Sprint Car Bandits "Fall Shootout 25" at 82 Speedway this Saturday, Sept 28


Recommended Posts

The Sprint Car Bandits “Fall Shootout 25" at  82 Speedway – September 28th, 8pm!

- Texas Wing Modified Series will also be racing

Petty, TX (9/24/19) - Next up for the 360 C.I. Sprint Car Bandits® series is a return to the very popular and sprawling (in every respect) ¼ mile of 82 Speedway, located about 15 minutes west of Paris, directly on Hwy 82 in Petty Texas. The event will pay $2,000 to win and down to $300/start with the running of the “Fall Shootout 25” presented by www.FixYourGenerator.com on Saturday September 28th at 7pm. All six divisions of 82 Speedway will be in competition as well, paying very solid purse structures (see below). Fans can expect a full field of many of the region's best dirt track racers to be on hand.

A :30 second look ahead: 82 Speedway track owner, Tracy Peters, had recently suffered the loss of his father, Paul “Patsy” Peters, and Paul’s birthday was on October 12th. 82 Speedway already had a race scheduled for that night, except now it’s going to become the massive $31,000 Paul Peters Memorial event; featuring $2,000 to win each in the Sprint Car Bandits and Touring Outlaw Modified divisions, plus $2,000 to win in the Factory Stocks & $1,200 to win in the Limited Modified division! Paul was known to have a big personality and an even bigger presence, so it’s only fitting to have an event of this magnitude in his honor. Paul was heavily involved throughout the years with several drivers in several divisions, and this huge event will help to celebrate the memory of his life in racing. If you are an individual or business that would like to help build this event even further, please email Darin at dssm93@msn.com for details. A complete event flyer and press release is already posted.

Back to September 28th: If you’ve yet to visit 82 Speedway, it is much closer to DFW than a lot of people think and is NOT the old Paris Speedway southeast of Paris. As a point of reference, including a quick fuel stop, you can get from the intersection of Bass Pro Shops/I-30/Bush in Garland to 82 Speedway in 80 minutes.

Track Directions: Track is located about 1 mile east of Petty Texas right on Hwy 82, which is about 20 minutes east of Bonham and 15 minutes west of Paris. 16369 US Hwy 82 Petty, TX 75470. For track and details, go to www.82speedway.com or www.Facebook.com/82Speedway .

I like to call 82 Speedway ‘The Land of the XL.’ Translated, everything is XL size, such as the 60’ racing surface that is .26 miles on the pole (1/4 mile) then in the groove right at 1/3 mile. There are no walls around the entire track – with lots of runoff space wherever you’re racing, which leads to less tore up equipment. Over-sized grandstands that each have 0% obstructed viewing from whatever spot you choose to view from. Huge spectator and pit parking areas will greet everyone on their arrival. Track owners, Shelley and Tracy Peters who are some of the nicest people you’ll ever come across, and they have been reinvesting in the permanent structure of the facility since they purchased it last year.

Bottom line, if you haven’t been there, here’s your chance on Saturday, September 28th! A full line-up of 82 Speedway racing divisions will be joining the 360C.I. sprint cars, including open comp Modifieds racing for $1,000 to win, Texas Stocks, Limited Modifieds, Factory Stocks (all racing for $500/win); along with Eco Mods & Stocks (each $300/win). Come early for Fan Fest at 6:30pm, with the first green flag set for around 7:30pm (track packing and hot laps are at 7pm). Adult G.A. tickets (sold at gate on race day only) are $17, with kids 6-11 $5. Pit passes are $35, with ages 5 and under $15. Seniors/Military are $15.

Here's the purse structure & details for Saturday September 28th at 82 Speedway. Transponders & RaceCeivers required in all divisions (track rental is available):

Factory Stock, Texas Stocks & Limited Modifieds (same purse structure, each division) features: $500 – 300 – 200 – 160 – 120 – 100 – 90 – 80 – 70 – 60…to start. See details below.

Eco Mods & Eco Stocks (same purse structure each division): $300 – 200 – 160 – 120 – 100 – 80 – 70 – 60 – 50…to start. See details below.

82 Modifieds: $1,000 – 600 – 400 – 300 – 200 – 160 – 120 – 100…to start. No draw fee or entry fee. See details below.

Winged Modifieds: Go to www.TexasWingModifiedAssociation.com for rules and purse structure for this series event.

Regarding 82 Speedway divisions: Non-qualifiers or non-starters that are registered with 82 Speedway for the 2019 racing season will receive $30 each in their division. If a driver chooses to compete in more than one division on the same night, the driver must purchase an additional pit pass per division entered. On regularly scheduled events, if 11 or fewer cars in a division are signed in, the posted purse structure for that division on that night will start at 2nd place pay and continue down from that point on. If the races rain out before the completion of the heat races, hold on to your ticket stub, as it will be valid for the next scheduled race of same ticket price value (in other words, if tickets that night were $15, the next event you will have a $15 credit when you redeem your ticket stub from the previous event). The exact same procedure will be in effect regarding pit passes. If the races rain out after the heat races, the event is considered complete, and any remaining races will not be rescheduled and all drivers will receive start money for their scheduled division that night (for any of the feature events that rained out). There will be no grandstand tickets valid for a future date if races are rained out after the completion of heat races.

Note to drivers: all race teams must run Westhold transponders and RaceCeivers. Track rental is available.
