Kilgore TX (5/18/12) by DarinShort.com. The temperature is starting to rise outside, and just in time for some hot racing action when the “East Texas Thunder 25” for Southern Thunder Sprints (STS) hits the high banks at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) on Saturday June 9th. There are purse increases throughout the field, and the 25-lap feature will pay all starters a minimum of $200 (to 24th).
Drivers can also choose to run the Southern Thunder Sprint (STS) or Sprint Series of Texas (SST) right rear tire – and that goes for all remaining RaceSaver Sprint events at LoneStar in 2012.
The three LSS points divisions will also be racing a complete program of heats and features, including: Modifieds $1,000 to win, $500 to win for the Limited Modifieds and $300 to win for the Factory Stocks.
This is the second of three “Thunder on the High Banks” series events scheduled for 2012 at LSS, which have become a fan favorite due to rock bottom ticket price of just $10 for adults. This allows everyone a great night of racing at family-affordable prices.
Fans can expect STS drivers including: Alan Myers, Josh Hawkins, Cody Harger, Cody Robbins, Marty Hargroeder, Ty Johnson, Regan Hawkins, Matt Ebarb, Koty Adams and David Forbis.
And, due to the tire rule change and increased purse, several DFW area ‘invaders’ will certainly be on hand to take on the strong contingent of STS teams.
