$13,000 LoneStar Speedway Awards Bash, Sunday, Dec. 1 ***EVERYONE WELCOME - TICKETS JUST $10!!! **
Kilgore, TX (11/25/13) by DarinShort.com. Sunday, December 1st at 1pm, LoneStar Speedway (LSS) drivers, crews, families, fans and track workers will gather at the speedway to celebrate and commemorate the 2013 LSS racing season with its annual Awards Bash and point’s fund distribution.
A whopping $13,000 in cash, plus a variety of other items from track sponsors DAY Motorsports and Smiley’s Racing Products and LSS will be awarded to drivers that supported the speedway throughout the 2013 racing season.
There were 12 points races scheduled in 2013, and all 12 events were completed. There was only one weather-delayed event, and that was the finale of the Armadillo Nationals, which concluded on November 2nd.
As in years’ past, there was no association fee or sanctioning fees that LSS drivers had to pay to be eligible for the point fund money. Drivers simply registered their cars and competed in at least 70% of the LSS events that were completed to be eligible.
The LSS Awards Bash will take place on the heels of this Saturday’s $33,000 Turkey Nationals, which features $5,000 to win and $600 to start for the SUPR Topless Late Models. All three LoneStar points divisions will be racing – however this is not a point’s race. Click www.LoneStarSpeedway.com for complete event details. Action kicks off at 2pm.
