"BBQ, BREW...and a PRACTICE NIGHT TOO!" LONESTAR OCT. 21 (Night Before the Ltd Mod Nationals)


Kilgore TX (9/7/16) - Recently, LoneStar Speedway (LSS) announced the addition of the $3,000 to win and $300 to start LoneStar Limited Modified Nationals, slated for Saturday October 22 (all LoneStar points divisions will be racing that night). And today, the event has been expanded to include a Friday night, October 21st component, entitled "BBQ, Brew & a Practice Night Too!"


Simply put, we want everyone to have a fun kick-off to race weekend, by offering Open Practice (for any and all dirt racing divisions) from roughly 7-10pm, with the BBQ & Brew component taking place from 10-11pm. Your $15 pit pass (all ages) includes all components. The pit area opens at 6pm on Friday October 21st. The grandstands will have free admission, however all persons must purchase a pit pass to go in the pits any time between 6pm-11pm. There will be soft drinks available for those opting-out of the 'brew'...or for those in attendance under 21 years of age.


We hope you can take in this fun, low-stress night at the track, before things heat way up the following night.


Speaking of race night (Saturday, October 22nd), it will be a complete LSS points event, with $1,200 going to the high-powered Modified division winner, $500 to win in the Factory Stocks; plus the FWD 4-Cylinders will be racing for added purse money. The Modifieds and Factory Stocks will receive full points, while all LSS registered Limited Modified teams will receive 50 'show up' points for competing in the event. New drivers will not be required to register their car to compete in this event.


The LoneStar Limited Modified Nationals feature will be 30 laps in distance, with payback as follows: $3,000 - 1,200 - 800 - 600 - 500 (5th) - 450 - 400 - 380 - 360 - 340 (10th) - 320 - 300...to start (20th). All Limited Modified non-qualifiers or non-starters will receive the standard amount of $30. There is NO entry fee for the Limited Modified teams, or any others.


The posted LSS rules for all divisions will be enforced and we will not be making exceptions...so make sure you've read them on the track website prior to traveling to LSS. No mufflers are required in any LSS division...so race fans can hear the cars how they are intended to be heard!


Tickets to this big night of racing are just $15 for ages 12-64, while Kids tickets are $5 for ages 6-11. Seniors/Military will be admitted for $12. LoneStar Speedway is located near Kilgore TX, right off of I-20 and Exit 583 (then 1/2 mile north and 1 mile east). All pit passes for all ages will be $35.


In the meantime, we've got a great lineup of events leading up until the LoneStar Limited Modified Nationals:
