June 1, 2016.
The Board of Directors of the Short Track Auto Racing Series, LLC (STARS) unanimously approved the dissolution of STARS for various reasons at a Board of Directors meeting held on May 31, 2016.
The Board citied that STARS was unable to reach an agreement with the Grundy County Fair Board on a viable 2016 contract, the loss of sponsors, and health issues with some of the management team were all contributing factors.
This decision was not an easy decision to make and we are saddened that STARS will not be part of the 2016 season in this area.
We want to thank all of our sponsors, team owners, competitors in all divisions, our track help, and our fans for their support in the past five years.

What does this mean for LMRS???
This is very sad news and a very hard blow to our Series! We will survive and we are already working on getting race dates with other tracks! Thank you to STARS for everything you have done for the drivers, teams and fans through the years! Saturday night racing out at Grundy County Speedway will be missed!
