AUG. 6 LoneStar has it all: Twin Features & 6th Annual $10 Carload night


Kilgore, TX (7/27/16) - Some of the most dramatic nights of racing in LoneStar Speedway (LSS) history are on Twin Features night for Factory Stocks …and race fans should mark their calendars now, as the Twin Features for Factory Stocks returns on Saturday, August 6th!


But that’s not all. It’s also the annual “$10 CARLOAD NIGHT” at LSS, where $10 will get your carload of fans a general admission grandstand ticket for the night’s racing program! There is no parking fee.


And that’s still not all! It’s also our annual “BACK TO SCHOOL BASH”, which means kids ages 12 and under will receive free school supplies upon their entrance into the grandstand area. Plus, kids will be entered into our girls/boys bike giveaways held that night!


The night of fun-for-all-ages and wild on-track racing action will be a full point’s night for the Modifieds (paying $1,000 to win and $100 to start) and Limited Modifieds ($500 to win). Each full-purse feature race for the Factory Stocks will pay $300 to win...and they are both full points feature events. The Front-Wheel Drive 4-Cylinders will also compete with heat and feature races. There is no entry fee in any race division 8/6.


As always, any driver not making a feature race will receive non-qualifier money. Modifieds receive $50, Limited Modifieds receive $30, while any non-qualifiers in the Factory Stocks will receive $20.


The format for the Twin Features for Factory Stocks will be identical to the last time LSS ran twin features:


-Factory Stock drivers will sign in, as normal. Qualifying heat races and B-feature(s) will determine the lineup in the first feature race.

-The second, or ‘twin’, Factory Stock feature will line up according to cars that finished on the lead lap of the first feature – but inverted. Then, the remaining lineup will be filled by cars not finishing on the lead lap, then drivers that didn’t finish the first feature (if they’re able to restart), then B-feature alternate drivers not making the first feature.

-Each Factory Stock feature will be 20 laps, and their feature events will be run early and late in the night’s schedule, so drivers will have time to prep their cars for the second feature.

-Each Factory Stock feature will be the following payback: $300-200-180-160-140-120-100-80-80-60-60-40…to start.

-Both Factory Stock features are full LSS championship point’s events, as was the last time we held them.


If some of you recall, here's one example of the wild racing action from a previous Twin Factory Stock feature night:


First off, there were 21 drivers that finished on the lead lap of the first feature, resulting in a massive 21-car invert in the second feature! Yet, somehow the winner of the first feature, DeWayne Pace, managed to recover from being caught up in an incident at the start of the second feature, then methodically picked off cars here and there to eventually take the lead of the second feature in its closing laps, somehow winning both events!


We’re hoping for another exciting return of the ‘Twins’ on August 6th – so don’t miss it!


With only a handful of events remaining in the LoneStar Championship Points Series (that pays out a minimum of $10,000 to top finishing LSS points drivers), there could be a real shakeup in points after this event. Rules for all divisions are on the track website. All pit passes are $30. Click www.LoneStarSpeedway.com for additional details.


Again, it’s carload night, so you will pay the attendant on the entrance to the parking lot $10 upon your arrival. There are no other costs associated with getting into the parking or grandstand area. If you choose to sit in the reserved section, as always, it is an add-on of $5 per person.


Reminder that ‘summer hours’ are in effect: racing begins at 8pm. We have found that the summer hours program is working really well, as it helps keep the track in optimum condition on hot summer days.


A complete event flyer for August 6th has been posted under the ‘resources’ section of the track website.


Here are some quick facts for the Saturday August 6th Twin Features/Carload Night/Back to School Bash:


-Pits open at 5pm, Grandstands open at 6pm, Draw Cut off at 7pm, Drivers Meeting at 7:15pm, with Hot Laps between 7:30-8pm (depending on heat and cloud cover),, and racing to follow immediately.

-General Admission just $10 per entire carload. Each person in your vehicle will be issued a GA ticket that they will each present at the ticket gate for free admittance. There is no parking fee.

-Upgrade any ticket to the Reserved Section for $5 per person

-All Pit Passes $30

-No outside food/drink coolers are allowed inside; a full selection of economically priced food concessions, including beer, are available

-Click www.LoneStarSpeedway.com to check out the event flyer, track details, rules, purse breakdown; etc.


Don’t miss the wild and unpredictable action at LoneStar Speedway on Saturday, August 6th, when Twin Features for Factory Stocks return…along with a full night of racing in the Modifieds, Four Cylinders and Limited Modifieds!
