Limited Double Duty at Devil's Bowl on October 16
TULSA, Okla. (September 1, 2004) - With a large turnout of Sprint Cars expected at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, TX, on Saturday night, October 16, only drivers that have competed on a significant portion of both the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits and ASCS Sooner Region schedules will be permitted to compete in both Sprint Car championship finales.
To compete in both the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits finale and the Second Annual ASCS Gulf South vs. Sooner Region Shootout, a driver must have competed in 60% of this year's Sprint Bandits events and 60% of the ASCS Sooner Regional Tour. Therefore, drivers must have competed in five of the eight Sprint Bandits events and ten of the sixteen ASCS Sooner events that will have been completed prior to the October 16 event.
Drivers that have not competed in at least 60% of the Sprint Bandits events and 60% of the ASCS Sooner Regional tour will only be permitted to compete in one portion of the October 16 Devil's Bowl event.
Currently, Tony Bruce, Jr., and Foster Landon have both taken part in enough Sprint Bandits and ASCS Sooner Region events to pull double duty on October 16. Danny Jennings and Jason Martin each need to compete in one of the remaining four ASCS Sooner Region events to be eligible, while Nick Smith must take part in three of the four Sooner Region events prior to the Devil's Bowl finale to be eligible for competition in both portions of the event.
Three different champions will be crowned at Devil's Bowl Speedway on October 16, including the first O'Reilly Sprint Bandits champion. With only the Devil's Bowl event remaining on the 2004 slate, Bixby, OK, shoe Shane Stewart is in the driver's seat for Sprint Bandit title honors, holding a 38 point lead over Forney, TX, driver Travis Rilat.
In the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region championship chase, Oklahoma City's Andy Shouse currently holds a slim 22 point lead over defending series champion Kevin Ramey of Fort Worth, TX, with Tulsa's Sean McClelland and Liberal, KS, driver Tony Bruce, Jr., also within striking distance.
Texas City, TX, veteran Greg Rilat currently leads a tightly grouped half dozen drivers in the Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores ASCS Gulf South Region points race. Rilat currently leads Humble, TX, driver Chris Sweeney by just ten points, with Jerry Bell, Todd Johnson, Brad Stokes and Scottie McDonald all within 74 points of the leader.
