Southern Thaw USRA Stock Car Speedweek Dates Revealed

Dirt track racing in the Lone Star State will kick off with a bang next year with the RaceOnTexas Southern Thaw USRA Stock Car Speedweek—a three-track trek through North Texas and Southern Oklahoma.

Piles of cash will be doled out to the drivers with more than $80,000 in purses plus a stout points fund to get USRA Stock Car racers a head-start on next season’s racing budgets.

The Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, will host the mini-series opener on March 14-16, and after a day of rest on Sunday to repent for their harrowing slide-jobs, the USRA Stock Cars head to the Hunt County Raceway in Greenville, Texas, on March 18-20.

Both race tracks will host an open practice on Thursday night, followed by a $1,000-to-win, $100-to-start contest on Friday leading up to Saturday’s $2,000-to-win, $200-to-start main event. Supports classes will be announced at a later time.

Action resumes on March 21 when the USRA Stock Cars will take the stage for the inaugural Stand On It Classic — an event commemorating John and Susan Stand at the state-of-the-art Arrowhead Speedway in Colcord, Okla.

Both March 22-23 will feature a main event that shells out $5,000 to the winner and no less than $500 to each driver that takes the green flag in the feature.

AmeriFlex USRA B-Mods will also compete both nights with USRA Tuners racing Friday and Pure Stocks on Saturday’s card. The event has a rain date of March 28-30.
