TSRS to finish 2008 with back-to-back races starting with “DW 75”


Austin, TX (September 15, 2008) - The Texas Super Racing Series (TSRS) will finish its high-charged 2008 racing season on back-to-back weekends starting this Saturday night with the “DW 75” at Thunderhill Raceway (THR), a 3/8th-mile asphalt oval in Kyle , TX .


“We’re looking forward to some great racing action both this weekend and next weekend – for the Sept. 27th Texas Stock Car Spectacular,” stated TSRS Owner/Founder Mary Ann Naumann. “This will be two great weekends for racing, with the finish of the season and the cooler weather approaching. We hope everyone turns out to give our drivers the great support they deserve the next two weekends.”


Naumann added, “We’re calling this week’s race the ‘DW 75’ for a reason but we’re not going to reveal why until Friday morning. Race fans are welcome to take a guess what it stands for.” Some notes about TSRS going into the DW 75:


This will be the first race for the series since Aug. 30, when La Vernia’s Cody Smith won the “Back to School 75” at THR.


Smith was the sixth different TSRS race winner in 2008 – that’s the most since 2006. There were eight (8) different winners in the series in 2004 and 2005.


Chris Schild (#7) of Leander is tied with Tommy Gural for the all-time number of wins (8) by one driver in the series. Schild is expected to race in both upcoming races. Schild also holds the all-time series record for being fast qualifier (13 times). Schild is the 2005 series champion; Gural won the TSRS title the next season (2006).


Heath Stewart ( Del Valle , TX ) holds a 114-point lead over Robert Barker ( Boerne , TX ) going into the final two series races. Stewart drives for former TSRS series champion Bobby Joe New (2007).

The chase for the ’08 Rookie of the Year title remains close – Dillon Spreen (Boerne) and Jake Kruger ( Bastrop , TX ) are separated by just 31 points. Kruger wasn’t able to start the first race of the season and has one less start than Spreen.


Naumann added, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who suffered losses during Hurricane Ike last weekend. We pray that everyone involved will get back on their feet and get back to their normal lives in a timely manner.”
