Billy Robinson Memorial Coming to Ark-La-Tex Speedway – Saturday June 25!

6/15/22 Vivian, LA (by DarinShort.com). Billy Robinson is one of the true legends of dirt track racing, and Ark-La-Tex Speedway will be hosting a memorial event in his honor on Saturday, June 25th, 2022. A full night of racing will be on tap, featuring a minimum of $1,000 to win each in the Modified, Pro-Mod, Limited Modified & Factory Stock divisions. The Front Wheel Drive 4-Cylinders (FWD) will round out the 5-division racing card.

Billy was born in Carthage Texas and spent most of his life living, working and racing based out of the Shreveport Louisiana area.

He would amass hundreds of wins and championships throughout his storied career and earned the respect of fans, track promoters and fellow drivers wherever he competed.

Besides his driving prowess, Billy also received respect from fellow drivers from competing in his own home-built car – which is quite a feat competing at that level against the vast amount of factory-built cars at the track.

FAST FACTS: There’s a lot of pertinent event details, so let’s jump right in:

FANS: The grandstands will open at 5pm on Saturday June 25th. Hot laps are slated for 7pm with racing at 7:30pm. Adult admission will be $20, while kids 6-11 can enjoy the show for just $10. Kids 5 and under will be admitted for free (with adult attendance). You can expect a great field of drivers from across the region competing in this event, so arrive early for the best shot of getting your desired seats! On race day, please use the track phone for event information, which is 318-375-3470.

Billy Robinson Memorial t-shirts will be available for purchase at the track on race night only. Be listening to the track announcer for details on where to purchase them.

Food, beverage, beer & souvenir concessions available on premises. No drink coolers are allowed to be brought through the main grandstand ticket gate.

RACERS: The pit area will be open at 3pm on Saturday June 25th. Draw-in for racing teams will be at 6:30pm, so please arrive on-time to help keep the event on schedule. There are no entry fees due for any of the five divisions racing. Click www.ArkLaTexSpeedway.com for division rules. The Modifieds, Pro Mods, Limited Modifieds and Factory Stocks will each be racing for $1,000 to win. FWD will be racing for their weekly purse structure. Hot laps will fire off at 7pm and the first green flag is set to fly at 7:30pm. Pit passes are $35, with kids (ages 6-11) $20, and ages 5 and under are free in the pits (with adult pit admission).

AGES UNDER 18 are required to complete a signed minors release form prior to pit area admittance. Forms are available at the pit shack upon arrival.

MODIFIED & PRO MOD DRIVERS: Billy Robinson primarily raced in these two divisions. In light of that, each driver in these two divisions signing in to race on June 25th will receive a free Billy Robinson event t-shirt upon signing in.
