  1. For immediate release: TDTS Public Relations Contact: Phil Whipple Tel: 207.689.6630 Officials announce partnership with Military Talent Source New presenting sponsor for Texas Dirt Truck Series SAN ANTONIO, Texas (June 8, 2019) — Officials at the new Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) announced on Saturday a new partnership with national recruiting firm Military Talent Source, LLC, headquartered in Maine. 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. To learn more about this great company, visit them online at www.militarytalentsource.com. “We're fortunate to have Matt, his partner Stephen Milks and their entire company supporting our efforts,” Jones added. “Their support of racing is well known in Maine and is about to be in Texas, as well. I truly appreciate their faith in us. 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. After the June 8 event at South Texas Speedway, the series returns to the familiar confines of I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, on Saturday, June 29.

  2. For immediate release: TDTS Public Relations Contact: Phil Whipple Twitter: @PhilWhipple Officials add new race at Texana Raceway for Texas Dirt Truck Series Teams will converge in Edna, TX on June 8 SAN ANTONIO, Texas (March 16, 2019) — As the season opener at I-37 Speedway draws ever closer, officials at the new Texas Dirt Truck Series (TDTS) have announced a new race date. On Saturday, June 8, the TDTS will visit the famed Texana Raceway in Edna, Texas. This well maintained 5/16-mile clay oval is home to some of the finest grassroots racing the Lone Star state has to offer. The track hosts six exciting classes every other week from late March through mid October. “We're proud to be making a visit to Texana Raceway during our inaugural season,” series co-owner George Jones said. “They have a reputation for putting on solid shows, and we plan to give their fans a reason to cheer. It's an excellent addition to our schedule, one I feel the drivers will really enjoy.” Teams at Texana will kick off their new season on March 30. There are 15 points-paying races on tap for 2019, along with visits from popular tours like the ASCS Sprint Car Series, the SUS Sprint Car Series and the POWRi Lonestar 600 Mini Sprints. It's a busy season until the finale on Oct. 12. “Their fans get treated to some world class short track action on a regular basis,” series co-owner Mike Fortier said. “I think they'll enjoy seeing our trucks go at it on their home turf. This is a state-wide series, and we're proud to be racing at Texana. We're fortunate to have this opportunity.” Texana Raceway first opened back in 1987. Despite being closed in 1990-91, it reopened in 1992 and has developed a solid fan base in recent years. After a successful race last fall, track promoter Rachel Densman and husband Kenny are adding IMCA Modifieds to their Saturday programs in 2019 as part of the South Central region. “We're excited to be bringing the new Texas Dirt Truck Series to Texana,” Densman said. “We know how popular trucks are in this state, and we think George and Mike have a good concept with this series. I'm anxious to see them turn laps at our place, and I think our fans are in for a treat on June 8.” Collin Hodges won the 2018 Limited Modified championship at Texana, while Adam Perks captured the Street Stock title. Johnny Westfall claimed the Pure Stock crown, while the Dwarf Car-ModLite title went to Victor Vargas. Edna, Texas, is located roughly 100 miles southwest of Houston. To learn more about this fan-friendly facility, known as “Your favorite small town dirt track,” go to www.texanaraceway.com. 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 Texan's love for pickup trucks.

  5. The video says it all. I apologize to the 71 car, was not your fault. Passing in the grass, on the inside, even before the start finish line, wrecking out three cars. Unacceptable.
