Over the weekend, I posted a quick gallery of some of the competitors from Pirelli World Challenge’s stop at Circuit of The Americas. With temps over 90 degrees much of the time, fans, drivers, and the media braved the elements to enjoy some damn good racing action.
A week after Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Gulf coast, crippling America’s fourth largest city and killing dozens, the country is still feeling its effects.

Last month, a week-long feud between two people ended in a shooting at Texas World Speedway during a non-racing event.

A chaotic scene broke out Tuesday at a Nissan dealership in Texas when two bounty hunters discovered the fugitive they were tracking inside, according to news reports. A brief scuffle inside a glass office between the hunters and the fugitive led to a shootout, leaving all three dead.
At first glance, the May 22, 1997 issue of The Big Bend Sentinel, a local newspaper in West Texas, appears unremarkable. “Good Luck, MHS Class of ‘97,” a banner reads on the front page, just above the nameplate. Five class photos of graduating seniors from Marfa High School are followed by stories announcing…

Other cars with large rear cargo space, including SUVs and minivans, can also be used for that purpose, including one tan SUV stolen from Bryan, Texas, reports KBTX. Sadly, that didn’t deter the thieves, who tried…
The Texas senate just voted to get rid of the state’s mandatory vehicle safety inspection, The Houston Chronicle reports.

Other than a weekend flea market that draws a decent crowd, things are pretty quiet at the corner of U.S. 183 and FM 812 in southeast Austin. There’s a VFW post, a small Circle K gas station and scattered Mexican restaurants.
