    TWS closed

    This was just emailed out via clubregistration or PDS.

    Not sure if NASA will attempt to schedule another track or if MSRH is our season ender, we should hear soon I assume.

    I just received a phone call from Bill Mather letting me know that TWS is suspending all track events for the remainder of 2017. Lack of interest in the 1.8 configuration by clubs, and other issues have caused him to come to this decision.

    Thank you for your loyalty to the PDS program over the years. Our students and instructors, along with the leadership of the program over the years (of which Pam and I have been a part of for a very short time), have developed a program and a community that is a joy to be a part of.

    PDS will continue. As Joey gets plans underway, I will keep you posted.

    I just saw that on FB. Rick from the Drivers Edge said the track is closed as of now.

    I also saw some pics showing that a huge landslide went over the barrier and all over the front straight coming out of t15.

    Now we really can't blame them for taking the easy option by storing flood cars there for $$$ vs trying clean up that mess and barely skate by with the 1.8 no one wants to run.

    I'm sure many of you have seen what has become of TWS but if you haven't, the pictures are pretty amazing. TWS has never been so busy, and there is much sadness...

    It is amazing that this is just one of three sites apparently with all the damaged cars. I wonder how many are actually at TWS.

    yeah Jay sent me a youtube video. I have heard the dragstrip in Baytown is another place-didn't know there were three. I wondered how/who is keeping track of all of them. Then how/when they would be auctioned off. Wonder if they would try to do it onsite instead of spending hundred grands on towing.

    If $8 per car per day is true, they are printing money housing these cars!
