First-ever Sprint Car Bandits event at Golden Triangle, July 29th

Recommended Posts



Beaumont, TX (06/30/17) - Officials from the Golden Triangle Raceway Park (GTRP) and the NCRA Sprint Car Bandits (SCB) series presented by Blaine's Motor Supply are pleased to announce a big night of racing, set for Saturday July 29th at 8pm. An excellent competitor purse of $2,000 to win and $350 just to start is in place. As a matter of fact, all positions from 3rd on back will receive increased driver payback at this event. Joining the 360 C.I. fuel injected winged Sprint Cars will be the GTRP racing divisions (those details to be posted soon).


Fans can expect a great field of top Sprint Car teams from throughout the region, with drivers such as: Justin Melton, Zane Lawrence, Michael Lang, Colby Estes, Michelle Melton, Tucker Doughty, Chance McCrary, Junior Jenkins, Chase Parson, Cody Stacy, Brad Welborn, Chad Wilson, Steve McMackin, Brad Queen, Claud Estes III, Dalton Stevens, Dustin Gates, Gary Floyd, DJ Estes...plus several more 'invaders' will round out the field, as there are no other 360C.I. sprint car events within several hundred miles of GTRP on July 29th.


Since this is the first SCB event in the gulf area of Texas, it is important for area sprint car drivers to be aware of the SCB rules, and how simple it is to participate in the series. So here are some quick, top-line notes:

- There is no Series license, registration or entry fee due from sprint car teams to the SCB.

- Car rules are very similar to your existing area 360C.I. sprint rules. However the Series does have very strict wing angle rules and rear tire rules, which are all posted at the series site. All SCB rules will be enforced, so drivers need to read the posted rules prior to arriving at the track.

- We recommend that drivers new to the SCB for this event contact the series director, Steve Lang, prior to race day simply as a 411 and to field any questions you may have.

All NQ or Non-Starters receive $100. Standard SCB rules and procedures are in effect. Click www.SprintCarBandits.com for all series rules - which will be enforced, as always.

Sprint car teams in the area are quickly figuring out that between the Sprint Car Bandits (SCB) restricted wing angle rule and rear tire rules that they are able to be in more control of 'driving' their cars - while saving a lot of money on tire expense.


2016 SCB runner-up in series points, Junior Jenkins comments: "We are a budget conscious team, and since we started racing with the Sprint Car Bandits at the beginning of last year, we have noticed a sizable difference in our net nightly cost vs. earnings, and it has helped keep us on the track. Plus I feel it has substantially closed the gap in the competition, giving more drivers a fighting chance."


That rules package certainly has the vote of many of the drivers in 2017, as 49 teams have already competed in the SCB in the first four events of the season.


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 fans getting to see quality 360 C.I. 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!
