Sprint Car Bandits ‘Air Performance 35 presented by BRODIX Inc.’ at Superbowl Speedway Sat. June 9th!
Mesquite, TX (05/16/18) by DarinShort.com. The 360C.I. Sprint Car Bandits series is pleased to announce the Air Performance 35 presented by BRODIX Inc. at Superbowl Speedway near Greenville Texas on Saturday, June 9th.
This unique event will reward the winning driver a minimum of $2,000 to win, and possibly up to $2,800 to win. By the efforts of primary event sponsors Rodd Hanna’s Air Performance (Rockwall, TX) and BRODIX Inc. (Mena, AR), the feature race will be extended from 25 laps to 35.
At the time of writing, a minimum of $2,150 added cash will be paid out in bonus money on June 9th!
Rodd Hanna, owner of www.AirPerformanceDFW.com has a 20+ year friendship and business relationship with the Brotherton family, owners of www.BRODIX.com and between all of them they’ve been great supporters of sprint car racing throughout the years. They’ve also collaborated on R&D with Rodd’s sprint car, that has primarily been driven by Pete Butler.
Rodd and Pete picked up the Short Track Nationals championship at I-30 Speedway in 1996. Rodd’s car has been side-lined recently while Pete has been recovering from some racing, and non-racing related injuries. Rodd is unsure at the time of writing if his car will compete in this event…but we will keep you posted.
Here’s how the bonus money for the Air Performance 35 presented by BRODIX will work:
- After the completion of lap 25, there will be lap money paid out to the race leader in the amount of $50/lap for laps 26-28, and lap 30.
- Lap 29 will pay the feature race leader $200 from Air Performance (Rodd’s car number)
- Laps 31-34 will pay each lap leader $100/lap.
- Lap 35 will pay the final lap leader $200 (in addition to the $1,800/win) for a total of $2,000 to win.
- IN ADDITION, Rodd Hanna is sponsoring $250 in the AIR PERFORMANCE ‘KEEP IT COOL’ Bonus. The recipient(s) of that special prize money will go to the driver that is running in the last place on the lead lap for every lap 26-35 and will be paid in the amount of $25 per lap! (For example, let’s say that all 20 cars finish on the lead lap and you were in last the final 10 laps, you’ll receive $550 for 20th instead of $300.)
Translated, at this exact moment, if you lead laps 26 through 35 at the Air Performance 35 presented by BRODIX Inc., you’ll be taking home a cool $2,800 cash! We will post new lap sponsors or added awards as they become known.
The 35-lap feature pays down generously to $300 to start (see below for complete breakdown). All non-qualifiers or non-starters will each receive $100. There is no entry fee, no series membership fee and just a $15 nightly draw fee.
If you would like to sponsor any of the laps, just email Darin at email@example.com with the lap(s) you would like to sponsor along with your contact/business information. Cash is due at the track by race day prior to the start of the event (give to Steve). Even if you're a driver or fan and you want to sponsor your car number's lap in the feature, that works too! Lap sponsors are $50 or $100/lap. It's your choice.
Sprint Car teams: you are highly encouraged to get involved by providing a lap award for the feature event…as it’s going all back to you, the racers – so let’s see how big, collectively, we can make it! And it doesn’t have to be for a leader, you can be creative.
For example, Steve Lang of the L&S Motorsports www.lang14.com sprint car is putting up $100 to the 14th place running car on lap 14 in the feature race. Again, sprint teams: please get involved! Let’s get this event really rocking!
There’s more?! Yes, the BRODIX BONUS: BRODIX Inc. will be giving the first 30 sprint teams that sign in at the SCB table on race night a BRODIX GIFT BAG…so make sure you’re in the pits and signed up in time to get one! What’s inside it?! You’ll just have to be one of the first 30 SCB teams signing in to find out!

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 thus far, 65 have competed with the series in the first five events of 2018. Series rules are posted at the link above and will be followed at each SCB event, so make sure your car is compliant before arriving at the track.
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 DFW area fans getting to see quality sprint car race at a lower grandstand ticket price.
When you combine those components with lower nightly competitor operating purses, it all equals one thing: the new Sprint Car Bandits series!
