Cajun Party Time: Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ Schedule Set for November 8-12

Written by Chris Moore

SHREVEPORT, LA – It’s Cajun party time!

For the third consecutive year, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco heads to the Ark-La-Tex corridor in a combined effort with the series’ growing Ollie’s-sponsored ‘Cajun Region’ for a five-night swing Nov. 8-12.

Ollie’s presents the ‘Cajun Swing’ visiting three different facilities in two states, with $37,000 in winners’ shares up for grabs for STSS Modified competitors.

For the first time in history, the stars of the Northeast-based Short Track Super Series visit Texas on Tuesday, Nov. 8 and Wednesday, Nov. 9. The state-of-the-art Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas hosts the ‘Cajun Swing’ for two nights of action.

While the ‘Cajun Region’ has ventured to the Lone Star State, the Northeastern contingent will make its debut in Texas – the 11th different state visited for the series.

Tuesday night’s (Nov. 8) winner will reward the first time Texas winner with a $4,000 payday at the conclusion of 30 green-flag laps.

The following night – Nov. 9 – the STSS returns to Rocket Raceway Park with $5,000 up for grabs after 35 laps in Night No. 2.

The Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ heads two hours east to a familiar stop on Thursday (Nov. 10): Vivian, La.’s Ark-La-Tex Speedway. Another $4,000 top prize at the end of 35 laps is on the line in Round No. 3 of the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing.’

Rounds No. 4 & 5 of the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ bring the stars of the STSS to Greenwood, La.’s Boothill Speedway.

Boothill Speedway – the site of last year’s opening round – will celebrate its 50th anniversary season with the final two nights of the ‘Cajun Swing.’

Friday (Nov. 11) features a 30-lap, $4,000-to-win main event before Saturday’s grand prize.

Saturday’s (Nov. 12) finale of the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Swing’ rewards the winner with a $20,000 paycheck at the end of 50 laps in the ‘Gunslinger’ special.

The entire five-night swing will be broadcast live to a national audience on FloRacing (www.floracing.tv) as part of the $150 annual subscription.

Good Recovery: Caleb Dillard Returns to Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ Victory Lane Saturday at Super Bee

CHATHAM, LA – A good recovery.

After fuel pump issues sidelined his primary car on Friday night, Caleb Dillard was back in his No. 18 on Saturday at Super Bee Speedway in Chatham, La., picking up a victory in the 25-lap Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ event.

Dillard led wire-to-wire in the 25-lap main, Round No. 9 of the Day Motor Sports point series.

The win for Dillard, the defending series champion and current point leader, was his fourth of the season worth $1,000.

Anthony Meek of Markee, La., chased Dillard across the line, followed by Tommy Rascoe of Converse, La., Friday night winner Koty Adams of Doyline, La., and Alan Myers of Sibley, La.

The first 22 laps of the event spun off caution-free before the event’s first yellow was thrown.

Next up for the Ollie’s Cajun Region is Day Motor Sports Round No. 10 at 105 Speedway in Cleveland, Texas on Saturday, August 27.

Hard Fought: Koty Adams Nurses Ailing Engine to STSS Ollie’s Cajun Region Sabine Win

MANY, LA – A hard-fought victory.

Koty Adams nursed an ailing engine to the checkered flag first in Friday night’s Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s Cajun Region stop at Sabine Speedway in Many, La.

Adams, of Doyline, La., narrowly fought off Tommy Rascoe as his car erupted in smoke and lost power on the race’s final lap.

Adams, utilizing the extreme outside lane of the Sabine bullring, led from the drop of the green flag before swapping the lead with Rascoe during the race’s second half.

Rascoe briefly slipped by Adams on the 16th lap. Rascoe’s time out front, however, was short-lived.

Adams regained control on the 20th circuit – and despite plumes of smoke and leaking fluid on the final circuit – thwarted Rascoe’s last-lap bid to earn the $1,000 victory, his second of the season in Round No. 8 of the Day Motor Sports point series.

“The engine blew coming to the white flag. It started smoking and losing power. I just figured it wouldn’t really help to shut it down. Had that race gone another half-lap, I wouldn’t be standing here.”

Adams credited Rascoe after the back-and-forth battle.

“My hat’s off to Tommy Rascoe,” Adams said. “He drove a clean, hard race.”

Rascoe, of Converse, La., settled for second ahead of Cody Robbins of Mansfield, La., Alan Myers of Sibley, La., and Caleb Dillard of Robeline, La., who started last in a borrowed ride after fuel pump issues with his primary No. 18.

