Caprock Motorplex – Dirty South No Prep Race

The best drag racing I have seen at Caprock yet. Racers included Shannon Coan, Mike Murillo, Kayla Morton, Chris Hamilton, Ken Jo Kelley, Kye Kelley, Rowdy James and many others. There was an overflow fan presence and many racing vendor booths and t-shirts and caps galore. Thanks to Gary Gardenhire, Mike Murillo, Kye Kelley, Chris Hamilton, Elise Coons and “Eat Race Die” Productions for one helluva good time. Penwell Knights Raceway at Caprock Motorplex is now THE place to be for drag racing in West Texas!


First Bracket Race At Caprock

Saturday was the first bracket race for Penwell Knights Raceway at Caprock Motorplex. Lots of racers, a good crowd and perfect weather. Congratulations to Wes Snodgrass and Landon Thompson for winning in box and no box. Auden Gamino won the Mean Street season opener and set the class record with a 5.28. David Soules picked up the win in Motorcycle while Randy Russel won in Easy Street. Cody Jackson knows who to put the money on! He won and Jace Head was Runner Up in JR Dragsters.

Caprock Opener – TNT

Caprock Motorplex had it’s opening season start Saturday with a Test N’ Tune and Fun n’ Grudge match. There were a large number of  race cars and bikes, and a spectator crowd like I’ve never seen before. The folks in Concessions got slammed with hungry and thirsty spectators for hours and the line at times wrapped all the way back around the stands. Spectators, racers and tailgaters were all the way down to the 1/4 mile line, sometimes two rows deep. Racers were still pulling in to the track at four o’clock in the afternoon!
