From Darin Short out at Lone Star Speedway
July 28 (Thursday)
This coming October 13th through the 15th race fans and race teams will be treated to one of the largest Sprint Car racing events in Texas State history with the running of the $100,000 LoneStar Sprint Nationals; and event registration, rules, format, event flyer and much, much more are available for viewing.

And as impressive as the purse for this event is: grandstand tickets, pit passes and entry fees will be at very affordable prices. General admission Adult grandstand tickets are just $15 on Thursday and Friday night; and just $20 on Saturday's finale! Plus fans can take advantage of a 3-day general admission ticket of just $40 upon their arrival at the track on Thursday October 13th. No advance tickets will be sold.
Teams will want to enter as quickly as possible, as there are approximately 56 pit spaces in the primary pit area that accommodate teams with lights, PA system and close access to the track/grandstands…and the first 56 entries will receive reserved pit parking within those spaces, whether they are a 360 team or a 305 team.
