Sprint Car Bandits Series championship at LoneStar Speedway - October 1


Kilgore, TX (9/9/16) - On June 11th, the Milestone Electric Sprint Car Bandits Series (SCB) thrilled sprint car fans at LoneStar Speedway (LSS) with a dramatic and exciting night of racing. Now, track and series officials are excited to announce that the Sprint Car Bandits Series Championship will take place at LoneStar on Saturday, October 1st at 7pm. An excellent sprint car purse is slated, paying $2,000 to win and down to $300 to start. Plus, it will be a complete night of LSS points divisions racing, rounding out the 5-division program. The SCB feature is currently scheduled to be the second feature race out.


Joining the SCB on Saturday, October 1st at LoneStar Speedway will be a complete program for the high-powered LSS Modifieds ($1,000/win), Factory Stocks ($300/win), Limited Modifieds ($500/win); plus FWD 4-Cylinders will round up the 5-division racing program. Rules and complete payback by division are posted at the LSS website under 'resources.'


The SCB has added $1,000 in cash to the Series base purse structure - at no added cost to the racers, fans, or the track. Here is the complete SCB payback for LoneStar Speedway A-feature, 25 laps: $2,000 - $1,000 - $600 - $500 - $400 - $380 - $360 - $340 - $320 - $300...to start. Any non-qualifier or non-starter will receive $100. There is no entry fee in any division on 10/1 and a pit passes are $30.


SCB series promoter Steve Lang comments: "We had lost some events to rain this season, so we're taking our sponsor dollars and applying them to our final event, as we did at every SCB event this season. Our series really doesn't have much overhead, so we can truly make effective use of the sponsor funds that we've received...and there's no better use of those funds than to pass them along in the form of increased competitor purses."


Lang continues: "Plus, Darin Short is adding to that by providing his 'Free Pass to the Feature' award; which is really unique, simple and exciting."


Here's how the DarinShort.com Free Pass to the Feature works:


-Any SCB driver that finishes outside of a transfer spot to the A-feature (after the B-feature) will have their names thrown in a hat, and the drivers name that gets pulled out will forgo their "$100 Non-qualifier status" and become the 21st starter in the feature race - and in this case - it pays $300 to start!

-Eligible drivers must finish the B-feature to be considered for drawing. (In other words, let's say 9 cars finish the B-feature, and the first 4 transfer to the A. That means those 5 drivers are normally done for the night. However, with this award, drivers finishing in 5th through 9th in the B-feature will be eligible drivers for the DarinShort.com Free Pass to the Feature award.)


Adult tickets (ages 12-64) to this huge event are just $15! Kids ages 6-11 are $5 with Military/Seniors $12. Pit passes for this very special event are remaining at $30 for all ages.


LoneStar Speedway is located at 3131 FM 1252 Kilgore, TX 75662, Track Phone on race day is: (903)-986-9731. Specifically, if you are on I-20 (either direction) take Exit 583 and head north to the 4-way stop light (about 1/2 mile). Go east (right) about 1 mile and you will see the track entrance on the south (right) side of the road. Their web address is www.LoneStarSpeedway.com and search for them on Facebook by entering: "LoneStar Speedway Fan Page."


The pit area on October 1st opens by 3pm with the main grandstand opening by 5:30pm, draw cutoff at 6:15pm, hot laps at 7:00pm and racing to follow immediately. The sun goes down by 7pm on this date, so it will make for excellent racing conditions.


The Sprint Car Bandits series is dedicated to help bringing back some of the old-time fun of sprint car racing, yet incorporating some much-needed basic adjustments that help the teams stay on track with their budget - and fans not having to pay excessively high ticket prices to enjoy watching them. Race fans can expect a great mix of young and veteran drivers competing with the Sprint Car Bandits.


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.


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, high-speed 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!

As this season ending event is upon us for the SCB, we would like to thank the drivers, fans, area racetracks and sponsors for their support of this new series. We're looking forward to having another great night of racing when the Sprint Car Bandits series takes on the high banks of LoneStar Speedway on Saturday, October 1st with the Series Championship!
