  • Looks like Tulsa Raceway Park is done.

    Word is it has sold and it is not known if it will remain a racetrack or not.

    That will probably impact where Drag Week will be held in 2012, what other tracks are near Tulsa and Grand Bend ( and NO Amarillo is not a racetrack!!)

              First of all, Tulsa is a kickass facility and it will truly be a shame if it is closed. Damn...


              Second, Grand Bend is a LOOOOONG way from Tulsa (it's in Canada, eh). Possibly you meant Great Bend?

              Noble, OK is just outside Oklahoma City and is a kickass track. Now that St. Louis & Memphis are back up and running, maybe we could consider St. Louis, Noble, Memphis, Bowling Green and back to St. Louis?

                Maybe start at Great Bend and then Noble,Ardmore etc and circle back to GB.My first visit to Tulsa was in 1979 for the AHRA SpringNationals.Went with Dan and Dave Neely.Partied in the holiday Inn lounge with Bob Brandt and some othe Prudhomme crew guys.Hate to see ANY track close.

                    heh.....

                    As an announcer, I have an especially fond memory of Tulsa. In 2010, TRP hosted a bikini contest and a Pro Mod / Outlaw 10.5 race broke out. While on the microphone, a stunning, young, well endowed young blonde gal sat on my lap, wearing nothing but some well placed strands of dental floss. Throwing caution to the wind, I turned on the microphone and did my best Santa Clause impression....


                    "So, young lady, what would you like Santa to bring you for Christmas," I said.

                    I stuck the microphone in her face, and without flinching, pausing or checking her whereabouts, she replied, completely and absolutely amplified for all to hear: "A great big dildo."


                    Never, and I mean NEVER have I been at a loss for words on the microphone (ask anyone who has been to a race I have announced) but this particular response left me looking like a deer in the headlamps.


                    Later that night I consumed MASSIVE quantities of Jaegermeister!

                          Ron, you should have said "Will a, uh microphone suffice?"

                            Ya know, when we were leaving Amarillo I was thinking, "how can these guys be so excited about this track?"

                            Well, now I know, and I feel like an idiot for ever thinking it.

                            ANY track is better than NO track.

                            I'm still at a loss thinking that one as nice as Tulsa's would better serve anyone by not existing. I guess that's how it goes.
