HOLLINGSWORTH TUNES UP FOR SPRINT BANDITS TNT WITH GAS CITY WIN
GAS CITY, Ind. (August 12, 2006)- Throwing his hat into the mix for O'Reilly Sprint Bandits COMP Cams Tour 'N Topless Midwest Swing title honors, Indianapolis racer Shane Hollingsworth tuned up with a win in Friday night's 25-lap weekly feature at Gas City I-69 Speedway.
Hollingsworth, who recently joined forces with the Trucker's 24-Hour Road Service No. 10 team, made a daring move to take the lead from Travis Welpott on the eighth lap then fought off Shane Cottle to secure the win.
"This is a nice paycheck, and now we're heading out west for the Sprint Bandits TNT swing and hopefully we can come back with a lot of that money," an enthused Hollingsworth told the large crowd in victory lane.
Hollingsworth took his first checkered flag aboard the Trucker's No. 10 in front of Cottle, who finished seventh in Tuesday night's Sprint Bandits TNT Southern Iowa Speedway Ultimate Challenge event, with Ultimate Challenge runner-up Bryan Clauson finishing third aboard the Goacher No. 5g.
Dave Darland and current Sprint Bandits TNT point leader Cory Kruseman bounced back to finish ninth and tenth, respectively, after a mid-race tangle.
The Second Annual O'Reilly Sprint Bandits COMP Cams Tour 'N Topless journey through the Midwest begins Tuesday night, August 15, at Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway before moving on to 81 Speedway in Wichita, KS, on Wednesday night. From there, the series moves on to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO, on Thursday night before wrapping up with the two-night $10,000-to-win finale at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS, on Friday and Saturday, August 18 and 19.
More than $85,000 in "A" Feature purse money will be up for grabs over the course of the five nights, with another $7,350 awarded to the top five point earners for the handful of events.
