  1. This is one of the packages offered in the 2020 TSTRS Sponsor Booklets. It is an excellent entry-level sponsorship as well as a great conversation starter too. Racers can sell this package or build their own sponsor package around it. If you sell it at the published price of $1750, the profit is $1,117. You get $817 when the sponsor pays. And $300 goes to your class 2020 points fund. If you sell it at a discount price of $1500, the profit is $867. You get $567 when the sponsor pays. And $300 goes to your class 2020 points fund. It must be the Full Coverage Signage Combo package and it would be subject to approval by the series for some exclusivities we have signed for 2020. I can add your racing logo to the pricing sheet if you want to use it in your presentation. For more details and specifics, please reach out to me! My goal here is to give you guys something to sell that helps us both AND racing at HMP. If you need help, please ask. Feel free to pull pictures of the race track off the series webpage for your presentations. Link is below, scroll down below the track video for the pictures. Click on them to open them, when you find one you like the best drag and drop it! https://www.texasshorttrackracingseries.com/gallery/ Gina Schild Knowles (713) 907-0906 gina@txarp.com PS - I will need some help putting signs up at our first practice in Feb 2020!
  2. UPDATED PRACTICE & RACE DAY SCHEDULE -- We added the Dwarf cars.
  3. Good morning guys! Car counts each race so far is listed below (I have corrected the T-STARS June race numbers that I had incorrect on the last car count post.) I am very excited about the growth we are having in our core classes! I do hear there are more cars being built, purchased and getting ready to race. I do believe we have a great show! This past race (Oct 19th) we brought Intermission back into the schedule, added laps, ran an extra feature for the Eco Stock class, introduced Checkered Flag victory laps AND on- track interviews for the winners of the core classes - and we STILL finished at 9:30 pm. And I do want to say that by finishing early, most fans stay and watch ALL the racing, which helps the last race of the evening get some fan love too! We will be changing some things up for this last race - TechNet Speedfest 2019 on Nov 9th, in efforts to learn some more about the timing of the show and the presentation to the fans. Which - we hope to have more of this coming race FOR SURE! (GO Astros - hurry up and win the World Series!) And speaking of wanting more people to come out and watch - share our poster all over social media - bring a friend to the track, bring more family - whatever it takes to close out our 2019 on a great foot! Thank you racers & racing family for all your support and for bringing it when we need it the most! Looking forward to the season finale!!

  5. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Gina Schild Knowles, General Manager Texas Short Track Racing Series gina@txarp.com (713) 907-0906 Race Rainout for Saturday’s Advance Auto Parts Race Night at The Oval at Houston Motorsports Park [Houston, TX, September 25, 2019] Due to a weekend forecast of 50% chance of rain at Weather.com, the Advance Auto Parts Race Night scheduled for this Saturday, September 28 is cancelled. Gina Schild Knowles, General Manager for the Texas Short Track Racing Series, says “Of course it’s a tough call when it comes to Houston weather. We wanted to give our fans and race teams as much notice as possible to adjust their plans, especially since the area is recovering from the devastation caused by Tropical Storm Imelda, and there’s a good chance more rain is on the way. We look forward to seeing everyone at the next asphalt race, Advance Auto Parts OctoberFast at The Oval at Houston Motorsports Park, Saturday, October 19 – just three weeks away!” Plan now to come out and enjoy a nice autumn night under the stars! This family-friendly event will feature eight racing classes, including: Pro Trucks, Pro Modifieds, Outlaws, Eco Stocks, NASKarts and Super Stocks, plus Allison Legacy, as well as a checkered flag giveaway, free face painting for the kids, and $2 Bud Light cans. See all the action at 11620 N Lake Houston Pkwy, Saturday, October 19 - Gates open at 4pm; Heat races kick off at 5pm, Intermission and Features start at 7pm. ### About Texas Short Track Racing Series The Texas Short Track Racing Series is an asphalt circle track racing series in Houston, Texas, competing at Houston Motorsports Park.

