SAT. FEB 21 6PM - LONESTAR SPRINT SMACKDOWN IS ON, AS SCHEDULED!
Kilgore, TX (2/20/15) by DarinShort.com. A wild roller coaster forecast is currently showing that whatever precip that may fall should be over by early afternoon on Saturday; ...so LoneStar Speedway is moving forward with the highly anticipated LoneStar Sprint Smackdown on Saturday, February 21st at 6pm.
Here's everything you need to know:
- Sprint Car driver registration has been extended through tonight (saves $25) at www.darinshort.com/022115.html We understand that the forecast wasn't looking so hot and there are several drivers that held off on entering. In the chance that the forecast changes and the event does fall to weather, refunds will be promptly issued. So get entered if you're coming! Sprint Car feature starts 24 cars ($400/start!) and is 25 laps.
-The forecast tomorrow at race time is right at 60 degrees with a 10% chance of precip throughout the night. Bring some warm clothes so you can enjoy the races.
-We're not going to keep any of you hanging. If the weather does take a turn for the worse, we will immediately post here, and the track website and area racing forums any change to our race status. They've actually watered the track today, so it needs the moisture anyway.
-The RaceSaver tire rule for all LoneStar Speedway events in 2015 is as follows: The Right Rear must be the RaceSaver plated Hoosier tire (that went into effect later last year). The other 3 corners of your car are open to driver preference. Grooving/siping is OK.
-The Modifieds ($1,000/win), Factory Stocks ($300/win) and Limited Modifieds ($500/win) will also be racing a complete program (not a LSS points event, and no entry fees). Complete event flyer is at the link below. Click www.LoneStarSpeedway.com for full purse breakdown and rules (all divisions).
-Mufflers in any division are NOT required at LoneStar Speedway, so race fans get to hear them the way they were intended!
