For immediate release: TDTS Public Relations RaceOnTexas.com, Revved Up Sports Show new Official Media Partners at Texas Dirt Truck Series, Presented by Military Talent Source SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Jan. 29, 2020) — Officials of the Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) have announced two well known and highly respected media outlets with a statewide reach have joined their growing family of marketing partners for the 2020 season. RaceOnTexas.com, a multi-media company that offers high quality Live and Archived video footage from tracks across Texas, and the Austin-based Revved Up Sports Show (RUSS) will become the Official Media Partners of the series. This cross-promotion will help draw new subscribers and listeners for the two media outlets while ensuring steady, statewide media coverage for the TDTS. “We couldn't be more excited about this partnership for our second season,” series founder and owner George Jones said. “I've known those guys for years, and not only do they do a fantastic job at covering our sport, they've built a loyal following around the state. This will help build our fan base.” RaceOnTexas.com owner Chris David has assembled a team of skilled cameramen who capture every lap of the action at short tracks across Texas and even into Louisiana all season long. In 2019, his site also started delivering new content featuring Spotlight feature stories on drivers in all divisions. “We've been watching the Truck series grow in popularity since George first put it together and ran his first race at I-37,” David said. “We've had cameras rolling for several of their races, so I know the excitement they deliver. I'm excited about this deal and value our relationship with the TDTS.” Rodney Rodriguez is the host and founder of the Revved Up Sports Show, heard each week Live from Round Rock, Texas, online and on The Horn radio in Austin. Serving as co-host since the show began is Bobby Chaffee, a veteran of the Texas racing scene. Rodriguez has covered the TDTS from the start, and sees a bright future for the touring series geared toward affordability for race teams. “I've had my eye on this series since it got up and running last year, and even had the pleasure of calling their appearance at Cotton Bowl Speedway on September 28,” Rodriguez said. “I love the concept of affordable trucks, and everybody knows trucks are king here in Texas. They've got it going on this year with new host tracks and supporters. We're thrilled to be a part of their growth in 2020.” In exchange for this valued coverage around the Lone Star State, Texas Dirt Truck Series staff will connect with fans to inform them of the video coverage available on RaceOnTexas.com and the in-depth interviews they can hear each week on the Revved Up Sports Show. Together, these two media outlets do a great job at keeping short track racing on the radar screen among consumers across Texas. The Texas Dirt Truck Series will kick off its second season on Saturday, March 28, at I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas. This year's schedule will see the series visit new venues across the state, from Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls to South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi.

Founded by rising entrepreneur Matt Leonard, the company places former service men and women in good careers. This valued new partnership makes Military Talent Source (MTS) the presenting sponsor, fitting given the history of a strong military presence in the San Antonio area. The nation's seventh largest city is home to the famed Lackland Air Force Base and the even busier Randolph Air Force Base. “We're thrilled to have Matt Leonard and Military Talent Source on board for our inaugural season,” TDTS founder and owner George Jones said. “This adds tremendous credibility to our series and is a perfect fit for us, given where we are based. I'm excited to tell our fans about this partnership.” Military Talent Source matches veteran talent with career opportunity. The company is a specialized recruitment process outsourcing firm that conducts military recruiting and veteran employment consulting as a full focus. “I'm excited to be involved with this growing new series,” company founder and chief executive officer Leonard said. “I recently returned from a trip to Austin, in fact, and it looks like I'll have a chance to do some work down in that area. Since San Antonio is such a huge military city, this series is a great fit. “I'm really a marketing guy at heart. I'm currently involved with an active race team here in Maine, and have some local businesses on board the program. I'm utilizing the TDTS to gain exposure for our company while helping to get a series with a lot of fan appeal off the ground and running.” This new partnership was announced as the series gets set to make its debut at South Texas Speedway (replacing the rained-out event at Texana Raceway) in Corpus Christi on Saturday, June 8. Larry Baggett, of Marble Falls, TX, won the series' inaugural event on March 23. Whether they are working with businesses or organizations to build veteran-friendly hiring solutions or out on the road meeting with separating veterans at transition sites around the country, Military Talent Source is constantly striving to help businesses recruit and retain veteran talent.

We welcome Military Talent Source to the truck series.” The Texas Dirt Truck Series, presented by Military Talent Source, will run six more races on its eight-race 2019 campaign.

On Saturday, June 22, the series will run a $1,000-to-win, $200-to-start feature at the famed Cotton Bowl Speedway as part of the Ultimate Super Late Model series weekend. The popular dirt track tour will also be in action on Friday, June 21, kicking off a two-night spectacle of great racing. Officials from both touring series feel the newly-created TDTS is an ideal companion division and expect plenty of action at Cotton Bowl. The Ultimate SLM tour will run a 14-race schedule for the Deep South region in 2019, while the TDTS was hoping to add Cotton Bowl to it's schedule. “We're pretty excited to have this opportunity to race at Cotton Bowl alongside the Deep South SLM teams,” TDTS co-owner George Jones said. “Ultimate series officials reached out to us, praised what we're doing and invited us to come down. I believe we'll give their fans an exciting show.” The Ultimate Super Late Model tour covers much of the country, with its Deep South region joining the Mid-Ohio Valley, Northeast and Heart of America divisions. Super Late Model racing on dirt is popular across much of the nation, and the USLM delivers quality entertainment at every track. “Having the Texas Dirt Truck Series as part of our show at Cotton Bowl is an excellent fit,” Deep South region series director Charles Evans said. “That gives us four classes to run, offering a body style for all types of race fans. They love trucks in Texas, so we're excited to bring them on board.” The Texas Dirt Truck Series was launched in October of 2018 and will make its on-track debut at I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, on March 23. The series was created on the concept of offering an affordable yet highly-competitive and entertaining product based on America's love for trucks. In early January, the series announced five confirmed race dates at I-37 this year thanks to a belief by track owners Ray Doyon and Michael Keylich that the TDTS will succeed. Other tracks and promoters are also expressing an interest, putting a big smile on the faces of series officials. “I'm thrilled with our chance to race at Cotton Bowl alongside a well-proven series like the Ultimate Super Late Models,” series co-owner Mike Fortier said. “Their two-night show will be very exciting, and we're honored they wanted us there. I hope this leads to more companion shows for us.” Based in Carnesville, Georgia, the Ultimate Super Late Model series is the southeast's premier touring division. Chris Ferguson won the inaugural USLM championship in 2011, while Zack Mitchell won the 2018 points title. Casey Roberts leads the all-time win list with 20 USLM feature victories.
