Every Sunday night they have grudge matches in a street racing format at Houston Motorsports Park. Its out in NW Houston so if you're coming in on I-10 it would be an easy stop to watch some racing and then drive on to the Katy/Sealy area that evening. Traffic wont be too bad so it wouldn't be that much trouble to make a small detour and shoot over. Gates open at 6pm and doesn't take them long to get started. If you happen to get into Houston today they have the Pro Mod meltdown going on tonight which is always a really good show.

Glad we are all entitled to our own opinions. Have dealt with Lingenfelter and Callaway and Hennessey is way above them!!! Hennessey does their research BEFORE they put their product on the market. Too bad some people don't do the research before spending their money!!

WOULDN'T LET ANYONE BUT HENNESSEY TOUCH ANY OF MY CARS!!!!

Just my informed option.

Grab a couple of the Camaro guys like Chris out that way and give him a proper Texas send off. Unfortunately I'm working nights so can't make it this time.

All. Sad news.Phil ( Racebum ) passed away suddenly last night. He will be greatly missed by many. I always enjoyed chatting with him.

Found another pic of his SS & ZL1 at the last show we were both at. Yes he won trophies this time too.

I nominate Racebum for COTW. RIP Phil..

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...Racebum&page=2


Phil passed away last night suddenly. He will be greatly missed. He will be honored at the SSCR2 this Saturday with a moment of silence and a gigantic rev off of 150+ Camaros. This was just his style. He loved loud & fast cars.

Maybe some of you can supply more photos of his cars.

Several of the photos and videos you have seen online from the Hennessey ZL1 package are Phils car.

RIP Phil tear up the track up in heaven
