SHREVEPORT, LA – It’s Cajun party time!
For the third consecutive year, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco heads to the Ark-La-Tex corridor in a combined effort with the series’ growing Ollie’s-sponsored ‘Cajun Region’ for a five-night swing Nov. 8-12.
Ollie’s presents the ‘Cajun Swing’ visiting three different facilities in two states, with $37,000 in winners’ shares up for grabs for STSS Modified competitors.
For the first time in history, the stars of the Northeast-based Short Track Super Series visit Texas on Tuesday, Nov. 8 and Wednesday, Nov. 9. The state-of-the-art Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas hosts the ‘Cajun Swing’ for two nights of action.
While the ‘Cajun Region’ has ventured to the Lone Star State, the Northeastern contingent will make its debut in Texas – the 11th different state visited for the series.
Tuesday night’s (Nov. 8) winner will reward the first time Texas winner with a $4,000 payday at the conclusion of 30 green-flag laps.
The following night – Nov. 9 – the STSS returns to Rocket Raceway Park with $5,000 up for grabs after 35 laps in Night No. 2.
The Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ heads two hours east to a familiar stop on Thursday (Nov. 10): Vivian, La.’s Ark-La-Tex Speedway. Another $4,000 top prize at the end of 35 laps is on the line in Round No. 3 of the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing.’
Rounds No. 4 & 5 of the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ bring the stars of the STSS to Greenwood, La.’s Boothill Speedway.
Boothill Speedway – the site of last year’s opening round – will celebrate its 50th anniversary season with the final two nights of the ‘Cajun Swing.’
Friday (Nov. 11) features a 30-lap, $4,000-to-win main event before Saturday’s grand prize.
Saturday’s (Nov. 12) finale of the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ rewards the winner with a $20,000 paycheck at the end of 50 laps in the ‘Gunslinger’ special.
The entire five-night swing will be broadcast live to a national audience on FloRacing (www.floracing.tv) as part of the $150 annual subscription.
