Recording artist and The Voice contestant Trey Rose was on hand to meet with the fans during the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest. Trey would also
kick off opening ceremonies by singing The National Anthem before a very appreciative crowd.  Click https://youtu.be/7Cn8N4W9UCY if you’d like to see
the video of his performance. Trey’s appearance at the event was provided by the Sprint Car Bandits series.

Special thanks to
www.facebook.com/BeesParis and www.facebook.com/DQ14471 (Applebee’s in Paris, TX and Dairy Queen on Lamar Street in Paris) for
providing Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest giveaways for fans and kids. Over 100 kids swag bags were given away during Fan Fest.
The www.KoolTrikes.com heat race winners were Will Eggimann and Casey Burkham. Burkham won his heat from the 4th starting position, which gave him
enough overall points to become the
www.FixYourGenerator.com High Points Award recipient – and an additional $100 from Fred Summers, sponsor of
the award.

The 25-lap series championship feature would fire off with similar fashion of the last series stop at 82 Speedway, that being, the race would go green for a
long distance. But on lap 23 disaster struck that all began when the left rear tire on Will Eggimann’s J&J Racing sprinter would somehow slide off its
beadlock wheel causing him to lose speed going down the backstretch. Chipper Wood clipped his left side, as did the second place driver of polesitter
Casey Burkham, all culminating with the #71 of Colby Estes getting crossed up and upside down just past the apex of corners 3 and 4.

During the red flag stoppage, outside front row starter and leader, Michael Day, would not be able to refire after the yellow flag came out to resume the
race, forcing Day pitside for the remaining two laps.

Meanwhile, Eggimann had dropped pitside after sustaining damage on that backstretch fracas…which suddenly put Dale Wester in prime position to claim
the points championship!

The event resumed with a torrid 3-car battle up front between Burkham, Stubblefield and Wester. Stubblefield briefly took the lead before Burkham would
take command, while Wester would take second place from Stubblefield. But when they crossed the finish line, Burkham would end up taking home $2,100
for the win, with Stubblefield regaining second from Wester on the final lap.

When the mud clods quit flying, it appeared that Wester should have finished high enough to claim the Series title – however after adding and re-adding
the points totals, Eggimann had garnered 8 more markers than Wester in the final points battle.

After the event, Dale Wester was smiling from ear to ear and commented: “I really had fun racing this series. I came to the track tonight with the attitude
that I’m just going to do my best, and whatever happens, happens. And it sure was close at the end!”

A stunned Eggimann had to be towed into victory lane to receive his championship award – after thinking that his DNF was going to cost him the title. But
after he reviewed the points, before and after, he had the following comments to make: “This is the first time in my racing career that I’ve been able to
follow a complete series from start to finish, and a lot of that had to do with favorable economics of the Sprint Car Bandits rules package. Between the wing
angle and ‘one tire all night’ rules of the ‘Bandits, not only does it make for consistently good racing, but it helps keep all the racer’s budgets regarding
consumables in check…and as a byproduct, it even produces consistently competitive races.”

Eggimann continues: “All season long, faster cars have been able to advance positions on the tracks that our series go to – so clearly – this series has
got a rules package that works for racers and track promoters alike, which is really refreshing when so much of sprint car racing nationwide is being
controlled by high budget teams, which is not economically sustainable to the majority of the other teams. I’m thankful for the rules platform that the Sprint
Car Bandits has developed, because I’m not a big budget team.”

Following Eggimann’s sentiment, Steve Golightly, 8-year executive crew chief on the #74E of Claud Estes III, comments: “Everyone knows that sprint car
racing is expensive, and the Estes family regularly fields 3-4 cars at Sprint Car Bandits events. What we have found is that between the strong series
purse structure and tire/wing angle rules, we’re able to keep fielding cars without burning up our racing budget.”

