Kilgore TX (4/14/12) by DarinShort.com. Due to the tremendous fan and race team support at the opening events at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) in 2012, speedway officials have decided to show their thanks by adding a special event to the calendar Saturday May 12th with Fast Family Fun Night, featuring $5 general admission tickets for all ages from 6 and up!

The three LSS points divisions will be racing a complete program of heats and features. The Modifieds will be racing for $1,100 to win, plus $600 to win for the Limited Modifieds and $300 to win for the Factory Stocks.

But then there’s the first of several ‘fun’ components to the night’s program, and that is, the Factory Stocks will be racing a second feature race (with full purse) – and the starting lineup will be determined by the finishing order of the first feature, except inverted! The last car finishing on the lead lap of the first feature will start on the pole and the winner of the first feature will start towards the back. Lapped drivers or those not finishing the first feature will line up behind the winner, and alternates may also be added from the B-feature to complete the field. There will be points awarded for the first feature race only.

For the kids, there will be bike drawings for both the boys and girls.

There will be several added 50/50 ticket drawings as well as other added surprises throughout the night for the LSS fans.

A complete event flyer, plus rules and complete payback for all three LoneStar Speedway points divisions has been posted under the ‘resources’ section on the right side of this page.

Here are some quick facts for the event:

-Grandstands open at 5pm, Hot Laps at 7pm with Racing to follow.
-Pits open at 4pm.
-General Admission just $5 (ALL ages 6 and older). Tickets available at the gate on race day only.
-Ages 5 and under admitted free with adult admission
-Upgrade any ticket to the Reserved Section (bucket seats) for $5 per person
-If you purchase tickets with MasterCard or Visa, there is a $1/ticket processing fee.
-All Pit Passes $30.

STS & SST Tires at ALL LSS RaceSaver  Races!

STS & SST Tires at ALL LSS RaceSaver Races!

5/7/2012

KILGORE, TX (5/8/12) by DarinShort.com. LoneStar Speedway (LSS) is situated right in the geographic center of two large groups of RaceSaver® sprint car teams that utilize different right rear tire rules.

Last fall at the LoneStar Sprint Nationals (LSN), a rule was implemented where either the Southern Thunder Sprint (STS) Series or Sprint Series of Texas (SST) stamped right rear tires would be legal to be used by the competitors. The rule change allowed all teams in the region to participate in the event – and the results were excellent.

That being said, all remaining RaceSaver sanctioned events on the 2012 event schedule will allow the same tire rule that was implemented at the 2011 LSN; which is, drivers can choose whether they run the STS or SST stamped right rear tire.

Remaining 2012 RaceSaver dates on the LSS schedule include:

Saturday, June 9th: “Thunder on the High Banks” Round 2, for STS Series.

Saturday, July 28th: LoneStar RaceSaver Sprint Special (details TBA).

Saturday, August 11th: “Thunder on the High Banks” Round 3, for STS Series.

Saturday, September 29th: Nationals Warm-Up for RaceSaver Sprints.

Thu.-Sat. Oct. 11th-13th: 2nd Annual $120,000 LoneStar Sprint Nationals

This rules change will allow all teams, from both east and west, the opportunity of racing at LSS – and as importantly – the fans get to see a great field of cars competing when a RaceSaver sanctioned sprint race is scheduled.

If each driver has 1 volunteer it will be greatly appreciated.
To sign up please go by the souvenir booth and see Kathleen or call Lisa Hafertepe 972 977-7304 or Susie Ingalls 903 235-3300.
