Race operations will continue under the direction of Amy and Aaron Hogan.

In 2018 a total of three races have been run with the final race, Speedfest, scheduled on October 20th, 2018 to be promoted through AFS Racing Promotions. In addition, AFS Racing Promotions has secured ten dates in 2019 through Houston Motorsports Park owners Dean and David Baker. “We really appreciate Dean allowing T-STARS to run ten races in 2019 at Houston Motorsports Park in order to continue to bring back short track asphalt racing to the state of Texas. Dean Baker has been very willing to work with AFS Racing promotions and the Hogans to make 2019 the year that asphalt short track racing will have a full race season”.

Finally, AFS Racing Promotions wants all the racers to know that the purse checks for The Liberty Bell 200 run on July 7th will go out this week under the account of AFS Racing Promotions. “We are sorry for the delay in getting the checks out to the racers.
