For the first time ever, the STSS presents a ‘Cajun Swing’ with events earmarked for Gene Boyter’s Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La., and Jerry Hobson’s Chatham (La.) Speedway. The winner’s share for three events totals $29,000!
STSS director Brett Deyo partners with the Louisiana-based Southern Super Modified series for this historic swing.
