I have no idea, but we have heard this so many times, its almost like the "cry wolf" thing.

I'll treat it as my last ride there, just like I did in July of last year. I hope it stays open. Even though its in horrible condition, I have a lot of fond memories there and will continue to go back as long as its open.

I guess what I should have said is, my last run at TWS (Texas World Speedway). I do think the track will close, but I'm getting out of track days after TWS (Texas World Speedway) and Cresson on June 16th ( make-up date for a rain-out) 5 years and 45 track days, man it's been the best hobby I every had. Only regret is I just couldn't get to the two minute mark at TWS (Texas World Speedway), not really even close.

If they were to have some "Parade Laps" at noon, I would be there for sure, but that seems to be a thing of the past. And even if they want to do them, often there are crashes that need to be cleared and time runs short. So have there been any parade laps recently?

Yeah, the Silverwing is a fun scooter, BUT I don't think I want to drop into turn one at a 100 MPH on the thing

Haven't seen that in a long time.

Run the fuzzy. With good tires, I would have no problems running mine.

So the guy at the TWS (Texas World Speedway) entrance gate told me this morning they are not shutting down TWS (Texas World Speedway) afterall and there is another track day on Labor day plus others thru December. No one at Ridesmart could confirm or deny.. The rumors of TWS (Texas World Speedway)' demise are being greatly exaggerated.
