2005 Season Canceled At Lonestar Speedway

Racing fans in East Texas are losing one of their biggest sources of entertainment. Lonestar Speedway owner Brian Cullins has announced he is canceling the 2005 season. The Lonestar Speedway website is shut down, with only a message from Cullins.

"It is with deep regret and disappointment that I must announce that the 2005 racing season has been canceled," said Cullins. "Lack of support from sponsors and budget cuts from returning sponsors have made it impossible for me to continue. I have lost a tremendous amount of money in a short period of time trying to make this work, but now must move on. I hope Lonestar will be opened again soon, under new ownership, so we can all enjoy again the great racing that we all know takes place there. Thank you to everyone who supported me. Please support the other tracks around so we can all enjoy racing in East Texas."

No word yet on potential buyers or when the track will reopen.

You can credit Dak Prescott for that because the 4th round pick had one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history.  "I am a lot more confident then I thought I ever would be this time last year and beyond not having Romo. That has everything to do with the year Dak had and more importantly the way that Dak is app...More >>
