Drivers – please make sure to read the updated series rules, including the online event pre-registration process. This season all drivers must register through the online link on the Drivers/Rules link at www.raceTSS.com – which is a simple process that literally will take seconds to complete. You just enter your driver name, car number, phone number, then click the ‘pre-enter’ button and you’re all set. Pre-entry closes 3 days prior to each event.

Additional event details will be posted on race week – such as drivers meeting times, hot laps, ticket prices; etc.

ICYMI, the TSS launched their new series website last week, here’s the details if you’d like to read on:

The Online Home for the Texas Sprint Series Launches Today, at raceTSS.com!

Garland, TX (02/06/20) by DarinShort.com. Officials of the DFW-based Texas Sprint Series (TSS) are pleased to announce the launch of www.raceTSS.com – their new online home. For those unfamiliar, the TSS is a RaceSaver IMCA Sprint Car group that competes across eight tracks in roughly a 150-mile radius of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex area.

At the new site, fans, race teams, tracks and marketing partners can keep updated on the latest Series news, pictures, video, schedule, rules, online registration & merchandise store…and much more.

Speaking of online store, TSS would like to thank Norman Martin and the crew at Action Sportswear for creating such a great looking t-shirt design for 2020 (which are for sale at raceTSS.com).

TSS Series Promoter Danny Merrell comments: “The 2020 season for the Texas Sprint Series is going to be fantastic. We’ve got a great officiating crew assembled, there are already 38 registered teams and now all we need is some decent race night weather in order to provide racing fans throughout this region with exciting and family entertainment-driven winged sprint car racing.”

Merrell continues: “During the off-season we developed a symbiotic relationship with the 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits (SCB) series. That alliance will help grow our online media presence – and it already is today with the launch of raceTSS.com. I’d like to thank SCB co-founder Darin Short for spearheading coordination with the tracks across this region and getting both the TSS and SCB schedules interlocked, resulting in not even one overlapping event scheduled for the 2020 season. Now when race fans want to see a quality winged sprint car series in the region, they’ll no longer have to pick and choose which series event to go to. This also greatly benefits those alliance tracks, as it will boost fan attendance organically. Between the scheduling work, bolstered marketing presence and strong officiating staff, we’re really hitting on all eight cylinders going into the new season.”

Will Eggimann, Principal with the SCB comments: “There are so many positive scenarios with this alliance that make sense for teams, fans, marketing partners and promoters – and that’s been our ultimate goal all along with the SCB.”

In other Series news, there are no significant rules or procedure changes being planned. The season kick-off meeting was this past Saturday at Smiley’s Racing Products and teams are now prepping for the season opener at Kennedale Speedway Park on Saturday, March 7th.

THANK YOU to all the teams, fans, marketing partners, series workers, track workers, series tracks and vendors for their support of the Texas Sprint Series throughout the years, and we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge our marketing partners at this point going into the 2020 season:

All Import Auto Parts, SCP Polymers, Smiley's Racing Products - The Official Page, Velocita-USA, Sunoco Race Fuels, Henderson Properties - Ron Henderson, Precision Reprographics, Allard Racing Engines, Superior Steering Wheels, Woods Transmission & General Auto Repair and ABC Pick & Pull – and if you’d like to get your business in front of our loyal fans, contact us today.
