Series History
The Southern Texas Late Model Series was created in 2012 by Mitch Wagner to follow the rules package that had been previously been set forth by the Texas Late Model Series. The series was based at Shady Oaks Speedway in Goliad, TX, and raced at both Shady Oaks Speedway and Texana Raceway Park in Edna, TX regularly from 2012 to 2014, with a single stop each at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, TX and South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi, TX during that time.

Part way through 2014, Mitch Wagner stepped down as series promoter/director, and handed over control of the series to Kody Hardage. Through this transition, the series, and all drivers involved at the time banded together to see to it that the remaining races scheduled produced good car counts and good exciting racing for the drivers and fans alike.

2015 proved to be a year that the STLMS would blossom into a competitive series that had a lot to offer to the fans, drivers, and the tracks that hosted the series. While the schedule was repeatedly threatened by weather and other circumstances beyond control the series proved to be growing and providing quality racing.  By the end of the season, the car counts had grown tremendously, and the series was alive and well.

2016 promises to be a stellar year with 11 races scheduled between Heart ‘O Texas Speedway in Elm Mott, TX and Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, TX. With 2 races in the books there have been many instances of 3 wide racing, and occasionally 4 wide. The drivers run the gamut from 30+ year veterans with multiple large touring series victories to the weekend racer that is out to have fun.
The Southern Texas Late Model Series intends to be the best series in the state of Texas for racers, tracks, and fans.

The series is run with the intention to make racing enjoyable for the racers, and in doing so, the show put on will be top quality.  It is important to all at STLMS to keep the series races a family friendly environment, and to interact with any and all fans, staff, and other drivers to help keep dirt track racing alive and well in the State of Texas.
