11/12 UPDATE: Modifieds & Limited Modifieds have gone TOPLESS for the LoneStar Turkey Nationals!
Kilgore TX (11/6/12) by DarinShort.com. The final SUPR Late Model Series event of 2012 will be spectacular when the LoneStar Turkey Nationals hits the high banks of LoneStar Speedway Saturday, November 24th. The feature race is 50 laps in distance and pays $3,500 to win and $500 to start.
And that’s not all.
In the first time in the 22 year history of the SUPR Late Model Series, the cars will race topless! So race fans will get a clear view of the drivers as they wheel their cars around the wide high-banked 3/8 mile oval.
The event is sponsored in part by P&W Sales located in Kilgore, Texas. P&W has been supplying drilling and oilfield products to the industry for over 48 years. P&W is also a proud sponsor of Late Model standout Morgan Bagley.
Fans can expect a large field of Late Model division drivers and several ‘invaders’ can be expected from throughout the region, including LoneStar SUPR Firecracker 40 winner Kevin Sitton; plus Allen Tippen, Rob Litton, Jim Bryant, Robbie Starnes, Zack McMillan, Ronny Adams, Robbie Stuart, Ray Moore, Tyler Erb – and many, many more. Other than the Late Model drivers required to being topless, all other SUPR rules and formats will be in effect.
In addition to the SUPR Late Model Series, a complete program of Modified (paying $600 to win), Limited Modified ($500 to win) and Factory Stocks ($400 to win) will compete. There is no entry fee in the Modified, Limited Modified and Factory Stock divisions. Complete purse breakdown for all divisions and rules are located at the track website.
Drivers in the Modifieds, Limited Modifieds and Factory Stocks have an added bonus, as Boothill Speedway (racing November 23rd) plus LoneStar Speedway (Nov. 24th) have teamed up to provide the overall weekend point’s winner, in each division, a two-track cash bonus of $200.
Special “Twilight” start times are in effect for this event, so fans and teams can have a great day of racing at the track, while still leaving at an early time. With hot laps scheduled for 2pm and racing to follow, we expect the races to be finished by 7 or 8pm.
