It has been a LONG time since winged 360 C.I. sprint cars have competed at the racy 1/4 mile bullring, and local fans are all abuzz with news of this event - so if you are going, make sure to get there in time to get the seat you want...as they will be going fast on race night.
Grayson County Speedway is located at 171 Busby Lane Bells, Texas 75414. Click www.GCSracing.com for complete track details.

Gates open at 5pm on race day, Saturday September 16th, with racing at 8pm. Grayson County Speedway divisions will round out the full night of racing; including IMCA Modifieds, IMCA SportMods, Street Stocks, Factory and Economy classes.
25-lap SCB feature race payback for Saturday, September 16th: $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.
As a reminder, previously our draw-in rules have changed for 2017. Now all sprint car teams that sign in will draw for heat race starting positions, regardless of their engine C.I. displacement (maximum 360), and will receive passing points to determine their straight-up from points feature race starting position. All drivers make sure to read/adhere to the posted rules at the series website prior to heading to the track.
We would like to thank the sponsors of the Sprint Car Bandits series: Blaine's Motor Supply, Rodd Hanna's Air Performance, A&M Glass Service, Palm Harbor Homes, Kustom Craft, Gen-Tech at FixYourGenerator.com, The Oil Medics, Mow Time in Farmersville, Griffith Trucking Equipment, PRO-TECH
Service Company, Simpson Race Products, Ultra Shield Race Products, Lightning Wings, Rod End Supply, Spellbound Boutiques of Rockwall and DarinShort.com.
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 purse is already guaranteed to be $2,000 to win and $300/start at all events - all due to these sponsorship commitments!
If your business is interested in getting involved with the SCB series, please contact Steve Lang directly at: SteveLang14@gmail.com or by calling 469-474-8234. There are effective programs available for all sizes of budgets.
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 DFW area, as so far 65 have competed with the series in 2017. Series rules are posted at the link below 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!
