4:30PM SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 28th UPDATE:

LoneStar Armadillo Nationals Finale Pushed Back to Nov. 2

Kilgore, TX (9/28/13) by DarinShort.com. A rapidly changing forecast coupled with the reality that it is now raining, and much more is on the
way tonight and tomorrow, has left LoneStar Speedway officials no other choice than to postpone the finale of the Armadillo Nationals to
Saturday, November 2nd.

Complete details and added attractions to the event will be posted in the days to come.

Note to LoneStar Campground campers: you are welcome to come back on the November 2nd event and camp in your spot free of charge.

It’s unfortunate that Mother Nature made an appearance – that wasn’t supposed to arrive until after the races tonight were over – but she
did, and there’s nothing any of us can do about that.

But with two great nights of racing in the books at the Armadillo Nationals, we can all look forward to a fantastic finale on Saturday,
November 2nd.
Event details will be posted at the event website: www.darinshort.com/arm.html and at the track website: www.LoneStarSpeedway.com in
the days to come.

Also be watching for an exciting announcement regarding the November 30th LoneStar Turkey Nationals – our racing ‘plate’ is going to be
full for that season finale!

FIRST WAVE of $62K Armadillo ENTRIES, Early Reg'n Ends TONIGHT

KILGORE, TX (9/24/13) by DarinShort.com. The following drivers have taken the time to get registered early for this weekends (Sept. 26-28) $62,000
Armadillo Nationals at LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, TX.

We very much appreciate these drivers taking the time to get their teams registered early, as it helps the track prepare for their arrival, as the scoring
team can get their paperwork completed and transponders loaded - which will save everyone time on race night.

TODAY is the FINAL DAY to enter your team online at the registration website.

Visit www.darinshort.com/arm.html and in a few clicks you can be all set up for this weekend's huge event that pays $10,000 to win the DAY Motorsports
Modifieds, and $3,000 to win the Smiley's Racing Products Limited Modifieds. A very reasonable early entry fee of $80 for the Modifieds and $55 for the
Limited Modifieds is set. Early entered drivers are also guaranteed non-qualifier if they happen to not make the championship feature. Pre-entered
Modified drivers that don't make the championship feature will receive $150, while pre-entered Limited Modified drivers will receive $125 in non-qualifier
money.

After today, "at track" registration prices go up $25 per division...so take advantage of the online promotion while it lasts.

In the $2,000 to win Blaine's Motor Supply Factory Stock division, there is no registration fee for this event. Factory Stock teams will enter upon their
arrival at the track on race day.

Reminder, you are not penalized if you do not race all three days of the Armadillo Nationals. Your high point night from Thursday OR Friday will be used to
line up your car on Saturday night's championship. The top 4 finishers in each qualifying feature from Thursday and Friday (in all 3 divisions) will be
locked into their respective Championship event. The next 6 starts will lock-in from top overall points getters in their respective division. The balance of the
field, 10 cars in each division, will come from the B-features.

You are highly encouraged to race both qualifying nights so you can improve your points total. You are not penalized for racing both qualifying nights, and
there is no added entry fee; etc., for racing both qualifying nights.

Drivers that do not qualify and show up to race Saturday only, must pay their division's entry fee, pit pass and transponder fee. They will have a "0" points
total, so they will tag the field of the lowest feature race. If that driver makes their way into the Championship feature, they will race for the advertised
purse. There is no non-qualifier money paid to one day drivers.

Here's the first wave of early entries, as of 9/24, 8 AM. If your driver info is listed incorrectly, or missing, please email Darin at dssm93@msn.com with the
information that needs to be corrected.
