Labor Day Blowout at SOS

Recommended Posts

We are less than two days away from the South Texas Street Stock Shootout heading back to the beautiful Shady Oaks Speedway for a two night Labor Day Weekend Blowout. It will be the first of two, two night events remaining on the schedule and things are starting to get interesting in the Championship Standings.

Wade Jones is the current points leader (935) with Heath Stewart within striking distance (898). Edward Oakes is third with 840 but medical issues have ended his season. We all wish him well and hope to see him at the track soon. That leaves Anthony Gordon (839) and Brian Rye (819) rounding out the top 5 but wanting to get on the podium in Championship standings. Jones looking to recover from a disappointing showing at South Texas Speedway this past weekend and everyone in the field trying to move up as the season nears an end.

It's been nearly 3 months since STXSSS has been to SOS with Stewart claiming the victory. I'm sure he will be looking to add his fourth win of the season and try to reel in Jones for that title. Gordon will look to close the gap on the front two while trying to keep Rye (-20) behind him. Gordon took the Drop Back Bonus in June at SOS and worked his way back up to 5th. With Shady Oaks Speedway the only track south of Austin/Houston running this weekend, should be a great show with the best Street Stock drivers in Texas flying around the 1/3 mile surface in Goliad, TX.

 

The South Texas Street Stock Shootout is proud to return to Shady Oaks Speedway for a two night show and would like to thank the SOS family and staff for accommodating this show. Saturday night will also feature the SOS Classics, Pure Stocks, Limited Modified and Modified for a regular race program. Sunday evening, the Pure Stocks and Limited Modified (non points) will provide the support classes and gates open at 3, races start at 5 Sunday. We hope you can join the fun and support STXSSS and SOS this weekend.

 

Some notes from STXSSS concerning this weekend:
Saturday night for the STXSSS will be qualifying. Format will consist of each street stock running (2) heat races. We will advance the top 12 drivers with the most points from Saturdays heat races straight into Sundays Main event. Top 12 drivers will line up based on their season point average. 25 Bonus Points will be awarded to all drivers that participate in Saturdays program.

Sunday night we will qualify the remaining 12 drivers and the heat race format will depend on total car count and how many are left to qualify.

We are waiving registration fees for the remainder of the year with only a few races left.
Entry fee for the 2 day show is $25.

Best Western Inn in Goliad is also giving a racer's rate for this weekend.
