ENNIS, Texas – Texas Motorplex will be one of the first sporting venues in the state to host events following Governor Abbott’s new directives on public gatherings and sporting events.
The Keurig Dr Pepper Lone Star Nationals presented by Driven Automotive Protection, a primarily participant-only event, will be held May 21-23.
The event will be an opportunity for race teams to test, as well as race for one of the largest cash purses ever offered to Alcohol Funny Cars and Dragsters. The Midwest Pro Mods will also be competing and showing off their 200 mph door-slammer speed.
“First we want to assure everyone that we are taking all necessary safety precautions to keep our employees, competitors and fans safe during this event,” said Andy Carter, Texas Motorplex General Manager. “We know racers have been staying at home for over two months and we just want to give them one of the first opportunities to get back on the track. We have set up a program for fans to watch from home from their mobile devices, computer or even smart TV. The Lone Star Nationals will feature a great assortment of race cars and the track will be in great shape.”
Fans will be able to enjoy the three days of racing action for the low price of $15 by purchasing the event pay-per-view livestream on TheFoat.com. The entire event from the first burnout to the last win light will be broadcast with Al Tucci calling the action.
The event will be contested on May 22-23 with qualifying on Friday beginning at 5 p.m.. On Saturday competitors in Top Alcohol Funny Car and Top Alcohol Dragster will battle it out for a winner’s purse of $3,500 in prize money.
Additionally Mid-West Pro Mod drivers will be tearing up the track throughout the weekend. In addition to a record purse, drivers will earn valuable Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series points.
