$13,000 LoneStar Awards Bash! Sunday, Dec. 1


$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.

Here are the specifics of the LSS Awards Bash being held in the main grandstand area at LSS:

- Grandstand entrance/ticket sales open at 12:45pm, Sunday December 1st

- Food served from 1pm-2:30pm

- Awards distribution from 1:30pm-2:30pm

- Each driver in the top 10 in points (listed below) receives free admittance, plus each of those drivers receive 3 free tickets to the event (to give out to their crew or family members)

- This event is open to all. Purchase tickets upon your arrival. All ages are just $10 each

- Your admittance includes a Steak Dinner, along with sides.

- We are requesting desserts be brought by those individuals who enjoy baking.

- Beverages (for all age groups…hint, hint) are compliments of track owners Lisa and Sam Hafertepe

- Event concludes at 3pm

The feature race is 40 laps in distance and pays $5,000 to win and $600 to start.

As in 2012, the SUPR Late Model Series cars will race topless. So race fans will get a clear view of the drivers as they wheel their cars around the wide, high-banked .33 mile oval.

There is no entry fee in the Modified, Limited Modified and Factory Stock divisions. The starting field has been expanded to 24 cars in each of these divisions. Complete purse breakdown for all divisions and rules are located at the track website.

Special “Twilight” start times are in effect for this event, so fans and teams can have a great day of racing at the track, while leaving at an early time. With hot laps scheduled for 2pm and racing to follow, we expect the races to be finished around 8pm.

THANK YOU to the 169 race teams that supported the LoneStar Armadillo Nationals! Teams pulled to LoneStar from throughout the region, the Midwest and as far away as Arizona.

A great and supportive fall crowd was on hand to witness the racing action. And thank you to the racers and fans that donated bikes for the kids in the stands - a total of 13 bikes were given away!

And THANK YOU to those that took the time to support the holiday food drive. It will go along way to put a smile on the face of area residents that are less fortunate.

Full results will be posted on SpeedNet soon, but here are a few quick results (unofficial) and a link to the $10,000 to win Modified championship feature event posted from Ft. Worth Star-Telegram's Don Cook:


For more pictures and video clips from Don taken during this event, go to:


$10,000 winner Finish: Geiber, Whiteaker, Catman, Ingalls, Murphrey. Murphrey had a flat aroynd lap 15. Dunn broke running 3rd on lap 34, Brown broke running 3rd on lap 25 or so. Only 2 cars lapped in feature. 50 lap feature ran in 33 minutes.

Hebert won Ltds after breaking in his Modified during the B-feature. Interestingly, Modified feature winner Geiber broke his Limited Modified in that A-feature.

The Factory Stock feature had a big wreck a couple of laps into the race, and the results/recap of that race will be posted soon.

Again, THANK YOU to everyone that supported the event...more will be coming soon!
