One of the best, if not THE BEST, Limited Modified (Southern Sport Mod) races you can race in or watch. These cars have put on fantastic races every year at the Tootsie Smith Memorial!

More details coming soon...

***START MONEY INCREASED FOR TSM VIII***

The 2015 Tootsie Smith Memorial Limited Modified A-main has a purse boost for the back half of the field. It now pays $300 -- up $100 from 2014 -- just to START the $3000-to-win main event! Keep in mind this is STILL A ONE-DAY SHOW with NO entry fee of course.

Thought was given to making this a 2-day event this year. Getting all the cars a good shot at qualifying in last year, took some time but a one-day show like this, seems to be very popular with this class. So, in the interest of time this year, the only support classes will be Factory Stocks and ProMods.

What do race promoters do on a night when their track is off? Sometimes they race!

Ark-La-Tex Speedway promoter Gene Boyter finished a Factory Stock just in time to race it at The King of The Hill -- Boothill Speedway's $10,000-to-win race -- and managed a 3rd place finish in the non-qualifier's feature. He returned there on August 8th and ran 2nd in the Factory Stock feature that night. Boyter is the defending Louisiana State Dirt Track Champion for that class and the 43rd edition of that event will take place at Boothill on October 3rd. Gene has never competed at his own track that he promotes though because of obvious and good reasons!

East Texas racers Jason Ingalls and Travis Evans are the co-promoters of Louisiana's oldest active dirt track -- Boothill Speedway. Neither compete there anymore for the same reasons. For Jason, Boothill has been a fixture of racing in his family for many years. His grandfather Ray Ingalls, father Doug Ingalls and brothers Doug Jr. and Justin have all raced there.

Jason also builds IRP (Ingalls Racing Products) Racecars as his day job. Travis runs Four Seasons Heating and Air over in Tyler. But tomorrow, they both head to Gene's Ark-La-Tex Speedway in a different capacity for a little turn-a-bout...

Jason pulls on the helmet and tries to become the first two-time winner of this 8th annual event. The first year of the TSM was 2008 and it was an Open Wheel "A" Modified race held at Diamond Park Speedway in southwest Arkansas -- not too far away from Ashdown, Arkansas where Mark Smith is from. Mark started this race in honor of his father, the late 'Tootsie' Smith. Apparently, dad got the nickname from his favorite snack and was a racer of course. He passed the love of the sport down to his son Mark who won many Modified races in a Hot Chassis before swapping over to Sport Mods. Jared Landers -- now a Lucas Oil Late Model star -- won that first Memorial Race in his Larry Shaw Chassis Modified.

The second year Mark made the show a 'Limited' Modified (Southern Sport Mod) race and the race was moved to Texarkana 67 Speedway where then IMCA racer Kris Rye of Corpus Christi became the first Limited winner of the Tootsie Smith Memorial. TSM III found a new home at Ark-La-Tex Speedway in 2010 when Mark himself took the win home after south Louisiana racer Shane Hebert's #9 didn't make it through tech after taking the checkered flag first. Smith was in a three-wide battle for 2nd that went down to the wire and turned out to be for the win instead! Hebert got redemption last year as the car was declared legal this time and he became the 7th different winner in as many TSM events and added it it to a long list of accomplishments in the class for Shane. John 'John-O' Whittington of Vidor, Texas scored the win in 2011 and Dereck Grigsby of Marshall, Texas won the 2013 edition. Ingalls's win came in 2012. Car counts boomed after the move to Ark-La-Tex as 67, 77, 77, 69 & a record 80 have showed up the past 5 years.

Travis will be a crew chief for his son Boone Evans who will drive the #4JR Four Seasons IRP Chassis in an attempt to make his first TSM A-main! The older Evans would be racing for that first TSM win himself but lost a motor last week at Lonestar Speedway.

Like a kid before Christmas here... Let's see what happens tomorrow!
