O'REILLY SPRINT BANDITS TNT MIDWEST SWING ANNOUNCED
TULSA, Okla. (February 23, 2006)- An explosive six nights of wingless Sprint Car racing action are slated for this August as the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits Tour 'N Topless series has set its second annual swing through the Midwest.
The Sprint Bandits TNT Midwest swing will kick off on Tuesday night, August 8, with the prestigious Non-Wing Ultimate Challenge at Oskaloosa's Southern Iowa Speedway, which features a $30,000 winner's share. Levi Jones is the race's defending winner, as he kicked off his 2005 Sprint Bandits TNT championship charge with a big payday.
A week later, upon the conclusion of the Knoxville Nationals, the wingless warriors kick up the clay with the Second Annual Huskerland Non-Wing 410 Sprint Car Nationals at Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, NE, on Tuesday night, August 15. Last year, Jones outdueled Dickie Gaines early then held off Bud Kaeding to top a thrilling initial edition of the Huskerland Nationals.
A couple of new TNT stops are next on the agenda, with Wichita's 3/8-mile 81 Speedway slated for Wednesday night, August 16. It will mark the first wingless, 410-ci Sprint Car event at 81 Speedway since 2001 when Mike Kirby beat Richard Griffin and John Scott to the line in SCRA action.
On Thursday night, August 17, the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits TNT series brings the unparalleled excitement of wingless Sprint Cars to "The Diamond of Dirt Tracks", Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO, for the first time in track history.
The series then wraps up with the traditional two-night Kansas classic at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS. The August 18-19 double offers up $10,000 to the winner of the Saturday night finale. Bud Kaeding held off Jones to win the '05 edition of the race, marking his second win in the event after a 2002 triumph.
