Anyone ever run at San Antonio Raceway? Wondering about track condition and how strict they are with the posted IHRA rules; its a few hours from me and I would hate to get booted after one run.

I was there this past summer, & they were pretty strict. I ran 11.54 & they told me that if I ran 11.49 I'd need a cage, or get booted. I've been waiting for cooler temps to make sure I run my quickest time when they kick me out.

Thats what I was afraid of; long drive for one run. Anyone had luck with strips in SE Texas?

Haven't been to any others. Curvy tracks are my thing, though it is hard to beat $20 for all the runs you want. Let me know if you head out to SAR, & I may be able to get a few people together.

Hey guys, i am in laredo. If you are going, to san antonio let me know. They just opened a track here but its not that good. Needs a little bit of work but its fun. 10 bucks to run. They are not strict at all and can be dangerous.

Went tonight. What a joke -no track prep. I was breaking loose in second gear with traction R mode nannies on to the point I had to let off on several runs. All the cars were getting horrible 60' and g. Hint: go on a big night were they will definitely prep the track. The left lane is supposedly faster and the right lane has a couple bumps that are not fun.

I was thinking of driving up, but rain is on the forecast. Are you guys running or just spectating?

I know of 2 that will be running (weather permitting). I might be able to make it (weather permitting), & will run if possible.

Are you guys still heading out for this? Unfortunately forecasts are definitely calling for rain all morning.

There is one for sure, Ted in black '09. Not likely me though - too much family stuff.

@tre - got your pm, will email you on Monday.

As much as I wanted to come out today, something unfortunately came up. Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet some of you guys at a future event.
