San Antonio Raceway – The Clash of The Titans

This weekend we headed out to the San Antonio Raceway to watch The Clash of the Titans. There were some pretty sweet cars out there, but not too many of the “big boys” came out to play. I figured it probably had something to do with the weather as no one was really sure if it would be storming. It did rain for a short period of time and everyone headed for cover underneath the bleachers, but the cars were back out and running in no time after the track was cleaned up. Don’t get me wrong, there were some pretty bad ass cars out there this weekend that were definitely worth checking out.

There were a few disappointments at The Clash this go-round, the first being it was $25.00 a head for spectators. I don’t recall paying that much when The Clash was here earlier in the year. The other disappointment (which was completely my fault) being that we always end up going out to the track way too early and we’re ready to go early in the afternoon – which means we totally end up missing what we came for in the first place; the pro eliminations.

One of my favorite cars out there is San Antonio local Mike Murillo. His car is just nasty and beautiful. He had twin turbos in the trunk of his car and just recently moved them up to the front. While he’s not hitting the mark just yet because of this – he’s still a bad-boy with a bad ass toy for sure. We captured some great pictures of his car both on and off the track as well as many others. We’ll be posting them up in a gallery soon, so keep an eye out for the update.

Aside from the turnout not being as good as the last Clash and the rain and heat just draining us, we had a great time and watched some really good runs.

If you’re local to San Antonio, Texas or in any of the surrounding cities, I recommend coming out to the San Antonio Raceway some time and checking out some of the races it has to offer. Mind you, it’s certainly not the Houston Raceway Park but our race track here in San Antonio is definitely fun to come out to.
