TEXAS SPRINT SERIES INVADES 82 SPEEDWAY *THIS SATURDAY JUNE 20th at 8PM* PLUS all '82 DIVISIONS RACING!

IT'S RACE WEEK at 82 Speedway for the Texas Sprint Series? (TSS), as teams will invade 'The Land of the XL' for the first time in two years on SATURDAY, JUNE 20th at 8pm! Joining the TSS will be a complete program for the USRA Modifieds, Factory Stocks, Limited Modifieds and Tuners; plus the EcoStocks, EcoMods and Texas Stocks. The TSS will be 3rd in running order all night long.

Online pre-entry for TSS teams is now open (and mandatory) to eligible drivers at www.raceTSS.com - and continues through Wednesday night of race week.

I like to call 82 Speedway the ‘Land of the XL’ because it features a super-wide multi-groove progressive banking surface that is .26 miles in distance on the pole and exactly a 3/10 mile on the top groove of the speedway. There is even a run-off area around the entire racing surface which helps assist drivers that might develop a problem during a race.

Pit Gates open at 5pm on race day (82 Speedway teams - please arrive early to get registered if you haven’t already at www.82speedway.com), hot laps are slated at 8pm (the sun is very high and hot at 7:30, so we are shifting it to 8) with racing immediately after. Grandstands open at 6:30pm.

TSS drivers meeting and draw cutoff will be at 7pm. 82 Speedway divisions Draw Cutoff/Pit Meeting at 7:15pm (all cars will draw for heat race starting position, all heats earn finishing and passing points, features are straight up), Track Packing will be around 7:55pm & then Hot Laps with Racing to follow immediately.

Grandstand admission Adults $16 (ages 12-64), Kids ages 6-11 $5, Seniors/Military $13. Any outside food/drink cooler brought into main grandstand area (size of 12-pack, no glass containers) are $5 (same as 2019). Pits are $35. Pit access for ages 5 and under is $15. Anyone under the age of 18 entering the pit area must complete an annual minor's release form prior to entering.

If you’ve yet to visit 82 Speedway, it is much closer to DFW than a lot of people think and is NOT the old Paris Speedway southeast of Paris. As a point of reference, including a quick fuel stop, you can get from the intersection of Bass Pro Shops/I-30/Bush in Garland to 82 Speedway in 80 minutes. 82 Speedway is about 15 minutes WEST of PARIS, located on Hwy 82 on the east edge of Petty, TX. The address is 16369 US Hwy 82 Petty, TX 75470.

Here's the purse structure for Saturday June 13th at 82 Speedway. Working RaceCeivers and transponders are required in ALL racing divisions:
