LoneStar is Racing Saturday, April 30th; USMTS Swing Postponed

Kilgore TX (4/27/16) by DarinShort.com. This coming Saturday, April 30th at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) was to feature the third leg of a weekend USMTS swing. However, the bulk of those teams travel in excess of 12 hours, and the current weather forecast doesn't look favorable for racing, so all three of the USMTS swing events have been postponed (makeup date to be announced).

However, LoneStar Speedway will still attempt to host a complete night of points division racing including the Modifieds, Factory Stocks and the Limited Modifieds. The FWD 4-Cylinder division will round out the 4-division racing card.

After the April 9th rained out as well, LoneStar will resume the previously advertised "Modified Mania" for the high-powered LoneStar Modifieds racing for $1,200 to win. The Limited Modifieds will race for $500 to win, the Factory Stock feature winner will take home $300 and the new FWD 4-Cylinder division winner will collect $100. Complete purse breakdown is posted under 'resources' at the track website - like all LSS events. Non-qualifier money will be paid in each division, as always.

There are no entry fees or increased pit pass fees for this event. And grandstand tickets will be dropped down to $12 for adults, $10 seniors/active military, $5 kids (ages 6-11), and all pit passes for all ages are $30.

Note that the Winged Modifieds that were originally part of Modified Mania will not be available on April 30.

In the event that weather does roll in, then at least we don't have to worry about sending National drivers back home with empty pockets and large fuel bills to pay. Our local teams can be notified within a few hours of a possible rainout without incurring any travel expense. So, we will see what transpires by Saturday morning, and maybe we can still sneak a race in. Stay tuned to our FB page, the track website and the racing message boards for near-instant updates.

RaceCeivers are required for drivers; however mufflers at LoneStar Speedway are not required (unless required by your Series), so race fans can hear the cars the way nature intended for them to be heard!

Here are the quick facts for the Saturday April 30th LoneStar Speedway Modified Mania event:

-Pits open by 3pm, Grandstands open by 5:30pm, LSS divisions Draw Cut off at 6:30pm sharp, LSS Drivers Meeting at 6:45pm, Track Packing and Hot laps at 7:00pm and Racing to follow immediately after Hot Laps.

-General Admission just $12 (ages 12 to 64)

-Kids (ages 6-11) just $5

-Ages 5 and under admitted free with adult admission

-Active Military or Senior (Ages 65+): General Admission $10

The LoneStar Modifieds will be racing for $1,200 to win - and there is no entry fee or increased pit pass due from competitors for this race.

Rounding out the full-plate of modified divisions in Modified Mania will be the ultra-competitive Limited Modifieds, with their feature winner receiving $500. The full night of racing rounds out a complete program for the Factory Stocks, paying $300 to win, and the new FWD 4-Cylinder division pays $100 to win.
