It was their fourth TPS appearance of the 2004 season at the 3/8 mile THR track. The Texas Pro Sedans 20 Lap Feature Race winner was five time TPS Champion Bill LaBarge of Bryan, Texas. The Qualifying Heat Races were won by LaBarge and Donnie Moore of Hutto. LaBarge drove his BMW. Moore was at the wheel of the George Merrell VW Scirocco. The 20 lap Feature Race was highlighted by three Ford Mustangs following LaBarge’s BMW closely for most of the race. Tony Johnson of Marion drafted LaBarge for the entire race and was the race runner-up. Lalo Leal of Corpus Christi held down a tight third place for 15 laps until an engine problem forced him to the pits. Bryce Dishman took third from Leal only to pit on lap 18 due to an engine problem. Finishing on the lead lap was the TPS Point leader Donnie Moore and in his best TPS finish yet, Ariel Arredondo of Corpus Christi in his Ford Probe. With the win, Bill LaBarge reduced Donnie Moore’s TPS Championship Points lead to only an 18 point margin.
