  5. TSTRS - Input needed

    If anyone has any input on a new dirt/asphalt class or series for Texas racing - please email me about it. Tell me what dirt class you think would be the best to do some crossover racing with so it is cost-effective and will not take away from dirt or asphalt but could enhance racing as a whole in 2020. I am thinking maybe 6 races next year? Maybe more if it works - and possibly introduce the class at TSTRS last race this year - Nov 9th? Just possibilities. Please accompany each opinion with a 'why' I have been talking with a few of you, but I am told how there are many others with very strong opinions by the handful I have spoken with. I would like to hear from you! gina@txarp.com In the subject please add: Dirt Crossover Class/Series I need some more help! Gina Schild Knowles (713) 907-0906 gina@txarp.com *******Don't forget to come out to HMP - Saturday, August 31st for the Advance Auto Parts Labor Day Classic!!
  6. Hey guys! I have totally dropped the ball on utilizing LoneStarSpeedzone.com, and I apologize. One of the most challenging things about promoting TSTRS is communicating with the drivers away from the track. You guys use cell phones, HOME phones, email, LoneStarSpeedzone.com, text messages and Facebook. Not everyone uses Facebook, some only use their cell phone, some don't talk only text, and some us email but forget to check it regularly. That is on my punch list of things to figure out a 'best' solution for! I am not posting this on the tstrseries.com page, because sponsors and fans see that information too. This is more of an after the first race update of info and status for the teams, drivers and racing family. So if anyone knows someone that only uses Facebook, please share this with them somehow for me. Race Day was absolutely crazy, from about 10 minutes after we arrived until we walked the last fan out to his car. To say the day controlled us more than we controlled it would be a huge understatement. But, on Sunday morning my household felt very appreciative. Exhausted, humbled and appreciative. Which brings me to the point of this post - to tell you guys thank you for getting behind this. Thank you for the positive environment. Thank you for sharing posts, liking posts, coming out to events, participating in events, listening in on the shows, liking sponsor pages, liking their posts, shopping sponsors - just on helping every effort we put forth, out. Just helping out in any way you can, even if it meant coming to watch the race or liking Facebook pages. Every little thing matters. Those little things are what a company like Advance Auto Parts sees directly. If you cannot make it out to the track to support racing, make a commitment to support racing by supporting our sponsors. But when you support them, you tell them why you are supporting them too! All of this adds up, and all of it helps us race more often. Here is a list of current sponsors you can show love too, and new ones will be being announced next week and leading up to race day. Advance Auto Parts KBR Towing LLC inkDOTS Precision Piping Products David Starr Racing In Wheel Time on ESPN 97.5 RaceonTexas.com RevvedUpSportsShow - RUSS Ok, I will stop preaching. Advance is happy with us. We are in a good place heading into the August 31st race. I am closer to announcing the date for the media/open practice day. Two options are mid-September or mid-October. We cannot afford to have an open practice without choosing a date that is smart on accommodating the media and potential sponsors. And that is the delay in selecting the date, so bear with me. Any questions, complaints, comments - please reach out to me. If you have a sponsor idea or need help with your sponsor call me. I will help in any way I can, and some of you may have a sponsor that has been with you for a very long time that needs a thank you. Please reach out to me and let me see what we can do to help make that the kind of thank you that helps you race more in 2020. Because we will be racing more in 2020. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

