San Antonio, TX – June 10, 2004 – San Antonio Speedway will be hosting a special race on Saturday, June 19, 2004, called the Texas Challenge 125. Late Model drivers from surrounding race tracks and racing series will all compete in this 125-lap race. The winner will be awarded $3,000, and the total posted purse paid to drivers will be over $13,000.


Late Model Stock Cars that meet San Antonio Speedway, Thunder Hill Raceway, Houston Motor Speedway, or Texas Super Racing Series rules are invited to compete. Varying car weights and tires will be allowed to more evenly match the field. The race is a non-sanctioned, non-points event, and it will be divided into two segments to allow for fuel and chassis adjustments. In addition, the local Sportsman and Road Runner classes will compete in separate races that night, along with a special intermission race by the Lone Star Quarter Midgets.


Over 30 Late Models are expected for this event. “This the first race ever presented in cooperation with other tracks and series in this area,” stated Mike Sepich, General Manager at San Antonio Speedway. He added, “We’re expecting a very good car count and we’re looking forward to presenting a very unique show to the fans.”


In January of this year, representatives from San Antonio Speedway, Thunder Hill Raceway and Corpus Christi Motor Speedway formed an organization called the Texas Track Owners and Promoters Association (TTOPA). Commitments were made by this organization to promote closer working relationships among member tracks and to formulate similar rules for comparable classes, along with plans to coordinate track schedules. The Texas Challenge 125 is the first race to be held this year that encompasses the goals of this organization.


San Antonio Speedway is a NASCAR sanctioned half-mile asphalt oval track located at 14901 State Highway 16 South (3.5 miles outside Loop 410). Gates open at 5:00 p.m., and racing action starts at 8:00 p.m. on most Saturday nights from March through October.
