Kilgore TX (5/18/12) by DarinShort.com. The temperature is starting to rise outside, and just in time for some hot racing action when the “East Texas Thunder 25” for Southern Thunder Sprints (STS) hits the high banks at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) on Saturday June 9th. There are purse increases throughout the field, and the 25-lap feature will pay all starters a minimum of $200 (to 24th).

Drivers can also choose to run the Southern Thunder Sprint (STS) or Sprint Series of Texas (SST) right rear tire – and that goes for all remaining RaceSaver Sprint events at LoneStar in 2012.

The three LSS points divisions will also be racing a complete program of heats and features, including: Modifieds $1,000 to win, $500 to win for the Limited Modifieds and $300 to win for the Factory Stocks.

This is the second of three “Thunder on the High Banks” series events scheduled for 2012 at LSS, which have become a fan favorite due to rock bottom ticket price of just $10 for adults. This allows everyone a great night of racing at family-affordable prices.

Fans can expect STS drivers including: Alan Myers, Josh Hawkins, Cody Harger, Cody Robbins, Marty Hargroeder, Ty Johnson, Regan Hawkins, Matt Ebarb, Koty Adams and David Forbis.

Kilgore TX (4/14/12) by DarinShort.com. Due to the tremendous fan and race team support at the opening events at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) in 2012, speedway officials have decided to show their thanks by adding a special event to the calendar Saturday May 12th with Fast Family Fun Night, featuring $5 general admission tickets for all ages from 6 and up!

The three LSS points divisions will be racing a complete program of heats and features. The Modifieds will be racing for $1,100 to win, plus $600 to win for the Limited Modifieds and $300 to win for the Factory Stocks.

But then there’s the first of several ‘fun’ components to the night’s program, and that is, the Factory Stocks will be racing a second feature race (with full purse) – and the starting lineup will be determined by the finishing order of the first feature, except inverted! The last car finishing on the lead lap of the first feature will start on the pole and the winner of the first feature will start towards the back. Lapped drivers or those not finishing the first feature will line up behind the winner, and alternates may also be added from the B-feature to complete the field. There will be points awarded for the first feature race only.

For the kids, there will be bike drawings for both the boys and girls.

There will be several added 50/50 ticket drawings as well as other added surprises throughout the night for the LSS fans.
