GIBSONTON, FL - The All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars have finalized details for the invasion of Stanley Kolan's East Bay Raceway Nov. 1-2-3 for their season ending trio of races. The three-day show will pay a total purse of $113,740, with Thursday and Friday's preliminary features paying $4,000 to win and $400 to start. Saturday's finale will pay $30,000 to win and $500 to take the green in the A Main. An open competition show for 360 sprints will also be run all three days. Each evening will be a complete racing program.

The memory of John Bankston, a driver who was killed at Eldora Speedway this summer in All Star action, will also be honored. John Bankston Celebration Day will be held Friday night Nov. 2. The All Star feature and companion 360 sprint feature will be dedicated to Bankston. Each feature winner will receive a plaque commemorating the win on Bankston's night.

Saturday's East Bay finale will decide the All Star 2001 points championship, which currently shows Kenny Jacobs ahead of Chad Kemenah by a mere 16 markers. Up for grabs are also fourth in points, with Dean Jacobs ahead of Greg Wilson by only 16 points and tenth place in the standings which currently has Rob Chaney and Barry Ruble tied with 2106 points each. In addition, the 360 sprint winner will receive $10,000. Also on tap for the weekend is a Teenage National Challenge Race in the 360 class for young up and coming sprint car drivers.
