  10. Sprint Car Bandits Finale Ends with Wild Event at 82; 2020 Schedule Posted Garland, TX (10/16/19) Track/Series Publicity & Event Marketing by DarinShort.com. The conclusion of the 4th season of the Sprint Car Bandits® series was held this past Saturday, October 12th at 82 Speedway in Petty, Texas with the running of the $31,500 Paul Peters Memorial event. Going into the final event, the series championship was still up for grabs, with a scant 27 points separated points leader Will Eggimann over Dale Wester, which roughly equated to 5 finishing positions that Wester needed to finish ahead of Eggimann to claim the title. But before we jump right to the center of the cinnamon roll, let’s rewind the night as it unfolded: Cool-ish, yet clear and calm fall weather conditions greeted the fans and 100 race teams assembled in four divisions, after a strong storm system exited the area the day before. Recording artist and The Voice contestant Trey Rose was on hand to meet with the fans during the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest. Trey would also kick off opening ceremonies by singing The National Anthem before a very appreciative crowd. Click https://youtu.be/7Cn8N4W9UCY if you’d like to see the video of his performance. Trey’s appearance at the event was provided by the Sprint Car Bandits series. Special thanks to Applebee’s in Paris, TX and Dairy Queen on Lamar Street in Paris for providing Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest giveaways for fans and kids. Over 100 kids swag bags were given away during Fan Fest. The www.KoolTrikes.com heat race winners were Will Eggimann and Casey Burkham. Burkham won his heat from the 4th starting position, which gave him enough overall points to become the www.FixYourGenerator.com High Points Award recipient – and an additional $100 from Fred Summers, sponsor of the award. The 25-lap series championship feature would fire off with similar fashion of the last series stop at 82 Speedway, that being, the race would go green for a long distance. But on lap 23 disaster struck that all began when the left rear tire on Will Eggimann’s J&J Racing sprinter would somehow slide off its beadlock wheel causing him to lose speed going down the backstretch. Chipper Wood clipped his left side, as did the second place driver of polesitter Casey Burkham, all culminating with the #71 of Colby Estes getting crossed up and upside down just past the apex of corners 3 and 4. During the red flag stoppage, outside front row starter and leader, Michael Day, would not be able to refire after the yellow flag came out to resume the race, forcing Day pitside for the remaining two laps. Meanwhile, Eggimann had dropped pitside after sustaining damage on that backstretch fracas…which suddenly put Dale Wester in prime position to claim the points championship! The event resumed with a torrid 3-car battle up front between Burkham, Stubblefield and Wester. Stubblefield briefly took the lead before Burkham would take command, while Wester would take second place from Stubblefield. But when they crossed the finish line, Burkham would end up taking home $2,100 for the win, with Stubblefield regaining second from Wester on the final lap. When the mud clods quit flying, it appeared that Wester should have finished high enough to claim the Series title – however after adding and re-adding the points totals, Eggimann had garnered 8 more markers than Wester in the final points battle. After the event, Dale Wester was smiling from ear to ear and commented: “I really had fun racing this series. I came to the track tonight with the attitude that I’m just going to do my best, and whatever happens, happens. And it sure was close at the end!” A stunned Eggimann had to be towed into victory lane to receive his championship award – after thinking that his DNF was going to cost him the title. But after he reviewed the points, before and after, he had the following comments to make: “This is the first time in my racing career that I’ve been able to follow a complete series from start to finish, and a lot of that had to do with favorable economics of the Sprint Car Bandits rules package. Between the wing angle and ‘one tire all night’ rules of the ‘Bandits, not only does it make for consistently good racing, but it helps keep all the racer’s budgets regarding consumables in check…and as a byproduct, it even produces consistently competitive races.” Eggimann continues: “All season long, faster cars have been able to advance positions on the tracks that our series go to – so clearly – this series has got a rules package that works for racers and track promoters alike, which is really refreshing when so much of sprint car racing nationwide is being controlled by high budget teams, which is not economically sustainable to the majority of the other teams. I’m thankful for the rules platform that the Sprint Car Bandits has developed, because I’m not a big budget team.” Following Eggimann’s sentiment, Steve Golightly, 8-year executive crew chief on the #74E of Claud Estes III, comments: “Everyone knows that sprint car racing is expensive, and the Estes family regularly fields 3-4 cars at Sprint Car Bandits events. What we have found is that between the strong series purse structure and tire/wing angle rules, we’re able to keep fielding cars without burning up our racing budget.” Golightly continues: “I just took a picture of Claud’s left rear tire after tonight’s feature race. It looks brand new. That tire has 33 laps on it from tonight, plus hot laps – and it’s the same tire we used at the last ‘Bandits event, where we had to run 45 laps due to being in the B-feature. By the time you had hot laps to it, that tire easily has 85 laps on it – and it will be used again at our next ‘Bandits race.” In the past, co-crew chief’s on the Estes cars Doc Miller and Lonnie Bright help keep the family team hitting the track with well-prepared cars at each series event, and their past service is much appreciated. Claud would finish 2019 Series points in 3rd place. 2018 SCB series champion Colby Estes would end up in 5th place this season (after missing the opening night due to family obligations).

