August 19, 2021 - DFW Crate Late Model Series Rained Out at RPM Speedway
It is with disappointment that we have to make this announcement. RPM Speedway is rained out for Friday, August 20. There has been a substantial amount of rain fall in the last two days in that area. We are still racing at Souther Oklahoma Speedway (Ardmore, OK) on Saturday, August 21.

We hope to see everyone there.

August 7, 2021 - DFW Crate Late Model Series Tech Bulletin
Effective July 1, 2022 the Engine Rules Found by Clicking Here will be the new engine rules for DFW Crate Late Model Series.

This does not mean that we are telling anyone that they are not allowed to run with us until then. The reason for these changes is to keep everyone on the same page and to keep any loopholes out of question with seals and specs so no questions or controversy will arise in tech and we can make sure the seals are certified. As well, it gives everyone 11 months to be able to freshen their motors and for anyone looking to come into the series to have plenty of time to make sure they have the proper seals and specs. We feel this is the best move for our series.

We will be allowing siping on the REAR TIRES ONLY for the remainder of the year……..Also Friday August 20th RPM Speedway, $1300 to win, $200 to start. $50 front row qualifiers and much much more!!!!!!

Saturday August 21st Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Ok. $1200 to win, $200 to start.

May 21, 2021 - Texas Local DFW Series Canceled for May 22
In light of a 70% chance of rain and storms Saturday night in and around Abilene, Rob, Libby, and myself have made the difficult decision to postpone Late Model Race scheduled for this Saturday.

If at all possible all other classes will run as scheduled.

I appreciate everyones commitment to the series but an early call is better than a shortened night and muddy mess. I'll see you at the next race.

Please pass the word.
