AllStar Race Truck Series at Thunder Hill

Plus the Return of the Australian Pursuit


Kyle -- Brian Callaway has the Lone Star AllStar Race Truck Series at Thunder Hill Raceway here Saturday night, July 26, but that's just the beginning. He'll also feature an event that hasn't been run here in the last few years, an "Australian Pursuit," on Stardust Club & Billiards/South 40 "Night at the Races."


Robert Walton hasn't won a race all year, but he leads the Lone Star Region ARTS series. Jon Garrett has won three times, but he's in third place. In national points, it's a different story: Garrett is in third, with Walton eighth. Garrett just won his fourth in a row last weekend at Wichita Falls. Saturday night, they'll be at Walton's home track. Garrett has another edge: he sells ARTS truck parts, and there may be a few trucks that need them after Saturday night.


At the same time, Callaway is running an Australian Pursuit as an added feature. Always a crowd favorite, the Australian Pursuit involves lining up the cars and turning them loose. The rules are simple: if you get passed, you pull off the track; you're out of the race. If you're the last car across the finish line on any lap, you're out. Last car on the track wins the money.


The Satellite Country USA Late Models are off this week, but the A-Line Auto Parts Street Stocks and the Hobby Stocks will add their thrills to the night. The spectator gate opens at 5:30 and the ARTS trucks begin time trials at six, followed by opening ceremonies and the first race.


Thunder Hill Raceway is 17 miles south of Austin on the east side of IH 35. Take the Yarrington Road exit (Exit 210) from either direction on IH 35.

TQ was right. The pursuit was for the street stocks, but there were not enough interested drivers to make it happen. We ran a 30 lap feature with a lot of cautions and a couple of red flag stops. Most of the drivers were hot and tired after their feature.
