  1. In the late 40's and early 50's there was a dirt track located in Channelview near the intersection of Sheldon Rd and Bear Bayou. It was active until about 1955 at the latest because I learned to drive on the old abandoned track in about 1958. Anyhow, it was only open on weedends and mostly stock cars built by local junkyard operators raced there but occassionally midget races and modifieds ran. These were mostly drivers from out of town (Houston was considered a long way off from Channelview in the 50's before I-10 was built.) I cannot remember any drivers who raced there but am sure some of the ones you have mentioned made the circuit.
  2. Houston Housing Authority pays Pace Foundation and Soho Housing Partners for the development.
  3. I drive deliveries into Channelview every morning. I've noticed these buildings scattered along between the beltway and Sheldon rd that look like bomb shelters. I first noticed three on Appelt Rd just before Jacinto Port, two in plain view and one behind some brush. I recently noticed there were more. If you drive east on Jacinto Port going toward Sheldon to your left behind the brush, there are more in the distance (some covered by more brush) at the road there are even "driveways" leading to them (now fenced off). They look like they've been there for quite some time. Anyone have any info? Cant find anything online.
