No Prep racing has taken off like wildfire over the last couple of years, and continues to grow by the day, with a slew of new events with ever-larger payouts on the docket. Now, the Dignight Street Racing crew is bringing the biggest paying No Prep event in history back to the state of Texas with the Lonestar Resurrection race to be held at Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, TX, September 23rd through the 25th. This event promises to bring out all the big guns in the No Prep world, with the biggest payout in history at an amazing $153,000. This is bigger than the biggest No Prep race by a wide margin, and just speaks to the amazing fan and racer attendance.

Lonestar Resurrection has partnered with SpeedVideo to live broadcast the event in “HD” to the thousands at home that can’t be in Texas to witness this historic weekend. MSD Ignition is the proud presenting sponsor of the Live Stream, along with sponsors Driven Racing Oil, QA1, FAST Fuel Injection, Late Model Engines, and Canton.

DSC_7286Jerrod Thompson, Lonestar Resurrection’s promoter, is very clear with the goals of this event. “Our goal is to bring the best racing entertainment to Texas, so we start with the best venues, add the fastest cars and top it off with the biggest payouts.”

This event will definitely have some action packed racing with a variety of classes that includes everything from Pure Street, all the way up to the big dogs of the Run What You Brung class, where anything goes and the fastest of the fast compete.

When Thompson says he is laying out some serious cash for payouts, he’s not joking when it comes to the Lonestar Resurrection. Starting with the Outlaw Street class, the winner can pocket a cool $5,000, and the runner-up earning a nice $1,000 for their efforts.

Stepping up to the Small Tire class you will get to see the likes of Sergio ‘Flaco’ Gonzalez in his nasty “Cornfed 2.0” S-10 and Chris ‘BoostedGT’ Hamilton lock horns for $5,000 in the Small Tire Shootout, and then the $20,000 purse that goes to the winner of the Small Tire class.

The kings of the No Prep world rule from the throne of the Run What You Brung class, and they’ll be racing for a vault full of cash at this event. You can be sure that, with $50,000 going to the winner and $20,000 going to the runner-up of Big Tire, that racers like Kye Kelley, James ‘Birdman’ Finney, and many more will be showing up to Royal Purple Raceway for their shot at the money.

In addition, Thompson is throwing a second chance race for the Run What You Brung class that pays a cool $15,000 to the winner and $1,000 for the runner up. That kind of payout for a second chance race is one of the biggest ever and backs up the claims that everything is bigger in Texas for sure.

Thompson and DigNight Street Racing are redefining the No Prep racing game with each of their ground breaking events. “If you want to be the fastest you have to race the fastest — the next No Prep racing star could be found at this race,” he says.
