SHREVEPORT, LA – Take three.
The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s Cajun Region is set to embark on its third season.
A 14-race schedule spanning eight speedways is in place for the budding stars of the Cajun Region contingent during the Day Motor Sports point series.
Two-time defending champion Caleb Dillard, of Robeline, La., will look to fend off a growing crop of racers for his third consecutive title.
After joining midway through last season, Ollie’s returns in 2023 as the title sponsor of the Cajun Region.
Day Motor Sports of Tyler, Texas again serves as the point series presenting sponsor and American Racer tire distributor for the region.
The 14-race schedule takes place in Louisiana and Texas, the hotbed for the Ollie’s Cajun Region, with one new track set to be added to the record books in 2023.
It all kicks off on April 1 in Cleveland, Texas when the Ollie’s Cajun Region invades 105 Speedway for the first of five trips to the quarter-mile oval.
Boothill Speedway, the host of the 2022 ‘Gunslinger 50,’ which paid $20,000-to-win in last year’s Ollie’s Cajun Swing, will host two events in 2023 on April 15 and again on Sept. 23.
Familiar stops on the docket include Super Bee Speedway in Chatham, La., Many, La.’s Sabine Speedway, and Vivian, La.’s Ark-La-Tex Speedway.
Rocket Raceway Park also returns to the schedule for the second consecutive season on Saturday, June 17. The Petty, Texas quarter mile also hosted two Cajun Swing events in 2022.
The newcomer to the ‘23 Ollie’s Cajun Region is arguably the Lone Star State’s most famous venue, Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. The series debuts at Devil’s Bowl on Saturday, Aug. 19.
A complete schedule can be found on the series website: https://shorttracksuperseriescajun.com/?page_id=30
The ‘Cajun Swing’ tentative dates are set for Nov. 7-11 with details to be released later.
Before the first on-track action of ’23, the Cajun Region contingent celebrates ’22 on Saturday, Jan. 28 with an Awards Banquet at Lasyone’s Meat Pie Restaurant in Natchitoches, La.