Golightly continues: “I just took a picture of Claud’s left rear tire after tonight’s feature race. It looks brand new. That tire has 33 laps on it from tonight, plus
hot laps – and it’s the same tire we used at the last ‘Bandits event, where we had to run 45 laps due to being in the B-feature. By the time you had hot laps
to it, that tire easily has 85 laps on it – and it will be used again at our next ‘Bandits race.”

In the past, co-crew chief’s on the Estes cars Doc Miller and Lonnie Bright help keep the family team hitting the track with well-prepared cars at each series
event, and their past service is much appreciated. Claud would finish 2019 Series points in 3rd place. 2018 SCB series champion Colby Estes would end
up in 5th place this season (after missing the opening night due to family obligations).

Sprint Car Bandits Finale
Ends with Wild Event at 82;
2020 Schedule Posted

Garland, TX (10/16/19) Track/Series
Publicity & Event Marketing by
DarinShort.com. The conclusion of the
4th season of the Sprint Car Bandits®
series was held this past Saturday,
October 12th at 82 Speedway in Petty,
Texas with the running of the $31,500
Paul Peters Memorial event. Going into
the final event, the series
championship was still up for grabs,
with a scant 27 points separated points
leader Will Eggimann over Dale
Wester, which roughly equated to 5
finishing positions that Wester needed
to finish ahead of Eggimann to claim
the title.

But before we jump right to the center
of the cinnamon roll, let’s rewind the
night as it unfolded:

Cool-ish, yet clear and calm fall
weather conditions greeted the fans
and 100 race teams assembled in four
divisions, after a strong storm system
exited the area the day before.
Sprint Car Bandits Enter 5th Season with
Same Drive & Dedication to the Sport

Garland TX (10/18/19) by DarinShort.com.  You can think about it.
You can talk about it. Or you can do it. That famous Nike adage
still rings through today similar in the actions of the Sprint Car
Bandits series.

At the series inception five years ago, we identified a primary
concern of sprint car racing, from the fan, track & team
standpoint; which was the change in economics associated with
the sport after the events of 9/11/01.

The impacts of 9/11 were never really addressed across the
board (fans, teams and tracks) and it began to take its toll.
Specifically, the cost of fuel for teams and fans doubled (from
averages pre-9/11 of around $1.50 for gas or diesel), and for
quite a while costs were substantially more than double.

All the sudden, everyone had a substantially increased cost to
attend or participate in an event, which squeezed everyone’s
budgets. Yet nothing in the financial model changed – as the
tracks alone couldn’t absorb the impact.

Fans started saying “hey, it now costs us more to get there and
back than the tickets cost” and started factoring that reality in to
their decision-making process. The teams felt it even more, which
made traveling to events further away less attractive – and
feasible.

Of course, some of these changes to the matrix weren’t felt across
the board nationwide for quite some time, but the majority of
tracks have felt its impact.

Of course, some of these changes to the matrix weren’t felt across the board nationwide for quite some time, but the majority of tracks have felt its impact.

Pushing that aside for a moment, we have to factor in that we’re all just cogs on a wheel in this sport. We all need each other for it to work and sustain
itself. Fans and teams need racing venues, and the venues need the fans and teams.

Paralleling the timeline and economic effects of 9/11 is the fact that there has been a significant increase in the entertainment options available to fans –
that tracks didn’t have to contend with in the previous decades. So now the tracks had a double dose of impacts going forward.

This means the fan entertainment component had to be addressed, which is one of the primary focus items of the Sprint Car Bandits series.

Back in the day, there were enough fans attending sprint car events that in many cases there might only be one support division, and the races would be
over early enough for fans to flood the pits to meet their favorite drivers.

In many cases now tracks can only swing a quality sprint show by adding several divisions to the racing program, which makes it very hard to connect fans
to teams – as they finish later.

That’s where the Sprint Car Bandits pre-race Fan Fest comes in. We simply bring the teams to the fans, exactly inverted to the way it was in the past –
but it still generates the same result, as fans now can interact with the teams again.