  6. Good Wednesday morning racers. I wanted to let you know that I am calling this Saturday as a Rain Out. We will not be racing, no practice on Friday. All the forecast vary from 30 - 60 percent and have changed for the last 2 weeks almost daily. As of right now weather.com has Saturday at 50% chance f rain and Sunday at 40%. I literally have checked four weather websites hourly for the past two days and after talking with Advance Auto Parts yesterday, I decided to make a call. If it turns out to be a nice day, I apologize. This is probably the hardest decision I have made so far. While I feel we could probably get some racing in, the forecasting affects the fans coming in to watch you guys. The heavy thunderstorms are projected right around gate opening time and early evening on Saturday. May or may not necessarily be at the race track, but around it and other spots over Houston - which impacts the main place we can make money, the front gate. Since we are not profitable right now, the risk is even greater at this stage for us. Especially with a race coming up quickly afterward on Oct 19th. I could pull from my Advance Auto Parts 2020 monies if I got into a bind from a rainout, but I promised myself I would not gamble with 2020s game plan. Not gambling is something racers don't usually consider, but I am already risking so much that I have to make smart choices for remaining races this year (Oct 19th and Nov 9) and the 10 dates for next year. If I had the luxury of waiting to make this call without having to put up rent, I would wait one more day. But Dean already gave me an extra day to make that call. I hope you guys understand and please keep in mind - we started putting everything together four weeks before the July 6th race. FOUR. We started almost completely from scratch on the operations side - new team, new computers, new point of sale systems, new internet coverage...... We collected no registration fees, no previous sponsor monies, nothing. Long story short, I am invested in you guys. And I appreciate all of your support & input and ask you to stay invested in racing with me and this team. Every day I am selling - you can help me out with that if you want! As I said on RUSS - Revved Up Sports Show, I will offer a commission to anyone pointing me to a successful relationship or will put it towards a class purse of your choice. Packages are listed below. If there is a conflict of interests on anything presented to me I will let you know. Thanks, guys - please share with other racers. Watch for the new Oct 19th details to be released soon!

  7. TSTRS Question

    I had a media person ask me what tracks in Texas would I recommend visiting on a road trip across Texas. And the question stumped me a little because I really do not know what tracks are still operating to recommend? (besides the ones close to me of course) Can you guys help me give them a good answer? Texas tracks dirt or asphalt, please. Is there a Facebook Page for this question as well that you may know of?
  8. Help me sell the track signage! I have new signs going up next race - I want to add some more to it! Here are two highlight videos that show track signs and some of the 'walk-in' signage. And don't forget - All the track signage gets talked about by Rodney our awesome Race MC during the race! When they buy the BIG THREE, they get the drive-in coverage, walk-in coverage and track coverage too. Additionally, if they give us stuff to throw into the audience we can make sure to plug them as BIG THREE track supporter! Pass a name along to me - I am cold calling this week and will include them. If I sell them, I will have a check for you for 10% of the selling price at the track OR additional $ on the class purse you choose. Gina (713) 907-0906 gina@txarp.com
  9. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Gina Schild Knowles, General Manager Texas Short Track Racing Series gina@txarp.com, (713) 907-0906 Advance Auto Parts Labor Day Classic Oval Asphalt Race Brings This Texas Legends’ Comeback to Victory Lane! Houston, TX (September 5, 2019) – When Pearland native and “Texas Legend” Greg Davidson took to the ⅜ mile asphalt Oval at Houston Motorsports Park (HMP) last Saturday afternoon, it was with great anticipation. After a four year struggle resulting in the unexpected loss of his left leg from an infection, 40+ year racing veteran Greg had decided retirement wasn’t for him, and challenged himself and the Davidson crew of family and friends to make a racing comeback. In March, Team Davidson and the #96 car returned to the HMP track for the first time since Greg’s recovery, receiving a warm welcome by the fans and his fellow racers he’d missed so much. The track pits were a-buzz with the excitement of Greg’s return, with tons of greetings, hugs and well wishes. By June, things were starting to turn around. Greg was proving he could still be competitive, despite his physical challenges. Coming in fourth and sixth in the Outlaw class features was a huge achievement and just the confidence boost he needed. The August trip to the Oval was going to be different. Interviewing Greg after the June race, Rodney Rodriguez, track announcer and radio host of the Revved Up Sports Show, had predicted big things for Greg. They had imagined getting a win in Houston…and Greg promised he would work until that happened, and then he would “win some more. Can’t stop with just one!” He was comfortable in the car, but needed to get at ease between the brake and throttle. Greg says, “Sometimes in racing you use both of your feet, one on the gas and one on the brake...so we needed to find a solution for that.” Without losing a step, Greg and his son, Chris Davidson, a talented racer himself, modified the car with a hand brake. The two took the car out to HMP for practice as much as possible and with Chris’ help Greg began to find his rhythm. The Advance Auto Parts Labor Day Classic fans were treated to the true reason why this man is called ”The Texas Legend”. His racing team and family were on point, ready to see this through to the win. Then it happened. In the first practice, and within 13 laps, Greg qualified fastest. He started on the pole position, then led the race from start to finish. Rodriquez called the race, and even went live on Facebook to share the moment with fans across the web. When Greg pulled into Victory Lane, and climbed out of the car, he knew he was back. Then Rodriguez shared Greg’s comeback story with the fans, and they went wild. Greg earned a long, heartfelt standing ovation from the crowd, and brought tears to many who watched this racing tale unfold. Gina Schild Knowles, General Manager for the Texas Short Track Racing Series (TSTRS), went straight to work to capture the excitement. Greg and his family joined her at the flag stand for a personal interview with Rodriguez. Fans learned about the determination and heart of this team and knew they had witnessed something special. Rodriquez asked, “In Greg Davidson’s chronology of important wins, where does this rank?” Greg says, “It’s probably one of the best ones. With the fans here, y’all here, and Gina and the whole crew, we couldn’t do this without it...Please come out and watch us again.” Advance Auto Parts and TSTRS are thrilled to host upcoming races at The Oval at Houston Motorsports Park on September 28 and October 19, where Greg plans to continue his comeback story. He’s back and The Texas Legend continues. https://www.facebook.com/rodney.rodriguez.1481/videos/10212427931927912/ https://soundcloud.com/revvedupsportsshow/russ-greg-davidson-1?fbclid=IwAR2SDEQgZKCCjuU6nPdWKtPdpuex-8OUfdOwFrPLLPl-WWt6QFVKwwCKwus davidsonelectric.com #RealRaceTalk #tstrs #tstrsseries #whatittakestorace #racehmp #AdvanceAutoParts ### About Texas Short Track Racing Series The Texas Short Track Racing Series is an asphalt circle track racing series in Houston, Texas, competing at Houston Motorsports Park.

