Cracking Tomato

Cracking Tomato

I have always had awesome tomatoes. I live in the Tomatoes are cracking at top and making a circular cracking track all the way down the tomato.

North East part of Texas and always plant Better Boys. This year, every tomato that I have planted and that is getting orange, not ripe yet, has started splitting from the top to the bottom. I'ts almost like a bug has started at the top and make his entire way around the tomato itself and left deep dark marks in the tomato. There is no place to even cut it and eat it! I spray for bugs, so what could it be. I planted late this year, first week in June, is that it?