That is step one in the fan-focus commitment of the Sprint Car Bandits series.

The next step is to address the economic reality of travel expenses. So, the Sprint Car Bandits developed a simple solution – that didn’t require teams to
go buy some expensive ‘fix’, like under the hood.

We restricted the maximum wing angle to 20° (degrees) and require the left rear tire to be a 92 casing – and that teams must run the same two rear tires
throughout the racing program.

And not only has it worked, it’s REALLY worked.

We have proven that you can run the same set of tires all night because the wing angle rule restricts just enough downforce that doesn’t cause excess
wear.

That in itself has saved race teams in the Sprint Car Bandits series $1,000’s annually in consumables – which helps to bridge that gap caused by the
increased travel expenses of 9/11.

But that’s not all. It’s also allowed the cars to be more freed up so faster cars can pass easier – bringing back what fans want: more racing and less follow-
the-leader racing. In other words, fans are getting to consistently see more entertaining racing – which helps with fan retention.

And if you don’t believe that is an important fan component, you don’t have to look hard to see that this is a constant fan complaint on the forums of sprint
car racing today.

Here’s a live post on the subject:
www.hoseheadforums.com/forum.cfm?ThreadID=113502  

If you take a moment to skim the post you will see all kinds of ‘what if they did this’ scenarios, from changing track lengths, engine components, wing sizes;
etc.

In the opinion of the series, why go through all of that when our rules address pretty much all of it – without having anyone going through the expense of
reinventing the wheel.

And we’ve proved it with our base rules package, as we have no rules changes in the pipeline for 2020 – nor have we – since series inception five years
ago.

For race teams that want to be rewarded more for their driving skill and ability to set up a car – not just having a big budget to gain their edge, the Sprint
Car Bandits continues to prove its rules work in the results. In the past 29 Sprint Car Bandits events there have been 19 different winners. Not to dog on
the WoO by any means, but they’ve complete 67 events in 2019, yet have exactly the same amount of different winners, 19.

In addition, we do not penalize top performing drivers in our heat races. We line up feature events straight up by driver’s performance. Yet, that doesn’t
mean it’s a ‘gimme’ in the Sprint Car Bandits, as in those same past 29 feature events, the polesitter, or top qualifier didn’t end up winning the feature
event 19 times.

Our simple and effective rules package (that takes a couple of crew guys about a half hour to make their existing cars ‘rules compliant’ for the Sprint Car
Bandits) has essentially opened up this series to just about any engine platform – and it has been proven in driver results. We’ve had teams race with us
that have carbureted 360’s under the hood (and competitively, I might add), along with other popular 360 and smaller C.I. configurations – and ALL have
found they can be competitive as long as they can drive and set up a car properly. We even know of two teams that are building a LS engine platform for
2020.

This all results in one primary statement: you cannot ‘buy’ wins in the Sprint Car Bandits by outspending the competition.

Of course, that doesn’t work for all race teams out there, especially the few that are well funded, but the few that are well funded doesn’t generate enough
numbers to make the sport sustainable. Our platform has allowed racers of all backgrounds the opportunity to compete with teams of a wide range of
budgets. Yet, we’ve had well-funded teams race with the Sprint Car Bandits throughout each season and virtually all of them understand our rules and
were very quick to adapt to them. Many commented, on an unsolicited level, immediately after jumping out of their cars how much fun they had racing with
our rules package.

Click www.SprintCarBandits.com then the rules tab to check out the details of our rules package.

We are constantly receiving feedback from teams racing to us regarding how the Sprint Car Bandits purse structure and rules package helps keep them
more ‘on track’ with their weekly racing budget.

There are areas in the country that have adopted similar rules with great success, primarily in Minnesota and Michigan.

Veteran and young drivers alike have found success in the series – and the parity between age/experience ranges was incredible in 2018:

5 features were won by what I call ‘Young Guns’, with 5 features won by experienced drivers and 5 were won by veteran drivers. Then to add even more to
the mix, was the fact that there was also a female ‘Young Gun’ winning a feature last year…technically making the Young Guns the overall winners by
group last year.

