I’m way south! I’m in Santa Rosa, which is close to Harlingen. Corpus is at least two hours from me.

Cool, I use to drive to Edinburg to drag race. Did some jobs in McAllen as well. You are about as South as you can get and still be in the US. lol

Edinburg track has only gotten worse over time. They don’t put any money into it. I took my lightning out there and couldn’t find traction all night. I dumped a ton of money into suspension and tires last year right before the ‘rona happened. They were closed for a long while then opened with a lot of restrictions. Haven’t been back since.

Thanks for the invite! I don’t have Facebook though…
