7/7/2012

5:30PM UPDATE: WE ARE STILL RACING - NO RAIN HERE! Several area tracks have rained out, and several of their teams have called and are on their way to LoneStar tonight - so don't miss out! Also D&K Consultants have added $200 to win the Ltd Mod feature, making it $700 to win tonight!

12:30PM 7/7 RACE DAY UPDATE: IT HAS NOT RAINED at the track today! Last night the track received a much needed shot of rain, it's still dry out now, and there's a chance of t-storms until early afternoon today, then it's supposed to get up to 90 degrees...so it should make for excellent racing & fireworks conditions. If there are any further updates, we'll post them here immediately!
