Sprint Bandits Slate Memorial Day Weekend Showdown at Knoxville Raceway

TULSA, Okla. (November 4, 2003) - The famed Knoxville Raceway is the latest addition to the 2004 Sprint Bandits schedule, as it was announced today that Emmett Hahn's new 410-ci Sprint Car series is set to take to Iowa's half-mile Marion County Fairgrounds oval on Saturday night, May 29.

The series' first scheduled visit to Knoxville Raceway will be the centerpiece of a full Memorial Day weekend of Sprint Car racing action, with the additional Memorial Day weekend dates and locations to be announced soon.

The Sprint Bandits will feature the use of the Brodix-developed series head, which has been specifically developed to significantly reduce the cost of 410-ci engines as well as extend engine life. The removal of the wicker bill on the top wing, along with tire width and compound rules, will combine to aid in unhooking the cars, thus enabling the driver to become a greater part of the equation and resulting in more competitive and cost-effective 410-ci Sprint Car racing.

As previously announced, the Sprint Bandits will kick off the 2004 season at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX, on March 19-20 with the 31st running of the Devil's Bowl Spring Nationals.

The Sprint Bandits will also take on the wingless stars of the USAC National Sprint Car Series at Memphis Motorsports Park on Saturday night, May 7. The non-point event for the Sprint Bandits will feature an added bonus for any Sprint Bandits shoe that can top the USAC stars on the Memphis oval.

The 410 Sprint Bandits will present a schedule of 25 races in 2004. The balance of the schedule will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
