we lovingly referred to it as "jailhead" after getting caught up there a few times. i remember being in a truck and hitting that big field to gtfo at least once.

Is Railhead in SE Fort Worth? Seem to remember cruising it but it was dead that night. Might have been the same night we tried Miller Brewing.

Speaking of mail truck era and newberry.. there was a green fox body with silver or tan ground effects I can’t remember that said “Texas performance” on the windshield that didn’t hook up for shit but basically beat everything including bikes.. you could really feel it as it passed you

Throw down some VHT in your lane for good measure.

Indeed. Best one for me was a time at Newberry when the cops showed. There's always that one champion who takes one for the team and somehow grabs the attention of every cop who shows. One such character did a hill climb up the embankment onto 635. Took a few switchback maneuvers, but he did make it. At least two or three Crown Vics behind and they got about half way before giving up. We were all leaving in a hurry and when we saw that, just had to stop and watch. Looking back that place was dangerous a/f to race. Cars parked bumper-to-bumper on both sides, no shoulder all the way down the street.

shit was awesome back then. total disregard for safety and common sense, and just being a dumbfuck kid.

lining up three wide before the curve on royal. that curve and shit tires. i was a fucking idiot back then. a girl someone was with got shot in the foot on royal one night if i remember correctly.

i was always partial to northwest hwy by the liquor store. nice long straight with plenty of room. regal row was a close second, but regal row and newberry were sketchy as fuck though. speaking of shootings, i also remember the white limo that homeboy popped up through the sunroof firing an ak in the air.

really only watched the faster cars at white swan.

Those times created memories that stick with us forever. I can dig that.

Got blocked in one night at Post and Paddock (I think we were actually off of Avenue J). Cops wrote tickets for anything and everything, and arrested quite a few folks. We were all stuck there for hours.

I swear there were some races we went to over by Alliance airport where there were cops posted up one the main road in, maybe 1/2 mile from the actual racing, and they never busted us. It was like they were cool and just let us do our thing all night.

I remember a night behind Frys/incredible universe two Mustangs were lined up ready to hit when a cop car came off of Matlock lights off trying to creep down the “track.” Maybe they saw the cop, maybe they didn’t. Anyways as soon as they launched the cop threw on his disco lights. The two racers went AROUND the cop towards Matlock and booked it, and everyone scrambled. Another cop also crept down towards the I20 service road exit to block people in. The car I was in was fortunate to get out, I don’t know how. What a night...

Does anyone else remember this?

That happened a couple of times back there. That place never lasted long. I had just lined up my SVO one night and was waiting for the other guy to get up there when headlights came over the crest in the distance. I was about to do a burn out but decided to wait to make sure it wasn't a cop. And it was a cop. lol He turned his lights on and pulled up beside me facing the wrong way and I simply drove off hoping he wouldn't follow me in the scatter. He didn't. Parked the SVO for the night and rolled back out in my 69 Charger. Lol good times.

We were out in front of the liquor store on NW Hwy on night when a black Fox stang spanked a green 67 Firebird. The guy in the Firebird decided to make a U-turn and come hauling ass back down, but there were 2 cars lined up to race in the west bound lanes. The Firebird couldn't stop and managed to swerve over into eastbound lanes but ran over two girls in the process. I think they only ended up with some broke bones. They were very lucky that night.

Shortly after that is when that drunk DJ(?) ran over someone and killed them at the same spot and pretty much ruined the street racing scene for a while.

IIRC soon after the Hastys incident cops shows up at Emerald with paddy wagons and arrested a few hundred people and (I think) was the start of racing becoming a felony.

That guy was leaving the Spirit Grille in Irving. Owners of the bar got sued, causing one of the partners to bail out of the bar business, and instituted a 2 drink limit at their other restaurant. I can't remember if they won or lost the lawsuit, but I could find out.

I may or may not have ran from the cops and gotten away from the liq store on my bike in summer of 99

Probably was it. He had a late 60’s model firebird that was a goldish green color. His name was Wade and lived off of park row in Arlington. Last time I drove by his house the car was still sitting in the carport. This was about 15 years ago.
