Texarkana 67 Speedway Hosts Sprint Car Bandits 360C.I. Series This Saturday, April 14
Texarkana, AR (4/9/18) by DarinShort.com. The 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits (SCB) makes its series debut in Arkansas at the ¼ mile semi-banked Texarkana 67 Speedway this coming Saturday, April 14th at 8pm. The event will pay $2,000 to the 25-lap feature winners, $1,000 for second place and pays down generously to $300 to start each event (see below for complete breakdown). All non-qualifiers or non-starters will each receive $100. There is no driver entry fee, no series membership fee and just a $15 nightly draw fee.
Sprint car teams not familiar with SCB series rules should go to www.SprintCarBandits.com prior to arrival for complete rules and procedures information.
Note all sprint car teams that sign in will draw for heat race starting positions, regardless of their engine C.I. displacement (360 or under) and will receive passing points to determine their straight-up from points feature race starting position. All SCB legal teams will compete for the same posted purse regardless of C.I. displacement (360 or under).
The SCB series has a unique rules package that allows teams to use their current equipment (especially in the engine compartment) yet curbing nightly tire expense...which helps equalize the competition, with teams of varying budget sizes. That rules package certainly has the vote of many of the drivers in the region, as 70 competed with the series in 2017! We also highly encourage drivers that have yet to compete in our series to visit with any of the teams that have. It takes just minutes to make a typical winged sprint car SCB rules compliant.
Between the lower operating cost of the SCB series and the addition of sponsor funds into nightly purses, it is allowing more area race tracks to book events - which all translates into area fans getting to see quality sprint car race at a lower grandstand ticket price. Adult tickets to this event are just $15!
When you combine those components with lower nightly competitor operating purses, it all equals one thing: the new Sprint Car Bandits series!
The Sprint Car Bandits are part of a 2-day special event at Texarkana 67 Speedway. The Friday night portion of the weekend features Texarkana 67 Speedway racing divisions. On Saturday night the Sprint Car Bandits series will have a complete racing program, plus the Texarkana 67 Speedway racing divisions. Adult tickets on the Saturday night portion are just $15! Pit passes are $35. Details are posted at the track website, listed below. The first green flag on Saturday April 14th is slated for 8pm.
Texarkana 67 Speedway is located at 10641 E Broad St, Texarkana, AR 71854 and is quite easy to get to. Take the 'Hwy 108' exit off I-30 (exit 7, which is 7 miles from the Arkansas border – the Flying J is on the opposite side of intersection), then head south on Hwy 108 about 3/4 mile until it dead ends at Broad Street – also known as Hwy 67. Head east (left) on Hwy 67 and you will run into the track in about 2.8 miles. The track entrance will be on your left (north). Click www.texarkana67speedway.godaddysites.com for the track webpage. The first green flag on Saturday April 14th is slated for 8pm.
25-lap SCB feature race payback for this event: $2,000, $1,000, $600, $500, $400, $390, $380, $370, $360, $350, $340, $330, $320, $310, $300, $300, $300, $300, $300, $300. $100 for non-qualifiers or non-starters. No entry fee or series membership fee; $15 draw-in fee.
We would like to thank the sponsors of the Sprint Car Bandits series: Rodd Hanna's Air Performance, A&M Glass Service, Palm Harbor Homes, Kustom Craft Exhibits, Gen-Tech at FixYourGenerator.com, Mow Time in Farmersville, RockAuto.com, Pro-Tech Service Co., Scott Baylor Racing Engines, American Elevator Technologies, South Dallas Battery & Electric Co., Gary Floyd Homes, Utility Trailer of Dallas, Inc., DFW Urethane, Valvoline Express Care of Seagoville and the SCB points fund is sponsored by Smiley’s Racing Products & Hoosier Tire Southwest.
With each SCB sponsor announcement, the series can continue to implement one of its primary missions, and that is adding to the already excellent competitor purses. If you noticed, the SCB 2016 minimum guaranteed purse was $1,200 to win and $300 to start - yet every event paid more than that. Our 2017 purses never fell below $2,000 to win and $300/start at any event - all due to these sponsorship commitments! Our goal is to continue with the same plan for the 2018 season.
If your business is interested in getting involved with the SCB series, please contact Mary Lang directly at: SteveLang14@gmail.com or by calling 469-474-8234. There are effective programs available for all sizes of budgets.