Next up, the Sprint Car Bandits understands that just booking events isn’t enough.

We are not only hitting on all 8-cylinders in our rules, we also deliver results to our marketing partners, tracks and fans by providing complete pre-race
marketing materials, updates and post-event recaps. This gives Series tracks the leg-up to be able to afford to host our events as they’re given the tools
to properly promote their event well in advance…which leads to higher fan attendance.

Each event, the Series, the Series tracks and teams are out doing it – not just talking about it. The ‘talking about it’ phase took place the previous 10
years to the inception of this series.

Now it will be interesting to see if more tracks and series dare to step out of the norm and try to do something positive to affect change, and progress, in
their area.

On a personal note, nationwide this season I’ve seen more driver press releases out there stating something to the effect of “Bad Draw-Ins Lead to
Subpar Weekend Results” or top-notch drivers commenting “this format made me start too far back to win.” Well, some common sense may need to be
factored in here. If you can’t pass because the cars are all locked down, is it the format causing the problem – or the car rules they are racing with?  

Change in this sport moves at a glacial pace, and that’s OK. And for those that support our series, we appreciate the fact that they get it and we’re
honored to give them a platform to race with that is not only sustainable, but competitive, fun and a 21st century solution to changing economic times.

Sprint Car Bandits 2020 Tour Kicks Off at
Heart O’ Texas – March 20th

Elm Mott, TX (02/11/20) by DarinShort.com. The 360C.I. NCRA Sprint
Car Bandits (SCB) series kicks off the 2020 tour at the 1/4 mile
'bullring' oval of Heart O' Texas Speedway (HOT) in Waco on Friday,
March 20th with the running of the Gordon Woolley Classic. This
annual event celebrating the life, history and racing career of the First
member of the Heart O' Texas Wall of Fame, Gordon Wooley, kicks off
the sprint car action at the speedway for the 2020 season.

Let’s jump right in to the nuts and bolts:

RACE FANS: Make plans to arrive early at the track to take in the pre-
race Sprint Car Bandits  Fan Fest! It will take place directly next to the
main ticket window from 6:30pm until about 7:00pm. There, you can
meet the drivers of the Sprint Car Bandits, get selfies, purchase series
racing apparel & merchandise (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 2020…as was the case in 2019.

If you’d like to get your series t-shirts prior to Fan Fest, the online
store at www.SprintCarBandits.com has them on sale right now!

Drive Waco, TX 76640 (just north of town right off of I-35); track phone
is 254-829-2294. Action fires up at 8pm on March 20th.

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. Mandatory drivers meeting and draw cut-off is at
6:15pm.

The standard posted SCB purse and rules are in effect. All non-
qualifiers or non-starters will each receive $100. As in 2019, there is
no entry fee, no series membership fee and a $20 nightly draw fee.
Drivers should go to www.SprintCarBandits.com prior to arrival for
complete rules, purse and procedures information.

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. The SCB “20° wing angle rule” also
helps by freeing up the cars to be able to pass easier in many cases
that also helps reduce excess tire and engine wear. Our ‘one rear tire
all night long’ rule has saved racers thousands of dollars over the past
four seasons.

All these small, yet effective changes, have been accomplished without
the racers having to purchase something out of the ordinary. And we
essentially haven’t changed the rules since the inception of the series
at the end of 2015.

And let’s face it, since the events of 9/11/2001, a lot of the economics
of the sport of dirt track racing have changed drastically (especially the
cost of travel, track insurance, general crowd sizes, cost of racing
components), yet there really hasn’t been much being done on a
nationwide level to help counteract those economic impacts. We aren’t
trying to say we’ve ‘fixed’ all those impacts, but at least we are doing
something to help curb racer expenses – and it’s working.

Our rules package certainly has made for exciting and unpredictable
racing outcomes – as in the past 32 series events there have been 20
different feature winners!

