TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY PORTACOOLâ„¢ U.S. NATIONAL DIRT TRACK CHAMPIONSHIP REGISTRATION OPENS!
Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) officials are pleased to announce the registration website is now open for the PORTACOOL™ U.S. National Dirt Track Championship at The Dirt Track at TMS.
The event will be held September 11-12, 2015 featuring the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series, Limited Modifieds; and for the first time in TMS history, Factory Stocks, competing for over $70,000 in cash, plus prizes (details below).
Please click here to get your race team registered for the event, view event brochure, purchase reserved paved pit space (while supplies last), make practice night payment and purchase advance 2-day pit passes (saves $10).
Since the Factory Stocks are new to TMS, full Factory Stock rules are posted at the upper left of each page of the event website and can be downloaded and they are print formatted as well.
Limited Modified and Factory Stock teams can save $40/each on their entry by getting registered between now and August 28th. After that date, ‘race week’ pricing will be in effect.
Car numbers are assigned on a first-come basis, so if there is a number you want, it is a good idea to register as soon as possible for the best chance of getting it.
TMS will add two provisional starters to the Limited Modified and Factory Stock championship feature – but those names will be drawn from pre-entered drivers only, so don't miss out on this second chance! To be considered an “Early Entered Driver” your entry must be received (online or postmarked) by August 28th, 2015. The Limited Modified and Factory Stock championship events pay $2,000 to win and $400 to start (24th)!
There are 120 paved, reserved parking spaces available for this event. Once those spaces have been purchased, all other teams will be parked by TMS officials upon their arrival at the speedway. Purchase pit parking while supplies last at the event website.
With the new addition of the Factory Stocks, reserved pit spaces are expected to sell out much quicker than normal. So if you need one, you should act now before supplies are exhausted.
Teams can pay using any major credit or debit card and all transactions are secured through PayPal, a company that has soared to over 165 million active accounts. You do not have to be a PayPal member to use this free service.
Printable event schedules, rules and more can also be found at the link listed above. If you would prefer to enter by mail, there is an event brochure at the above link that you can print, fill out and mail in your payment. For those not familiar with the TMS layout, there is also a link to a map of the property.
Also available for a limited time only, the beautiful and convenient Marriott Hotel & Golf Club at Champions Circle (across from entrance of TMS) has special discounted rates available to racers and fans for this event! The link is posted towards the upper left of each page of the event website.
