Right off Interstate 20 lies an East Texas racetrack that has been hosting events since 1984. The Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore is a 3/8th mile high-banked clay track that can hold tons of powerful cars and raving fans. If you are looking for a loud, exciting weekend, this is the place for you!


“The noise is going to echo to the point where the sound doesn’t just resonate through your ears. You feel it in your feet.”

According to Patrick Robb, Promoter, it’s hard to accurately depict what a race is like just through an article or video. It’s something you’ve got to feel! The powerful revving of racecar engines. Dirt and mud flinging into the lower seats by passing cars. The roar of the crowd when their favorite driver crosses the finishing line. Lonestar Speedway literally shakes with excitement!

🏁 Get ready to rev your engines because race season is about to begin with O.R. Motorsports LLC! Join us on April 27th...
