The best place to see a Sprint Car race is Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas. A good place to stay is Comfort Inn Suites. Bruce, who’s a former Flag Man for USAC said that the Lonestar Nationals is the best Sprint Show he’d ever seen. Thursday night they flipped 31 cars, Friday night they flipped 4, and on Saturday night they flipped 11! So, if it’s action you want… it’s a great place to be! They had to limit 305 Sprints to 60 and in 4 days they had 60 of them registered. 16 states and 2 cars from Canada were represented. When it was a ½ mile, I thought it had better sight lines and lighting than even The Dirt Track at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. They reduced it to 3/8ths in order to accommodate the local weekly racing show. Now it’s still just as beautiful. The weather is fantastic in Texas this time of year, and it’s a great chance for racers to have a final weekend and a really great time.
Shane Stewart won it! He seems to have everybody covered. Daryn Pittman was Mr. Smooth the whole weekend driving Terry McCarl’s car. And if you haven’t seen Jason Johnson run, you’re missing out. He may not have the fastest car, but he leaves everything he’s got on the track. He can make a mistake and turn a mistake into FAST. When I started raving to Goose about it, he said, ‘Now you know what we’ve been running with in the Midwest ASCS Series.’ Goose’s boy Bryan in the 6g car ran 3rd in points. Mark your calendar, and make your plans to come down and see us in Texas next year when they run this fine show.
Shows to go to across the USA! If you know of a good show, let us know and we’ll list it on our Show Time Page. We’ve got 42 shows listed. One show I love is the PRI Show. The people there treated me just as good when I had 100 people on the site as they treat me now that I’ve got a million. Most of the vendors that I talked to at the PRI show say they have less traffic than when they had the show in Indianapolis but they happen to do more business.
Everybody that’s buying new equipment: sell your old stuff on our free racing classifieds page. We have a coast-to-coast market! We have good photos and it’s easy to use. If you have any kind of racing business, you’re welcome to go ahead and stick an ad on our racing classifieds page for your business….we’d be glad to have it.
I always hate when it comes to this time of year. My nose starts running at the race track and I think ‘this is not a football game’.
The racing’s going to be over for the season… you have to make those last shows.
