Texas Thunder Speedway track promoter Pat Wilson may be crazy. But it sure is fun to see what he will pull out of his sleeve next. This week's wacky addition to the racing program is the "Gauntlet Race".


A full size school bus, nicked named, and painted as, "Psyco Dawg" will go toe to paw with four demolition derby cars in a five lap race. If Psyco Dawg makes five complete circuits of the track, then Pat Wilson doesn't have to pay anyone. If the four demolition cars stop the bus from completing five laps, then the demo cars get $500.


Plus, just to make things even more exciting, the track is going to be littered with a bone yard, various obstacles placed on the track to hinder, or help, "Psyco Dawg"


Wilson, the long time promoter of Texas Thunder Speedway, is itching for this race. "It's going to wacky and wild", Wilson said. When asked if four cars can stop a bus from completing five laps? "I sure hope not", he said, "I don't want to lose 500 bones"!


The National Banks of Texas are sponsoring the rest of the action this week, as all six of the regular classes will race before the "Gauntlet Race.


Gates open at 6:00 PM and racing starts at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $10 for Adults, $3 for kids 6-12 and kids under 6 are free. Season passes are available as well.
