Short track asphalt racing at Houston Motorsports Park has a new promoter. AFS Racing Promotions and Texas Short Track Auto Racing Series (T-STARS) will take over the promotion of all asphalt events at Houston Motorsports Park from Motorsports Inc. beginning with Speedfest on October 20th, 2018. Race operations will continue under the direction of Amy and Aaron Hogan.
The change to T-STARS is great news for Texas short track asphalt racers because the race schedule will increase to a total of ten race dates at Houston Motorsports Park in 2019. All T-STARS events will include the NASKARTS, Eco-Stocks, Dwarf cars, Allison Legacy cars, Super Stocks, Outlaws, Pro Trucks, and Pro Modifieds. In addition, to a full race schedule, class points will be awarded for each race and class champions to be celebrated at the end of the year banquet.
The Texas Asphalt Racing Series began with two races in 2017 under the promotions of Raymond Delahoussaye and Motorsports Inc. in partnership with Amy and Aaron Hogan. In 2018 a total of three races have been run with the final race, Speedfest, scheduled on October 20th, 2018 to be promoted through AFS Racing Promotions. In addition, AFS Racing Promotions has secured ten dates in 2019 through Houston Motorsports Park owners Dean and David Baker.
“We really appreciate Dean allowing T-STARS to run ten races in 2019 at Houston Motorsports Park in order to continue to bring back short track asphalt racing to the state of Texas. Dean Baker has been very willing to work with AFS Racing promotions and the Hogans to make 2019 the year that asphalt short track racing will have a full race season."
Finally, AFS Racing Promotions wants all the racers to know that the purse checks for The Liberty Bell 200 run on July 7thwill go out this week under the account of AFS Racing Promotions.
“We are sorry for the delay in getting the checks out to the racers. We had to finish the negotiations with moving forward under the new promoters and new series name in order to get the checks to the racers” commented Amy Hogan, the series Director.
Stay tuned for many exciting announcements to come as T-STARS plans for the 2019 race season.