  7. Good Monday morning everyone! What a race day! I must say that as my first race promoting, it was exhausting, but in a good way. I am very humbled to be able to promote a sport I have been around my entire life. I still have a lot to learn, but I look forward to the next race - which is Saturday, August 31st. I will get the schedule updated on tstrseries.com, and a link to results as well. They are posted on here by Mr. Nick Holt! Thank you Nick. The race day photographer, Carey Akin was out there to get you guys some shots. Here is the link to practice day AND race day as well. Friday Practice: https://manvelmotorsports.smugmug.com/More-Auto-Racng/Houston-Motorsports-Park-05-July-2019/ Saturday Practice: https://manvelmotorsports.smugmug.com/More-Auto-Racng/Houston-Motorsports-Park-06-July-2019/ I want to thank everyone for coming out, car count was up and we had a great crowd, but most importantly Advance Auto Parts had a great time. I loved the positive comments from everyone, even when it was H O T outside. I know the Pit bathrooms were not good, but I had ordered a trailer and it was by the media room. My plan was to put it by the other bathrooms but the connections there would not hold it there. I will be doing this until we can get the bathrooms in the pits right for you guys. We did fix up the concession bathrooms, and I know it was hot but the more you can walk to the fan concessions & bathrooms in your driver's suit, the more it helps the fans engage with racing too! If I did not get to see you, I apologize. I chased my tail some of the day but, this great TSTRS team did a great job! Brad Bush & Tiffany Vogel & Rodney Rodriguez are the bomb and helped me keep things flowing with the crowd and in the pits. We had racing done by 9:40pm and the big fireworks show by 10pm. That was a big goal for us, and very much needed to keep this a family experience!! In addition to showing the track photographer some love by ordering some shots from him, show some love to all of our sponsors by liking their Facebook pages, commenting on their social media posts, shopping with them or just sharing their names when needed! inkDOTS Professional PrintingAlamo Speed ShopSmiley’s Racing productsHoosier TiresRaceOnTexas.comKBR Towing ServiceDavid Starr RacingDIY RentalsBWFS Industries LLCRedco ToolsIn Wheel Time, ESPN 97.5P3 Precision Piping Products Advance Auto Parts TechNet Professional Shops Thank you for coming out to race, we could not do it without you guys.

  8. If you have gotten promo items together for crowd distribution at this Saturday's race, please email gina@txarp.com. We will collect the things from you Friday night OR when you come to registration. If you want to do Crowd Driver Promos with your stuff, please get the Driver Info form back to me now (take a pic and email to gina@txarp.com please do not text it to me, and try to get a good picture ). If you have sponsor things but you do not want to be a part of Driver Promos with the crowd, not a problem. Bring the driver info form to registration along with your things. We very much appreciate you contributing stuff and will gladly get it out for you and your sponsor! THIS RACE WILL NOT HAVE AN ON THE TRACK INTERMISSION, WE WILL HAVE THE FIREWORKS SHOW INSTEAD. If we received everything from you, we will have your Driver Promo time & instructions for you at Registration! Thank you to everyone that is participating!!

    I will be putting the TSTRS rules up on the website - www.tstrseries.com later today. These are exactly the same as what the T-STARS rules are currently. Now, I know some of you guys pointed out some things we need to look at - and we will. But right now, we are focused on the July race and making that happen. I hope if the current TSTAR rules have kept you from competing, you will at least come and contribute to racing by being a fan! After the July race, we are looking at what we need to modify, change or address. If you have any concerns with the rules package - EVEN IF YOU HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT THEM IN THE PAST and there has been no resolution, email me about it so I can table it with Denny Burton & Brad Bush. I have attached the TSTAR rules here that I will be posting to the website later. If you have questions about them moving forward after today, you can find them at tstrseries.com. Thanks guys!

Saturday, July 6th - Houston Motorsports Park Advance Auto Parts added an 'AAP Fast 6 $1000' twist to the Pro Truck race and is looking forward to seeing some trucks at their stores in the next two weeks at events. I am still looking for a couple of trucks to do appearances in the next two weeks. I do not have dates yet, will be this weekend before I know them. Send your info to me or Taylor if you can commit to a two-hour event, with the driver and Pro Truck spit-shined.{ taylor@tstrseries.com } Additionally, AAP is paying $$ on the Pro Truck heats. Super Stocks get some extra $$ in their heat races as well as Eco Stock, also courtesy of Advance Auto Parts. Be sure to pop into any Houston-area Advance Auto Parts retail location and pick up a $5 discount voucher for the race. If you are out of town and need some vouchers, reach out to me so I can get some to you. Drivers, I cannot stress enough the importance of coming to HMP on July 6th, whether you are racing or not. If you cannot come, talk it up for others to come out. Please! Things are moving slowly, but they are moving forward. I need your help to keep that momentum going! Plus, thank you to the T-STARS folks, we will have a great Fireworks show! Does anyone know a couple of jets we can use for a fly by? Let's get to Racing!

