LoneStar Speedway Transformation: Changes by 11/13

LoneStar Speedway Transformation: Changes by 11/13 Event; Pictures Included

Kilgore TX (11/1/10) by DarinShort.com. The storied history of LoneStar Speedway continues, as the ½ mile speed plant is now being transformed to include a wide, banked ¼ mile track.

Track owners Sam and Lisa Hafertepe comment: “We like tracks of all sizes, and part of the appeal of reopening LoneStar Speedway was to offer area drivers a big, wide open track to race at. The reality is, the drivers in the area have equipment to compete on shorter tracks, but the majority of them don’t have the equipment to race regularly on a big track like this. We’re changing it to help accommodate their needs so every race team can come have a great night of racing at LoneStar Speedway – all season long.”

The track will be reconfigured in plenty of time for the upcoming 5th Annual Dustin Duncan Memorial event to be held on November 13th. An open practice will be held on November 12th so teams can get their cars dialed in to the new track size.

The ½ mile track will still be intact for the 2011 special events such as the Sprint Cars and Late Models.

To view several progress pictures of the transformation with the addition of the ¼ mile track, please see our photo gallery

Here are some quick facts for the November 13th event:

Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series First Ever Visit


CORONA, CA (October 12, 2010) – Officials of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series have released the 2011 racing schedule. It currently shows 41 confirmed dates in 19 different states. In 2011, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will begin its seventh season as the premier dirt late model sanctioning organization in North America. Coming off of the most successful season in series’ history in 2010, the series ran 39 events with 13 different winners and 500 drivers making at least one appearance in ’10. The series looks to build on its past success, that saw an unprecedented 14 drivers compete full-time with the tour. Heading into 2011, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is elated to release its official national schedule, having confirmed all dates with promoters, and having no TBA or TBD dates on the docket.

The 2011 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series national tour will kick off at the “Clay by the Bay” on February 7th with the six consecutive nights of action packed racing during the 35th Annual Dart Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will again be sanctioning some of the sports biggest events such as the DART Show-Me 100, Comp Cams Topless 100, Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100, and the 43rd Annual Hillbilly Hundred.

The series will be making its first ever visits to Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, TX and Roaring Knob Motorsports Park in Markleysburg, PA. “We are glad to have added a pair of new venues to the schedule this year. The 2010 schedule looked great, but this year looks even better,” said Lewis. “We feel that we have the best show in Dirt Late Model Racing, and I can’t thank our promoters, my staff, our drivers, car owners, sponsors, and our fans enough for their support. We have put together a great infrastructure for making the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series the foremost national late model touring series in the country.”

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series takes great pride in the fact that 100% of the tracks that sanctioned an event in 2010 are on the slate again for ’11. “It really goes to show you how devoted our promoters, staff, drivers, and fans are to the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, that we have put together such a solid schedule as we head into the next season,” exclaimed Series Director, Ritchie Lewis.
