:30 105 REWIND: The last time the Sprint Car Bandits were at 105 Speedway in 2018, a fantastic racing surface greeted the 24 SCB race teams for a night of exciting
racing action. Scottie McDonald took command from polesitter and Washington state native Seth Bergman to score a very popular $2,000 win with the local crowd.
Bergman took home $1,000 for finishing second, with popular DFW area racer John Ricketts finishing in 3rd.
RACE FANS: Make plans to arrive early at the track to take in the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits “Fierce 15” Fan Fest! It will take place directly next to the main ticket window
from 5pm until about 5:45pm. There, you can meet the drivers of the Fierce 15, get selfies, purchase their 2019 t-shirt designs (get them autographed!) and get a good
close look at the cars. SCB Fan Fest is an effort to help sprint car racing get back to the good ‘ol days when there was generally more fan interaction with the race teams.
Back then it was common for most of the fans to go to the pits after the races to meet with the teams, and now in many cases the races at tracks don’t finish in time to make
that feasible. This is an effort to fire back up that interaction by simply flipping the timing element. Pre-race Fan Fest will take place at every SCB series event in 2019.
The following drivers make up the 2019 Sprint Car Bandits Fierce 15 and will be competing for added money for their support of the series: Colby Estes, Michael Day,
Claud Estes III, Dalton Stevens, Scott Evans, Chance McCrary, Dale Wester, Junior Jenkins, Cody Hall, Josh Hawkins, Casey Burkham, Steve McMackin, Will Eggimann,
Mark Zoeller and Mark Huddleston. Fans can expect to see these drivers competing in 2019 Sprint Car Bandits series events, along with any eligible sprint car driver that
chooses to race with the series on a night-to-night basis – as was the case in previous seasons. Drivers interested in the Sprint Car Bandits Fierce 15 program can contact
SprintCarBandits@outlook.com for additional information.
If you’d like to get your brand new Fierce 15 driver t-shirts prior to Fan Fest, the new online store at www.SprintCarBandits.com is now open and it costs just more $3 to
have your item shipped to you.

FUNNY 105 FACTOID: Why is this event called the Liberty 25? Primarily because the track and Cleveland are in Liberty County, and it is paying deference to the area, its
history and its residents. But not so fast! What’s entertaining, after speaking with the track owner, Jerry Brown, the county line actually runs through the pit area of the
property! So, although the Liberty 25 will technically take place in Liberty County, the race car drivers have to come from Montgomery County to race in it! I thought
everyone would get a chuckle out of this little-know 105 Speedway factoid.
RACE TEAMS: all sprint car teams that sign in will draw for heat race starting positions, regardless of their engine C.I. displacement (up to and including 360C.I.) and will
receive passing points to determine their straight-up from points feature race starting position. All drivers make sure to read the posted rules at the series website prior to
heading to the track.
