Regarding the Sprint Car rules edits and reminders for this event, they are very small in nature:
-Mufflers are now optional at this event.
-Tires must be Hoosier Racing Tires on all four corners. After hot laps, you must make your rear tire selection for the night, and your rear tires will be marked, and you must run those two tires through the balance of the event. The LR tire must be a Hoosier 92 and must durometer 35 or higher when we stamp it. The RR tire must durometer 45 or higher (example the Hoosier RaceSaver or ASCS stamped RR). No tire bleeders. (Additional info is posted under the ‘rules’ link on series site.)
-Top wing angle must be set to 20° throughout the night. No hydraulic sliders allowed. Go to the rules page at www.SprintCarBandits.com for a very thorough instructional video if you need assistance setting your wing angle. All drivers must follow all Sprint Car Bandits rules and procedures (posted at the SCB website under ‘rules&rsquo. Reminder to pay close attention to our start/restart rules if you’re not familiar with them.
-Pre-entry to this event is required (for all divisions) and takes about 30 seconds to complete, it’s free through 5/10/19. Go to www.sprintcarbandit.com/051119 and get your team entered so we can pre-publicize the drivers that fans can expect to see. If you choose not to pre-enter by 5/10/19 (day before race) there will be a $30 registration fee due upon sign in on race night (for all divisions). Thank you to the teams that have already completed this quick and easy step.

Shootout, the Monarch Midget Championships and Limited Modified Madness…all taking place on one night - Saturday, May 11th at 7pm!
It even gets better for race fans, as they can purchase advance discount tickets to this event for just $20 by going directly to www.sprintcarbandits.com/051119 or by going to www.SprintCarBandits.com and then clicking the ‘May 11’ link at the top of the home page. Advance discount tickets are available through the end of May 10th (night before the event).
Yep. There’s still more: we haven’t forgotten that the day after the event is Mother’s Day! For all mothers that purchase their discount advance tickets by May 10th, they will each receive an $8 food credit at the concessions stand – our way of giving all moms a free Mother’s Day Dinner, courtesy of Monarch Motor Speedway!
Adult tickets on the day of the race are $22 (ages 11-64), while kids (ages 6-11) are $5 and Seniors/Active Military are $15. Pit passes on May 11th are $35.
RACE FANS: Make plans to arrive early at the track to take in the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits “Fierce 15” Fan Fest! It will take place directly next to the main ticket window from 6pm until about 6:45pm. There, you can meet the drivers of the Fierce 15, get selfies, purchase their 2019 t-shirt designs (get them autographed!) and get a good close look at the cars. SCB Fan Fest is an effort to help sprint car racing get back to the good ‘ol days when there was generally more fan interaction with the race teams. Back then it was common for most of the fans to go to the pits after the races to meet with the teams, and now in many cases the races at tracks don’t finish in time to make that feasible. This is an effort to fire back up that interaction by simply flipping the timing element. Pre-race Fan Fest will take place at every SCB series event in 2019.
If you’d like to get your brand new Fierce 15 driver t-shirts prior to Fan Fest, the new online store at www.SprintCarBandits.com is now open. Reminder, that proceeds from Fierce 15 driver apparel benefits each individual driver that is a part of the program, so please show your support by grabbing one when you can...and your support will help drivers better funded throughout the season.
