Short Track Nationals Provisional up for Grabs at I-30 Sprint Bandits Event

TULSA, Okla. (May 4, 2004) -- The wide-open excitement of 410-ci Sprint Car racing returns to Little Rock's I-30 Speedway next Friday and Saturday, May 14-15, as the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits invade Tracey Clay's high-banked quarter-mile oval.

Increasing the stakes, Saturday night's winner will also be awarded a provisional starting position in the 17th Annual Short Track Nationals.

Along with Saturday night's $6,000 winner's share, the STN provisional is worth a minimum of $1,700. I-30 Speedway's 17th Annual Short Track Nationals, slated to take place October 28-30, features $15,000-to-win and $1,700-to-start in the prestigious 360-ci Sprint Car event.

Also, an extra $500 is available if the driver that tops Wednesday night's O'Reilly Sprint Bandits event at Auto Tire & Parts Race Park in Benton, MO, can repeat the feat on Saturday night at I-30 Speedway.

An additional $200 is up for grabs for the top-finishing 360-ci entry in Friday's feature, with $300 for the top 360 on Saturday.