  11. Racers/ Team Owners/ Fans, Something I've been watching closely and noticed a trend in is our exposure to social media at our local tracks. I see tons upon tons of post showing action at others tracks around the nation and these tracks have some serious car counts and tons of sponsors. Which just as many of you may imagine of the track and cars are getting exposure, more will jump on. I know I may only be a racer and team owner, however I ask that everyone use social media (Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook) effectively with the right hashtags. I think Facebook is old news and everyone uses Instagram mostly, with that said, pull them phones out take pictures and video of live actions. We need more people to know this track exist and we'd like to continue turning laps on it. Any representatives from TSTRS please post any and all hashtags we should use in order to be most effective. Much Appreciated, Corey
  12. Aaron Reutzel Vies for Trophy Cup Title this Weekend by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (October 17, 2019) – With a second consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title in the books for 2019, Aaron Reutzel takes aim at this weekend’s Trophy Cup title at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA. Reutzel will wheel teammate Josh Baughmans’s Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 17 for the three-day tilt that fires off Thursday night. “I love racing at Tulare, it’s a place that just really suits my driving style when it’s up on the fence,” Reutzel says. Reutzel captured one of his initial wins in 410-ci Sprint Car action atop the Thunderbowl clay in 2015 and then nabbed his first career World of Outlaws Sprint Car win at the same facility in 2018. Reutzel has made a pair of Trophy Cup starts previously with a top-ten showing in the 2016 rendition of the prestigious 360-ci event. Reutzel’s most recent action aboard the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car netted a top-five finish at the World of Outlaws-sanctioned “National Open” at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA. After a fifth-place finish in the Friday, October 4, preliminary event, Reutzel finished out the weekend with a fourth-place run in the Saturday finale. Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team overcame Friday night adversity, forced to change engines after the Dash and then proceeding to race from 12th to secure a top-five finish. “At one point we were really rolling there and got up to fifth right away,” Reutzel says. “Then the wing valve got stuck so I couldn’t move it any and we got a little too loose at the end to gain any more.” On Saturday, Reutzel rebounded from another early issue and was had the leaders within reach before finishing fourth. “We got into the wall at the start and fell back to ninth,” Reutzel recalls. “We got bac up there and had third on three different occasions and a caution would come out. Then we were running down the leader after the open red, and right when we got to him the rubber laid down.” This weekend brings a change of scenery for the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry with Trophy Cup action in California. 2019 Quick Stats: 81 races, 18 wins, 43 top-fives, 56 top-tens. Next Up: Trophy Cup at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

  13. I-37 point standing as of Sept 23

    If a driver races every race , at the end they can throw the bad race out, if a driver missed a race , they can't, they have to take the good with the bad.
  14. I-37 point standing as of Sept 23

    So if a driver races all of the races, they have points taken away? If a driver misses a race, they keep all of their points?

  18. I-37 Delivered!

    I totally agree. It was my first race at I-37 (and for my two friends also), and I was not disappointed. It was a great show, and we saw lots of cars and lots of racing action. A couple of the feature races had 24-25 cars starting, after eliminating several cars in the heats and B-Main. We loved all the sounds and smells of all of the racing action, especially when about 25 cars started the SportMod feature. I hope to see a similar show at Cotton Bowl Speedway this weekend. I'm adjusting to the dirt . . . bought some clear safety goggles to wear with my contacts this upcoming weekend at CBS! I'd like to add my personal thanks and appreciation to Kris Workman for his hard work in promoting the event and helping to raise money for breast cancer, which is a cause dear to my heart. And a special thanks goes out to Kelly Earnhardt for racing in my honor during the Powder Puff event. Thanks also to Bob Caulfield for loaning her a car to drive in that race. I'm really looking forward to going back again next year.
  19. I-37 Delivered!

    Great show at I-37 Speedway with 90+ cars in 3 classes. Lots of 3 and sometimes 4 wide racing all night. Add to that the successful Powder Puff and Power Puff event that raised $20,000 for Cancer research. Hats off and thank you to all involved ! Now we move on to Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige , Tx. for their big Octoberfast event. With big payouts across the board this should be a 100+ car count event not to be missed. Come early the stands will be filled for sure!
