  1. For immediate release: TDTS Public Relations Contact: Phil Whipple Tel: 207.689.6630 Heil dominates at South Texas Speedway for Texas Dirt Truck Series, Presented by Military Talent Source CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (June 9, 2019) — There's an old term frequently used in stick-and-ball sports used to describe an athlete with far more experience and skills than his or her rivals in a particular game or series. It's called a “ringer,” and it happens in short track stock car racing, as well. Veteran oval racer John Heil is a fine example, as he put on a clinic for his fellow competitors over the weekend. Heil, of Floresville, Texas, drove Rick Pollaro's No. 96 entry to a wire-to-wire victory in Saturday night's 20-lap feature at South Texas Speedway for the Texas Dirt Truck Series. Anthony Gordon, of San Antonio, hustled the Michael Keylich-owned Ford F-150 No. 77 entry to a solid runner-up finish, while point leader Larry Baggett, of Marble Falls, filled out the podium in third. Tony Bernal (La Vernia) and Russell Rust (Boerne) finished fourth and fifth, respectively. “I really have to thank Rick Pollaro for allowing me to drive this truck,” Heil said in Victory Lane. “This was a great time, and that thing was on a rail. It was a blast to race with these guys tonight, and I hope I have a chance to do it again.” With the originally scheduled race for June 8 at Texana Raceway washed away by rain, series owner George Jones got on the phone to find a track willing to add the series to their regular weekly program. South Texas Speedway promoter Steven Whiteaker Jr. stepped up on short notice, and the results were more than satisfactory. “I'm just so proud of the group of people we have supporting this series,” an exhausted Jones said after the program's conclusion. “I appreciate these teams more than they know, and I can't thank Steven enough for allowing us to come race here. I'm delighted with the results, and hope to return.” Notable performances in Round 2 on the 8-race 2019 inaugural schedule include that of Gordon, a talented driver as well as a graphics and vinyl wrap guru. The multi-time Street Stock feature winner already in 2019 jumped into a truck that changed hands twice recently and put it on the podium. Baggett continues to be Mr. Consistency, wheeling the No. 3 machine to a solid second-place finish in the qualifier before his hard-charging third-place run in the feature. His ability to adapt to a new track was clearly visible at South Texas Speedway. “I think John was out there in his own zip code tonight,” Baggett said after the feature. “Our truck was just horrible in Hot Laps, but we changed some tire pressures and moved some weight around a bit and it came right back to life in the qualifier. I'm pleased overall, and am thrilled we could race this weekend. I'm selling my Street Stock this week and going all-in with the trucks. I love them.” Baggett represents an amazing core group of series supporters worthy of mention and thanks, including All In Designs, Russell Gordon, Russ Parker Construction and new presenting sponsor Military Talent Source. The TDTS is gaining traction, thanks to those who believe in the concept. Next up for the Texas Dirt Truck Series, presented by Military Talent Source, is a return to the friendly confines of I-37 Speedway in beautiful Pleasanton, Texas on Saturday, June 29. With the rainy season now past us in south Texas, it's time to apply the sunscreen, hydrate heavily and get set to go racing. It's already starting to heat up.

  2. Hats off to the South Texas Speedway crew ! Track was more racy than it has been resulting in a lot of three wide racing and passing. Big crowd was on hand to enjoy great racing from all the classes , the excitement of Sprint Cars and the biggest 50/50 payout I can remember , $850 or close to it. Hats off to the fans for donating close to $500 to the sportmod driver who took a rough flip. So if you are looking for something fun and exciting to do head out to South Texas Speedway tomorrow night !
  3. South Texas Speedway already has the best Sportmod class in South Texas so add to that not only $2000 to win it is $1000 for 2nd ,$750 to third , $400 to fourth and $250 for fifth. Hats off to STS for spreading the wealth ! This should bring other top Sportsmods in addition to the aforementioned best STS Sportmods. Throw it the other competitive classes and karts you have a can't miss, must see show! DON'T MISS IT !!!

  5. Opening night #3

    TRP and I-37 had very successful opening nights. Now it is the fastest and home of some of the best drivers around turn ! A plus is South Texas Speedway has the E-Mod class that has grown and become an exciting class to watch. Can't see them at TRP or I-37! TRP and I-37 have set a high bar but STS has history on its side. So if you are in the Corpus Christi area Saturday March 31 stop by the spacious, comfortable South Texas Speedway for the best racing in South Texas!
  6. One more to go!

    Well Shady Oaks sure provided a great time now we got one more season ender to go. This Saturday night there are a few final point decisions to be had. The big three will be racing , Pure Stock , E-Mod and Limited Modified as will the Limited Late Model ,Street Stock and Sport Compacts. Season enders at South Texas Speedway historically have been very interesting and entertaining. With high points to the rear that will make the Pure Stock feature that much more interesting. E-Mods too. This is a can't miss event not only for excitement but to help us get to the BIG race in December. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!! P,S. I predict the Pure Stocks will have fewer yellows than LM's!
  7. Getcha$ome Practice

    I went to Thursday's practice expecting to 30 or so local cars there.There had to be at least double that with several out of town cars there and more pulling in.If this is an indicator this weekend is going to be HUGE! Fans get there early as it looks like there may be cars pitting in the parking lot! G.B. is in trouble! There was a #0 Volkswagon Bug there that was flying! This is a can't miss event so plan on being in Corpus Christi this weekend!
  8. South Texas Getcha$ome

    Next stop South Texas Speedway! We will be releasing alot of news and information over the next couple weeks. This event is set for November 5th, 6th and 7th.
