Ft. Worth TX (1/2/2013) by DarinShort.com. Coming off an extremely exciting and successful U.S. National Dirt Track Championship event this past September, Texas Motor Speedway officials are proud to kick off their 2013 dirt racing calendar with the Port-A-Cool® Texas World Dirt Track Championship to be held March 1-2, 2013.
And today at www.darinshort.com/world.html online event registration has now opened.
At this special registration site, there is a link for each race division to preregister their team, purchase advance 2-day pit passes (saves $10), reserve a paved pit space (while supplies last) and sign up for practice night. Each of the racing divisions (SUPR Late Models, Modifieds and Limited Modifieds) can save $40/each on their entry by getting registered between now and February 15th. After that date ‘race week’ pricing will be in effect. Car numbers are assigned on a first-come basis, so if there is a number you want, it would be a good idea to register as soon as possible for the best chance of getting it.
More importantly, for Modified and Limited Modified drivers, TMS will add two provisional starters to their Championship features – but they will be drawn from pre-entered drivers only, so don’t miss out on this second chance! To be considered an “Early Entered Driver” your entry must be received (online or postmarked) by February 15th, 2013. The Modified event pays $3,000 to win and $750 to start; while the Limited Modified event pays $2,000 to win and $400 to start.
There are 120 paved, reserved parking spaces available for this event. Once those spaces have been reserved, all other teams will be parked by TMS officials upon their arrival at the speedway. Purchase them while supplies last on the event website.
Teams can pay using any major credit or debit card and all transactions are secured through PayPal, an eBay company that has soared to over 117 million active accounts. You do not have to be a PayPal member to use this service.
Teams can make multiple purchases on the registration section within the same transaction, which will save time and typing. When you are on the registration page, continue to select ‘add to cart’ items until you are finished and a separate window will contain the items you have selected. You can also edit the invoice before you make your final purchase.
Printable event schedules, rules and more can also be found at the link listed above. If you would prefer to enter by mail, there is an event brochure at the above link that you can print, fill out and mail in your payment. For those not familiar with the TMS layout, there is also a link to a map of the property.
Texas based Port-A-Cool is thrilled to be involved with this event. Their company offers practical and affordable products that all racers and race fans can use to stay cool.
