Extreme Weather Postpones Texas Dirt Track Opener


FORT WORTH, Texas  – The season-opening event at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track, which is being promoted by X.CELERATED this year, has been postponed until further notice due to the state of emergency caused by extreme cold weather throughout Texas.

The Revival, originally scheduled Feb. 18-20 for Open (Outlaw) Modifieds, Limited Modifieds, Factory Stocks, Hornets and Eco Mods, will be rescheduled at a later date.

“The safety of our racers, fans and track workers is always our primary concern so we’ve made the decision to postpone The Revival to a later date when temperatures are warmer and things are more back to normal at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track,” said X.CELERATED CEO Barry Braun. “We’re thrilled to be partnered with Texas Motor Speedway for a full season of X.CELERATED dirt racing but we have to do it correctly from the start so we will regroup to determine the best and earliest dates to do so.”

Texas Motor Speedway reached a multi-year strategic business agreement in late January with the Silver Bay, Minn.-based motorsports promotor for 18 nights of sprint car, super late model and modified racing on the half-mile dirt track. The schedule includes a NASCAR All-Star Race sprint car companion event in June, a Monday night summer racing series, and a $50,000-to-win super late model event in September.
