For immediate release: TDTS Public Relations Contact: Phil Whipple Tel: 207.689.6630 Season opener at I-37 Speedway on tap for Aligned Mortgage Texas Dirt Truck Series, Presented by Military Talent Source SAN ANTONIO, Texas (May 11, 2020) — After a successful debut season in 2019, teams throughout central and south Texas are hard at work in their shops, as the Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) gets set to open its second season of competition on Saturday, May 16, at I-37 Speedway. Series officials went to work during the off-season to expand the schedule, taking teams to different venues. While the popular I-37 will continue to serve as home base, the series will also make its debut at Monarch Motor Speedway (Wichita Falls) and 105 Speedway (Cleveland) in 2020. “I really think we're all in for a very competitive and exciting second season with our trucks,” series founder and president George Jones said. “I'm excited about the five races we have at I-37, and I'm revved up about going to Wichita Falls and to Cleveland, as well. New tracks help reach new fans. “We've got most of the guys rebuilding their trucks, going all through them to prepare for a brand new season. I know we'll see a few new faces, and they're welcome to join our growing family. I know our new media partners will help us reach more fans. I can't wait to get this season started.” Leading the charge into I-37 is defending series point champion Larry Baggett, of Burnet, TX. Baggett has gone all through his No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado and is gearing up in a big way for 2020. “Winning the inaugural series title last year was a career highlight for me,” Baggett said. “We made a ton of great friends, had some exciting races and learned a lot about chassis setups. Now, we've got some good notes to go on and can improve our program. We're after race wins and another title.” Looking to challenge Baggett as he defends that crown are dedicated racers like Russell Rust, Tony Bernal, Russ Parker, Ryan Doyon, John Heil, Michael Keylich and Daniel Gaudette. It won't be a cakewalk by any stretch for the reigning champion, and he knows he'll have his work cut out for him.

PhilWhipple posted a topic in Announcements, Press Releases, and ResultsFor immediate release: TDTS Public Relations Contact: Phil Whipple Twitter: @PhilWhipple (Photo credit: Jay Hallas) Heil dominates season finale at I-37 Speedway for Texas Dirt Truck Series, Presented by Military Talent Source PLEASANTON, Texas (Nov. 18, 2019) — Veteran short track driver John Heil put on another oval racing clinic over the weekend, leading every lap of the 2019 Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) season finale on Saturday night at I-37 Speedway. Heil, of Floresville, earned his third TDTS victory of the season driving the rocket-fast No. 96 entry owned by Rick Pollaro. Heil started on the pole after winning the eight-lap qualifier earlier in the evening. Tony Bernal (La Vernia) finished second in the feature, while Russ Parker (Seguin) filled out the podium in third. After jumping into oval racing straight from the drag strip, Parker made big gains. Cedar Creek native and Cotton Bowl regular Daniel Gaudette crossed the stripe in fourth, while two-time TDTS feature winner Ryan Doyon of LaCoste completed the top five. Only a single caution slowed the pace for a minor spin by Larry Baggett in the early going. Baggett, of Marble Falls, chose to take it easy in the series finale and drove to a casual seventh-place finish to lock up the 2019 TDTS points championship. In nine races, the former Street Stock regular at Cotton Bowl kept his head down and stayed focused on the big prize. “Winning this championship is a very special feeling,” Baggett said. “We've had such a great time competing in this series. It's more like family than anything, but to win races and the inaugural title means the world to us. We can't wait to unload and prepare for 2020. We'll be back for more fun.” Other drivers competing in the season finale include Michael Keylich (sixth) and Russell Rust (eighth), two drivers who supported the TDTS throughout the inaugural season. Saturday's season finale was part of the track's annual Redneck Stress relief program, the track's final event of 2019. Series promoter and director George Jones would like to extend a sincere thank you to TDTS presenting partner Military Talent Source, Ray Doyon and Michael Keylich at I-37, Stevie Whitaker Jr. at South Texas Speedway, Mary Ann Naumann at Cotton Bowl, Rachel & Kenny Densman at Texana Raceway and every team that participated in this inaugural season. Your support made the series thrive. From a humble start in March to a popular and growing extended family by mid November, the Texas Dirt Truck Series went from a concept with merit to a proven entity in 2019. In 2020, Jones will take the series to a few more tracks to reach more race fans. The real fun, it seems, has just begun. Military Talent Source matches veteran talent with career opportunity.

rebelracewriter posted a topic in Announcements, Press Releases, and ResultsTexas Dirt Truck Series Finale @ I-37 Speedway by R&M Promotions, 11/16/19 By JM Hallas Pleasanton, TX.(Nov. 16Th, 2019) The 2019 racing season on the ¼ mile, semi-banked dirt track got a one week reprieve after rain delayed it last weekend. Sadly the tracks racing comes to an end tonight with the Redneck Stress Relief show and championship night for the Texas Dirt Truck Series. Larry Baggett looks to wrap up the championship pretty much by just starting the race coming in with a 20 point advantage over Russell Rust. Tony Bernal, Russ Parker and John Heil round out the top five. Baggett has had a good season picking up two wins early in the season, along with three seconds and two third place finishes. Others picking up wins this year are Ryan Doyon(2) sharing the ride with Talon Minten(1). Anthony Gordon and John Heil have also scored victories while running a partial schedule. Heil Hustles to Win, Baggett Secures Title In the Texas Dirt Truck Series season-ender it was John Heil(Floresville) going flag to flag for the victory. Heil, who won the heat, started on the pole and beat Tony Bernal into turn 1 for the lead. Heil and Bernal began to ease away from Russ Parker and Daniel Gaudette who were side by side and swapping third. By halfway Heil was pulling away from Bernal while Parker and Gaudette continued their scrap for third. As the white flag was shown it was Heil, by a half straightaway advantage over Bernal easily taking the checkers unchallenged in his Rick Pollaro owned, BMF Shocks and Chassis Truck. Points contender, Larry Baggett, who wrapped up the championship by taking the green flag had some woes throughout the race going around at the start and could never get back towards the lead group. His seventh place was his worst of the year, but enough to become the inaugural TDTS champion in his Reeses Truck Pieces, Bear Racing, Signs To Go, Langley, By The Bay Lawncare, crate powered, Chevy. Texas Dirt Truck Series 96 John Heil, 81 Tony Bernal, 28 Russ Parker, 5 Daniel Gaudette, 43 Ryan Doyon, 77 Michael Keylich, 3 Larry Baggett, 5m Russell Rust TDTS heat Heat 1; 96 John Heil, 81 Tony Bernal, 5 Daniel Gaudette, 3 Larry Baggett, 5m Russell Rust, 43 Ryan Doyon, 77 Michael Keylich “We had an amazing season this year,” replied series champ Baggett. “Coming into it we never dreamed that we would wind up being champions at the end of the year. But with family and friends pulling together we got the truck together at the last minute and won the very first race. It was a sweet, sweet victory.” “This is my first championship ever. We've finished fourth in the Street Stock class at Cotton Bowl two years ago and started with the trucks this year. I knew we'd have a top five truck at least, but was never expecting this.” “I think winning the first race would have to be the sweetest. We blew the motor in the truck testing at Cotton Bowl. We got the new crate motor in three days before the first race here. My friends came together and we got running at midnight. Went to load it up and we didn't have any gears. It wouldn't go in first, reverse, anything. We scrambled fixing that, got it on the trailer and got down here and wound up taking home the win.” “All these guys are fast, good guys. I love racing with them. I look forward to racing with them again next year. We'll need to get a better set to keep up with them. These guys are amazing helping one another. I love it and we're going to continue with the truck next year.”