All TSTRS registration fees waived for 2019. EDIT (06/21/19)****** We are planning to pay the purse on race night. Pending no power outages, or computer crashes or anything that interferes with the process of determining the winners! ***** gina
  19. We are still putting together the purse, we will get it up here as soon as it is finalized. The classes racing are the same as what T-STARS had scheduled, see below. We am still working on putting the race day together and will shoot that out as soon as it is done. Eco Stocks Legacys Pro Modified Naskarts Outlaws Super Stock Trucks We will be making sponsor announcements starting sometime this week, so watch for those! It is a big push of momentum for you guys to support those sponsors after you read the announcements in some way - like their Facebook pages, Instagrams etc. Interact with their posts by commenting, or liking. Sharing their pages with other and saying why you shared it. Each and everything we are doing leading up to and competing at this event is being measured. The more there is to measure, the more we can keep the momentum positive and moving forward guys. Please help me do this on things I post on social media. Facebook.com/TexasShortTrackRacingSeries and Instagram : @Texas_Short_Track_Racing_HMP We will be having some shows at local Advance Auto Parts leading up to the July 6th race. I am looking for drivers and cars that would be interested in doing this so I will have a list of people to call when Advance may need support from us. Shoot me your info - driver, class and contact information - email to gina@txarp.com. I will be shooting an email to each car owner with info I need to capture from you for myself & Rodney to make sure we get your sponsors a shout out on race day and when you race. Please send this back to me asap. This email request will be coming from taylor@tstrseries.com or mine, gina@txarp.com - keep an eye out. Lastly, for this first race, I am looking for giveaways we can get out to the fans all during race day between races that I can add to the Advance Auto Parts giveaways. I need this in the form of hats, t-shirts, stickers, etc. Do not put a strain on anyone's budgets to get these things for me, it is mainly to enhance the July 6th show and to give back to sponsors and to show potential sponsors in the stands ways the LOCAL racing community gives back. I know it has been a tough road for everyone, Raymond, Amy & Aaron blazed a very brave trail at a time there was NOTHING racing on asphalt in Texas but NASCAR. That takes a tremendous effort. Now, I need to ask for more support from you guys in car count or fan count too. If you cannot race, come watch and bring people to watch. If you are NOT racing because of rules, STILL contribute to the sport you love by talking about the race and coming to the race. I cannot fix anything in the rules if I cannot make the racing happen. I so very much appreciate all the messages of support, support at functions and valuable input - keep it coming. I will have some official posters and lots of handout cards by Thursday or Friday to give to you to put in your businesses or handout. Let me know where you are and I will deliver them personally or have my daughter, Taylor Knowles deliver them. My email is gina@txarp.com. My cell is 713.907.0906. I will get back to you. Thank you guys! Gina Schild Knowles TXARP, Texas Asphalt Racing Promotions DBA Texas Short Track Racing Series PS - Share this message with other racers. Pictured Below - One of our Media Sponsors...we will be chatting racing with them this Saturday in the studio 12 - 2pm. Live on their Facebook page and on ESPN 97.5 FM simultaneously. I will remind you on the series Facebook page and before the show goes live on Saturday I will post a link to tach on Facebook if needed.
  20. It was a beautiful day for the Tailpipes & Tacos event held at Lupe Tortilla's on Grand Parkway in Katy. We were there supporting one of TSTRS Sponsors - In Wheel Time, which airs every Saturday on ESPN 97.5 and simultaneously on their Facebook Page - facebook.com/InWheelTime. They featured driver of the #7 TSTRS Pro Truck, Zoey Barker on the broadcast (see below). We also had Mike Mecum out representing with his #74 TSTRS Eco Stock car. Thanks to both for helping us get people out to The Oval @ HMP to watch some racing. Check out Zoey's interview & the full day's show below. Zoey goes on about 31:45 into the video. We had a slight oops in the interview, Don accidentally called her the Pro Truck Champion. This is not the case as of this interview. But Don said he was sorry, to he calls all racers champions. NOTE: Tailpipes & Tacos is on the 3rd Saturday of the month, at Lupe Tortilla's, Grand Parkway. It always supports a good cause, great tacos, Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's. Check it out! NOTE: In Wheel Time airs every Saturday from other events and sometimes from the ESPN studios by the Galleria.

