Lone Star Practice Tree Shootout Presented by Farmers Insurance Recap/ Phillips Adds $1,000 To Friday’s Main Event Purse
The gates opened Thursday at noon for the 6th Annual Lone Star Summer Shootout at the Texas Motorplex presented by SDPC Raceshop and Chevrolet Performance. Racers were able to park, socialize, and The 4th Annual Practice Tree Race began at 6 PM.
This year’s Practice Tree Race was presented by Farmers Insurance Agent, Matt Holmes and paid $1,000 to the winner (Tommy Phillips, Forney, Texas), $400 to the runner-up (Ryan Gleghorn, Watagua, Texas), $150 to the semi-finalists, and $75 to competitors in the round of 8.
After a few bad hits at the tree and racers encouragement Phillips decided to have a little fun and entered this year’s practice tree race. Although Phillips defeated Gleghorn and won the Lone Star Practice Tree Shootout Big Check, he is donating all of his winning back into Friday’s purse.
Now racers will have a chance to win $6,000 instead of the original $5,000 in Friday’s Main Event.
The Texas Motorplex was generous enough to loan the Champions’ Club where racers could get comfortable in the beautiful air-conditioned venue and spend time with fellow racers.
Matt Holmes had a great display where he gave away several door prizes and was able to hang out and kick back with the Lone Star Summer Shootout racers.
Holmes offers a wide variety of insurance solutions including auto insurance, home insurance, life insurance, renters insurance, business insurance, motorcycle insurance, recreational insurance, Farmers Financial Solutions and umbrella insurance.
