National Touring Series Headed to San Antonio Speedway


San Antonio, TX (March 23, 2006) – San Antonio Speedway’s biggest race of the decade is less than two weeks away. The Hill Country Satellite DirecTV Alamo 200 presented by Express Lube will highlight a two-day racing event that is scheduled at San Antonio Speedway on Friday, March 31, 2006, and Saturday, April 1, 2006.


More than 40 ASA Late Model Series teams are expected from all over the country, and drivers will be vying for a starting position in the Alamo 200 race. The ASA Late Model Series is making San Antonio Speedway its second stop on its 2006 national tour. The racing action presented by this series promises to be exciting for the fans as they watch ASA drivers compete for the $10,000 that will be awarded to the Alamo 200 winner.


“We’re especially pleased to see local sponsors like Express Lube and Hill Country Satellite team up with a national sponsor like DirecTV to bring this event to San Antonio Speedway,” stated Terry Dickerson, President and CEO of the USRA Track Management Group. “Hill Country Satellite and Express Lube are well-known businesses in the city of San Antonio and the surrounding area, and their sponsorship of the Alamo 200 is certainly appreciated.”


Doug O’Neal, President and CEO of Hill Country Satellite DirecTV, is excited about partnering with San Antonio Speedway. “Hill Country Satellite is proud to be working with San Antonio Speedway in bringing quality stock car racing to the Alamo City,” said O’Neal. “We’re looking at some exciting things to do this year at the speedway with DirecTV and our local race fans.”


Express Lube President Harold Smith is also proud to become a sponsor at San Antonio Speedway. “After many years of being a part of the races and seeing the growth in NASCAR, I’m looking forward to partnering with San Antonio Speedway,” stated Smith. “Express Lube is a family owned and operated business, and now we can become a part of the family-oriented atmosphere at the speedway.”


The racing action will start on Friday night at 8:00 p.m., beginning with feature races by the San Antonio Speedway NASCAR Late Model and Sportsman divisions. The USRA Modifieds and Trucks will also qualify for Saturday’s races. An ASA Late Model Series Happy Hour will follow USRA qualifying.


Saturday’s program will begin at 6:30 p.m., starting with USRA Modifieds and Trucks feature races. The Hill Country Satellite DirecTV Alamo 200 presented by Express Lube – featuring the ASA Late Model Series – will top off the evening.


San Antonio Speedway is the only NASCAR sanctioned short-track in the state of Texas. It is located 3.5 miles south of Loop 410 on State Highway 16 South towards Poteet, near the new Toyota facility.


Grandstand gates will open at 4:00 p.m. on both days. Friday’s admission is $15 for adults, $8 for seniors and Military (with ID) and $3 for children ages 7-12. Children six and under are admitted free.
