"RACIN' GRAYSON" ALL SET for SPRINT CAR BANDITS SERIES RETURN on MAY 12th!
Bells, TX (05/03/18) by DarinShort.com. The newly renovated Grayson County Speedway (GCS) near Bells, Texas (approximately 35 miles NE of McKinney) is a racy ¼ mile bullring, as evidenced by the exciting Sprint Car Bandits series event held there last September.
30-second 2017 SCB rewind: Michael Day would chip away at the feature lead held by Zane Lawrence, and the two would race side-by-side within the tight confines of GCS, with Day squeaking by for the well-deserved feature win that left the GCS fans cheering throughout the victory lane celebration.
Race fans and teams can look forward to reliving last year’s excitement on Saturday, May 12th, when the winged 360 C.I. sprint cars of the Sprint Car Bandits return to GCS. As was the case in 2017, make sure to get there in time to grab the seat you want...as they will be going fast on race night. The first green flag is set to wave at 8pm.
Grayson County Speedway is located at 171 Busby Lane Bells, Texas 75414. Click www.GCSracing.com for complete track details. You can also email Mark@GCSracing.com or call (903) 892-3157 if you need additional information. Visit www.facebook.com/graysoncountyspeedway for the very latest in track updates, pictures and much more.
Gates open at 5pm on race day, Saturday May 12th, with racing at 8pm. Grayson County Speedway divisions will round out the full night of racing; including IMCA Modifieds, IMCA SportMods, I-Stock, Factory and Economy classes. The SCB are slated to run 2nd or 3rd division out, as in 2017.
Standard SCB posted rules and purse structure are in effect. No entry fee or series membership fee; $15 draw-in fee. Sprint car teams not familiar with SCB series rules or structures 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.
