Note that we are fully aware of the weather forecasting models that are currently showing there may

And, no different than a few other times in the past at TMS, if when we get to actual race time, and it
happens to be raining too much to race, we will adjust our schedule accordingly.

But for now, everything is 100% scheduled, as advertised. We'll keep an eye on the forecast and will
keep all of the fans and teams informed with the latest in event news, if, and when, the occasion

PORTACOOL™ Texas World Dirt Track Championship Registration Open, New Race Dates!

Ft. Worth TX (3/3/2015) by DarinShort.com. Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) officials are proud to kick
off their 2015 dirt racing calendar with the PORTACOOL™ Texas World Dirt Track Championship at
the TMS Dirt Track.

The event is scheduled for May 15th and 16th featuring the SUPR Late Models, Modifieds and
Limited Modifieds – competing for $75,000 in cash, plus prizes. With the unpredictable early spring
weather, track officials have opted for this new date, as compared to the traditional March dates.

And today, at www.darinshort.com/world.html online event registration has 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 May 1st. 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 is a good idea to register as soon as possible for the best chance of getting it.

TMS will add two provisional starters to the Modified and Limited Modified Championship features –
but those names 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 May 1st. 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.

The P&W Sales SUPR Late Models will have a complete racing program of heats and features on
Saturday, May 16th; paying $3,500 to win and $400 to start. A fantastic field of SUPR Late Models
are expected, including drivers such as Jonathan Mitchell, Robert Litton, Patrik Daniel, Tyler Erb,
Richard Duke Jr, Robbie Stuart, Ronny Adams, Chad Comer, Robbie Starnes and Zach McMillan.

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 pit parking while supplies last at 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 162 million active accounts, and processes 11.5 million
online transactions per day. You do not have to be a PayPal member to use this free 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

Ft. Worth, TX (5/15/15) by DarinShort.com. We all know there is weather system moving through the area that is currently forecast to ramp up Saturday
during the nighttime hours. Weather forecasting is not an exact science, so it can't really be nailed down to an exact time at this point.

That being said, TMS officials are proactively addressing the situation beforehand, as follows, regarding the PORTACOOL™ Texas World Dirt Track
Championship at TMS's Dirt Track:

1. It appears that we will have good racing conditions for tonight's opener. Today's precip is appearing to stay contained to east of the I-35 corridor; and
the NWS is currently showing a 20% chance of precip. Opening ceremonies are at 6:45pm.

2. Tonight's qualifying schedule will remain as advertised, with heats and features in the Limited Modifieds and Modifieds. The SUPR Late Models will have
their scheduled practice sessions.

3. Saturday night's Championship event is still as advertised, with 6:45pm opening ceremonies.

4. In the event that the weather system moves in early on Saturday night and causes postponement, it will be reset for Sunday May 17th at Noon.

5. However, IF Saturday's program succumbs to precip, AND the Sunday event is not able to resume by Noon (due to weather), THEN the following will

5A) The balance of the racing program would then be cancelled.

5B) The Friday night racing event (tonight) will pay 1/2 the advertised May 16th Championship event purse for the Modifieds and Limited Modifieds. Again,
this is IF and ONLY IF the Saturday/Sunday portion of this weekend gets cancelled.

5C) Any Modified that doesn't make the feature race Friday night would then receive $75 in NQ money, while any Limited Modified not making the Friday
night feature would receive $50 NQ money.

5D) That would mean the Friday night (tonight) feature race for the Modifieds would pay $1,500 to win and $375 to start; and the Limited Modified feature
would pay $1,000 to win and $200 to start. The complete event payback is posted on the brochure link at www.darinshort.com/world.html (you will just take
1/2 of each positions posted purse).

5E) If you've already bought a Saturday pit pass, that will be refunded to you (again, if, and only if, Saturday/Sunday weather forces cancellation).

5F) Since the SUPR Late Models only are scheduled to race on Saturday (or Sunday if forced by weather), if the event is cancelled, they will receive their
entry fee and Saturday night pit pass purchase back in the form of a refund.


The PORTACOOL™ Texas World Dirt Track Championship at TMS's Dirt Track IS RACING, TONIGHT, MAY 15th; so get your race car loaded up and get
headed to the track if you're not there already.
