All Stars Will Visit Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Louisiana June 4-14

With a pair of events already scheduled at Park Jefferson International Speedway on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30, Series competitors will keep their atlases open and keyed in on states west of the Mighty Mississippi, and for the first time during Tony Stewart’s tenure as owner of the traveling All Stars, the Series will invade areas within Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas and Louisiana. The four-state tour will take shape over a 11-day span beginning with a three-pack in the Sooner State and a lone visit to Kansas on Thursday through Sunday, June 4-7.

Dubbed ‘Thunder Through The Plains,’ the All Star trek through Oklahoma and Kansas will ignite with appearances at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Thursday, June 4,  Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Oklahoma, on Friday, June 5, and the recently reopened Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma, on Saturday, June 6. Hopping north into the Sunflower State, the All Stars will conclude ‘Thunder Through The Plains’ with a visit to 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, on Sunday, June 7. 

It has been since 2003 when the All Star Circuit of Champions last visited Oklahoma. The now abandoned Tulsa Speedway hosted America’s Series on August 23, 2003, with Sans Souci, New South Wales, Australia’s Brooke Tatnell earning the main event victory. More recently, the ‘Steel City Outlaw’ Tim Shaffer was the last All Star to claim a victory in Kansas, capturing a win at the Belleville High Banks on August 5, 2010. 

After a three-day break, All Star action will resume with a three-state, four-race weekend through Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana on Thursday through Sunday, June 11-14. Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Oklahoma, planted just north of the Texas border, will be the first to host All Star Circuit of Champions competition during the second, four-race sweep on Thursday, June 11. Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas, is next on the list with a visit set for Friday, June 12, followed by one-night stands at Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, on Saturday, June 13, and Chatham Speedway in Chatham, Louisiana, on Sunday, June 14. 

Adding a few extra pages to All Star Circuit of Champions history books, the appearances at Lawton Speedway, Red Dirt Raceway, Outlaw Motor Speedway, Southern Oklahoma Speedway, Monarch Motor Speedway, Lonestar Speedway, and Chatham Speedway will all be a first-ever for the Tony Stewart-owned organization. Although Louisiana is a new territory for the Series, never visiting the Pelican State during its storied history, the All Stars are certainly no stranger to the Lone Star State, first visiting El Paso in 2004 after sanctioning a two-day stop at Devil’s Bowl in 1990.

With added dates comes schedule changes, and in addition to the already postponed New York swing that was scheduled for June 5-7, Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires set for June 12-20 has also been postponed and tentatively rescheduled for July 3-12. Although an exact schedule has yet to be finalized, events at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway on July 3-4, as well as at Sharon Speedway on July 11-12, have already been established. All Star and remaining track officials are working together to determine a final layout for the events in between.

Fans seeking additional information pertaining to the Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, and Louisiana road trip, such as gates times, ticket prices, and regulations pertaining to social distancing, should contact each of the respective tracks. The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue to abide by the social distancing recommendations and practices upheld by each state on the schedule. 

Tickets for the events at Lawton Speedway, Red Dirt Raceway, Outlaw Motor Speedway, 81 Speedway, and Southern Oklahoma Speedway can be purchased through MyRacePass at https://market.myracepass.com/tickets/

Dacus Ready for Another Shot at Thunderhill

Dane Dacus is as selective as it comes when mapping out a race schedule. There’s no grand plan — other than making sure he’s not racing every single weekend of the summer. The veteran driver from Lakeland, Tenn., said that as he’s grown older, his business and family are top priorities, so he typically sits down with Randy Korte — the former driver turned consultant from Highland, Ill., who does the upkeep on Dacus’s car — and plots a plan.
