OKC & Tulsa join Sprint Bandits lineup as Devil's Bowl adds another

TULSA, Okla. (February 3, 2004) -- Oklahoma City's State Fair Speedway and Tulsa Speedway are among the latest additions to the inaugural Sprint Bandits schedule, with Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX, adding a second Sprint Bandits date to the 2004 slate.

The Sprint Bandits series will take to Tulsa Speedway's three-eighths mile clay oval on Saturday night, May 22. Then, a week after the series' first stop at Knoxville Raceway, State Fair Speedway will host the first night of the Sprint Bandits Spring Nationals on Friday, June 4, with Devil's Bowl Speedway hosting round two of the Sprint Bandits Spring Nationals the next night, Saturday, June 5.

The Devil's Bowl stanza of the Sprint Bandits Spring Nationals will be the second stop of the season at the famed, high-speed half-mile oval, as the series first-ever event takes place on March 19-20 with the 31st Annual Devil's Bowl Spring Nationals.

Founded by Emmett Hahn, the Sprint Bandits series has been created in an effort to revitalize 410-ci Sprint Car racing, in part by utilizing cost-cutting rules including the use of a series head, spec right rear tire and eliminating the wicker bill on wings. These rules will also combine to unhook the cars, thereby making the driver a greater part of the equation, resulting in more competitive Sprint Car racing.

The Sprint Bandits series has also unveiled an innovative new racing format, including the use of passing points in both Heat Races and Qualifying Races to determine feature lineups, which is designed to deliver more competitive racing for the benefit of fans and drivers alike.

The balance of the 2004 Sprint Bandits schedule, which will include 20- 25 nights of racing, will be announced soon.
