PLEASANTON -- The late Chris Newsome of Manning Safety Services in Jourdanton and Dr. Joe Gonzales were good friends. In fact, Chris was one of the first to come on board as a track sponsor when Joe and Jackie Gonzales jumped feet-first into something completely new to them, running a quarter-mile dirt track in partnership with Jim and Eric Knudtson.

Even after Chris died during the off season, his widow, Joanna, kept Manning involved with the track as a sponsor for the second season under the new ownership. But both Dr. Gonzales and Joanna were looking for a way to honor Chris and keep Manning involved with one of his favorite activities. That led to a multi-year deal between I-37 Raceway and Manning for title sponsorship at the renamed “I-37 Raceway at Newsome Motor Park.”

“Some people saw the release announcing the renaming of the track to reflect the title sponsorship and interpreted it to mean the track had been sold,” Gonzales said this week. “I got a lot of calls wanting to know if we had sold the track -- and why. The answer is we have not sold the track and don’t plan to sell it.

The next race night at I-37 will be April 16.
