  1. For immediate release: Cotton Bowl Speedway PR Contact: Mary Ann Naumann Tel: 512-844-3582 Spillman, Pittman to share announcing duties at Cotton Bowl Speedway in 2020 PAIGE, Texas (Dec. 16, 2019) — Two men with an in-depth knowledge of the Texas short track scene and many friends within the sport will combine forces to entertain and inform race fans in 2020. Former racer turned promoter Joe Spillman and longtime P.A. announcer Owen Pittman will keep fans at Cotton Bowl Speedway apprised of the action during a 15-event schedule. Both men will work the mics on March 13, 2020, for the season-opening World of Outlaws NOS Sprint Car tour visit. Spillman will serve as the track's primary announcer, while Pittman will handle those duties on four or five occasions. The two men take the place of world-class announcer and Revved Up Sports Show host Rodney Rodriguez, who serves as the announcer at Houston Motorsports Park on several conflicting dates. “I'm incredibly proud of Rodney, and have been a fan since the first day I heard him on the mic as a young man,” Cotton Bowl track operator/race promoter Mary Ann Naumann said. “His skills have become so strong, he is booked solid most of the time. We've been lucky to have him when he was available, yet for 2020 we simply needed somebody who could commit to us all year. He fully understands that.” Most recently active as the promoter at 281 Speedway in Stephenville, Spillman has seen the sport from both sides of the fence. He'll be well suited to the job and is anxious for next spring. “I've been racing at Cotton Bowl Speedway from the very beginning," Spillman said. “I love the facility and the location. I have also been friends with Mary Ann and H for many, many years, since the Longhorn days. Having promoted and raced, I'm hoping to add some insight into the announcer's role.” Pittman, of Corpus Christi, worked at I-37 Speedway alongside Milton Hope the past few seasons. Race fans across the region know his voice the minute he turns on the microphone. Pittman handled announcing duties at Cotton Bowl for its 2019 edition of OctoberFast, and did a fabulous job. “We've known and respected Owen for many years,” Nauman added. “We knew him when he had the very successful TAMS Asphalt series. He is a great guy, and we look forward to having him back in the tower more often next season.” Pittman says his respect for Cotton Bowl runs deep, and his enthusiasm for 2020 is off the chart. “Mary Ann and H bring a very positive vibe to the sport,” Pittman said. “They have a first class facility and run it in a professional manner. I love the track, the staff, and all those dedicated racers at Cotton Bowl. I'm anxious to get back up there next year and call some more exciting races.” Cotton Bowl Speedway is operated by MAN Racing Promotions. The track hosts races every other Saturday night from mid-March through mid-October with a full card of racing. Officials and racers will celebrate the 2019 class champions in grand style on Jan. 12 at the annual awards banquet.

  2. For immediate release: TDTS Public Relations Contact: Phil Whipple Twitter: @PhilWhipple Officials announce remainder of 2019 schedule for Texas Dirt Truck Series SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Feb. 1, 2019) — Officials of the new Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) have announced the remaining five dates on their inaugural event schedule, bringing the debut season up to 11 races at three different venues. Joining the five race dates at I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, and the June 22 event at Cotton Bowl are five new dates at the newly-renamed Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, TX. The 3/8-mile high-banked clay oval, formerly known as Red River Raceway, was purchased last week by Raymond Charles Evans III, series director for the Ultimate Deep South Super Late Model series. “We're more than excited about taking our trucks up to Wichita Falls to compete at Monarch Motor Speedway,” TDTS co-owner George Jones said. “I know Charles is making big plans for several special events up there this year, so we're honored to be a part of those plans.” The Texas Dirt Truck Series teams will compete at MMS on July 4, 5 and 6 for a holiday triple-header. They'll return on Aug. 30-31 as a companion division to the Southern Texas Late Model Series. It's two trips north for the San Antonio-based group, yet more than worthy for five points races. “That three-night special on the Fourth of July weekend should separate the contenders from the pretenders,” series co-owner Mike Fortier said. “I'm delighted that Charles Evans feels so strongly about our trucks he's booked us into his new facility on two important race weekends. We're very anxious to compete up there.” The 2019 campaign will begin at I-37 Speedway on Saturday, March 23. Track owners Ray Doyon III and Michael Keylich will give the command for the TDTS debut race, fitting given the faith those two individuals have placed in the Texas Dirt Truck Series. On April 13, the series returns to I-37 for Round 2 to see who took the best notes and found the hot setup during their inaugural visit in March. It'll be a true test of drivers and crew chiefs as they work to figure out the right chassis setups for these exciting new pickup-bodies racing machines. On June 22, a $1,000-to-win race at Cotton Bowl in companion with the Ultimate Deep South Super Late Model series will generate excitement. With its high-banked surface, Cotton Bowl will present a real challenge yet offer big thrills to TDTS competitors. It's a not-to-be-missed event. Just one week later, the series returns to I-37 for the third of five appearances at the wide, well-groomed oval in Pleasanton. Many teams, like full-time points contenders Russ Parker (Parker-Jones Racing/Chevrolet) and Tony Bernal (MFM Ford) will have the place figured out by then and be fast. The Texas Dirt Truck Series was launched in Oct. of 2018 and will be running its inaugural campaign in 2019. It was formed on the concept of America's love for full-size pickups and passion for short track racing on dirt. For more information, go to www.texasdirttrucks.com.