  12. Hey guys! I want to start out by saying the comments, the participation, and efforts of all the racers, teams and family on getting things back on track and moving forward has been just awesome. It is truly what propels me forward. I cannot stress this enough, it is contagious and makes a huge impact on racing as a whole - dirt and asphalt! And while you are giving continuously, I need to ask for a little more help. As you know we are new guys, a new team. We are still putting the grease on, as the wheels start turning. We have a great team - I mean great! I should sell radio access to Brad Bush race directing. It would knock your socks off. That grace comes with a strong right hand, and he has that in Tiffany. That's for damn sure. Todd and JT can be put in any position at the track and be able to do it. And Denny in Tech, Jack..... - someone should total the years of experience in that one building alone. Mark Stevens has helped us keep the internet-connected so we can stay up and running, and that is a monumental FEAT. Wow. I feel like it is coming together, and am super excited at some things coming. However, there is something I need to get under control and need more help with. What I need from race teams is help keeping up with your passes you are paying for. I know this is a lot to manage, but it is even greater on our side. The radio calls I get from the front gate about people not having passes, or wondering why they have to pay or was told they get in free by someone they support....is off the charts. What results is a lot of people not paying, getting discounts or getting pissed off at the girls upfront. And then what results is I lose a good employee because of the frustration of the whole thing. We are going to offer early registration to all teams to help with this. But if you come to the track please bring your pit pass list and leave us a check or credit card info. If you want to pay for people coming out to watch you race, then we will have a list for that that people sign in on that will be added to the full tab. If there is a limit, tell us and we will cap it off. I am kind of disheartened how some underestimate the importance of paying for things right now. I ask you to please not take advantage of our growing pains, when we make an error on charging you please pay us correctly. If you rent a golf cart and we did not collect on it - please pay for it. If you hear someone say they somehow got in free and was not supposed to, pay us for them or give them crap about it. I am amazed at how many people claim to be someone they are not, to get a free pit pass. And then when that person comes up to collect their paid for pit pass, it takes extra time and results in lost revenue. Not to mention the stress it puts on the worker having to do it multiple times throughout the evening. Or having to ask for an ID for a dang pit pass. And if we make a mistake - tell us! We cannot get better if we do not know. There are new ways of doing things that we are evaluating so we can get you guys on the track as seamless as possible. Please help us with this process! Share ideas and thoughts with me - gina@tstrseries.com. If you want to prepay for anything, email my daughter, Taylor - taylor@tstrseries.com. Entry fees, pit passes, etc If it rains out, it will roll to the next race. If for some reason you cannot make it, you will get refunded or can apply it to the next race. For those of you racers who bring your list with a check or credit card, THANK YOU! Thank everyone for your patience and support! Let's get to racing! Next race Sept 28th Gina (713) 907-0906 gina@txarp.com

  19. 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!!
  20. 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.

  21. 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.
