LoneStar Speedway's MODIFIED MANIA - Coming Saturday April 9th!

Kilgore TX (3/28/16) by DarinShort.com. If you are a fan of open wheel Modified racing, you'll not want to miss the next night of racing at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) on Saturday, April 9th with the running of "Modified Mania."

Modified Mania features the Texas Winged Modified Association (TWMA) vs. Ark-La-Tex Winged Modified Association (ALTWM) Shootout, plus the high-powered LoneStar Modifieds (racing for $1,200 to win) and Limited Modifieds...all will be competing in heat and feature events.

Plus, a full program of Factory Stocks and the new Front Wheel Drive 4-Cylinders will round out the racing card. This is a full points night for all LoneStar Speedway racing divisions.

Winged Modifieds have thrilled fans in Texas and the A-L-T area for decades, and LoneStar Speedway will serve as 'neutral ground' for this special Shootout between the two rival series...so race fans will get to see the best of both series on the same night at the same track - in the same race.

Fans can expect to see Winged Modified drivers such as Dale Wester, Rex Adrian, Steve Adrian, Dustin Mooney, Stott Trowell, Kadale Kolar, Terry White, Teddy White, Callie Lee, David Suggs, Terry Trowell, Charlie Davidson, Korey Keimig, David Glanagan and David Williams from the TWMA group; and Alan Myers, Thomas Burge, Koty Adams, Rick Corte, Eddie Grmela, Susie Bates, Mike Krompegal, Brother Fowles, Tyler Morgan, Ken Mangham, David Suggs, Tommy Hall and Greg Whitten from the ALTWM group.

Plus, veteran driver Doug Ingalls plans to be behind the wheel of a TWMA Winged Modified for this event - so don't miss your chance to see one of the most popular drivers in this area race at LoneStar once again!

The LoneStar Modifieds will be racing for $1,200 to win - and there is no entry fee or increased pit pass due from competitors for this race.

Rounding out the full-plate of modified divisions in Modified Mania will be the ultra-competitive Limited Modifieds, with their feature winner receiving $500. The full night of racing rounds out a complete program for the Factory Stocks, paying $300 to win, and the new FWD 4-Cylinder division pays $100 to win. Non-qualifier money will be paid in each division, as is the case at every LoneStar Speedway event.

Complete purse breakdown in all divisions is posted at the LSS website under the 'resources' section, as always (Click TexasWingModifiedAssociation.com and ArkLaTexWingModifieds.com for full purse and respective rules). Pit passes for all ages are being kept at the 'weekly LSS show' price of $30.

Grant Junghans only made one 600-mile trip south from Manhattan Kansas to LoneStar Speedway, and that was past September during the Armadillo Nationals.

He made a big impression with the fans, drivers and track management with his larger-than-live personality...and quickly adapted to the LoneStar high banks.

And, when their team left the pit gate at the end of the weekend, they not only left with a whole new group of fans and friends, they were also holding a massive trophy, oversized check - plus the real check, for $10,000 after winning the 3rd annual LoneStar Armadillo Nationals .

27-year old Grant was in remission from cancer at the time, and we are very saddened to hear that he has passed away from the disease that he battled so hard with.

From everyone at LoneStar Speedway, we hope that Grant's friends and family can come to find peace at this difficult time. Please keep them in your thoughts.

If you'd like to see some pictures of Grant at LoneStar this past September, visit our Faacebook page, at: www.facebook.com/LoneStar-Speedway-Fan-Page-172714742765279/
