$3,000 to win LoneStar SUPR FIRECRACKER 40 – SATURDAY, JULY 4

Kilgore TX (6/16/15) by DarinShort.com. Who could forget the fireworks (both on and off the track) the last time the SUPR Late Model series took to the 1/3 mile high-banks of LoneStar Speedway (LSS) in Kilgore. So the big question is, will a rematch ensue at the next LSS Series stop on July 4th at the $3,000 to win LoneStar Firecracker 40.

Fans can expect another standout field of SUPR Late Model drivers, such as LSS Memorial Day 40 winner Tyler Erb, current point’s leader Jon Mitchell, Rob Litton, Kody Barber, B.J. Robinson, Ronny Adams, Danny Zimmerman, Timothy Culp, Kevin Sitton, Ray Moore, Patrik Daniel, Shane Hebert, Rick Duke Jr., Allen Tippen, Robert Metz Jr., David LaFleur, Robbie Stuart, Zach McMillan, Derek Perkins, Austin Theiss; plus several more of the regions’ top drivers.

LoneStar's jumbo-sized SUPR Late Model purse structure for the July 4 event is as follows: $3,000 - $1,500 - $1,200 - $1,000 - 800 - 700 - 600 - 550 - 500 - 475 - 450 - 425 - 400...to start.

LoneStar Speedway continues to offer Late Model drivers some of the largest purses in the region. Every Late Model event at LoneStar Speedway pays a minimum of $3,000 to win in 2015.

Plus, all three LSS points divisions will be in action, which include $1,200 to win Modifieds, $700 to win for the Limited Modifieds and $500 to win for the Factory Stocks. Complete purse breakdown and rules are posted at the track website. Non-qualifier money is also paid to all race divisions, and there is no entry fee for the LSS points divisions. Standard SUPR entry fees and non-qualifier money is in effect.

If you were at the Memorial Day event, you will know we had a HUGE fireworks display. Race fans will once again enjoy a great LoneStar Fireworks display during intermission...brought to you at no extra admission charge.

A complete event flyer and payback by division for the Saturday July 4th event is posted under the ‘resources’ section of the track website.

1PM RACE DAY UPDATE 6/27/15: Sam and the ASCS Series Director have decided that due to the long distance the traveling sprint teams have to go, and with the uncertainty of the weather, that the sprint car portion of tonight's event at LoneStar Speedway has been removed.

The balance of the program is still as scheduled:

$1,000/win Modifieds
$500/win each Factory Stocks and Limited Mods
& a feature race for the Beginner Factory Stocks.

Ticket prices in the stands will be dropped back to regular prices of $12. Pits are still the same as they weren't increased for this event, which are $30.

If there are any further updates to tonight's racing schedule at LoneStar Speedway, it will be posted here and at www.LoneStarSpeedway.com immediately.

So please refrain from asking "are you still racing", as we will post any update here and on Facebook (link above) immediately, if, and when, there is one.

Thank you for your understanding and support. We can't help when the weather doesn't cooperate but we are doing everything we can to get in a race tonight.

LoneStar Speedway Making Up in a BIG Way after June 13th Rainout

Kilgore, TX (6/14/15) by DarinShort.com. When the rains hit yesterday afternoon at LoneStar Speedway, it might have 'dampened' everyone's spirits, but we're not going to 'drown' in tears worrying about it.

Yes, this was the 2nd time the $2,000 to win Texas Outlaw Modified Series had been scheduled at LSS and rained out.

Yes, this was the 2nd time the 'For the Love of Alex, Stop Texting and Driving' $1,300/win Limited Modified event got postponed by rain.

So, once again we've hit the ground running and have already booked the following event for SATURDAY, AUGUST 15:

NASCAR veteran driver KEN SCHRADER will take on the BEST MODIFIED DRIVERS IN TEXAS, when the Texas Outlaw Modified Series will make their first-ever LoneStar Speedway visit, paying $2,000 to win and $200 to start (24th).

Have a familiar ring? Yes, this is the original 'match up' we had set for April 18th, when it ended up falling to severe thunderstorms.

Additional details will be posted as time gets closer, as well as an event flyer.

We have a replacement date picked out for the 'For the Love of Alex, Stop Texting and Driving' $1,300/win Limited Modified event, and will post it when confirmed by Alex's parents, Trisha and Robert Taylor.

The special Factory Stock sponsorship from TNT Pick-a-Part in Greenwood LA (set for last night) will now be held on Saturday June 27th; which will make it $500/win Factory Stocks. The FS Hard Luck driver will take home $200 in credit towards in-stock replacement parts for their car...including items such as doors, fenders, hoods (all body panels) and stock replacement components.

We just wanted to let everyone know we're not going to let the weather decide if we all have a good time or not. It may not have been last night, but it will happen...Saturday, August 15th at LoneStar Speedway.