*2020 SERIES OPENER* 360C.I. SPRINT CAR BANDITS will be RIDIN' THE RAIL AT K-DALE on SATURDAY MARCH 28th – 7pm!

>Regarding the Friday, March 20th HOT Speedway​ SCB event: The track is temporarily suspending their season due to activity restricting
recommendations being put in place by the city they are located in. Assuming things come back online there relatively soon, the track fully intends on
providing the SCB with a replacement date for the Gordon Woolley Classic at that time. (On an unrelated yet similar note, it's supposed to continue
raining all this week in Waco anyway, including a 80% chance of precip this Thu/Fri, so it had a really good chance of raining out as is.)

BACK TO KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK​...

Kennedale, TX (03/16/20) by DarinShort.com. The best 360C.I. powered Sprint Car teams of the region will be assembled to figuratively and literally
shred the black dirt of the ¼ mile KENNEDALE SPEEDWAY PARK on Saturday March 28th at 7pm, when the NCRA Sprint Car Bandits® (SCB) series
presents the running of the 2nd Annual Spring Championship.

Track Promoter Tony Dycus comments: “Last year the NCRA Sprint Car Bandits series brought a great group of cars to Kennedale Speedway Park,
with a huge crowd attending the event, and a non-stop 25-lapper that featured Chad Wilson blasting his way by the lead pair of Jeb Sessums and
eventually Marcus Thomas to put on a convincing win - which was popular with our fans as he's raced at KSP many times. This year we’re giving fans
more of what they want, so we’d added a second date for the SCB in 2020, which will be on Saturday, September 26th. And we’re holding the line on
ticket pricing. Adults can get in to see these events for just $16 so more families can afford to take it in.”

Pit Gates open at 4pm on race day, Saturday March 28th, with racing at 7pm. Grandstands open at 5pm. KSP divisions will round out the very full night
of racing, including IMCA Modifieds, SportMods, Stock Cars & Sport Compact divisions; plus the Factory Stocks and Junior Mini Stocks. The SCB are
slated to run 2nd or 3rd division out for the feature event (determined by when optimum track conditions for sprint cars exist, as all SCB events.).

RACE FANS: Make plans to arrive early at the track to take in the pre-race Sprint Car Bandits Fan Fest! It will take place directly next to the main ticket
window from 5:30pm until just about 6pm. There, you can meet the SCB drivers, get selfies, purchase apparel (get them autographed!) and get a good
close look at the cars and put a face to a car number.

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 again in 2020.

If you’d like to get series t-shirts prior to Fan Fest, the online store at www.SprintCarBandits.com has them for sale right now.

Kennedale Speedway Park (KSP) is located at 6727 Hudson Village Creek Kennedale, TX 76060. Click www.raceKSP.com for complete track details.

POSTED 3/23/20:   Hello Sprint Car Bandits Series Fans, Race Teams, Sponsors & Workers.

As you all know, tracks and racing series such as ours need to lay low for now until we get the official 'green
light' when we can all  go back to racing. The moment that happens, we'll put out event info here and on FB.

In the background, we're doing our best to reschedule any events that we lose along the way with our tracks.

In the meantime make the best of being around your family & be safe out there...see you all again soon!
POSTED 3/27/20 by 82 Speedway: Hello 82 Speedway Fans, Race Teams, Track Sponsors, Vendors & Workers.

As you all know, businesses such as ours need to lay low for now until we get the official 'green light' when we can

all go back to racing. The moment that happens, we'll put out event info here and on Facebook.

If we happen to miss a Series event along the way, we'll do everything we can to get that event rescheduled.
For example, the Sprint Car Bandits event set at 82 for April 4th will most likely be moved to the
rain date we established for it last fall, which is Saturday April 25th.

Again, just check our Facebook page or 82Speedway.com often for the latest updates.
It only takes us a few hours
to get things running on all 8-cylinders once we're given the go-ahead.
