It's over. :(

Recommended Posts

Mike Globe with PDS just sent out an email, forwarding information he got from Bill Mather at TWS.

 

 

All track activity for the remainder of 2017 is suspended. Bill cited lack of interest in the 1.8 circuit as one of the reasons. (In other news, the sky is blue.)

 

This is the end. :(

With all the "found money" pouring in for daily parking fees of flood cars, they will probably back into enough money to actually build a race track.

Nice Pic. Wonder what percent mold spores the environmental test will show now. Great place to build some new houses!

 

Seeing TWS used like this pretty much confirms my suspicion that the owners didn't raise near enough money to build a $500MM housing development on the land. The pennies spent for long drawn out 'progress' and shutting down the track was likely just a stall tactic to keep the current investors from bailing out. While the found money for flood car storage is great I kind of doubt the track would ever get restored under the current ownership...however I still hold out hope that when the found money runs out and they still haven't raised the capital to develop, the owners will eventually sell to a group that will revitalize the track or at least re-open and trickle maintain it like they did for the last couple decades. It may take years for that to materialize but NDTTRUTP...or something like that. TWS may be on life support but its by no means dead based on what we're seeing.

ATM Copart lists 739 cars at the TEXASWORLDSPEEDWAY 'lot'.  Including a '67 and a '73 Corvette!  Looks like many of the cars have a WL for WaterLine marked on them.

Tempted to get one of these trucks as a tow vehicle. Anyone have experience with water damaged trucks? More work hassle than it's worth? Many seem to have fairly low water lines.

 

If it's been totaled as a flood car, chances are it will be titled as "destruction / parts only" - as in, you can't ever register it for street use.
