Unhappy Tulsa Raceway Park Sold

TRP just sold and is going to be demolished. Figured I'd share since some of you got to enjoy it on drag week. My favorite track. I'm very sad

Fucking sucks. Only up side imo is Wichita might get some of that business and Wichita is now ran by a heads up guy that was actually using Tulsa as a guideline to how good he wants Wichita's track to be.

Well, Wichita is definitely turning around. Saw a 4.33 1/8 mile pass on Saturday and a bunch of personal bests for people. Got to see farmtruck do a giant nearly on the bumper wheelie. It's going to do nothing but get better too.

No matter what, the power of the dollar will always prevail. Was a really kick ass track to run on.

MOKAN DRAGWAY STEPS UP!!
Due to circumstances beyond our control the Mopar Point Series World Finals will not be held at Tulsa Raceway Park. TRP will be closing their gates October 23rd. This leaves the series short the final event for point accumulation.

Carl Blanton and his staff have graciously provided a final for the series. We will be traveling to Asbury on November 5th for our last race of our season.

Carl will use the same format as the season opener. We are very blessed that Mokan has provided this for our series. We need to make a strong appearance at Mokan for the final.

Please, adjust your plans and join us at Mokan! It will still be a day full of fun! If you have any questions feel free to send me an e-mail.Thank you for all the support you have given.

Lexie Fowler
reason number 7,480 I <3 the Blanton's and Mokan

Luckily the story about tulsas track has a happier ending that KCIR does
copied and pasted from another forum:


Great news!

Tulsa Raceway Park and the City of Owasso, Oklahoma, are proud to announce a partnership with two local prominent businessmen and racers, Todd Martin and Keith Haney.

On Friday, November 18th, a media announcement was made that detailed the partnership that will revive the NEW Tulsa Raceway Park for several more years through a multi-year lease deal with current owners of the land and facility.

Todd Martin and Keith Haney have formed T&K Management Group, LLC, to operate the track for several more years. Both Todd and Keith are local businessmen, as well as racers themselves. Both men race on circuits at a national level such as the ADRL, NHRA, and IHRA drag racing competitions. Keith Haney is also the sponsor of the Top Sportsman class for the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, as well as a major marketing partner for TRP in past years and will continue to do so through his involvement with the Suburban Chevrolet Bracket Series.

Todd Martin stated, “Keith and I are committed to breaking boundaries when it comes to the entertainment headed to this facility. With Keith’s deep roots in this community and our passion for drag racing, we are both happy to be here making this announcement to keep drag racing alive in Tulsa, Oklahoma.” Martin added, “You can count on Tulsa Raceway Park having a new and exciting feel.”

Keith Haney concurred and said his passion is drag racing and his ties to the community through his racing sponsorship and his own interest in drag racing led him to this decision to become a part of the new and improved Tulsa Raceway Park.

For 2012, there will be literally something for everyone in the community. Carnivals, mud races, monster trucks, jet cars, concerts, NHRA Divisional event, Harley Drags, bracket racing, and of course, the legendary ThrowDown in T-Town which will remain a free ticket event for spectators.

Because of the reputation for the superb quality of the racing surface, Tulsa Raceway Park is already a proven testing ground for many professional drag racers, which include former NHRA Pro Stock Champion, Mike Edwards, as well as Allen Johnson, Dean Goforth, Cary Goforth, and many more well known names in the drag racing field.

We are pleased to add additional activities on the grounds that will grow the entertainment value for Tulsa Raceway Park fans, racers, spectators, and the community. Tulsa Raceway Park holds true to the values that drag racers and fans should support those who support the track. We look forward to growing sponsorship and advertising at the track, which will enhance local business economy.
Tulsa Raceway Park is a ¼ mile track that runs both 1/8th and ¼ mile events throughout the racing season. Look for the 2012 racing and event schedule to be released soon.


You can also meet Keith and Todd at the PRI show in Orlando, beginning November 30th. Tulsa Raceway Park and Stroupe Race Cars will share booth space and be available to answer questions regarding sponsorship and advertising opportunities.


For questions or comments, please contact Marketing Director, Ginger Martin, at Ginger@TulsaRacewayPark.com.

Dunno what it'll be like, probably slick for a little while. They are grinding the surface right now so it's going to need to have rubber put back down on it. When it does come around, I imagine it's going to work rather well.

In addition to the Grinding of the Track, a brand new surface has been laid thanks to LaFarge.
