By Dave Grayson


Saturday, April 9th. It's going to be a great night at Tucson Speedway led by the always exciting Lucas Oil Modified Racing Series, presented by 1 800 Loan Mart, who will be running a 75 lap feature. Also on the schedule, on a full night of racing, will be the Pro Stocks, Late Models, Hornets, Legends & Bandoleros. The gates will open at 5pm with racing getting the green flag at 7pm.

The speedway is offering a two day package for $22 that includes the Friday Lucas Oil Modifieds and Speedway divisions practice session and pit party and the Saturday night racing. The two day package is a website only purchase. Individual tickets for the Friday practice and pit party are $5. Saturday night ticket prices are: adults-$22, seniors & military personnel-$15, kids age 11 to 16-$12 and kids age 10 and under free accompanied by a paid adult.


The SPEARS Southwest Tour Series will kick off its 2016 points season at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday night.
The popular California-based series' top stars - including reigning champion Jacob Gomes - will compete in the "Blackjack 121" feature that will anchor the night's racing slate. The first 100 fans through the gates will receive an autographed Gomes driver profile.

NASCAR Bombers drivers will have two chances to make it to the Winner's Circle thanks to a pair of twin 25s, and NASCAR Super Stocks also will be in action with a 30-lap feature. USLCI Bandoleros Outlaws and Bandits, Thunder Cars and Legends complete the night's eight-race schedule.

This weekend's event is the second of 11 points races for the 2016 Bullring season for the track's eight major classes, and the season continues through championship night on Saturday, Sept. 24. A great entertainment option for families, The Bullring offers $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products, $3 Budweiser beer and frequently features prize giveaways during the season. For more information or to order tickets, log on to The Bullring page at or call 1-800-644-4444.

The spectator gates will open at 5pm followed by qualifying at 5:30pm. Opening ceremonies and main events will start at 7pm.


Saturday, April 9th. The long awaited season opener at the OSS, presented by 1 800 Loan Mart, is finally here and they're starting historic season number 68 on a strong note with racing from their Legend Cars running a 30 lap main, the Open Late Models-50 laps, Street Stocks-30 laps, Mini Stocks & Bandoleros-25 laps each, the always fun Barber Pole race-15 laps and the always exciting Outlaw Figure 8's-20 laps.

The gates will open at 8am followed by a special single car test and tune session from 8:30am to 11:45am. The single car practice will be run in five minute sessions and the driver can return to the track as many times as they want. Entry fee is $50 cash only. The teams must clear the itp aera at 12pm to allow credential officials to begin their jobs. This special test and tune is an excellent shake down run for drivers and crew chiefs to determine what their prior to the racing later in the night. Later in the day, from 1 to 3pm, there will be a practice session, open to all cars and divisions.

At 3:15pm qualifying begins followed by heat races at 6pm, the playing of the "National Anthem" and trophy dashes at 6:55pm. the Bandolero main event at 7:25pm and main events at 7:50pm. There are two basic reason for this very intricate time schedule. First off, OSS officials are expecting approximately 100 cars Saturday night and staying on schedule has become very important. The other reason is the OSS policy of giving their fans a full racing show that doesn't run extremely late. This consideration is especially aimed at fans who have young children that they need to get home to bed.

The OSS is also keeping their ticket prices on a budget friendly basis. General admission tickets, age 13 and up, are only $8. Tickets for seniors and kids, age 6 to 12 are $ 6 while kids five and under along with active duty miltary personnel, with valid ID, will be admitted free.


Saturday, April 9th. The long awaited opening day at All American has finally arrived. Saturday night's racing action will be provided by the speedway's Street Stock, Bomber, F 4, Limited Modified and Pro 4 Modified divisions. The spectator gates will open at 4pm with racing set for 6pm. General admission tickets, age 16 to 59, are $10. Children's tickets age six to 15 and seniors, age 60 plus, are $7. Kids five and under will be admitted free. The speedway also offers a budget friendly family pass that admits two adults and three kids for $35.