  22. HMP/TSTRS Info

    Hey HMP/TSTRS Race Teams! If you are interested in some signage around the perimeter of the track let me know. The image of the track below, from pole to pole horizontally it is 12.5' - 13.5' apart. These signs will be a banner material and will be 8.5' tall and 18' - 24' wide. We are working with a sign company now to determine that. They will be up for the July 6th Advance Auto Parts Firecracker Blowout through July 2020. There is a $250 production cost, and the sign is $1000. I know that is a lot, and if you get any push back from your sponsors when trying to sell them because well, we are a risk - then I will invoice them quarterly for the cost of the sign, $250 each payment. But up front, they have to pay a $250 production fee plus the first payment of $250. The production cost covers design and (1) change out during the year if needed. I will make sure we keep them looking fresh. NOW- if you are a race team or a driver and this sign is a sponsor of your race team on your race car, uniforms or hauler I will give you back $100 every time they make a payment including the first one. Now I will say this, I am not going to chase your sponsor for money if they do not pay their invoice. I will take the sign down before any race if they are behind on payments. I do electronic invoicing, they click to pay it with any credit card. After the year, they can have the sign. I have a minimal amount of signs I can afford to do this on, so let me know quickly. These are the signs that our wonderful Race Announcer - Rodney Rodriguez will be talking about during your race - because he will know which signs go with which class/drivers etc. These are also the signs the track photographer can snap a picture of your race car in front of to give to your sponsors to show off. Have you seen his pictures? They are great! You can park your race car, team, hauler, etc in front of the sign and take pictures for hero cards, whatever you need to do to make it worth your sponsors' investment, I will work with you to make happen. Please note: I do have some current sponsor exclusivities that can impact what companies I can display, so email me the details if you are interested. And I cannot take any pre-printed banners. **UPDATE - Signs start going up Monday, June 24th. (thank you Chris Schild for the awesome track pics!)

  23. Hello racing community! We have an event where we can support our Sponsor/Partners - In Wheel Time. They will be recording their broadcast at Lupe Tortillas (703 W Grand Parkway - Katy), which will air immediately afterward at their regular time - Saturday 12p - 2pm show. You can catch the show two ways - listen in on ESPN 97.5 or watch and listen on their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/InWheelTime/ TAILPIPES & TACOS supports Shirley's Kids, a non-profit founded by Shirley Muldowney for underprivileged kiddos. In Wheel Time supports TSTRS - Texas Short Track Racing Series by promoting the races, the series, the track. We will be a feature on their shows throughout the remaining year and 2020 through live appearances, call-ins or simple adverts during the show. No financial cost to the series - we just support them right back. I want to define that support - coming to events, talking about the events to others so they can come out, liking their Facebook page, tuning in to their show on Facebook and commenting/interacting with the live show, interacting on their Facebook page. How I came about these guys is when Don Armstrong (Airborne Reporter & Videographer for Ch 13) came to the Meyer Speedway Reunion because he got hooked on racing in the Playland Park days. This man loves asphalt circle track racing just like we do, and I was very lucky to come across him. He has been a huge help to me from when Raymond & The Hogans started the racing back up. In Wheel Time let me promote the racing the whole time Raymond's series ran - Texas Asphalt Racing Series. Now we are back at it again, so help me show them we appreciate their help. I hope to see you there - we will have some cars on display from the series. *****PLEASE NOTE - If you are open to some commitments through the year at events like this, Advance Auto Parts Store Events and other potential sponsors events please email me your info so I can start a call list. Let's get to Racing! Gina gina@txarp.com
