First Live Performance of “Sure Feels Right” to Debut at LoneStar Sprint Nationals!

Kilgore, TX (10/9/12) by www.DarinShort.com. For anyone that “Turns Left for a Living,” you will certainly enjoy the brand new dirt track racing inspired single by Nashville recording artist Mark McGuinn titled “Sure Feels Right.”

And for race fans attending the 2012 $120,000 LoneStar Sprint Nationals (held this weekend, October 11-13) at LoneStar Speedway, you will get to hear it live for the first time prior to the races on Championship night!

This project is a culmination of three seasons of sprint car racing and track promotions between www.lang14.com , Mark McGuinn and marketing partner Palm Harbor Homes based in Addison, Texas.

To check out the new music video, go to youtu.be/DZ3IRLjvIBE and it kicks off with on-track action from the 2011 LoneStar Sprint Nationals and the Palm Harbor Homes promotion race fans were involved in. It also includes past track performances from Mark at racetracks throughout the DFW area.

As a bonus, a free MP3 download of the single is now available. Go to www.racing.palmharbor.com and you can get it now through October 14th!

New for 2012 LoneStar Sprint Nat'ls: LoneStar CAMPGROUNDS

Postby dmantx » Tue Sep 25, 2012 10:43 am
KILGORE, TX (9/25/12) by DarinShort.com. LoneStar Speedway is pleased to announce the long awaited completion of the LoneStar Campgrounds located on the LoneStar Speedway property.

The LoneStar Campgrounds link is located within the LoneStar Sprint Nationals event website (Oct. 11-13), and here's the direct camping link:

www.darinshort.com/SCNcamping.html

The web page contains interactive maps, and a property map that is labeled with locations and directions.

There are currently 10 Camping spaces, with hook-ups (electricity and potable water), are currently available for this year's LoneStar Sprint Nationals.

The cost to reserve your space for the entire weekend is $75.

We have 10 camping spaces built on the far Southwest corner of the LoneStar Speedway property in an area we cleared out of the Piney Woods forest. (see aerial view of property for exact location below)

Once these 10 spots are sold out, all other camping spaces will be assigned, upon your arrival, as the track sees fit for your vehicle size/camping set-up.

There is no charge for camping spaces without hook-ups, but you must sign in at the office upon your arrival.

ALL CAMPERS MUST HAVE WORKING CARBON MONOXIDE METERS if you are to camp anywhere on the LoneStar Speedway property (assuming you have any generator-type equipment that produces Carbon Monoxide).

We require that ALL CAMPERS be respectful of the LoneStar Speedway property and other campers around you. Please clean up any messes you make, so we can keep camping affordable - and available - at LoneStar Speedway for this, and future events!

LoneStar “Nationals Warm-Up” Set for Sept. 29: Now Co-Sanctioned

A torrid three-car points chase in the LBS series is underway between points leader Marty Hargroder (1124 points), Ty Johnson (1116 points) and Herman Carrier (1116 points). The 2012 series champion will be crowned after the completion of the Nationals Warm-Up feature event.

In addition, the Louisiana Bayou Sprinters Association will be awarding a case of racing oil to the Hard Charger and one case of oil to Mystery Finishing Position in the feature race.

Heat races will be scored using the same LoneStar passing points system as in July. The published tire rules are also the same.

Those rules and format are published at: www.darinshort.com/SCN.html (which is the LoneStar Sprint Nationals).

$22,000 ON THE LINE SEPTEMBER 29th! PURSE AND FLYER POSTED UNDER 'Resources'

Kilgore TX (8/17/12) by DarinShort.com. Here's a good old fashioned recipe that all race fans will enjoy:

-Step 1: Mix a huge batch of dirt slinging Factory Stocks from area tracks together, and divide them into qualifying races.

-Step 2: Take the top 30 and let them shoot it out for 30 laps - and the Top Stocker will take home $2,000 in cash!

-Step 3: Let fans witness the shootout for just $12.

-Step 4: And what do you get? A recipe for "Factory Night Special" at LoneStar Speedway that fans and teams will not soon forget!

And for a "side dish" the track will be serving up a "Nationals Warm-Up" for RaceSaver® sanctioned Sprint Cars.

Using the identical rules published for the upcoming LoneStar Sprint Nationals (Oct. 11-13), this will give RaceSaver Sprint Car teams one last shot to get their car dialed in for the upcoming big LSN show that pays $2,200 to win and $400 down to 24th.

RaceSaver Sprint Car teams can choose to run either the STS or SST right rear tire, grooving is allowed; any tire is OK on the other three corners.

This will also give fans a "taste" of the action that will be witnessed over Nationals weekend. There is no preregistration for this division and complete purse and rules are published at the track website. Fans can expect several out of town teams to be on hand.

As if that isn't enough on the "plate", it's also Season Championships night; with Modifieds racing for $1,000 to win and Limited Modifieds $500 to win. This is also the final point's night for the Factory Stocks.

Over $22,000 in purse money is on the line at LoneStar Speedway on September 29th!

The "dessert" for the Factory Stock's is the giant winner's cup awarded to the winner. Make sure to check out the event flyer for a picture of last year's that was won by DeWayne Pace.

**7/6/12 EVENT UPDATE**

KILGORE, TX (7/6/12) by DarinShort.com. Although the $120,000 LoneStar Sprint Nationals (LSN) at LoneStar Speedway is over three months away, an interesting mix of drivers entered from seven states is already taking shape.

Highlighting the Sprint Division entries include 6-time Knoxville 410CI champion Terry McCarl and 9-time 410CI champion Danny Lasoski.

At last year's LSN Terry McCarl was entered, but a last minute out-of-country business commitment required Terry to fill the seat with replacement driver Daryn Pittman, who drove to the qualifying feature victory in his Eagle Motorsports chassis car on the Friday night portion of the three-day event. Pittman eventually finished 3rd in the LSN finale after starting 4th row in an event that had only one yellow flag fly in its 40-lap distance.

There is also talk of a second McCarl entry in 2012, which would make for an exciting father/son combination.

Another interesting pair of drivers at the LSN is the first brother/sister combination of Justin & Michelle Melton. Justin missed last year's LSN championship feature by only one spot, while up-and-comer Michelle plans to make her own mark on the LoneStar high-banks.

131 total teams entered the 2011 LSN event, which features a two-division 'sprint car only' format. All cars can race all three nights, giving the true sprint car fans exactly what they want: lots of sprint car racing and lots of sprint cars in three straight nights...and all for a 1980's style 3-day grandstand pass of just $40.

$120,000 cash is up for grabs at the 2012 edition, with $13,000 to win and $1,200 to start (24th) the Sprint Car division championship feature. The RaceSaver® Sprint division will be racing for $2,200 to win and $400 to start (24th). From 2011, the Sprint Car division purse is up roughly $11,000; while the RaceSaver Sprint Car division has received a boost of $9,000...and without an increase to fans in ticket prices.

The event is set to hit the high-banked clay oval of LoneStar Speedway October 11-13, with cars rolling onto the track at 7pm nightly (as the sun is setting). Please click www.darinshort.com/SCN.html for complete event details, rules, format, online registration, connect with our event host hotels, and much much more. Thursday and Friday nights events include a full night of racing with heats, B's and A's in each sprint car division. Thursday and Friday's qualifying night pay $2,000 to win and $200 to start in the high-powered Sprint Car division; and $500 to win and $100 to start in the wildly popular RaceSaver Sprint division.

Car numbers are awarded on a first-entered basis, so enter soon to get yours.
