Kyle, Texas –Derek Scott’s Auto Park, a Chevrolet, Buick, GM dealer located just three miles south of Hearne, TX, opened in 2003.

Derek’s 14-year-old son, Derek Jr., will be competing in the 2014 season’s Pro Late Model class. When asked about his race sponsorship Derek said, “ I want to drive some more excitement to the track by having my employees involved in the action as well as my own friends and little Derek’s friends and fans.”
Derek Scott’s Auto Park Night at the Races will feature over 275 laps of high speed racing action highlighted by the Pro Late Models, Magnum Trailers & Wild Child Motorsports’ Pro Modifieds, Trucks, TALMS Limited Modifieds and Super Street Stocks and the Texas Pro Sedans.

In 2013 TALMS brought the largest car count of limited modifieds to each track that they raced at. According to Beddoe, “TALMS is going to have the tightest, most exciting racing Texas asphalt has seen in years. With an entry list that is starting to look like a “who’s who” of Texas racing, TALMS is not something drivers and race fans will want to miss..” With expectations to exceed last year’s TALMS car count at each CTS event this season, this is sure to be a show you won’t want to miss!
March 29th will also feature the Texas Pro Sedan Series’ 2014 race season premiere. Their presence at the Derek Scott’s Auto Park Night at the Races will mark the beginning of the series’ 39th consecutive season, making it one of the longest running series in Texas.
