FORT WORTH-DALLAS (March 6, 2000) - The nation's finest sprint car drivers will have quite a pot of gold to shoot for March 30-31 when the inaugural Southern Bleacher Classic is staged at the brand new Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.
$20,000 of the $102,670 purse will be awarded to the winner of Friday night's 30-lap Pennzoil World of Outlaws feature race over the 4/10-mile banked clay oval. Thursday night's preliminary feature will be worth $5,000 to the first driver to cross the finish line.
Current Pennzoil World of Outlaws point leader Jac Haudenschild, Wooster, Ohio, will lead a large field of the nation's premier sprint car drivers into the event. Also expected are defending Pennzoil WoO titleholder Mark Kinser of Oolitic, Ind.; 15-time series kingpin Steve Kinser, Bloomington, Ind.; Danny Lasoski, Dover, Mo. and three-time champion Sammy Swindell, Cordova, Tenn.
"The first-place payoff, coupled with this being the first race at our state-of-the-art facility, should give fans some of the best racing of this World of Outlaws season," said Texas Motor Speedway general manager Eddie Gossage. "The World of Outlaws is known for its hard-charging racing and $20,000 on the line should make it more interesting."
Tickets are still available for both Thursday and Friday nights' programs at the speedway ticket office, by calling (817) 215-8500, at TicketMaster locations and online at www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
The Pennzoil World of Outlaws Texas Tour kicks off Friday and Saturday nights, March 10-11 at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX.
