It sucks guys, we're being squeezed out in a lot of places.

We still have HMP ( Houston Motorsports Park ) a awesome 1/8 mile track but it's not the same as the 1/4 mile.
HMP has seemed sketchy lately. Have gone there a few times when HRP has been closed or didn't want to make the full trip to Baytown. Prep has been questionable and seen a lot of slipping and sliding.

Yeah, I haven't been to HMP in a while, I know on Sundays they would prep good, If HMP becomes so so, then I really have no other place to go to without driving to San Antonio Raceway, which I don't really want to drive 2.5 hours each way.

Hey Mean Cat, good thread. It's not a good sign for the sport that the 3rd most populated metro plex in the country that is known to have the fastest street cars in the country will have no 1/4 mile tracks to run at.

Hard to blame the owners of Houston Raceway for accepting the big offer to buy the track and land, but it still sucks.

I'll make the switch over to Sunday's at HMP and will head over to SATX once a month or every other month or so, they have some Friday and Saturday events so maybe just stay over and run both days over there from time to time.

Next May when they tear Houston Raceway down I hope I don't ever have to drive down that road again, want to remember it the way it was and not demolished.

Hey Nate, yeah it sucks our 1/4 track is closing. HMP will have to do until hopefully a new one is built somewhere else around Houston.
I might have to join you once in a while when you go to SA track.
