For the benefit of the current members of the South Texas Speedway Racing Association and those who may be thinking about joining or have questions about it, here is a review of the organization, itís purpose, benefits and costs.
South Texas Speedway formed the STSRA (South Texas Speedway Racing Association) in order to provide maximum benefits for itís drivers and members as well as provide a solid support base for track sponsors. By enlisting the cooperation of the drivers, crew members, owners and families to support the corporate sponsors of our facility, we have been able to guarantee one of the largest season points funds of any track our size in the U.S., over $18,000.
We are very pleased with the response to the association, to date we have over 160 members who have joined. The presenting sponsors, PENNZOIL, Hi-Lo/OíReilly, and Circle K/CITGO are enthusiastic with the response from association members to date. If the support given these sponsors through our receipt-for-discounts and receipts-for-points fund programs continues, rest assured that the season point fund purse will continue to increase in the years to come.

We wish to thank each member of the association for becoming part of
this unique new sponsor/driver support program. We realize that it is something
never before attempted in this industry...and we appreciate your help in
making it work. We also want to remind you that the sponsors involved
also weighed some risks in putting up the monies for the season points
fund. These sponsors put their faith in our track and our drivers, fans,
and team members, the sponsors now know that their faith was well-placed.
Thank you all for your participation, it will go a long way in making racing
at South Texas Speedway even better in the future.
