$20,000 UP FOR GRABS THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 14 at LoneStar Speedway!

Kilgore TX (3/11/15) by DarinShort.com. Race fans, race teams and track officials are super pumped up for this Saturday's huge race at LoneStar Speedway (LSS). Weather may be affecting some tracks in Texas, but we're not going to let it affect us. USMTS series officials pulled the sanctioning plug at LoneStar because of wet conditions at the other two tracks on this weekend's 3-track swing. LoneStar Speedway had nothing to do with the decision to remove the event sanctioning.

HOWEVER, not to worry. LoneStar IS still going to have a huge race, touting a $20,000 total purse in just three race divisions, this Saturday March 14!

Now it's simply unsanctioned - just like it is throughout the season at LoneStar Speedway.

In light of the fact that the event is in such close proximity to this relaunch announcement, let's jump right in:

1. The overall event that was previously advertised, is still basically going to remain the same as when it was sanctioned, which means you can expect to see a great field of quality drivers in all three divisions.

2. Factory Stocks and Limited Modifieds: there are no changes to your previously advertised purse structures (as shown below). All LSS rules are in effect. It is a LSS points event.

3. The Modifieds will be racing 40 laps for an A-feature purse of $12,000; with $3,000 earmarked for the winner, down to $200 to start. Details below. However, the entry fee is 1/2 what it was going to be when it was sanctioned, if you preregister online at www.darinshort.com/031415.html by this FRIDAY NIGHT. Early entry to this event for Modifieds is $55. Entry fee for the Modifieds on race night will be $75. No sanctioning license is required. This is a LSS points event.

4. Modified drivers; Please take just a moment to get pre-entered. We have lots of fans that are willing to travel a great distance to come to this race - but they want to know that YOU will be here. Pre-entering by Friday night will allow us to advertise the driver list in advance, ensuring those fans their travel time will be well worth it. Lots of drivers are wanting us to host this event (by the massive amount of phone calls received). Especially with such short notice, please help us, to help you, by getting entered - NOW - as it closes Friday night. It is a super short registration process, at www.darinshort.com/031415.html

5. Modified payback at LSS on March 14: $3,000 - $1,500 - $800 - $650 - $600 (5th) - $550 - $500 - $450 - $400 - $375 (10th) - $350 - $300 - $275 - $250 - $200...to 24. $75 all NQ. Modified A-feature is 40 laps.

6. The posted LSS Modified track rules are in effect. Click www.LoneStarSpeedway.com to view/download.

7. The forecast for race day is dry and 70 degrees. LSS has a great under-track drainage system, and any precip that may fall on Thursday will not affect our Saturday race (there's a chance for rain on Thursday).

8. Greg Holmes of SUPR will be the Pit Steward for this event - as he has at many of the big LSS events throughout the years.

9. No transponders are required, however working RaceCeivers are required for all three divisions.

Please note that NONE of the following information has changed from what was previously advertised.

A very solid payback is posted for the Limited Modifieds and Factory Stocks:

Limited Modifieds: $700 - $400 - $300 - $200 - $180 - $160 - $140 - $120 - $100 - $80 - $60 to start. All NQ $30.

Kilgore, TX (3/10/15) by DarinShort.com. After receiving some much needed precip in the region, the rain has moved out and it's time to go racing THIS SATURDAY, March 14, with the LSS points opener for all divisions, featuring $3,000 to win in the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS). A total purse in excess of $24,000 is posted.

This is the first USMTS event at LSS in several years, and race fans can expect to see many of the nation's finest Modified drivers taking on the strong contingent of LSS Modified drivers.

Drivers such as Jason Hughes, Dereck Ramirez, Philip Houston, Austin Arneson, Jesse Sobbing, Zack VanderBeek, Cade Dillard, Adam Penn, Johnny Scott, Grant Junghans, Steve Whiteaker Jr., Clyde Dunn Jr., Jason Ingalls, Larry Fears, Wes Armstrong, Billy Melton, Billy Jack Brutchin, Kelly Lockey, Jeff Harris, Robert Taylor, T J Steele, Greg Penny; plus a host of many others are expected.

This is also the first time the Series has visited LoneStar under the new wide, high-banked .33 mile oval configuration. It was the 3/8 mile configuration before, so many of Series drivers have not raced on it, which will make for added excitement.

In addition to the $3,000 to win USMTS event, a complete program of Limited Modified ($700 to win) and Factory Stocks ($400 to win) will compete with heats and features. There is the standard USMTS entry fee in the Modifieds, while the Limited Modified and Factory Stock divisions have no entry fee. Again, all three divisions will receive LoneStar Speedway points, as this is the first points event of 2015.

USMTS Payback at LSS on March 14:

Licensed - $3,000 - 1,700 - 1,200 - 1,000 - 900 - 800 - 700 - 650 - 600 - 550 - 500 - 450 - 425 - 400 - 375 - 325 - 300...to 24, $90 NQ.

Non-Licensed - $3,000 - 1,500 - 1,000 - 900 - 800 - 700 - 600 - 550 - 500 - 450 - 400 - 375 - 350 - 325 - 300 - 275 - 250...to 24, $75 NQ.