The visit to Sabine was the first of two Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ events over the weekend. The series headed to Super Bee Speedway in Chatham, La., on Saturday.

STSS Cajun Double: Sabine Speedway & Super Bee Speedway This Weekend

Written by Chris Moore

SHREVEPORT, LA – Double-dip weekend.

The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ prepares for a full race weekend in the Bayou State.

First up, the ‘Cajun Region’ competitors head to Sabine Speedway in Many, La. on Friday, August 5.

The visit to Sabine will be the second and final one of the season for the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region.’ Robeline, La.’s Caleb Dillard was victorious in the first appearance of the season back on May 20. The ‘Doc Dillard Memorial’ was the highest-paying event to date in the ‘Cajun Region’ with a $2,500 top prize.

Dillard was triumphant over Sibley, La.’s Alan Myers and Benton, La.’s Keith Badiali for the milestone victory.

The following night, Saturday, August 6, the Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ heads to Super Bee Speedway in Chatham, La. for the seventh time in history – the most attended track by the ‘Cajun Region’ in its two-year existence.

Converse, La.’s Tommy Rascoe won the only ‘Cajun Region’ appearance of 2022 at Super Bee, besting Dillard, and Myers for his second career triumph.

Dillard leads the STSS Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ standings heading into the double-dip weekend, fresh off his win at 105 Speedway in Cleveland, Texas.

Tommy Rascoe sits second in the ‘Cajun Region’ standings, 71 markers behind Dillard with Doyline, La.’s Koty Adams rounding out the top three, 119-points behind Dillard.

Keith Badiali and Alan Myers round out the top-five in the 2022 standings.

Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ Debuts in Houston Market, Dillard Tops 105 Speedway Event

CLEVELAND, TX – The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ debuted in the Houston, Texas market with a massive crowd at 105 Speedway on Saturday night.

After 25 laps, point leader Caleb Dillard picked up the milestone victory at the Cleveland, Texas facility, Round No. 7 of the Day Motor Sports point series.

Dillard, of Robeline, La., drove from eighth starting position to take his third Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ triumph of the season, having previously won at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La., on April 9 and Sabine Speedway in Many, La., on May 20.

Dillard marched through traffic, ultimately making the pass of race-long leader Brother Fowlkes on lap 17.

“This car doesn’t really shine until the track gets black and takes some rubber,” Dillard said. “Luckily, I hit the setup right on the head tonight.  What a great racetrack; I told my Dad I’ve run on a lot of tracks, but that’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had in a race car.”

Fowlkes, of Woodworth, La., finished second, followed by Richard Holt (Atlanta, Texas), Tommy Rascoe of Converse, La., and Alan Myers of Sibley, La.

Only one caution slowed the 25-lap event.

Racing resumes for the STSS Ollie’s ‘Cajun Region’ Friday, August 5 at Sabine Speedway (Many, La.) and Saturday, August 6 at Super Bee Speedway (Chatham, La.).

First-Timer: Koty Adams Breaks Through at Ark-La-Tex in Ollie’s Cajun Region

Written by Chris Moore

VIVIAN, LA – Koty Adams claimed his first-ever Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s Cajun Region victory on Saturday night at Ark-La-Tex Speedway.

The Doyline, La., native raced from his eighth starting position to claim the $1,050 payday – besting the 22-car field.

Adams took home an extra $50 courtesy of Shed Road Auto Parts as the event’s Hard Charger.

Woodworth, La.’s Brother Fowlkes and Robeline, La.’s Caleb Dillard led the field to the opening green flag for the 20-lap main event.

Markee, La.’s Anthony Meek wasted no time, as he raced to the top spot while Dillard and Adams cleared Fowlkes to round out the podium runners.

A lap-10 restart gave Adams a shot on the front row alongside Meek, after passing Dillard in lap traffic during the previous nine lap green flag run.

Adams used the outside groove on the restart, taking the lead away for good from his fellow Bayou State competitor.

Adams cruised for the remaining 10 laps to his breakthrough STSS Ollie’s Cajun Region victory.

The win moves Adams into second place in the Day Motor Sports points chase for the Ollie’s Cajun Region competitors.

Anthony Meek claimed his best career STSS Ollie’s Cajun Region finish, taking home a runner-up finish. Point leader Caleb Dillard had another strong showing, rounding out the podium finishers.

Brother Fowlkes claimed the fourth spot and McLeod, Texas resident Richard Holt rounded out the top five.

The Short Track Super Series Ollie’s Cajun Region Day Motor Sports point series takes one week off, then returns to Ark-La-Tex Speedway for Round No. 7 on Saturday, July 23.
