Kennebelly for a reason. I've only felt unsafe there a few times but I guess it helped that I knew many of the racers. That and I'm sure a lot of the gamblers made plenty of money on my car.

We have become a society of cunts. Why would the track want to fuck with people paying to get in, and secondarily involve themselves with criminal investigations?

I'll bet if you'd ever had a car stolen you'd be more understanding and agreeable.

If my car were stolen I would want the police to do everything in their power to catch the thief. But as a business owner, I would not likely allow police on my private property to go fishing for such.
